Miscellany from the data for the 2015 US Bar Table Men's 8-Ball Championship
[This relates only to the 19 streamed matches, not to all matches in the event.]

• In tournament winner Ignacio's 4 streamed matches, he broke successfully at a 71% rate (12 of 17), won on his break at a 65% rate (11 of 17), and broke and ran at a 47% rate (8 of 17). All 3 rates were just slightly above the overall averages for the 19 streamed matches.

• The most balls made on a single break was six, by Shaw, and he ran out the game. Next highest was four balls on the break -- once each by Shaw and Roberts. Both of those games also were B&R's.

• The average number of balls made on the break was 1.2 (this includes dry and fouled breaks). Excluding dry breaks, the average was 1.6. Excluding dry and fouled breaks, the average was 1.7.

• Following the 11 breaking fouls, the incoming player ran out the game 9 times (82%).

• 79% of the games ended in one inning -- 44% won by the breaker (B&R) and 35% won by the non-breaker.

• 62% of the games were run out by the player who was at the table following the break -- 44% won by the breaker (B&R) and 17% won by the non-breaker following a fouled or dry break.

• The average match score was 5 - 2.6

• The average elapsed time for the matches was 49 minutes, or 6.5 minutes per game. The elapsed time was measured from the lag until the winning ball was made (or conceded), so it includes time for racking and breaks (time-outs).

• The Sossei d. Louie match was both longest in elapsed time (98 min.) and highest in average minutes per game (10.9). This resulted not from unusually slow play throughout the match, but from one extremely long game. In that game, Dan Louie broke dry and 14 of the 15 balls were on the breaker's left side of the table, with most of them between the foot rail and the side pocket. This resulted in lots of thinking and lots of safes.

• The Shaw d. Saez match was shortest in elapsed time (26 min. for the 5 games). The Shaw d. J. Bustamante match was lowest in average minutes per game (4.3 min./game for the 7 games).
