Watch US Open 9 Ball Pool Championship 2021 Live Stream online free on any device: smart phone, iPhone, tablet, iPad, PC/Mac. Former snooker world champion Judd Trump will open his US Open Pool Championship 2021 live campaign against American Joe Magee in Atlantic City from September 13 – live on Sky Sports.
Judd Trump will be a welcome guest in the gambling mecca of Atlantic City this week. And that alone puts him in a different category to his better-known namesake – the embattled former president of the USA – should he ever show his face again on this stretch of the eastern seaboard.
The Juddernaut is in town having switched codes from snooker – a sport he has unquestionably mastered – to nine-ball pool as he takes advantage of an invite and a timely gap in the calendar to compete in the US Open.
The 32-year-old, a world champion in 2019, looks certain to reclaim his snooker world No1 spot next month having won 11 major titles in the last two years – but in New Jersey as he takes his place in a field of 256 players, Trump is in uncharted territory.
And with local wags asking him if he is ready to ‘Make Pool Great Again’, that surname is not the most venerated in the city with Donald Trump having seen three casinos fail, leaving the scene owing a fortune with thousands of jobs gone and contractors left unpaid.
Pool is run like most sporting businesses these days, but there is still a hangover romantic image associated with the game of long Route 66-style road trips, hustling strangers for wads of dollars and escapes from toilet windows to the getaway car with some fleeced heavies in hot pursuit.
Other snooker players have chanced their arm at pool with varying degrees of success, including Steve Davis, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Jimmy White and the late Alex Higgins. And reigning and four-time snooker world champion Mark Selby emerged from the UK eight-ball pool scene in Leicester.
The draw for the 2021 US Open Pool Championship has been made with 2019 champion Joshua Filler starting his defense against America’s Joseph Byler in the opening match of the tournament at Harrah’s Resort, Atlantic City on Monday, September 13.
