dmgwalsh <Q>I hear that you are using a slow nap cloth in your matches. What kind of cloth and how much slower than for example Simonis 860? And Is there a chance that somewhere down the road You might sponsor straight pool championships or matches?
ktrudeau <A>nap cloth is REAL pool cloth..I call it slow..but actually..it is the proper speed for pool...860 is FAST and has made the game easier....right now..the IPT will be 8 ball only

ktrudeau <A>the event sat is sold out...and has been for over a week....over 600 tickets have been sold with over 100 celebtries and sports figures flying in from all over the USA..plus over 50 press people..half of the cast of the Sopranos will be there and a wholelot more...IPT events will never sell tickets at the door....you can't buy tickets to a heavyweight championship fight at the door..or a major concert........the IPT is doing things in a BIG WAY....I plan on making the IPT like the PGA tour.....and most IPT players will be making over 100k per year in prize money,... even the players on the bottom of the list will be earning 30k or more...PLUS bonuses ...appearance fees..sponsrship fees from MAJOR for

Mr_Runout <Q>How and when will the Fab 150 be chosen for the IPT tour?
ktrudeau <A>players must apply....which is free....I already have over 100 players from around the world who have writtenin saying they want to be on the tour....I will accept applications until oct 31 2005...then I will choose the 150 best 8 ball players in my opionion......those are the lucky 150....next year..the bottom 50 money earners lose the tour card and must qualify again...and all others players can go to the qualifying touny and the the top 50 get their 2007 tour card!
............................ Race2-9 left.............
............................ Race2-9 joined.............
Mr_Runout <Q>Doesn't an event like this really need to be "live?" And when will we see live finals?

............................ GeraldG left.............
............................ wahcheck joined.............
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Are there any considerations for schedule conflicts with existing tournaments?
ktrudeau <A>no..they must consider the money here..

Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Will the tournaments be televised on a Pay-per-view basis?
ktrudeau <A>yeees!!
StrokerAce <Q>PPV is fine and all, but wouldn't it be better to try and get the exposure on live broadcast TV and try to gain and audience to sell advertising too? I don't think pool has ever been live on TV, will semi final matches be on live TV?

ktrudeau <A>one big qualifying tourny...like the PGA tour school
............................ fbreen joined.............
............................ airway left.............
StrokerAce <Q>Any plans to film in HD? I think it would be amazing! to see pool in high definition on TV, I would even go for an HDPPV and I would certainly buy it in the new HDDVD format.
ktrudeau <A>maybe
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Do you really think it will take Mike Sigel 2 hours to win two races to 9 against LLJ?
ktrudeau <A>I think the event sat could go 5 hours!!...Lorre jon is a GREAT player...
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>I really like the idea of these players being able to make a decent living. Will the players be 'mic'd
ktrudeau <A>not sure yet..
iusedtoberich <Q>How good of a player are you? Mike said you can beat most of the men. How many racks of 9 ball have you run? What is your high run in straight pool?
ktrudeau <A>want to play for money?.... ;)
............................ Jimmy left.............
rocket_rod <Q>I'm hearing some things from people that say not to get too excited about this until it actually happens. How are you going to separate the people that are on your side and are all for building the game from the "haters"?
ktrudeau <A>there are ALWAYS naysayers about everyting...half teh country hates bush...half think Trump is a loser for filing bankrupcy 7 times....people have bad things to say all the time....I don;t listen and pay no attention..I am too busy having fun building a worldwide business...mu new book is number one on every best seller list....over 4 million copies sold this year...everyone said it would never happen...I love it when pople have to eat ther words..
iusedtoberich <Q>Can you tell us more about the reality show?
ktrudeau <A>not yet!!!!! :)
wahcheck <Q>Mr. Trudeau....I just want to say THANK YOU from a longtime pool fan who has been hoping something like this will elevate pool into a higher plane of popularity and enable more professionals to make a decent living so that pool as a sport can also grow...I sincerely wish you good luck in this venture and maybe pool will finally reach the level that so many pool fans desire.....
ktrudeau <A>thank you sooo much...I am getting flooded with support from ALL OVER the world about this....the idiot negative losers I pay no attention too!! LOL

iusedtoberich <Q>I'm sure you have been reading the threads here and on AZ where people think you will con us. I firmly believe this is legit, but many people dont.

wozniak_thomas <Q>Type here: After fifteen years of lessons pool is in your blood, does Mrs. Trudeau play?
ktrudeau <A>I play ..Mike is my coach
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>I think I've misunderstood something. If you take in over 1000 membership fees ($899 each) and only 150 are chosen, when will the others get to play in your tournaments?
ktrudeau <A>NO.....applying is FREE!!!!!!.....ONLY the 150 will have to pay dues.....and only ONCE...
............................ wahcheck joined.............
rocket_rod <Q>if people send in the membership fee, what sort of contract will they be getting?

