Berlin, Germany – Good news for Europeans! For the first time ever, Germany will host a qualifier for the World Tournament of 14.1 by new Bata Bar & Billiards in Berlin. Now the straight pool lovers in Europe will get their chance to partake in the greatest 14.1 championship ever. And they get to play it on the world’s greatest billiard cloth. Andy Cloth has been chosen as the Official Cloth of the World 14.1 and continues its massive growth internationally. Players from all over can pay a low entry fee and be able to take their chance to win a free spot against the world’s most extraordinary straight pool players! Each qualifier winner will be guaranteed a minimal of 5 round robin matches in the finale main event. The main event will take place once more in New York City. Dragon Promotions and Dr. Michael Fedak are pleased to bring the 74th production of the oldest billiard event in the world on August 4th-9th, 2014.

“Andy Cloth’s reputation and growth is spreading because of our quality and unbeatable prices. This is enabling us to reinvest back into the sport. And what better event to sponsor than the World Tournament, the longest running pool event on Earth. I think Mosconi, Caras, Mizerak and all the legends will be happy knowing the game they love is continuing with the finest players and equipment”, says EJ Glode, President of Andy Cloth USA and promoter of the Wyoming Open.
“We have used Andy Cloth in many of our major events, including the 2011 World Tournament. I vividly remember Thorsten Hohmann running 100+ balls in six consecutive matches, including the finals, when he won. Straight pool players are all about positional play, and we had an usual amount of 14.1 players commenting how much easier it was to control the cueball on the Andy Cloth”, recalls Charlie Williams, Executive Producer of Dragon Promotions. DP will be producing the World Tournament for the ninth year in a row.
“We are very pleased for Bata Bar & Billiards to host the only qualifier in Europe and the first one ever in Germany. The World Tournament is the biggest and most legendary tournament in pool history, and to be associated with it is quite an honor”, said Patrick Baumann, Owner of Bata Bar & Billiards and which will be supplying additional prize money to help with some expenses to the qualifier winner. Bata Bar has also covered their entire poolroom with Andy Cloth, even prior to the idea of hosting the qualifier. More information about Bata at
