Nine-ball Pool’s show-piece event sees Europe and USA battle it out for the 2018 Mosconi Cup at Alexandra Palace, and you can follow the latest results and fixture lists here.
The prestigious nine-ball event has been an annual fixture since 1994 and features the five-man teams battling it out over four days of singles and doubles competition.
USA dominated the early years of this event, but the tide has now turned in favour of a star-studded European outfit – who have won the last eight stagings of the competition.
Europe are unbeaten since 2010, having retained the title courtesy of an 11-4 victory in Las Vegas 12 months ago and are once again firm favourites under captain Marcus Chamat.
Chamat’s team is comprised of Jayson Shaw, Albin Ouschan, Neils Feijen, Alexander Kazakis and Eklent Kaci, while Mark Wilson’s USA outfit includes Shane van Boening, Skyler Woodward, Billy Thorpe, Tyler Styer, Corey Deuel and Johan Ruijsink.
Under the shot clock rules, each player will have up to 30 seconds to complete each shot. In singles matches, each player is allowed one 30 second extension per rack and this can be called at any time within the initial 30 seconds.
Sessions will be split into teams, doubles and singles contests. There are a maximum of 21 matches to be played over the four days of the competition (race to 11 points) from December 4-7 at London’s Ally Pally.
