The qualifying rounds for this year’s Big Buck World Championships have ended, and the talented 64 players around the country who made it into the top spots are busy checking in. (The last date to do so is Oct. 16.)
The World Championships will be held on Nov. 4 and 5 in Austin, Texas. Organizers advise players who didn’t qualify to check in as an alternate, emphasizing that additional competitors are needed every year.
Qualifying events culled 64 top players from 4,628 competitors worldwide over the past months, but only one person can win and claim the World Champion prize of $20,000. A simultaneously held Ladies’ Tournament has a top prize of $5,000. (Women can compete in both tournaments so one lucky lady could walk away with $25,000!)
