We’ll be officially announcing this tomorrow, but our blog readers get to hear it first. Since the turnout was so strong for the first WPBA pick’em event, we’ve decided to do another one before the WPBA US Open. With that, we’re pleased to announce that PoolDawg’s WPBA at Borderline Pick’em is now open!
For those who haven’t heard, the WPBA is putting on a satellite event which is open to WPBA players as well as regional players who haven’t made it on the tour yet. This event will be held July 10th through July 12th at Borderline Billiards in Bristol Tenessee. In addition to WPBA regulars like Allison Fisher, Kelly Fisher, Gerda Hofstatter, Karen Corr and Frank’s favorite temporary handler Sarah Rousey, you’ll also see the likes of up and comers like Rachel Eliazar, Briana Miller and most of the team that won the 2009 BCA Team Championships including Gail Glazebrook, Borana Andoni, Emily Duddy and Olga Gashkova.
Same rules as before. You pick who you think will finish in the Top 8. Points are awarded starting at 160 points for first place, 150 for second place all the way down to 10 points for 16th place. The picker with the most points wins. Just like last time, we’ll be giving out gift certificates to the Top 5 pickers:
1st Place: $100 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
2nd Place: $50 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
3rd Place: $25 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
4th Place: $10 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
5th Place: $10 PoolDawg Gift Certificate
Picks have to be in by midnight on 7/9/09. The game is now open, so head over and make your picks. If you played last time, just log in with your existing credentials and pick away.Google+
