Sports Betting

The World Pool Masters XXVI takes place in Gibraltar this week with an extended 24-strong line-up featuring many of the world’s top players.

All matches in this £100,000 tournament, contested during six sessions over three days at Tercentenary Hall in the Victoria Stadium are best-of-13 up until the semi-finals, which are best-of-15. The final is decided over 17 frames with all matches adhering to the winner-breaks format. Players have just 30 seconds to take their shot before a foul is called.

The World Pool Masters was first staged in 1993 and has been won by nearly all of the great names of the sport, including Earl ‘The Pearl’ Strickland. Germany’s Ralf Souquet won it six times and two-times winners include Souquet’s compatriot Thomas Engert, American Shane van Boening and the Netherlands’ Niels Feijen, the defending champion.