JackJustis <Q>I assume you play with a sigel cue?
ktrudeau <A>YES!!
............................ AIRWAY joined.............

iusedtoberich <Q>Will you contiue this tour for as long as you are having fun, even if it never makes a profit?
ktrudeau <A>I am ALREADY making a profit!!!!
iusedtoberich <Q>When players who are not member play in the "open" events and put up their $1000, will that automaticlly make them members, sicne they played so much for that single event?
ktrudeau <A>nope
............................ Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ left.............
............................ Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ joined.............
Race2-9 <Q>So in response to Tom in Cincy, this isn't really an open...it's select group that play?

............................ Deeman joined.............
............................ keith_talent joined.............
............................ terry joined.............
iusedtoberich <Q>Will the competitioin be kept serious? With the reality tv show filming, it could become a "circius act". Will you keep the events professional?
ktrudeau <A>this is a SEROUS match!!!...not a joke...
nhp <Q>How come only about 150 players will be chosen for the tour?
ktrudeau <A>beacuse I am using the PGA tour model..
iusedtoberich <Q>Will most events be held in casinos?
ktrudeau <A>no..the event in dec and jan will be in florida at the convention center
............................ Harold_Acosta joined.............
............................ s_waldon joined.............
Mr_Runout <Q>I wouldn't be too hard on Charlie Williams for scheduling an exhibition match Saturday. Afterall, your event is already sold out and it's not being aired live. Where's the harm?
ktrudeau <A>none at all.....i don;t care what anyone else is doing...I pay no attention..I am doing MY THING....anyone who wants to come on board..fine..if not...fine too......and when they decide they WANT to be on board..i have a good memory!!! :)

