I dont care for one pocket as i think its a veey slow game but you wont see me bashing the game or anyone on here loves it.

Just turned 67 years young last wendesday.

What you call bashing is me stating my personal opinion. First amendment right.

One Pocket is slow, as it requires a lot of thoughts & decisions.

Should I take chance, play safe, or ?

Well let me put it this way. Since i do not care for one pocket i see no reason to jump into a thread about it and give all sorts of negative opinions about the game and the people who play it.


In other words ... I do not go into one pocket threads and stir shit up just because i dont like it like you do in every apa thread.

Well it is my just voicing my opinion, not a crime, and if some persons feeling are hurt.

Maybe they need get thick skin. Live is not fair, pretty, always as you like.

FWIW, I didn't read Coco's posts as being excessively negative, more stating his point of view.

I'm pro trophies. A memento of an achievement you're proud of means more to me than a bit of small amount of cash that will get swallowed up amongst bills and salary.

But different things motivate different people. And even winning money at poker feels a lot better than just getting the same amount of free money, so the distinction between patches and cash might not even be so clear-cut.

OP's post seemed to be questioning whether there was anything more than a trophy to be gained, so I think it kind of invites the discussion to some extent.

I tend to post with out being PC, I was in a business where people were in hurry, nothing was sugar coated. One day people where telling you your idea was stupid.

Three days later they were on phone giving you work, sometime non of this made sense.

You learns to get use to bring idiot with dumb idea one day. Then three days later your a hero.

No coxo did not post anything excessively negatuve. Just the same old crap he does in every league thread.

He seems to be real obsessed with.opp...other peoples money.

1. He starts out with the same question in every league thread. How much does rhe league operator make ? What bussiness is it of his ? When he goes to a restaurant and orders a meal does he ask how much the owner makes ? When he buys a pair od shoes does he ask the owner of the shoe store how much he makes ?

2. He is hunh up om the fact that some leagues give out patches for certain acheivements. Half his posts in this thread are about patches. Wth is up with him talking about a gold painted cow patty would make a cool trophy ?

3. Then He posts about he did the math and a bar tournament that states money added is not really money added because the owner made money off the use of the tables during the tournament . isnt the purpose of operating a pool hall or a bar to make money.? If the bar owner decides to take the profit from the use of the tables and add it to the pot instead of in his pocket where it rightfully belongs is not that added money ?

4. He says he hates leagues and always kumps im every league thread just to remind every one how much he hates them.

Over and over again.

One other thing. I went into detail about how its possible to play all year in apa for around 150.00 grand total....get expenses paid to vegas with the chancd to win 15,000.00 for first place in 8 ball singles and he completely ignored and kept posting about patches.

The dude is like a stuck record about how much a league operator makes and patches.

Well I can do math, think if an operator was shark they would do something more the trinkets. Think the idea of Cow Patty was over you head. That was joke, but you must have sense of humor to laugh.

Guess you can not comprehend, I tried it one night, it was way too disorganized. So I said no thanks.

You love Leage Pal, go for it. You love Taco Bell go for it. I can dislike want I want, as I am not your property to brain wash, be your mental slave, or work for you for free.

FREE WILL.

Yea i have been to vegas but with a team. Had 2 players that were overwhelmed and underperformed ao we only went 4 rounds.

Had 6 round trip tickets paid for. 3 rooms paid for for 4 days and 5 nights.

Girlfriend won 2,000.00 off a penny slot machine after sticking a 20.00 bill in. We rented a car and went to hoover dam one day and the grand canyon the next.

A nice little vacation compliments of apa and the casino.
The 15.000.00 i mentioned is just for one person playing singles. Teams pay out 25 000.00 peeer team.

Sounds like Las Vegas was good to you & girl friend.

Hopefully the League Operators make a ton, having to deal with crying, ungrateful pool players.

Are there some bad examples out there, sure. Just like there are bad examples in every profession. That doesn't make them all bad...

Enjoy what you like. Stop hating on what others enjoy. Stop trying to make them as miserable as you are...

Well as I said I personally got more enjoyment out of Bar Tournments. But had the League expierence been positive, might have enjoyed. As I said I hate dis organization.

Now I just play with friends, and try not to drive at night, as I know I do not see well like I did 15 years ago. Think it been 5 - 7 years since I did a Tournment.

think of a bad dining out experience like my buddy had in Las Vegas@ Gordon Ramsey’s The Steak.

Ordered medium rare, got burned extra well☹️, replacement took 45minutes. Nothing good to go back for, where was Chef Ramsey, not cooking. But being fair the other six in party had Wellington Beef.👍👍👍👍

What are the benefits of "winning" or placing 1st or 2nd in the MVP running for APA leagues? I'm just curious...I am playing in my first APA league and I have played in 5 matches, won all 5 with 77% PA and 15.4 PPM and won my 6th match with 18 pts (which hasn't been updated on the APA site yet).

I still need 1 more match to qualify within the white skill level group...Though I think I'll be SL 6, would that move me to the black SL group? (I'd still be first there too...I am happy with how my game has progressed in this short period of time)
I was close to MVP a couple times but never won. Too many responses are minimizing or being jaded about the accomplishment. It's not about a plaque or a patch or anything else. It's just an acknowledgement that you played really well that session and helped out your team. What's wrong with that?

agreed. I also didn't level up to 6 unfortunately. Very surprising since I won against my opponent so handily 38-13 (another SL5 player). This past Monday I won 17-3 (cant remember the ball count)... I have finally reached the 7 matches necessary for the MVP chart. I'd be in 1st regardless of the grouping, but I am very happy with how I have been playing lately
