The annual American CueSports Alliance Iowa State Championships brought hundreds of pool players to Davenport this weekend.  
It’s the second year the event has taken place in the RiverCenter in Davenport. 
Officials say the players like the Quad Cities community, and they’ve seen their numbers grow in the last two years. 
The event started Thursday and ended Sunday. 
More than 500 players participated, including many from Illinois, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. 
Officials say more than $25,000 were given in prize money. 
There were a few additions this year including new tournaments and a junior division. 
Officials say their goal is to get the next generation involved in the sport. 
“We’re hoping that the juniors show up. They don’t have to be part of the ACS, they just come play, anybody who really loves to play pool and wants to get into it. It’s open to the public, all you have to do is pay your $35, and we set up a tournament bracket for you and you play,” says Iowa ACS President Tim Bringman. 
Officials say the tournament is a boost for the local economy, generating more than $400,000. 
More than 900 players are expected to participate in the ACS Midwest Championship this January.