............................ christy9 joined.............
iusedtoberich <Q>Who will help you pick the first 150 players? Obvioulsy there are many "hidden" playesr that will want to comde to play becaue the money is so much more than they can make hustliing. Many of these players play "lights out". How would you allow these playres to play unless you personally know thme?
ktrudeau <A>they will have to show there stuff.....it will a hard choice..but they get there shot in the opens...
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>The web site mentions a 'round robin' format. Are your tournaments going to take over a week to complete?
ktrudeau <A>yes..all tournys will take around 6 days
............................ Enter_Name_here joined.............
iusedtoberich <Q>Why is the first invitiationl even only 43 people?
ktrudeau <A>I liked the number!
............................ ras314 left.............
............................ bob joined.............
Brian_in_VA <Q>I've been saying for years that it would take someone with some serious money to put something like this together. You've finally done that and I heartily commend you. What is your motivation for doing it? Profit, love of the game, ego? What's driving you?
ktrudeau <A>I love tolive life and have fun.....I think this tour will help sell more of my books and promote naturalcures.com..it alrady is......and i love a challenge..also...this is EASY TO MAKE MONEY....noone has taken advatage of the HUGE pool market WORLDWIDE
............................ christy9 left.............
............................ Jimmy joined.............
............................ bob left.............
............................ bob joined.............
iusedtoberich <Q>Could you elaborate more on how you are "already making money" as you stated above.
ktrudeau <A>NO...lol....that is what i am good at...I have Willaim Morris agency in Bevery Hills on my Team..the pst head of Fox Sports i on board....Major players and friends with huge money....we know how to make money..that is what we do....and we are doing it here..and haveing FUN...more importanly though..is th PLAYRES are going to be making HUGE MOENY
............................ Curt joined.............
............................ Johnny_V left.............
iusedtoberich <Q>How will the players that cash be payed? Will they be payed the day of the tournament?
ktrudeau <A>all players get paid AT THE TOURNY!!!!!...this sat I am paying IN CASH!!!
............................ paulmg57 left.............
............................ paulmg57 joined.............
nhp <Q>So far everyone I have talked to is extremely excited about this and from what I hear alot of 'retired' players are coming out of retirement for this. Do you think players like Mike Sigel and Jim Rempe will dominate these younger world champions?
ktrudeau <A>I think in the beginning yes......but as these young guys pracice with the nap cloth and 8 ball...then the level of play will rise...just like when Tiget joined the thour...all the players got batter
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>43 players would equal 42 matches... making a great 'leader board' format. I like the idea of being able to tell who is in the lead at any time during the tournament. Did you come up with this idea? if so, I like it.
ktrudeau <A>my idea!..thanks
s_waldon <Q>Kevin - personal thoughts of whether LJJ or Sigel will win? 99% of the pool world thinks Sigel will blow her out of the water. If you had your money on someone, who'd it be?
ktrudeau <A>mike..but HE has ALL the pressure.....so anything can happen
Mr_Runout <Q>I read where your invitational event will feature all of the capable Hall of Famers, and they're all guaranteed good money. If that is, indeed, the case ... that alone should get you on every pool-lover's Christmas card list!
ktrudeau <A>that is true......
Jimmy <Q>Not to stir something up, but do you have any thoughts on the letter from the WPA today asking players to wait before committing to your tour?
ktrudeau <A>I pay no attention.....
s_waldon <Q>As well: Is it true Allison Fisher turned down the opportunity to do the exhibition with Sigel? If so, why?
ktrudeau <A>she would only play on 860...breaking from the side rail....alternate breaks....and jumpcue..and SHORT races to 5...
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Why 8 Ball? why not 14.1 or One Pocket?
ktrudeau <A>It is the game that 90% of players in the world play..it is the game THEY want to see on TV
............................ highrun55 joined.............
............................ Johnny_V joined.............
AIRWAY <Q>mike sigel mentioned an upcoming book a couple months ago in his BD column. Can you tell us more about this ?
ktrudeau <A>he has a book coming out...and DVDs..my publishing company is publishing them..you will see them everywhere like you see my book.."natural cures they don;t want you to know about"
Barbara <Q>You mentioned modeling your tour around the PGA format. What else will you incorporate from that model?
ktrudeau <A>the players making HUGE money!!!! THAT is the goal!!..and poolon TV EVERY WEEK!!!!!
............................ Johnny_V left.............
............................ dmgwalsh left.............
iusedtoberich <Q>When will the website be complete. I am really looking forward to when all the informatihon will be posted on it.
ktrudeau <A>never...but each week more and more stuff will be added.....go there and get on our mailing list...you can also ask questions there and I will respond and post anwers as well
admin We now have enough questions for Kevin to answer tonight. Thank you for your questions.
s_waldon <Q>OK Kevin, gossip for a moment: Do you think Allison is too chicken to play with slow cloth, brekaing from the box, and long races?
ktrudeau <A>hmmmmmmmmmmmmm........no coment! LOL
StrokerAce <Q>When the tour grows, will there be a cut you have to make like in golf? So not every pro will qualify to play in a certain tournament.
ktrudeau <A>good chance
iusedtoberich <Q>Will you do anyting on teh exibition match to make it easy for everyone to see, i.e. big screens, etc.?
ktrudeau <A>YES!!!!!!!......you should see this set...it is UNREAL>>>this is like poolhas never seen..it cost over 1 million to make it!!!
............................ KENTUCKY_9_BALL joined.............
Curt <Q>Kevin, May I first thank you for your effort to make this tour happen, For the players as well as for us, the fans. In thinking this through how long do you anticipate the ink to be red and how long will you continue to invest if it the ink doesn't turn black? Best of luck to you!
ktrudeau <A>well...thanks...I am already maknig money...but no matter....this is throw away money...and I love having fun..I am buying this 40 million yacht...I am spending that moeny to have FUN on the yacht...I am spending money on this tour for FUN....but I know I will make money anyway and already am..but it doesn;t matter...thats the point
rocket_rod <Q>personally, I was thinking of retiring from pool in a year or two myself. But since you decided to do this, and get us top players a chance to make some real money, I plan on sticking around. By the way. I'm the player that Charlie Williams is challenging on Saturday in Florida.
ktrudeau <A>HEY!!...GREAT!!!..do well......I want pool to do well....I think the UPA is great..it is a 9 ball tour....I have an 8 ball tour...totally able to work together..I want EVERYtour and league to do well.
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Is there any chance you'd consider sponsoring a 'billiards education foundation' similar to the BCA. Except yours would be much better.
ktrudeau <A>I dont want to compete with the BCA...or any esting group in pool..I want to help EVERYOE do better
............................ nhp left.............
............................ s_waldon left.............
StrokerAce <Q>Mike said the tour will stop in Atlantic City, any date set yet for that stop?
ktrudeau <A>no date s yet...we have nailed only the event in dec and jan...working on the rest on 2006 and 2007 now..keep checking my website for the scedule and get on the mailing list..I would love to have one in AC
BooBoo <Q>Is there a list of places where qualifiers will be held?
ktrudeau <A>not yet....
............................ Jimmy left.............
StrokerAce <Q>Is there a date or Network set for the Sigel/Jones Match?
ktrudeau <A>not yet..but I am going to run ads in USA today and other major sports mags promoting the TV schedule of the match....
............................ rocket_rod left.............
theinel <Q>How long have you known Mike and how did the two of you meet?
ktrudeau <A>15 years..I wanted to play pool better and I always hire the best in the world....so I hired him to be my coach..when I wanted to learn Kung Fu I got a monk flown in from china to live with me and teach me.....
............................ Harold_Acosta left.............
StrokerAce <Q>Is a reality show about pool something Arthur Smith will be producing?
ktrudeau <A>he is on the team doing production and other TV stuff for the tour..that is HUGE....past head of Fox Sports...I always pay huge money and hire the best
............................ lacey6783 joined.............
Mr_Runout <Q>Obviously, 150 is an odd number for a playing field. You must not be using the standard double-elimination flow chart. Will events be single-elimination? And how will the rounds flow?
ktrudeau <A>all round robins..exept the finals...then race to 9 per set..best 2 of 3 sets..
Barbara <Q>Kevin, You said you will run out of money at that rate in 150 year?? I love you, I want to marry you, I want to have YOUR children. Oh whoops, I'm already married. Darn!
ktrudeau <A>LOL
............................ SacTownPlayer joined.............
Johnny_V <Q>Kevin there are many complaints from pros about current tours seeding rules. Will there be seeding for tournament placement or will placement be done in a random fashion in your events?
ktrudeau <A>seeding based on IPT money
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Is there a minimum age limit? I know of some JR players that are under 21 that are very interested.
ktrudeau <A>no age limit....men and woman are allowed
iusedtoberich <Q>Regrding tv matches, you said you would produce them better than anything else thus far, BY FAR. A few suggestions I have would be to "teach" the "bangers" who might watch how to do certain things, such as draw the ball, postion play, safety play, etc. I love in golf how they show how to swing for differnt clubs and shots, etc. And I have never played golf in my life but I like that stuff. Especially neat is when the compare 2 players' strokes, and freeze frame every split second to show the differaneces. This would work great in pool and would be something everyone would enjoy.
ktrudeau <A>I agree...we are on the same page...
............................ Race2-9 left.............
StrokerAce <Q>Any surprises with who signed up for the tour? Any top pro women signed up yet?
ktrudeau <A>no surprises.....EVERYONE wants to playand NOONE wantd to be left out..some of the top pros have called me 10 times..REMINDING me that they want in!!!
............................ Race2-9 joined.............
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Thanks for taking the time before your big event Saturday to be on this chat forum. How many spectators will there be?
ktrudeau <A>over 600

