Please read below an important message from the Executive Producer of the championship.

“Throughout a decade, Dragon Promotions has been able to revitalize straight pool back into the sport and to new audiences. In 2006, straight pool was near it’s complete death in the US. Since then we have poured our resources in media, finance, and know-how to grow the popularity of 14.1. Today, the consensus among the professionals on tour is that the World 14.1 is one of, if not the most, important titles to win in America. Something we didn’t expect all those years ago.

So as we pledge to continue this crusade for the 11th straight year in a row, and hopefully for many years to come, and if you think this tradition is worthy to live on, we ask you to lend your support.”
