MANILA, Philippines — Nakahirit ng tiket sa main draw si Jeffrey Ignacio sa prestihiyosong 2017 World Pool 9-Ball Cham­pionship na magsisimula sa Sabado sa Al Arabi Sports Club sa Doha, Qatar.

Nagrehistro si Ignacio ng limang sunod na panalo sa qualifying round kabilang ang 7-2 pananaig kay Hsieh Chia Chen ng Chinese-Taipei sa kanyang final match para makasiguro ng silya sa main draw.

Iginupo rin ng 25-anyos na si Ignacio sina Khaled Sayaf ng Kuwait sa second round (7-1), Lin Sheng Yung ng Chinese-Taipei sa third round (7-4) at Taher Hussain ng Qatar sa fourth round (7-1).

Hindi naman pinalad ang isa pang Pinoy na si Adonis Santos na lumasap ng 3-7 kabiguan kay Yang Shing Shun ng Chinese-Taipei sa third round.

Dalawa pang qualifying events ang idaraos upang mabigyan ng tsansa ang iba pang manlalaro na makapasok sa main draw ng torneong may nakalaang $200,000 kabuuang  premyo.

 Sa main draw, hahatiin ang 128 manlalaro sa 16 grupo na binubuo ng walong manlalaro kung saan ipatutupad ang double elimination format.
