A Message From Shannon Daulton
Well after a day of reflection, I just want to express how happy and proud I am of the Dixie Land Classic!!!! This event turned out almost exactly as I had wished. The tournament was designed for the players! The talent that was in Cue Time this week was absolutely unreal!
I would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to my comrades who came to support the event. You guys really put on a terrific show! Also, a BIG THANKS to every player and all of the pool FANS who showed up to support and enjoy the event, I hope each and everyone of you enjoyed the action this week!!! I cannot say enough about Dayne Miller. He was an absolute huge part in all of the success of this event!! He worked endless hours leading up to, and during this event. Thank you for your dedication and hard work! Secondly, none of this wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for Chad Stark, owner of Cue Time. He gave us a blank canvas and said here go to work!!! Thank you for having faith in us & giving us the opportunity to put together a first class event. I hope you enjoyed the show!! Hats off to the staff for taking care of everyone! Thank you for the countless hours of hardwork!
I can't even say what a lifesaver that Steve McDonald was for coming and lending us his expertise & help directing this tournament.
You were invaluable, my friend!!!
Wow, what a show and broadcast that our buddy Ray Hansen with poolactiontv.com
did on getting this event broadcast across the country. It was a great show, my friend!
With a little over $65,000 paid out for everything this week, I am honored to have brought the GSBT into Cue Time and produced such numbers from top to bottom!! Great shooting to the Dixieland 2017 Champion, Roberto Gomez!! You played some incredible pool all the way through this event!!
Also to my buddy, Sky Woodward. I know how bad you wanted this event. You played great the entire tournament also and congratulations on a job well done!
Again, just a Huge Thank You to everyone involved. I know I forgot someone...I apologize in advance.

Congratulations to Dennis Orcollo as he continues his stellar play and snags two out of three titles that being the Ten Ball Ring Game and the 9 ball title
Dennis remained unbeaten in a field of 128 in the Nine ball event and had to be beaten twice by Sky Woodward, Sky fell short losing the first set 9 - 8
Dennis went for an insane $8,000 in the 9 Ball Calcutta but it reaped huge rewards as first place was $30,000 in the first Calcutta and $10,300 in the second Calcutta . First place for the tournament its self was $3,800.00
Collectively the first four picks in 9 Ball went for over $26,000 and the total in Calcutta 1 was just over $86,000
Sky Woodward went for $4800
Ramil Gallego finished 3rd and went for only $1k in the Calcutta
In the One Pocket event Billy Thorpe edged Shane VanBoening and pocketed $10,000 for first and $15,000 was disbursed for first place in the Calcutta
All in all the four Calcuttas blew the doors
off by going well over $160,000
Who says no money in pool lol

Breaking News From Joy ($150K First Place)
I was at the press conference in January in China when Joy announced next years first place would be approximately $150K USD, like many I was a tad skeptical well folks its 100 percent factual, outside of snooker and not since the IPT this amount becomes the largest first place prize currently in any pool event around the world surpassing most by more then $100,000 USD .
Joy earlier this received over 300 Million CNY from major sponsors to invest , promote and give back to the game .
If this doesn't make room owners around the world want to go out and buy a table , host events as well as pool players shifting their sights on this amazing discipline then I don't know what will as the 2018 Joy Masters Champion in January will walk away with an incredible $150,000 USD .
This past January 2017 Gareth Potts
won approx $45,000 USD
Practice up players because ITS ON!
