2014 World Qualifying 3-Move Tournament in Louisville, KY
November 13th thru 16th
The winner of the WQT bid was awarded to Michael Holmes. The winner of the tournament will have the honor of playing the world champion. The event has never been held in the U.S. We're expecting the best players from around the world to play in this tournament. The WCDF 3-Move QT (Open Division) has never played in the USA in the past. In addition to the Louisville, Kentucky bid by Holmes, Gerry Lopez made a Las Vegas bid.
