"There were a lot of heartbreaks last year as well as glorious triumphs in the qualifying stage 1 at Star Billiards Center. One young teenage player missed the winning 10-Ball to qualify, as well as top tier champions such as Akimi Kajitani of Japan getting through and making it all the way to the top 16. Everyone plays so hard and you wish everyone could qualify. But there will definitely be some heartbreaks again. It's just a part of the game", said Charlie Williams, Dragon Promotions promoter and world renown player and coach.
