The “World Championship of Online Pool” is being powered by Game Trust, the leading provider of infrastructure for online tournaments. Game Trust has spent two years developing the most realistic online pool engine available. The simulation pool game allows players to control stick angle, ball spin and velocity with simple strokes of the keyboard’s arrow keys.
With more than 16 million online pool players, the tournament is expected to draw a huge worldwide playing audience. It also represents the first attempt to provide an organized environment where players can chat, play, interact and have fun, all while competing for cash, prizes, and fame.
According to Adeo Ressi, Game Trust CEO, “In the physical world, people get involved in competitive games to make new friends, connect with old ones, improve upon skills and of course, there’s the possibility of winning fame, fortune and a bundle of cash. These are the exact same reasons that motivate people to play online -- and they’re finding the experience just as rewarding, and for many, even more so,” explains Ressi.
