We’ve got the latest on the 2014 Chinese 8-Ball Masters, happening in Qinhuangdao, China…where some of the best names in pool in the U.K. and U.S. have made the trek to take on the top Chinese players.

Scottish snooker legend Stephen Hendry and three-time English 8-Ball World Champion Gareth Potts are both now representatives for the Joy Chinese Pool Sports Development Company…and as pool’s popularity in China has exploded, Potts and Hendry are respected as superstars in the Chinese sports world, alongside their fellow competitors.

This article gives some great insight into the big developments happening for the sport in China: http://www.china.org.cn/sports/2012-02/10/content_24602122.htm

The format for this event is a unique and exciting one…as matches are not races to a given number of games. Instead, each match is timed for 130 minutes, and the player who is ahead when the time is up is declared the winner. A 45-second shot clock is in place, and each player gets one 30 second extension per rack. If the players are tied, five-point shootout is held to determine the winner.

In round two of the one-loss bracket, USA’s star player Shane Van Boening was eliminated by his Mosconi Cup opponent Karl Boyes…while Li Hewen knocked out one of the two females, Kelly Fisher. Complete results from this round are below, along with results from day one.
