American 14.1 Straight Pool Championship

The American 14.1 Straight Pool Championship (formerly the Maryland 14.1 Straight Pool Championship) is a professional straight pool (also known as continuous 14.1) tournament held in the United States since 2005. It is organized by promoter Peter Burrows.[1][2]

FormatEdit

In recent years, the tournament has been held in the fall over a 4 or 5 days period.

42 or 48 players are subjectively ranked by skill level and evenly distributed into groups of 6 or 7 players for the initial round-robin phase. After, the players with the best records from each group move on to a 24 players single-elimination tournament. The 8 players with the best records get a bye. Matches are races to 125 during the round-robin phase and to 150 during the single-elimination tournament except for the final which is a race to 175 or 200.[1]
