Fifth and Last IPT Qualification Event BeginsThe last International Pool Tour qualification tournament kicked off this morning at House of Billiards in Weert, The Netherlands. Room owner Maurice Houben reported being pleased to host the IPT’s event, having had many large European events here in the past.There are only four players from the U.S.: Louis Ulrich, Frankie Hernandez, Steve Moore, Gary Abood, and Robb Saez. The largest player factions come from Germany and England. It is rumored that the Filipino players had difficulties receiving visas, so Santos Sambajon Jr. is the only representative.Like at the previous qualifiers, the IPT is again offering $500 to players who sink the 8 ball on the break, and $5,000 for players who run six racks consecutively in competition. Mike “The Mouth” Sigel is not present in Holland for challenge matches, but there are whispers of some tour members coming in Saturday instead.
