Well I am going to start this post off exactly like the last one it have a surprise ending.

I played bad last Sunday...barely beat a 3 in 8 ball by 4-1. I played another 3 I. 9 ball and bot mud holed 16-4.

I started not to go to double jeapordy tonight because I just wanted to take the whole week off and relax until 9 ball cities this weekend. I did not go to the night league last night.

Well I am glad I did or we would have been shorthanded due to a husband/ wife team mates had a personal issue come up.

So I faced a pretty tough 5 I 8 ball and won 4-1 with my only loss being a missed bank on the 8 and he ran the table.

Played the same guy 9 ball and I won 38-13 for a score of 18-2. Could have possibly had a shutout but I gave him bih one rack where I missed a kick at the one when he broke dry he ran 5 balls that inning preventing me from having a 20-0 shutout.


Oh yea ....we had some weird lopsided wins and losses this week in 9 ball.

Sunday night we were up 32-8 after 2 matches . I lost to the before mentioned 3 above by 16-4 and our Las 2 matches followed suit and we lost 54-46. Damn !

Well tonight was just the opposite. After I won the 4th match we were up 62-18. I have no idea how the last match went because I left early.

Very unlike my teams to have such lopsided scores....wow !!!

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.
Congrats and good luck

After a completely horrible showing in 8-ball on Tuesday, I bounced back nicely at 9-ball last night, beating an SL6 16-4.

He was clearly not playing up to his usual form (he and I have played each other for years, always fun matches) and I played much better than I have in the last few weeks, tho I did have a few stinkers, more than I should have.

Onward and hopefully upward

Nice shooting dub.

I hope I pick up sat morning where I left off Thur night.


Like you I sometimes play pretty decent then have been known to stink up the place .

I doubt if we do very good since we only have 4 eligible players in the cities but strange things can happen during a match.

We did a Tri-Cup once with just four players, got into the final round. Definetely a challenge, but it can be done! Good luck

There is plausible deniability for the LO to have a "ringer" team. Heck, we made it to vegas with a strong roster that had 1 rank change during the tournament, and that was the only rank change in over a year. Plus it was the 7 bumping to an 8, not our 3's who have been killing it in the standings for the past 12 months.

And I know for a FACT that we aren't one of her favorite teams (completely due to my me).
My team is the one that made it to nationals last year in eight ball, got back had a few people complain about our handicaps few players went up, put us in tight spot. And here we go again this year love it.

I played 9 ball last night vs an 8. I won 13-7.. It's strange how 7's ...8's and 9's dont intimidate me. I guess its because I dont really expect to win so I feel no pressure at and and I wind up shooting pretty good. I put pressure on myself against 5's and 6's and its more or less a 50/50 shot I win. When I win i win big like last week it was 18-2 vs another 5.


Good shooting 3's and 4's worry the crap out of me and it shows sometimes and i lose.

Did not play 8 ball last night..

Debating on whether to go to 9 ball league tonight. Like I said in a previous post...i have cut back playing 5 nights a week. Getting too old to work all day and stay out late at league...especially not its pretty hot outside.

I checked the player standings last night.
I am 2nd out of 61 players.
The guy in first place was ahead of me by 43 points.He has 5 more games then me due to my team already having a bye week.
I scored a 46 out of 50 last night.
We will see how this all shakes out next Wednesday.
Also when his team has their bye week I could be in first place.

No big table play along with once a week is starting to catch up with me, getting out of line mostly.
Won7 - 6 against a guy I beat 7-0 last time, and he hasn't improved lol. Broke dry everytime too.

Played the toughest match I've had in a long time last night.....against a SL2.

Never a fan of throwing off, tho I wasn't surprised when the other captain did so. The lady is a friend, and has been improving her game in the last year or so.

After the first couple racks, I thought I was gonna get 20-oh'd....or at least beaten 18-2. She was making shots from everywhere, and I couldn't run 3 balls.

I hung in tho, and eventually she started missing, i started putting small runs together and I pulled out the 12-8 win. Most stressful match I had in a very long time.

I've been doing pretty good in my 9 ball league the past couple sessions. I finally got moved up to a 5 after a good showing at the ltc's a couple weeks ago. Last night was my first league night as a 5 and I beat another 5 who has been in the league forever 17 to 3.

Well done!!! Does it feel good to move up and play well?

IMHO, after moving to a 5 it was those strong rank 3's who give me the most trouble. The handicap is just at the point where 5 vs. 3 gives the advantage to the 3. Please chime in in a few months after you've played some 3's and LMK if this feeling is total garbage, or if you also find those strong 3's to be the most troublesome.

And a bit of the same with rank 7. If they are even medium skill level 7's then it's a tough mathematical match-up.


• Stirling Moss once said “There are two things no man will admit he cannot do well: drive and make love.”

• But then smarter Albert Einstein said, “Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”
