Sherif & Jeff

In the first ever Collect-the-Clips Challenge

Championship Players coming!

Sherif Abdelwahab & Jeff Soo, two of the world's best players, will each have their own court at the NCC (courts 6 & 7). The two courts will be set-up with the same clip and ball positions. Then the two players will SIMULTANEOUSLY attempt to solve a Collect-the-Clips Puzzle. The Challenge will consist of seven puzzles. The winner will receive $250.


In this game 4 hoops are chosen, and 4 balls are placed, by random draw.

Each draw of the hoop/ball positions creates a new Collect-the-Clips "Puzzle”.

It is Striker’s job to pick a ball (any ball) to be his striker ball and to then run a break (under AC rules) that begins with a lift-to-position. During the break, Striker seeks to collect all 4 clips – in any order he chooses. He does so by making identified hoops, and/or by peeling at identified hoops, subject to the proviso that he can make no more than 2 hoops and therefore must complete at least two peels. 

Collecting the 4 clips earns basic points and the opportunity for bonus points. Failure to collect all of the clips results in a score of zero for the puzzle.

Howard Sosin will be on the Veranda explaining the play. This will be video taped and available on YouTube.

Come watch and have a complimentary Mojito or cocktail of your choice.
