The 8 Ball Pool Forum Cup is a pair of 32-person knock-out tournaments, with one for the PC version and one for the mobile version; each cup is in a single-player elimination format.[1][2] The cup is aimed at players with great skill and good knowledge of the game itself, and there is plans for the tournament to be hosted a number of times a year, according to the creator of the tournament. The creator has also stated that he may consider doubling the size of the tournament, upping it to 64 entrants, which he would later go on to do in a next blog post.[2][3] The original post about the cup was on August 10, 2015, and the post on Miniclip's official blog was posted four days later. Despite the tournament places being taken, Ben M of Miniclip has stated that they will "have a waiting list in case anyone can’t compete."[1] The first tournament started on August 17th, 2015.[2] The tournament is hosted by CrunchKing, a Staff Member of Miniclip and Moderator on the 8 Ball Pool Forum.
