how are ya'll doing in league ?
 
i am just curious how some of you guys are playing and hoe some people respond without this going to another league bashing thread. feel free to respond no matter what league.

i was playing 5 times a week and cut out fri night scotch doubles double jeapordy last session. i just finished up in house bcapl points based money league and also dropping it too.

it seemed like i was just getting wore out playing so much and working 5 days a week also.

i play sunday night apa double jeapordy, tue night apa 8 ball travel and sat napa. i am captain of the sunday night and sat napa teams.

i started out slow on sun night 9 ball losing my 1st 3.. winning 1 .. losing 1 and then winning my last 6 in a row. i have really come on strong lately beating a 7 by a score of 17-3 and 2 5's both by a score of 18-2. my co-captain asked me to sit out last sun night 9 ball because he is afraid of me going up to a 6 in playoffs lol. with him just being raised to a 9 and us just losing our 1 who quit he is afraid of us not making the 23 limit.

sun night 8 ball i have not been doing too good. record of 4-6 so far with me winning last sun night against another tough 5 by a score of 4-3. i was on the verge of losing until he rattled the pocket on his last ball with me on the 8 which i made with no problem.

last night on my travel team i faced a 5 ...winning 4-2 in 10 innings with 1 break and run. i have not played 8 ball that good in a while.

well i look forward to my sat napa league where i will probably gat my ass kicked like i normally do. a lot of real good players in that league... what wins i have gotten did not come easy.

i would love to hear how some of you guys are doing.

We're in the middle of a long break between napa sessions. Won't start up again until mid-January. I always hate the breaks... besides no pool, I'm always scrambling to find some players for my team.

As for how I'm doing personally, I'm glad we're between sessions. I'm in something of a slump and am ready to snap my cue and say f*** it. Going on vacation next week... 7-10 days with no pool... I think I need it. :)

well I play in 2 8 ball APA divisions. I last season I went on a losing streak from various things such as eye sight going bad and working 7 says a week for months at a time. anyways I used to be a SL7 and I went down to a 6. I had a goal this season to reach top gun in both div.

I won top gun on thursdays and tied for first on tuesdays but lost it due to wining percentage. so I figure i ll be going back up to a 7 sometime soon. anyways it was fun while it lasted (being a 6)

brandoncook26 12-18-2013 07:32 PM

I haven't lost a game yet this session.










Coincidentally, I haven't played one either :)

I went 40-4 this last session and didn't get the MVP. My teammate won it tho. My team won first place. Proud to Captain such a strong, classy team of BCA 9s

yea i know the feeling about always looking for players.:frown: it seems like every session some one moves outa town or something.

i am not sure about the schedule for sat or sun leagues but last night i was told we dont play until jan 7th in that league. guess i oughta get off my ass and look it up being i am the captain those of those 2 teams.

i am in 1st place for top gun in my 9 ball league. damn near last place on sun night 8 ball and 6th place tue night 8 ball.

to me there is not much difference between a 6 or 7 as far as races to handicaps in 8 ball. 9 ball is a different story though in spotting points.

good luck getting back to a 7.

you taking a hiatus or something. :D

ctyhntr 12-18-2013 08:24 PM

My second season of APA after two years hiatus where I struggled as a SL3.
SL 5 in 8-ball 60%, won 6, played 10
SL 4 in 9-ball, 73%, won 8, played 11
6 in MVP (73%) and 5 in top gun (31 points). Last week I achieved my first 8-ball rackless

Individual 9-ball, BCA sanctioned league
So far I won 7, lost 5 matches, cumulative 62 games won and lost 82 games.
Highlight of my season so far was beating the B+ (5-6 straight up). The B+ has a 6-2 record this season.

i played bcapl years ago when it was available here and enjoyed it .as i stated i just dropped my wed night bcapl points based money league. i started the team and was captain of it... my co-captain is still trying to talk me into playing next session. he went as far as keeping my name on the roster he just turned in for next session.

i love playing pool but am getting up in years and it was just wearing me out playing so much. we finished in 3rd place this session so i feel pretty good about that.

let me ask you a question if you don't mind.... in your league do you give up points each match considering you are loaded with all 9's?

btw... congrats on the 1st place finish.:thumbup:

Both my 8-ball and 9-ball teams are having mediocre sessions, tho the 9-ball team is within striking distance of the playoffs, if a whole lot goes right.

I'm at about 60% in 9-ball, and only about 40% in 8-ball...lost last week in a match I had clearly in hand, and let slip away. Very frustrating. Mental errors, more on that later.

Still SL5 in both, also frustrating, but understandable. Captaining one team and co-captaining the other, so I don't play on the practice table much on league nights. And I haven't been getting other nights to practice consistently. Christmas is almost over, so work should get a little more calm, perhaps I'll get back to regular practice nights in the new year. I'll have a few days where I'm thinking "a-ha, this is progress..." and then the next night I'll regress. I have to eliminate the steps backward, and remain more consistent.

I must admit, my 8-ball team has been bringing me down a bit the last two sessions. Some personality conflicts. It's got to the point this session where I really wasn't enjoying myself. I work as a manager 6 days a week in my job, I don't want to have to "manage" people when I'm playing pool. A few of us are trying to work out forming a new team with the core from the old team, adding a few different players that we've played with before. As is often the case with APA, we need to work out adding another lower level player for balance, but I think we're almost ready to pull the trigger. I hate to do this, but I'm not interested in going through another session like this current one.

APA season just ended for 8 and 9 ball teams. Planned on dropping 8 ball and picking up a bca 9 ball. On the way out of the pool room got hit up to join an 8ball team on a different day. I like the people so said I would. So 1 8ball, 1 9ball team next season and plan on joining an inhouse 14.1 league that I am way out classed in, but should help my game. I also shoot in a Sr. tourny every Wed. Guess the pool bug has bite me on the butt again after so many years away.

softshot 12-18-2013 10:24 PM

well I'll tell ya.. our team is one round out of first place.. we had to play the worst team in the league tonight.. I am on a 7 match win streak heading into tonight..... and I got smoked by the worst player ( according to the average) in the entire league... had 3 matches lost them all..... our team took 3 out of 4 rounds.. but I flat out embarrassed myself.. I haven't shot this bad in the better part of a decade..... I'm looking forward to the two week break coming up... I gotta fix this.. I have 4 days off next week time to wear some lines into the felt...I'm flat out disgusted with myself.... I missed with F***ING BALL IN HAND!!!!..


time for a beer.....

thats an impressive win % you have going. hope you keep it up.

tryin2hustle 12-18-2013 10:47 PM

I play Vnea. Last session went 61 wins and 9 losses. This session I'm 24 wins and only 1 loss on a horrible stupid shot I missed. Slight brag here.
