    how are ya'll doing in league ?

    I’ll be there until Tuesday. 2 of my last 3 minis were against 680’s lost the first won in 9 got the second to 5 on 5/5 race. Came as a 7. Signed up as a 7/8 for the $50 ones. I don’t get the luxury of getting the high 500’s these past couple days and didn’t get an easy game yet. I’m only like...

    how are ya'll doing in league ?

    So not sure if I want our APA team to win in Vegas today. My flight got cancelled yesterday. Now I can’t get out there until late tomorrow. World Championship starts today. If our team loses we get moved to losers bracket and won’t play again until 2pm Saturday. If we win we have another match...

    Fargorate handicapped-with alt breaks.

    Seems more are going to that format. Just getting back into the tournament play. Not used to this alternating break stuff or even rack your own. Thanks for the input!

    Fargorate handicapped-with alt breaks.

    Yeah but my break usually gets me shape on the 1, usually makes a wing, and pops the 9 1/10 times on avg. I never go over 20 without popping a 9 in. I normally pop the 9 once each time I play the ghost. But not always. I’m not trying to make the 9 it just goes. Is it alternating with handicaps...

    A little help with my stroke

    I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for all the input you gave on this. Thank you! I really mean that. I started out shortening my cueing hand to where it was still comfortable. Then worked on dropping my elbow a bit. This has really improved my game and confidence level. My draw...

    Fargorate handicapped-with alt breaks.

    I can’t find it but I know for a fact, regardless of handicap, the guy/gal breaking statistically has a better chance of winning than if they are not breaking. At the bare minimum the breaker always has the chance to pop the 9 for a freebie at any level.

    Your worst beating story

    Around 2000 at the Green Room in DG Illinois on Ogden Ave(it’s gone now). Dude I’ve never seen before walks in with some friends. He wanted to play. “All right I’ll play”. He must’ve been all coked up out of his mind cause he kept talking how he could really see the edges that night. Well after...

    Fargorate handicapped-with alt breaks.

    I’m wondering if Mike Page has a different way of calculating fargorates in this type format. Cause if you think about it. In a 7-4 race. Let’s say the lower handicap wins 4-6. That lower handicapped player had 5 breaks. There is no way they’d get 5 breaks in a normal format. The player with...

    Fargorate handicapped-with alt breaks.

    Well I think it’s only a $20 entry. And always a full field. And it is great that the tournament is always full. What I’m asking is this. It’s when the fargorates are farther apart that I see it being an issue. Example. So you have a 700 against a 600. Who are you betting on in a regular 7-4...

    Fargorate handicapped-with alt breaks.

    Looking for some opinions on this. The one tournament near me that reports to fargorate is run this way. Fargorate handicapped with alternating breaks. It’s always full with rates ranging from 400 to 700. But it just seems unfair to have it handicapped and alternating breaks. The best players...

    What has happened to Billiards Gloves?

    I deleted my last comment. Sorry for stirring the pot. You want to use a glove, more power to you.

    What has happened to Billiards Gloves?

    I play in my humid garage all summer with no air conditioning. It’s so hot in there sometimes the beeswax in the seams sank a bit. Wood shaft. Never had a need for even powder. And I never clean my shaft…..I burnished it after about 4 mos of use 20-30 hours a week. It could have something to do...

    What has happened to Billiards Gloves?

    Plus I’ve seen waay too many players take a piss with their gloves on and not wash their hands after. That’s just disgusting!
