    "Best of" vs. "Race to" in Snooker

    Coming from a pool background, where everyone is playing in a "Race to" mode, I'm quite fascinated by the fact that Snooker still uses this "Best of" approach, rather popular in the American playoff formats (NHL, NBA, etc.) Is there a particular reason why Snooker matches are then played in...

    BilliardManager - Your pool tracking app for iOS and Android

    Thank you for your honest feedback! I can understand, that it might not always be super obvious, what the actual benefits of the PRO subscription are, which was one of the reasons for the overhaul of that "pro" section on the app's website => BilliardManager Website Hope that already clarifies...

    BilliardManager - Your pool tracking app for iOS and Android

    Hey Evan, thanks for sharing your experience and sorry to hear about your issue. Of course, this makes 100% sense and prevents closing the app by accident (which I didn't even know you can until now) Will have a look into this and hopefully find a way to intersect this interaction and show the...

    Stats -- Van Boening vs. Chua 10-Ball Race to 63, September 2022

    Well, the BilliardManager app is actually providing a lot of stats on matches and also on set-based matches, once you subscribe to the pro-version of it. However, the tracking is quite minimal on all disciplines to not disturb the focus - e.g. the app doesn't track misses, success on breaks...

    BilliardManager - Your billiard journey companion for iOS and Android

    Sounds great, looking forward hearing your feedback on it! I know the app by predator and quite liked it ever since, but you seem to be right, that they stopped the development on it. Unfortunately, replicating the feature with its audio tracking isn't trivial at all. Maybe you reach out to...

    BilliardManager - Your billiard journey companion for iOS and Android

    Hey AZB-members! Almost a year ago, my "billiard-app-development-journey" started with the very first version of "Practice 14.1", providing players around the globe with an easy to use tool to track and analyze their practice sessions and matches of 14.1 straight pool. Since then, I was able...

    BilliardManager - Your pool tracking app for iOS and Android

    Almost one year ago, the very first app version of Practice 14.1 was released in the AppStore. At that time, with the clear goal of supporting the training of 14.1 straight pool. Since then, the app has been able to constantly evolve: New game formats, functions and general improvements have...

    BilliardManager - Your pool tracking app for iOS and Android

    Looking forward to hear your feedback, @center pocket ! The data analysis will only consider 14.1 workouts by now, as the other formats don't offer a detailed tracking. However, I will put this under consideration for a future update.

    Break & Runouts in One-Pocket & Bank-Pool

    Happy to hear you're enjoying it, thanks! :love: Displaying the remaining time in time-based workouts was already on the list for a future update, and having a pause / resume option for the countdown makes totally sense for that, too! Thanks for the suggestions, will definitely have a look...

    Break & Runouts in One-Pocket & Bank-Pool

    Hey @cjr3559 absolutely correct - the app got a new image / brand to accompany for now being much more than just a tool to "Practice 14.1". Will make an official announcement in the original thread soon, as this comes with some cool new features, too! :cool: As I see, you discovered some of...

    Break & Runouts in One-Pocket & Bank-Pool

    Wow, thanks a lot for all the replies! Really helped me digging deeper into the topic and to me, it seems like a break & run isn't nearly as common in those disciplines as in the others (even if it "is" possible theoretically ;) ), nor is it a published / regarded statistics metric.

    Break & Runouts in One-Pocket & Bank-Pool

    Hey all I recently got myself into trying and playing these rather "unpopular" disciplines and already learned a lot from them for the more common pool disciplines. Not knowing too much about them form an intermediate-pro level, it got me thinking whether or not one can regularly manage to...
