My Comments

The ‘PBA (World) CHAMPIONSHIP’ has won reputation and high praise from all over the World
Welcome to the Show: following the PROFESSIONAL TEAM LEAGUE, Round 5, we will have the PROFESSIONAL (World) TOUR, 4th Round (PBA, Men and Ladies) tomorrow or the day after tomorrow (PS: PBA 4th Round “CrownHaitai PBA-LPBA Championship 2021 will be held on 19-23 January", as per PBA note)

“Even in the dark days we live in, with restraints all over the world walk”, as I said before, PBA was able to go forward and, as the Honorable Young-Soo KIM, PBA President, has emphasized (New Year’s Message),

“(…) in such difficult times, PBA has made a great achievement that surprised everyone: the launching of PBA Team League proved that billiards can also be played as a Team Sport and fixed the stereotype that billiards can only be played in a quite circumstance. (…) Also, the start of the Division 3 TOUR has been highly praised by many sport experts that PBA has implemented a perfect promotion and relegation system (and) last year, PBA signed an agreement, for mutual development, with worldly famous Professional Snooker Association, WPBSA (and) although COVID-19 made it difficult for us to start our business, the fact that WPBSA recognizes PBA, as its partner, proves that PBA has strengthened its stature.”

Indeed a remarkable achievement, Honorable Young-Soo KIM: PBA not only "has strengthened its stature”, PBA has won reputation and high praise from all over the World and I'm sure that PBA, like the Snooker Association, will have the World Championship to close the Events Cycle, “The Finale”, with a last stage to the best of 15, 17 or 19 sets of 15.

Congratulations and Happy New Year.

For a global "3band" billiards

Priorities for growth and development.

"9ball" pool, "10ball" pool and snooker never stop growing and expanding in the world while 98% of the people behind "3band" billiards are incapable.
For the time being and until further future here are my regulations to really develop "3band":
1. Only very good players capable of high scoring are allowed to participate in competitions.
2. Individual matches.
3. Double elimination playing system.
4. Shot time: 25 or 30 seconds
5. Matches to 40, 45 or 50 points.
For the moment no place for the useless and crippling format and accessories: team league, survival tournament with 4 players on one table, continental cup with 16 players on one table, 2 points for a successful rail first shot, trick shots show, pom-pom girls and others.
The magical mixture of skill, lack of control, and good or bad luck makes our game an unparalleled sport of excitement, thrill, drama and surprises. Its main characteristic is the score evolution and variations in every match between two good players capable to score points.
You can read my complete concepts through eleven short descriptions titled: pool, snooker and "3band" billiards. Conclusion. on my YouTube channel: Jean Jarjoura and on my Facebook page: Jean Jarjoura- 3band
