Best win percentage in your apa league - 10-05-2017, 03:37 PM

I was looking through my league stats on some of the best players in our area.Seem to have lifetime win percentages in the high 70s.I was wondering if you had any monsters in your leagues with way higher lifetime win percentages.Not talking about a 7 that came in one session and won every match,more a guy with several hundred matches or more really dominating everybody.

Um, <shrug> <looks at ground>...I know a guy that has a win % in the 80's...hasn't lost a local 9 ball match in a couple years...played APA for 22 years, started as a 3 and worked up to a 7 over like 6 years or so. Started 9 ball as a 7 and went up to a 9 in about 2 sessions. If I...oops I mean "he"...could only count matches as a 7 the win % would be higher.

Not a monster, just an ok player in a community of not so many ok players.

Just an FYI, an over-time win percentage of
67% means you are 100 points above the average of your opponents
80% means you are 200 points above the average of your opponents
89% means you are 300 points above the average of your opponents

How are you able to look up other players stats? The only players stats I can look up are ones that have played on the same team with me and I have never played on the same team with our stronger players. Usually I am the best player on my teams and i fluctuate between a 5 and 6.

The couple of higher level players I have played with7/7 or 7/8 are around 55-60% lifetime and they are not our stronger players in our area.

My stats are middle of the road...hovering around 50% . 51.86 with 755 matches in 8 ball. 52.62 with 591 matches in 9 ball. I think its worth noting though that most of my matches are vs the best players on the opposing team. I very seldom throw myself blind because I hate getting dumped on.

I learned that lesson from a captain who is an 8. After I beat him several times he started dumping his wife or son on me and would throw himself against whoever I threw blind in the first or second round.

Well us820, my stats for eight years of play in our local APA league are ridiculous. Played three sessions per year but only eight or so matches per session. Including my three trips to Regionals and one to Nationals in singles, APA claims I lost 16 matches. After checking each years stats, I only find twelve losses. No one can explain the difference. As I played a total of 230 matches, my winning percentage was 93%! Didn't lose a match for the last three years. Played all the other "7's" in my league. Some more than once.

So what does a winning percentage like that prove? In my view, NOTHING. Being a "monster" gained me NOTHING. Players refused to play when I showed up for singles qualifiers. Not going to pay $160 or so to run my own board. The verdict? I'm retired from APA.

Playing Cue - Sort of Straight
Break Cue - Broken
Jump Cue - Looks Great in my Case!
Wrap - None
Tip - Only When the Service AND Food are Good
Case - JB Cases 4 x 8 Custom Case. Joe Porper Vinyl 2 x 4 (Vegas). Joe Porper 2 x 4 Leather for storage (OK, it's empty)

Nicknames - Dead Money, Salamander, Tomato Can, Weekend Warrior, Short Stop, Banger, Ron Casanzio Wannabe, NIT and the recently added Lamb Slayer in no special order. Wow what a list!

How the hell are you supposed to sandbag with stats like that?! I thought everyone's life-long dream in the APA is to sandbag, get to Vegas, lose first round, repeat.

Your post is exactly why I dont want to play in a singles board unless there are enough players to break it into brackets....but for the opposite reason you state. I dont want to go spend all day playing a singles board and finally make it to the finals only to be shut out by a player of your caliber.

Dont get me wrong. I enjoy playing higher level players in the hopes of learning from them. However if I come in on a weekend and spend 20.00-25.00 entering a board tournament I want to at least play opponents of my caliber and let whoever is playing best that day move on. 2 sides to every coin Lynn.

So whats wrong with this? 79% life win and a 525 Fargo. Only 2 sessions of BCA possibly?

Spot on. My winning percentage is 93 in 8 ball and 89 in 9 ball. Qualifying becomes difficult. People complain you shouldn't be allowed in league. Play league for a night out with my wife and play tournaments for competitive challenge. I also enjoy teaching other players that want to learn.
