It's an eight-foot table, similar in size to the many homeroom pool tables, but slightly smaller than the one you see in competition pool.

Quoting Jay Kidd from the azbilliards.com forum regarding the 2013 tournament

"the table size is 9x4.5 to be exact, but the pockets and rails are constructed as a snooker table. The rules they play is very similar to BCA/WPA 8 ball, the most noticable exception might be that you have to explicitly call the pocket on 8 ball. Souquet and Appleton both lost one rack due to this rule."
