I am playing bad this week.

Lost 15-5 to a 4 last night in 9 ball.

Won 4-1 vs a 4 in 8 ball tonight but I was shooting bad though.

Team Won first 2 matches yesterday & play and play at 2pm today & need 2 more wins to get to Vegas.

I didn't play the first match & played the last match cause we only needed 2 points. So 25 balls for me vs 46 of my opponent. I "won" 25-6.

The team we're playing first today has an 8 so if he plays I'll match up with him. Otherwise I'm a timeout caller and beer getter.

Couple people on our team played great yesterday. Our best 4 won 18-2 & 14-6. Our 2 won 18-2, she'll be moving up to a 3 I'm almost sure, and she should.

Now it's single elimination. Of all the things APA does that I don't care for (but understand them all) the modified single elimination tournament is probably at the top of my "I don't like this" list.

I want the thrill of victory & have never made it to Vegas on a 23 team (been masters last 3-4 years) but I'm definitely going for masters (at the end of the tourney) and I think 9ball is at the beginning of the APA Nationals. Not sure I'm looking forward to 10 days out in Vegas again. I've been to BCA singles & teams the last 4-5 years and not doing that this year.

Gotta win 2 more matches still and that'll be tough...

Good luck to you and your team. Speaking of masters.

We had our masters team Vegas qualifier yesterday. In the 1st round I played the 3rd match and had to win 7-3 vs a 6 for our team to advance .i managed to win 5 racks before he won his 3rd.

Ironically I faced the exact same scenario the 2nd round. Needed to win 7-3 bs a 6 for us to advance. I managed to only win 3 this time .

Masters singles qualifier is being held today..i chose not to go because I was just wore out from being there all day yesterday and realm dont have a chance in hell of won in it anyway.. 5's aint supposed to win a masters single qualifier anyway.....did put 2-8's and a 6 out when I won the regional qualifier but that's handicapped format though

Surprisingly I played great yesterday....just not great enough to win lol

We qualified for Vegas! With some amazing sudden death wins. We were down 35-45 in sudden death and my wife won 19-1 to win us the semi-final match. Then, down 36-44 our 5 won 15-5 vs an 8 in the finals match to win 51-49. As I've never played in

As expected, I didn't play and our 2 went up to a 3. I wanted to play the last match as they had an 8 and I thought he would end up playing but with our 2 going up to a 3 and the way the match played out I couldn't play as it woulda put us over the 23 rule. My wife struggled the first day but she played great the second day.

So, if anyone else is going let me know as I'll be there for the whole tournament now.

A great story of comebacks to make it to the Nationals!!!

Vegas will be pretty horrible to be at for 2+ weeks though. Hope you spend a few days sleeping by the pool or on a good buzz.

I'll see you down there during the 9-ball portion (look for the guy lounging by the pool)!

Our 9-Ball Team played an excellent regional tournament this past weekend and won the spot to Vegas. The five of us played like a team should and when somebody lost the others picked them up. In each of the four matches we played, different people lost and different people won. I'm very proud to be part of such a great team.

I wish them all the best in Vegas as I wont be able to join them. My wife is also on the team and one of us must stay back to look after our daughter. It only makes sense for me to stay home, as my wife is a lower handicap and they will need her every round. If I was to go we would have to forfeit one match in each round we play due to not being able to meet the 23 rule.

There is always the fall singles which I will be playing in to try and win a spot to Vegas in both 8 & 9 ball.

Still really enjoying CPA/APA 8 Ball, 9 Ball and Masters. :-)

I am still struggling playing low handicap players. A couple weeks ago, I absolutely destroyed a couple of APA 6 players in both 8 and 9 ball.

Last night I played a guy that obviously was a strong player, and I assumed he was a APA 6 or 7. Nobody on my team wanted to play him (they knew him, I didnt). Screw him, Ill play him.

He won the flip and broke dry and I ran out. I broke, made a few balls, tried to play safe. I executed it poorly, and he ran out. He broke, didnt make a ball, and I made about 2 balls and hooked myself, resulting in giving him ball in hand. He runs out and offers his hand, and I am stunned, he said that was it, I am a 3 and only needed to win 2.....Yep, this SL3 runs out two racks including banking the 8 on one of the games, never gets out of line, and I am giving up 4 games on the wire?

Freakin handicaps.

Playing APA has taught me, those players of old, who gave up the mortal nuts to get a game have given me an amazing eye opening. I have more respect for those guys who have "outran the nuts" than anyone that has played even in a tough match.

Best of rolls to all,

Ken

Back to being frustrated, after a few weeks of what I considered progress.

Got destroyed by a good friend SL7, 5-0 last night. No shame in losing to him, nor even to him shutting me out. The frustration is from how poorly I played, not in the actual losing. It wasn't from how he left me, I had plenty of opportunities and simply didnt execute appropriately.

It really shouldn't be necessarily in my head from being up against such a strong player. He's very good, but I've played (and won) versus other guys his speed.

I simply flat out sucked.

Very frustrating. Back at it again tomorrow

It sounds like you aren't struggling against lower rated players, you are struggling against wolves in sheep's clothing

My first time playing league was last night.
They ranked me at 4.
First match was 9 ball against a SL4. I was kind of nervous and missed a lot of easy balls including a gimme, 9 straight in the pocket, I lost 25 to 31
Second match was 8 ball against SL6, I won 3 to 4.
I enjoyed it, I will definitely play some more!

After being out of any leagues for 5+ years, I was coaxed into playing one this year. I'm starting to figure out which end of the cue stick to use. I think I've lost a total of five games (or less) the last three matches (7-2, 7-2 10-ball, 5-1 8-ball), which isn't spectacular by any means, but it's so far the best stretch all season. And I'm starting to remember how to play on a bar table after not really competing on one for these dry years.
