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.
we have about the same win percentage dub, keep it up.

i sympathize with you dub about the having to manage people, i get frustrated with it sometimes myself.

the 1st session i played in i told them i was leaving that team.... too much drama. a couple people left with me and we formed another team. it went ok for a couple years but i told them i wanted a more competitive team so they made me captain. i got a couple new players and 3 sessions later we made vegas.

since vegas i still have problems keeping people...damn. another problem i have is a low level player that is really hurting us with his really poor level of playing . he is a really nice old man but he is just one of those people who will never get better than he is. i casually mentioned to my co-captain and my gf that i thought about dropping him and they both said .. NO WAY !!. yet they both say he is not a very good player ... so whaddya do ?

my tue night team is my most laid back team. the captain made me co-captain but i don't do any co-captaining unless she aint there. no responsiblities, my gf don't play on that team, no league fee to pay on that night. no scorekeeping unless the captain ain't there which hardly ever happens. i just show up and play. only drawback is we do play in some dive bars but hey i guess you can't expect perfection in apa can you.

watch out for that pool bug . he bit me bad when i got back into pool and joined league play. i wound up playing 5 nights a week and just now cut it down to a more manageable 3 times a week.

giggle...still shooting between 48-50 %..still a 5/5.

Not sure if I'm still on the team..I was just filling in.
Their set for Regionals this spring/summer in 9-ball.
Thats if they can keep the team together..numbers
are really tight..they need a 2/3 badly.

happy holidays.

APA 3 in 8-ball. Played 10 matches this sessions, won half of them. Probably most disappointed about last weeks. Lost 2-1 to another 3 who I had killed for two hours straight just two nights before playing casually.

It's my third session.playoffs start next week. About 50% lifetime win average. Goals for next session are to break into the top 5 in my tier, win 60% or more of my matches! and to start playing more higher level players! which my captain has said he will if I want.

I think I've reached a plateau currently, and wanna start playing above my level,to see if it helps me.

Also play a Thursday night league, usually play one single and one doubles game per night. Doing well in singles, not so well in the doubles. Just joined this team and league this year, the team is made up of young,inexperienced guys. At 29, I'm one of the older guys who's there every week.

Looking into playing APA 9-ball next session,and I'll continue running my monthly tournaments.

I recently got into a new league of all B players, i shot quite good and am in 1ste place after 13 matches only losing 4 points, so i am satisfied for the moment, got a 6 point lead over number two but what i concern the most about is that i lost those 4 points to players i should have won easily from, and again the top players i lost nothing.
guess its a matter of focus but it really bothers me !
just ordered up a new cue so i'm only shooting with a house cue for the moment, after i will receive my cue ( bob danielson ) i hope to practice a lot more and get more consistent, and take the 1st prize home , so i'm doing good, am satisfied but after new year when i'm ready to go with my own cue i'm hoping to get on the next level !

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.

We always give up around 8-12 points per round unless we are playing our rivals who have all 9s and an 8. The two teams that are stacked always come in first or second out of around 14 teams.

I play in an APA 8-Ball open league. No BCA league closeby unfortunately. We just finished up the fall session Tuesday by clinching first place for the second session in a row. Also my second session playing in APA. SL6. Went 11-3 this session but got to the hill in all three losses. I was ranked 5th in top gun going into this week. Wish I could play more but too much going on. Its fun. I enjoy playing. I enjoy the competition. I enjoy the night out with my buddies.

Played my first season in an APA 8 ball league this fall. I started by loosing my first 2 matches. Then I won 7 straight with a couple of shut outs. Then I was bumped to a 4. I tried playing the last 2 matches with flu symptoms against 3s and lost both . To make it worse I won the first 2 games of both matches, and could not close the deal Now I'm at 7 wins - 4 loses.

Been playing APA 9b with friends for several seasons.
Our team just got knocked out in semi's... the players who usually win, lost. The ones who usually lose, won.
It's a good time and we're all buddies, and we often hover around the top 3 spots, but when
the pressure's on we fold like an origami corgi.

I'm doing ok personally, for the first few seasons I was 100% as a 7, got some MVP patches.
But I got cocky. They raised me to a 9 and not long after I had my first loss in a long time.
Then a few more and I was starting to wonder if I just lost my drive.
I don't think it was the handicap, I think I just got complacent.

But since then I've won a couple more but I've managed to stabilize at just over 80%. Someone else will get MVP
and I'm fine with that, he's a friend who's in the same boat I was before... he's winning 90% but he's underranked.
Sometimes it takes a while for the system to adjust.

I don't get to play much because the numbers rarely work, but I always enjoy the night out.
Try to watch every match and I always stay til the end, I enjoy trying to help with timeouts
and I don't even mind scoring anymore.

That's what I figured out my first session. It took an entire session for me to bump to an SL5 from an SL3 at the start. The first match I had ever played in, I played an SL4 with myself being defaulted to an SL4. He won 3-2, it was basically runout 8-ball and I sold out on a difficult safety. It was a fun match for sure.

Now he's an SL6 (I believe) and I'll be playing on the team he plays for, next session.

That is really cool!

Only two things wrong with TAP League scoring.

When someone scratches on a shot and incoming player has ball in hand.

a. Maybe that first ball made with ball in hand should be counted as a dead ball.
b. Maybe when you make a ball and scratch, maybe that should also be a dead ball. It maybe a complete, but it is a screw up. I know all the numbers need to add up but scratches and ball in hand shots should be counted some other way.

And break and runs should count more toward figuring someone's handicap.

If you can break and run over 20 racks in a year, you really shouldn't be a 5.
