80th World 14.1 Championship: Social Distance Edition
Orlando, Florida- Necessity is the mother of invention. So we have seen the dawn of virtual tournaments. Various stay at home events with people streaming their matches on Facebook. Even reigning World 14.1 Champion Shane Van Boening has gone as far to live-stream his own practice sessions at home.
For 14 years straight we have organized and produced this event , the longest streak of World 14.1s in history. And though we were chalking off 2020 as a no-go, it seems there was a way to perhaps salvage this 80th Annual event by utilizing a bit of ingenuity, lessons from the long ago past, and adaptation/application of modern time's innovations.
This year , we will bring back the Final Four from 2019 (Shane Van Boening, Corey Deuel, Thorsten Hohmann, John Schmidt) and seed them into the bracket. Joining them will be 4 qualifiers. Determining those 4 will be through the following:
Virtual Qualify from November 26 - December 22, 2020.
