ICONIC DUO JOIN THE SUPREME POOL SERIES
Mick Hill and Karl Boyes - two giants of the Cuesports World, have signed up for the inaugural Supreme Pool Series taking place throughout 2018.
The lucrative five-event series, which boasts a whopping £40,000 top prize to the winner of the Grand Finals, was too big a temptation for the English pair, who will return to their small table roots.
Hill is the reigning and four-times WEPF English 8-Ball World Champion and frequently discussed as the greatest player of all time. Recently he has also carved out a career in the Far-East playing in Chinese 8-Ball events. In 2016, still fairly new to the discipline, he reached the final of the World Chinese Pool Championship.
Boyes himself is a former WPA World 8-Ball Champion. He is a four-time Mosconi Cup winner and also claimed the 2014 World Cup of Pool when representing England A. Before his career on the American Pool scene, he was established in the professional English 8-Ball ranks.
These two global additions yet again prove what a big deal this groundbreaking series is. It has brought together some of the best players ever, from both sides of the rules divide, to compete for record breaking riches.
With the newly crowned IPA World Blackball Champion Ben Davies and the current BI World Champion Liam Dunster both already registered, the entry of Hill means that all three reigning World Champions of the sport will play in the same tournament at the Players Pool and Snooker Lounge.
