AEPC Singles Competition

aepc singlesThose competing in the Asia Expat Pool Challenge (AEPC) will already be pretty psyched up to perform over the next two days, however, AEPC’s announcement today that it intends to widen the scope of the Challenge to include an 8-ball Singles Competition cannot fail to add further spice!

The competition will involve top players from each of the 6 teams participating in the 2013 AEPC being held in Jakarta on 13th & 14th September – and will take place in Jakarta in April 2014

All qualifying and participating players will have their economy airfares to, and hotel accommodation in, Jakarta paid for by the event sponsor.

The singles competition is well endowed with prize money as follows:

 Winner – $2,000

Runner Up – $1,000

Third Place – $500.

 There are two ways for a player to get qualified for the Singles Championship.

Pathway One – Automatic Selection

The player from each city with the highest number of winning frames, and having played in all matches, will automatically qualify for the singles championship.

In the event that more than one player is tied on the most winning frames then an elimination match will be played in the players’ own  city to determine the winner.

The losing player(s) will then qualify to participate in Pathway Two as prescribed below.

Pathway Two – City Play Off

A second player will be selected from each city to fill the final six positions for the Singles Championship.

The second player selected to represent each city needs to have won a minimum of six frames and to have played in all 5 matches. The city organizer will determine the minimum entry-level ie 6, 7 or a higher number of frames.

The city organizer shall arrange elimination matches in their respective city to determine a winner.

At the conclusion of the selection process there will be two players representing 6 cities (12 players in total) playing in Jakarta in April 2014.  The qualifying players must be advised to the organizers no later than 31 January 2014.

The detailed playing format will be advised closer to the time of the Singles Championship.

Finally, please note that the schedule for the AEPC has changed a little to provide greater fairness towards all participating teams, as well as helping raise awareness in cities of origin.
