„I feel so honored that I have been chosen to play in the Queens Cup and represent Asia. The Queens Cup will test the players skills and stability like never before, while also making the audience feel excited and having fun watching it. I’m happy I’m in. Thank you God“, said Tsai after receiving the invite to represent on Team Asia.
„Making this team is basically saying you’re recognized as the best of the best. You are playing for your entire continent and your country. Penny Tsai has proven time and again the past years she is a real champion, and has a rock solid game. Nobody is liking it when they draw her in a tournament“, said Charlie Williams, creator of the Queens Cup.
Penny Tsai has numerous credentials to her credit including winning the China Open and has many titles in Taiwan, long revered as perhaps the toughest country for women’s pool. Tsai came close to her first World Championship win but felt short in 2011 for the silver to UK’s Kelly Fisher, who is also her good friend. This year at the Queens Cup, friendship will be put aside as Tsai will have a chance for revenge against Captain Kelly and the West.
The Queens Cup will showcase the rivalry between the Asians and their western counterparts in Europe and USA, much similar to the Ryder Cup in golf or Davis Cup in tennis. The absolute best ladies from their respective countries and continents will be selected for the teams. The event will last 3 days in a 10-Ball format that will race to the first team reaching 10 matches for the win. Style of play will include singles, doubles, triples, and 4-on-4. Captains will be put to the test to create the best strategy in partnerships and chemistry of match-ups. If the matches go 9 to 9 hill hill, a final 4-on-4 play will create the dramatic conclusion.
The JBET.com Queens Cup will play all its matches on the feature MIN TV table with Andy Cloth as the surface used for this monumental competition. All clothing for the Queens Cup East & West Teams by Focused Apparel www.focusedapparel.com
