The Women’s Showdown will begin with a round-robin group stage. Each group will include two seeded players from the WPA top eight and two invited players. The best two players from each group qualify for single elimination.
Vincent Rochefort, Event Manager for the Predator Pro Billiard Series, said: “We are very excited to announce a brand new woman’s event. The PBS Women’s Showdown is part of Predator and the Pro Billiard Series’ commitment to women’s pool and we are excited to showcase the best of the best players.
“The PBS Women’s Showdown will show the world how strong women’s pool is. It will be a fun event with the best players from around the world. We will only have two tables, every match will be streamed live, so there will be a lot of great matches to watch.
“The Women’s game is part of the vision of the Pro Billiard Series and we are glad to promote the men’s and women’s games equally. We are excited to launch the first Showcase tournament. This will not be a one-off but will instead be the beginning of the PBS Showdown, which we are confident will be a new event that is loved by the players and the fans.
“There will be no entry fee for the players and everyone will be paid. Having a $100,000 prize fund is our reward to the players for their hard work, achievements and commitment to the sport. We hope the event will motivate players even more throughout each season as they try to qualify for the next Showdown.”
