5 ahead 1pkt
7 ahead 9-ball on 9ft
race to 150 straight pool
8 ahead 8 ball on 7ft
10 ahead 10 ball on 7ft


You have Athens / mike b / somphet / phil / jody ? ? ? thats what ive heard anyhow. And what is your team willing to post up as a total purse ?


Also if anyone ever wants to find out who the best players in town are, they should match up something like this.

I'm thinking between $200-$300 a man so each match is worth about $1000-$1500. I haven't really heard of people doing it before and I can't anticipate the problems that could come up but it sounds easy enough to do.

Only one I can think of is if 4 sets finish and it's 2-2, do you back it up or not? stuff like that. I think going beyond $300/person to start with might be too steep. I do think it should all be even up because of the team concept. I also think my guys would play for less money to try it out. I'm thinking if we start it here in town before you know it other guys from other places would come and try it out.

I just like the idea of this better than the 25 game format race to 13. More fun to sweat. Plus out of 5 matches going on people not involved would be rail betting and people would really enjoy it.

Neat how my name gets committed before I have actually committed. Sounds like a pretty good idea if it ever goes off, but for me to play I would like to be in at least 50% stroke, and since I haven't even picked up a pool cue in almost two weeks...

I would be more than happy to play this format in the fall though.

That was just an educated guess from Jason and I neither confirmed nor denied the statement. You told me how much stuff you have going on and planned as of late and that's cool with me. No pressure it's all still just an idea at this point. When it gets more serious we'll talk more.

I completely understand...my comment was lighthearted...

I think it would be fun, actually I think it would be a blast, but for a big match like that I would want to be playing regularly so that I know I am giving my best effort. Especially in a team event like that, I wouldn't want to let my teammates down.

Who knows, maybe I'll try to find my cues in a couple weeks and start playing a little. I have to admit, all this new action has me thinking about it.

If they're too deep in the shed I can loan you a player haha. Action is always good!

So, who are your five? Jason C., Jamie F., Jon B., Wes, Vic? Justin maybe?

I think the most interesting part would be deciding who plays what game...what would the format be for that? There are so many different ways you could do it, and the outcome could be influenced a great deal by the individual matchups.

mikey frost I really get a kick out of reading this thread and the old thread about Iowa. If I wasnt in the military I would love to get up there in the action. Maybe I could be a sub for one of your guys. I wish. Anyways keep posting about whats going on up there. My days at work have been much more enjoyable reading your posts.

Thanks

You could do it like a team match.

Flip a coin, winning team either throws a player, or passes.
Then rotate turns for 2, 3, 4 and 5th players.

Have an idea of what order the games are going to be, and base your player order on that. So game one will be 8 ball on a bar table, whos team #1's player, then who is team #2's player. Game two will be 1pkt who is team #2's player, and who is team #1's player.

Although im sure if you said the games are gonna be like i said, then your team would already know whos playing what game.

I saw Rice the other day at lunch and chatted with him for a bit...not sure if he has been playing much at all but he would probably be a stronger fit then Vic and maybe Justin depending on the game.

I was under the impression that this "Team Match" was something that you and Mikey came up with. Do you know who the other five were going to be?

And as far as our lineup, it isn't really as straight forward as it seems. There are a number of different strategies that could be used. It would definitely be interesting.

The more I talk about it and think about it the more I am thinking about playing this summer...
