Fans of five-time US Open 9-Ball Champion, Earl Strickland, are getting more and more opportunities to hear his thoughts on the game and interact with him in their local rooms.
In addition to his massively popular “Earl Strickland Presents” series of videos on the Billiard Network’s YouTube channel, Strickland has also been booking appearances all over the country.
Strickland is recently back from trips to Pennsylvania, Montana, and Idaho where he appeared alongside Josh Brothers, Shane Van Boening, and Oscar Dominguez. These appearances have included challenge and exhibition matches, Q&A sessions, autograph signings, and private lesson opportunities from one of the top players that the game has ever seen.
Strickland already has the following upcoming appearances booked:
March 23rd – Yale Billiards Wallingford, Connecticut
March 26th – Racks Billiards Vernon, Connecticut
August 13th – Keys Pool Hall, Winnemucca, Nevada
Earl is also scheduled to compete in the Diamond Open 10-Ball Pro Players Championship at the Super Billiards Expo, as well as the Earl Strickland Invitational Open in Montego Bay, Jamaica on July 25th – 27th.
Strickland thanked all of the fans that he has met at the events. “I would like to take time to thank everyone involved in my exhibitions recently. It has been a blessing to me, especially after the disappointment of not being able to play for the Mosconi Cup last year.
I also want to thank all the pool fans everywhere. Pockets billiards is a wonderful game and it excludes no one. I still play every day and can’t get enough of it.
It’s great that I have the opportunity to work with these poolrooms because we need to help the pool rooms and pool in general. We all love this game and we have to do everything we can to keep it strong and thriving.
Thanks again to all the pool fans.”
