In my Google travels, I recall coming across a trial run of a new point scoring system for 8-ball.
I don't remember the specifics, but I believe each 8 ball matchup was worth 3 points; resulting in a 15 point night. A close match was 2-1, whereas a blowout was 3-0. Seems like the goal is to reward close 8-ball matches (e.g. like 9-ball), instead of the all-or-nothing approach.
From my email its says
Player A wins shutout; they win 3-0
Player A wins but Player B wins a game; Player A gets 2-0
Player A wins but Player B gets to hill; split 2-1
What is the contingency for the (albeit rare) occurrence where the matches end up scoring like this:
Final Split 6-9. Away team loses three Hill-Hill matches, but sweeps the last two and comes away the winner?
I'm curious how they've covered this scenario...
I would assume its just like 9-ball, in that you accumulate points all season, and the only time ties are of any concern are playoffs. Winning the week isnt critical. Beyond that, there isnt any scenario that needs covering, by my best guess.
