The Maiden edition of “Highest Potter” which will be a non-ranked Open tournament will hold on the 27th March 2021 at Dreamworld Snooker and Pool Bar, Lekki.
“Highest Potter” Pool is popular amongst players that frequent the bars. The number of successful pot achieved by each player is counted and cumulated at the end of each rack to determine the winner as the person who potted the highest number of balls. 5 players will play on each table per game which may consist of multiple rounds offering between 1 and 5 points.
