|December 7, 2006 (London, UK) – Maharajah Club is sponsoring top UK pool player Imran Majid as Europe take on the USA in the 2006 Mosconi Cup in Rotterdam, Holland from December 7th-10th.|
Majid – nicknamed “Maharajah” – is the only UK player to make it on to Team Europe for the world’s most prestigious team pool event and has received the full backing of Maharajah Club for the tournament.
Sachin Pawa, CEO of Maharajah Gaming, said: “We are absolutely delighted to sponsor Imran Majid as he faces the biggest challenge of his career. Majid is the ‘Maharajah’ of pool, so we can think of no more appropriate partnership. We wish him every success at the Mosconi Cup, which is effectively the Ryder Cup of pool. We know he will be an ideal partner for us.”
Maharajah Club is a leading online gaming site and will take bets on the Mosconi Cup via its dedicated sportsbook, www.maharajahsports.com. The sportsbook is offering odds of 1/2 on USA and 6/4 on Europe winning the title.
Majid is the UK’s leading nine-ball professional and has already enjoyed a successful 2006. The 34-year-old West Londoner won the Italian Open and a bronze medal at the European nine-ball Championship. Known for his devastating potting and outstanding safety play, he is ranked third in Europe and will be making his debut appearance at the Mosconi Cup.
Looking forward to the event, Majid said: “I was beside myself when I found out I was in the tournament -- it’s the greatest tournament to play in.”
The Mosconi Cup was founded in 1994 and is now firmly established as the most important team pool competition in the world. A nine-ball event, it comprises singles, doubles, trebles and team matches. A maximum of 24 matches will be played to decide the winner and no player may take longer than 30 seconds playing a shot.
USA holds the upper hand – they have won the trophy 12 times, with Europe triumphing just twice.
