The date and venue are set for the second ever World Cup of Pool. 32 nations of two man teams will be competing for a share of the $250,000 prize fund with the $60,000 first prize.
Defending champions and Number 1 seeds the Phillipines (Efren Reyes & Francisco Bustamante) will be looking to make it two from two and in the first round have what on paper looks like an easy match against Scotland (Pat Holtz & Michael Valentine). I am sure the Scottish lads will want to prove me wrong and Pat in particular has been in excellent form this year with a semi-final finish in the World Pool Masters.
