Who do you think will capture the 404 finals?

I think John Morra will take both in Shooters and Bigwigs.:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

nah ive told him his coach is going to take the finals down, with only 3 weeks 9 ball practice in his life by the finals he will be tuned up by then, john is running scared lol....

Saying Johnny will win both 404 finals is very bold. This is a handicap tournament and there are a lot of other players that have just as good of a chance as him.

The 11 handicap players have to play nearly flawless in most cases giving up so much weight. If they catch a 5-6-7-8 on there game that day there in a lot of trouble.

The 404 favours lower handicaps more than the higher handicap players. If any of the 11's win they certainly deserve it.

I think I may come out for both finals to give it a go, may the best (or best handicapped) man (woman) win!

you are a 4?how you guys get those handicap?ok you can have nito on the calcutta but im buying another guy whose also a 5 and i think he has chances of winning too.

btw if i were you,with the 4 handicap and paying only $25 entry,i would play.i pay $45 plus calcutta and i know my chances is very low but i still play.

hc's are always a sensitive topic. Up to the tour director to ultimately determine these hc's, not the player.

He's not a 4 handicap,but always good to stir the pot!And as far as calcuttas I heard certain people will not be aloud to buy anybody because of the dislike people have for him,maybe not even aloud in shooters.As far as bigwigs I don't know.

Like i have said before if people running events and are in the commitee of handicapping players should not be aloud to bet in the calcutta,its a big conflict of interest.But there's no stopping it because they just get somebody else to buy the players for them,thats why the handicap system sucks because there's always a glich.If there was no calcutta the money would be less but I think the handicapping would be more fair because there would one less outlet for the greedy to capitalize.

Taxi-Man:I guess I'll have to show up and pay my entry fee and see what happens. I can assure you I dont know anyone who runs any of the tournaments. 100% outsider. I will be playing this weekend as a 3.

JP, should you not be the handicap you are? Do you not play as a 6? (Unless I am assuming you are someone else then who I am thinking)


Lee Brett, you're a top english snooker coach, you're lucky to be a 7 and thats it. You could be a 20! I dont see people running up to buy me in the calcutta so maybe Im STILL over-handicapped?

XXXbilliards, how much money is still left over from the 30K tour? Just curious.

i overheard from shooters that the actual plan was to have 5 as the lowest handicap.but there still some 4 handicaps and i don't think anyone can get any lower than that.

JP is a good 6 for sure, VERY solid.

4 is the lowest, 11 is the highest. I should be about a minus 17, if I can stand there and rack the balls atleast once, I should win by default. Thats how bad I am! ;)

I'm with you in this one, I find the people that brag the must sometimes are also the that complain the must.......go get your mothers milk or suck something else..........but stop crying once and for all!!!!!
Sandbaggers anonymous should be a club for them.
When I developed the HC system in effect in most places it was done with years of patience and watching the participants actually play, not just hear say but real!!

Just my one cent worth, I got to keep the money for the ones that would bet and fall prey of their greed!!:grin-square::thumbup::grin-square::thumbup::D:wink::wink::wink:

Can anyone confirm kindly to Mr Hermoza that I dont have a wife, thanks! I will have one in September though, thank you in advance for your congratulations.

You OBVIOUSLY are thinking of the wrong guy, good job! There are many of us that are strong supporters of never seeing your tour again, try to get it straight when you talk about one of them.

My name is Dan Lewis, I play as a 4-5 depending on where I go (silvertip VS 404), no wife, had enough weeks to play in your finals, actually called you and you said I would still have to play as a 9+ and pay a $550 penalty even though you have (quite obvious) no idea who I am and I had sufficiant weeks to be eligible. I didnt even come to the finals so I hope someone elses wife tried to sign me in (not being there and all) Good job on taking years to make a handicap system by watching players and yet you wouldnt know one if he/she was standing in front of you. Do us all a favour and take a nice long walk down the highway, into oncoming traffic, with a blindfold on.

I will be at the finals at Shooters next weekend, I also am going to do my best to get out and practice and not play like a donkey. Seems no matter what I dont play well at the 404. Should be a good sized field, wonder who will already be gone to Vegas for BCA/Predator 10 ball though.....

I know Jason said he was going to play BCA and Erik and Johnny are going to the 10 ball.

Like I said, sorry - it was just a rant, I know sometimes joking about HC's are in fun and amongst regulars. I used to be a regular tournament player, mostly at shooters and Silver Tip. Not anymore though, never complained to anyone about my HC, but have seen many players who are noticeably better than myself become a lower HC just by whining to the tourney director. Maybe I just feel a little unfair hearing these complaints actually go through because the director is too soft. I'm not in any way trying to put down a legitimate HC, but when you hear constant complaints about HC's, I would just suggest that you practice more and prove that you can improve your HC instead of laughing at how low your HC is. In the end of a tournament, it is always the one who played a better "game", not the one with the best HC.

Peace ;)

I understand 100%. We arent all close friends but we know each other if we are at the same place, its all in good fun. If I was crushing people, I would expect for them to bump my handicap.

There is a big difference in handicaps from one place to another.

There are players who spot me 3 games at silvertip that I used to have to play even at the 404 tournaments. Figure that one out.

I also split once (1/2) at Silvertip and my handicap was instantly bumped, I finished in the money another time with a small field and I was bumped again. From 5 to 7 in two weeks. Totally unjustified of course but I happened to play the tournament directors brother at the time and magically Im bumped. Now Raph runs them again and he laughed that the other guy bumped me.

I know Im not great and unfortunately I hit a decent shot every now and then that makes me come back day in day out to try and improve.
