Premier League Pool Format
The tournament will feature an exhilarating league format where all 16 players face each other once across the first five days of play. After day five, the League Table eliminates the bottom six, and the remaining ten players compete against each other again on days six and seven before eliminating four more players.
The remaining six players play each other once more on day eight before the top four players contend the playoffs. All group matches race to 5, alternate break, and a win will give a player a point on the league table. If there is a tie between players, the system will determine the table based on Rack Difference, followed by Racks Won, and then Head-to-Head record.
