Traditionally Kirov department of Russian section of IPA holds a billiard tournament on the eve of the Day of militia.

The present competitions were distinguished by a record number of players - 64. Moreover this year colleagues from other regions kept company with Kirovites for the first time. This was the reason why judges changed the rules.

Taking into consideration the increased level of professionalism of the participants, we decided to improve the rules, making them maximally similar to real ones. Now a participant is fines for a wrong strike.»
