D-Open What do you think? - 04-13-2005, 11:19 AM

Now I've sent this out here before (I got from here I think). After the MEN Women Pool stuff, I wanted to know

1. Do people feel thi9s is fairly accurate.
2. Would this be universal (men and women) or should there be a diffrent D-Open for men and women.
3. If it should be diffrent (between men and women) what should it be.
4. Where do you stand in this system on your good and avarage nights (I'ld love to hear from the Pros if they want to answer it)???

I don't want to stir up crap here or say who is better, I just wonder where people stand.



In a 9-Ball Tournament race to 7

Dec.1997 "All About Pool" magazine, article by Bob Cambell
Handicap rankings

D- Player
-will not run a rack
-average run is about 3 balls
-with ball in hand, will get out from the 7, one out of 3 times
-rarely plays a successful safe

C-Player
-will probably run one rack, but usually not more than one
-avg. run is 3 to 5 balls
-with ball in hand, will get out from the 7, two out of 3 times
-mixed results when playing safe
-inning ends due to botched position, missed shot or attempting a safe.

B-Player
-Able to run 1 to 3 racks
-avg. run is 5-7 balls
-with ball in hand will get out form the 5, 2 out of 3 times
-most of the time a "B" player will play a "safety" which maybe hit easily 2 out of 3 times
-a typical inning will end with a missed shot, a fair safety, or a won game

A-Player
-will string 2 to 3 racks
-avg. ball run, 7-9
-with ball in hand, will be out from the 3 ball, 2 out of 3 times
-typical inning will end with a well executed safety or a win.

OPEN-Players
-average 8+ balls
-string racks together more than once in a match
-is a threat to run out from every ball, from every position, every inning
-typical inning will end in excellent safety or win


Me on an avarage night a good C , on a great night I hit mid B range .

If I could change the "run 1 to 3 racks" with "will probably run one" I'd be a B player but basing strictly on this I am definitely a C player. Actually, basing it on B players that I know, I am definitely a C player.

Dave - needs to practice more...

1. Yes, it's fairly accurate. Although it doesn't entirely account for players who are offensively/defensively minded, the descriptions can be slightly modified to accommodate all.

2. Yes, it's universal. This should not be redefined according to gender. However, it should be noted that some WPBA touring professionals would not be catagorized as "Open" players but should still be treated as professionals. If you're using this catagorization for an amateur event, it should exclude a WPBA Touring Professional, even if she would be rated as a B.

3. See above.

4. For the past few years, I've been ranked as a B+. I've been working on my game fairly heavily the past six months and feel I'm a solid 'A' now.
