Dear pool enthusiasts,
the pool year 2017 is slowly coming to its end with our attention already focused on January, where the grand finale of the German Tour, the German Pool Masters is already going into its third year.
From January 2nd to 7th 2018, more than 300 players will be competing for more than a 22.000€ purse in 3 different divisions (Open, Women, Handicap). The event will take place in 3 different venues in the cities of Sindelfingen, Pfullingen as well as Stuttgart.
Those are just dry numbers but the German Tour has become much more than that. It's symbolizing a huge upswing in the German tournament scene which was slowly dying of lack of participants. Since it first started 3 years ago, it accumulated nearly 6.000 players that competed in a mere 1.000 tournaments.
The live stream that started just 2 years ago is already generating numbers that are even getting interesting for TV producers.
All that is made possible not only by the numerous viewers on their devices at home but also due to relentless support by all the sponsors that are involved doing anything within their possibilities to make great things like the German Pool Masters happen. Above all Billard Beckmann as the main supporter but also numerous other companies from various sectors are securing the live stream production to be successful. All of them are entitled to our unconditional appreciation and will all be presented here on this website in the near future.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Billiards Association, the German Billiards Union, and the BVBW (Baden-Württemberg billiard association), which support the German Pool Masters tremendously.
Like in previous years the final tournament will be presenting numerous highlights led by the "Battle of Legends" with Ralf Souquet, Efren Reyes, Francisco Bustamante and Earl Strickland with the latter three going on tour throughout Germany at a total of up to 8 different venues with half of the tour being sold out already. We are positive to announce all tour dates in the very near future.
The German Pool Masters might not be biggest event in existence, it also might not have the biggest prize pool but we want it to be the most affectionate and the most attractive one in a comfortable atmosphere but nonetheless with a high standard of play.
I want to end my greetings with the best wishes to all of you for the rest of 2017. Be safe and enjoy christmas time as well as new year with your loved ones and see you all on January 2nd at the German Pool Masters.
