CALLING ALL POOL FANS

Dennis Orcollo needs your help! As you already know, he has been flying back and forth from the Philippines to the USA for many years to compete in pool tournaments on our soil. His success has been a source of inspiration to aspiring pool players both here and abroad, and equally exciting for all of us who have witnessed his exploits on the pool table. 

Somehow it has transpired that his frequent trips here created the impression that he was violating U.S. visa rules. Because of this, on his last trip here earlier this month he was denied entry into the country and sent back home. His visa was not only canceled, but he also received a five-year ban on re-entry to the United States. 

With the help of some of his friends, we are working with Dennis to straighten out this situation and allow him to continue his career as a professional pool player. We will soon be making application for him to get a new visa and have his ban removed. Please show your support for Dennis by letting us know how much the sport of pool and its fans benefit by having Dennis able to compete here in the USA. 

You pool fans and billiard enthusiasts are the backbone of our sport! You are the ones who attend the tournaments, buy billiard equipment and merchandise and watch the matches both via streaming and on television. I think we can agree that having the very talented Dennis Orcollo as a competitor in our major competitions is a good thing. 

Let the world know how much you want to see him back on the felt where he belongs by signing this petition and sharing your own thoughts about him.
