Details from the highly anticipated Corner Bank 10 Ball series have recently been announced. A few weeks back owners Jim Wych and John White caused a stir announcing a five event $225,000 added 10 Ball pro circuit with a grande final. There will be $25,000 added to each event and $100,000 added to the Grand Final, instantly making this one of the most coveted pro tours to play on in North America and perhaps the World.

 In order to qualify for the final one needs to play in 3 out of 5 of the preliminaries. The entry fee for the 5 prelims will be $250 each and the final entry will be $500, all entry fee prices and payouts are represented in Canadian currency.

Each event will take place at The Corner Bank Sports Bar & Grill, located at 925 Warden Avenue, Toronto, Canada. This establishment has not even celebrated its second anniversary and has already established itself as one of the elite establishments in the country.

Adding to the prestige of this circuit, each event will be carrying Mosconi Cup points for the 2017 teams. This is great news for Mosconi Cup hopefuls, with these prize pools I expect to see most of the top players in the world at these events and it's nice for them to be able to kill two birds with one stone.  Each field is limited to the first 128 players paid, an online payment method will be made available shortly. There is an option for those who want to guarantee their spot now for the first event. You can mail your entry directly to the address below;
