VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Q-Masters has been a Hampton Roads mainstay since 1971. The late Barry Behrman opened the billiards club, and founded the U.S. Open 9-ball Championship. "It's the hotbed of east coast pool," says Virginia Beach Billiards club president James Baker.
"It's probably one of the best places in the city that you could come to and no one knows about," says longtime Q-masters member Woody Woodhouse.
Going into it's 41st year in Hampton Roads, the U.S. Open 9-ball Championship brings 160 of the worlds best sharpshooters to Hampton Roads. Over $200,000 in prize money to the winner of the tournament. "I think they're doing a first-class job in honoring Barry's legacy," Woodhouse said.
