Mark,
Thanks for the info! My biggest regret about not getting out to Vegas this year was
that I would miss the tournament. 3C is actually my favorite game out of all the
cue sports, even though I can't play it worth a damn. I have had the privilege of
seeing most of the current top players in action at various events in the US in
recent years & am always totally amazed by how beautiful the game looks when they
play.
I admit that I was surprised that despite the event's proximity to the trade show,
with all of it's attendant coverage, that neither of the major magazines even
mentioned it. I hope that the location & time at least boosted spectator
attendance.
Cogradulations to Sang Lee on his first place finish!!
Marvel

I don't have the averages yet, but here is some more info.  There were
119 players entered in the qualification rounds, and 20 players seeded
into the finals, so the total field was 139.  This is believed to be
the largest 3-cushion tournament ever held in the US.

----------------

Below are the final standings of the Conlon Memorial Worldcup 3-Cushion
Tournament that was held at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas July 13-18,
1999.  Play in the finals was best of five sets to 15 points.

Some notable matches:

    Daniel Sanchez from Spain got 45 points in 12 innings to average
    3.75 in his first-round match against Tahir Alp (Turkey).

    Peter Ceulemans (grandson of Raymond) qualified for the final 32,
    but drew Eddy Leppens for his first match in the main tournament.
    Leppens averaged 1.964 against 1.037 for Ceulemans and won 3-1 in
    sets.

    In the round of 16, Blomdahl averaged 2.045 against Raymond
    Ceulemans' 1.619 to take the match 3-0.  Sanchez averaged only
    2.250 in his second match. Marco Zanetti averaged 2.937 against
    1.866 for*** Jaspers in a 3-1 win.

    In one semi-final match, Blomdahl averaged 2.031 against Sayginer's
    1.906, but the Turk won 3-2 in sets.  In the other semifinal match
    Sang Lee had a 3-1 win over Riamond Burgman of The Netherlands.
    The set that Burgman won was by a 15-point runout from the break.
    This feat netted Burgman 5000DM (about $2650) from Minkels Products
    as a special bonus.

    Lee fell behind Sayginer in the finals 0-2 in sets, but managed a
    thrilling come-from-behind victory.  The set scores were:

      6-15 4-15 15-7 15-3 15-10

Is the rise due to improved players or improved equipment? Do you know which
rules Hoppe played under in 1950? I know that sometimes they allowed
deliberates, and other times they played optional cueball.