............................ paulmg57 joined.............
iusedtoberich <Q>How many players have payed their fee thus far and joined the tour?
ktrudeau <A>I am NOT acepeting fees or money......players can only APPLY now..which is FREE...only the 150 players that i select to be on the tour will be required to pay there lifetime dues....I don;t want their money..I just need to know they are serious becasue some players who want to join don;t have a prayer against a top player..I need to weed out the losers.....it looks like I could have over 5000 players from aroudn the orld wanting to join...over 1000 have said so already...and only the 150 pay
............................ candyman joined.............
iusedtoberich <Q>When will the rest of the IPT website be updated?
ktrudeau <A>every wewek it will be
iusedtoberich <Q>You talked about the events being broadcast on "major TV networks". Does this mean terrestrial television and not cable tv?
ktrudeau <A>corrct..fox..abc..cbs..nbc..AND cable!!
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Will the payouts be for 50% of the field? or less? or more?
ktrudeau <A>I am working on that now....the exact payout swill be on the webstie on the next few weeks
dmgwalsh <Q>what kind of real pool cloth is it and how much slower do the balls move.
ktrudeau <A>nap...21 oz...it is the speed pool was meant to be played on...860 or any worsted cloth is TOOOOOO fast and makes the game easier

iusedtoberich <Q>Why is there such a lag time between when a player must submit their tour fee of $899 and when they can play in a tournament? Many players might be skeptical and not want to sign up until the first tournament is played and payed out. But by that time, if they sign up, it will be too late for them to participate in any of the early events in 2005.
ktrudeau <A>LOL...good...I hope they are ALL skeptical.then only 50 players will be splitting the money for the first year and make a fortune....!!!!..all the others will be killing themsleves!!
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Are the UPA Pros welcome to join your tournament?
ktrudeau <A>EVERYONE..man or woman..ANY age can APPLY for member ship..applying is FREE.....then I will pick the 150 that will be the lucky players who will go to the paywindow for the first year of the IPT....
Tom_In_Cincy_AKA_SactownTom_ <Q>Are the UPA Pros welcome to join your tournament?
ktrudeau <A>thanks for all your questions! Folks ..this is REAL!!!!!!!...All those who will be at the event sat will see something that poolhas never seen!!!!!......get ready....the game has changed!!!

Our instructors include superstars Nick Varner and Jeanette Lee. Every issue features the pool accessories and equipment you love — pool cues, pool tables, instruction aids and more. Columnists Mike Shamos and R.A. Dyer examine legends like Willie Mosconi and Minnesota Fats, and dig deep into the histories of pool games like 8-ball, 9-ball and straight pool.
