All the important and necessary entry details are contained in the document, but interested participants should feel free to contact the USSA if they have any further questions.
The Championship will be played using an initial Group phase with the qualifying placed players from each Group advancing into the single elimination Knockout phase of the event.
Although Friday, May 24, has been designated a practice day in which also the Players' Meeting and Championship draw will be conducted from 7pm, subject to the number of entries it may also be necessary to start the Groups phase of play after the draw has been conducted, so players are advised to arrive at the venue as early as possible on this date.
As it is the National Snooker Championship, in order to be eligible to compete players must be either a citizen of the United States, or a legal resident of the United States who has not represented any other nation in an International Billiards & Snooker Federation (IBSF) organized snooker event in the past three years.
Entries may only be made on the SnookerUSA.com website at the address found in the Entry Document. The closing date for entries is by the end of Sunday, May 19, 2013.
