Gift of PBA
The ultimate gift of PBA Tour seems to be the positive difference from UMB events.

PBA itself is a gift and it offers players the privilege, opportunity and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.

I do not understand what is the point in this news.
If there is income, there is tax in every country.
Any UMB players are supposed to pay the tax to their national tax office according to own tax laws.

In most countries, UMB prize money could be under minimum wage level and tax exempted.
But I wish to see many carom players will earn bigger prize money (locally and internationally) and pay higher tax to their home country.

Average of PBA
PBA has its own match and scoring system.

As PBA Tour has nothing to do with UMB, it is ridiculous to waste time for computing totally unnecessary
When the word 'corrected' is used, it means PBA stats are wrong.

This article makes me curious if all BWA records (based on set system)were also compared during those years with UMB records.
As there are many BWA players in UMB organization now, you may be able to track them if it could be any interest for any carom fan(s).

Anyway, carom fans worldwide have fully enjoyed the matches and the success of young guns.

This is false facts
As a 3 cushion fans, I would like to ask you to correct this news because it is not "correct"

Firstly, if you claim this article is fact, I can say that it is a false fact.
Prize money information is already opened for public at the PBA tour hompage.
They said that the prize money will be given after deducting 5% of PBA Development Fund and Tax
(Koreans: 3.3%/Foreigners: 22%). I understand most of professional sports such as NFL, ATP and Golf PGA deduct its kind of fund portion from total prize money and 5% is quite common rate.

So, I suggest you should check the "true fact" first and correct your article.

Secondly, You used the word, "corrected"
I agree to the mention by <Inception>. PBA has its own rule and UMB or other groups could have also its own rule. If you wanted to compare the players' average on the same condition, you should have written like this;
"The average, 1,479 may be said to 1.312 in 1 point system (or UMB system)"
What you chose "corrected" means that it undermines the honor of the players. The player just played on the different system, not wrong system.

To Kozoom,
I think that this is not critique, but news needed facts. If so, your journalist should check the facts first through research or even direct interview.

BTW, 1.312, corrected on this news was wrong. I calulated it again and found out it was 1.3125. So, it should be written as 1.313

About the Ladies tournament let's not overlook the fact that the particular cloth of the games is difficult even for men in the early days. The tables the first few days with Takini cloth is reminiscent of ice skating...

Players returned home empty-handed
I can not help laughing to read ' These 8 players returned Europe empty-handed'.

Over last several decades, most of the players in UMB events went home empty-handed.
Even the players on the podium went home barely covering the travel expenses.
These have been always complained by players but never reported on UMB networks.

Of course, the lately increased prize money level of UMB events has become more attractive.
I guess that is why some veteran players who left UMB Worldcups started to show up recently.
But, in my opinion, not enough to attract young players to continue carom players' career.

The 3CC Masters offer good money but the chances are given to almost same 2 dozen players.
No way for young or new players to be motivated to try carom billiard player career (profession).

Something should be done before we lose next generation to other sports or entertainments.
We have already lost most of them and time is running out (or has run out already, I hope NOT!).

such a shame
I am very disappointed at how they write in a way that they just want to see.

I understand how there are conflicts between the UMB and the PBA, but that does not mean you can just pick on the players and their "objective" match results.

In addition, the use of the word "corrected" seems quite "authoritative." Will you "correct" the earlier records of other players, such as Ceulemans may I say??

3.3%+5%=8.3%. Not HALF !
CORRECTION for intentional misleading and for some math education.
I have checked the facts and numbers here and there, and here are my findings.

Shin was paid net 91.7% of total approx 75,000 Euros winner prize money.
As Korean, according to withholding tax law in Korea (as posted by Pink tulip above), 3.3% tax was imposed and 5% donation to PBA Fund was deducted. Total 8.3% less from total amount.

For foreigners, 22% tax withheld according to the International Tax Treatment, simply speaking.

8.3% is never called near HALF in any civilized countries. Even 27% (22%+5%) is near half of mathematical half.
But, nice try to make PBA prize money look smaller than announced.

At the same time, same withholding is applied to Kozoom 3C Masters.
Same on LGU+ Masters prize money.

For UMB Worldcups and World Championships, I heard no withheld tax. Hard to understand for me.
Can someone in UMB explain this?
As long as players are paying due tax to their home countries according to governing tax law, OK.

You heard a lot and you write a lot, but you know nothing! You call yourself as a Name of a movie. This is very believable!
