2022 World Pool Masters field locked in

PhilBoxing.com




The field for the 2022 World Pool Masters is set shaped by the 2022 Nineball World Rankings as 24 players, take aim for one of pool's most prestigious prizes in some of the toughest conditions against the top contenders.

Pool's most famous invitational tournament gets underway from May 5-8 at the Europa Point Sports Complex, Gibraltar with tickets from £7 per session.

Defending champion Alexander Kazakis will lead the field as No.1 seed closely followed by newly crowned World Champion Shane Van Boening who will be seeded as the No.2 seed. The top 20 players on the Nineball World Rankings were given automatic wildcards with the top eight seeds avoiding the preliminary stage of the tournament.

Four wild cards join the 20 off the rankings with two-time champion Niels Feijen returning to the Rock off the back of claiming the European Championship 9-ball title earlier this year. Dimitri Jungo of Switzerland will make his World Pool Masters debut on the back of a stellar run at the World Pool Championship for the Swiss cueist after reaching the Last 16. The final two wild cards were given to Hong Kong, China's rising star Lo Ho Sum who beat both David Alcaide and Eklent Kaçi at the World Pool Championship and Kuwait's World Pool Championship semi-finalist Abdullah Alyousef who joins compatriot Omar Al-Shaheen in the field of 24.
