This year’s line up also highlights five of the world’s most exciting young players, namely:
Mohamed Abouelghar (EGY) world Ranked # 9
Cesar Salazar (MEX) World Ranked # 21
Miguel Rodriguez (COL) World Ranked # 23 [former world #4]
Artuor Salazar (MEX) World Ranked # 44

This will be a Super Series final style event with 2 pools of 4 and a final on the Saturday afternoon to decide final positions, except all matches will be best of 5 (and there’s set to be a couple of barn-burners off the back of the recent Motor City Open where some of the guys just played each other in a cross over round robin that encourages a high level of competition in every match.
