My APA team18 took first place in Masters last session. They sent a notice that said on February 26th my team qualifies for a "Money Tour". I don't know what this actually means or what the payout structure is. I know that I play APA Masters and you play BCA Masters but can you give me some specifics on 1) what game was played 8 ball and 9 ball? 2) how much money was paid out? Etc. THANKYOUJust finished BCA masters playoffs.
i’m not sure about other places, but for us it’s a pure money league. I made enough to recoup my fees for the year.
Truth be told, it was a little better than I expected to do. I’m pitching a bit out of my league w
Yup. Too many times I leave the table and self-diagnose misses and invariably it’s because I get so caught up in the competition and pressure to make the shot that I have ignored one of the keys to my shot making formula. Rarely do I get up from a miss and am truly baffled on why I missed. I need to take my at-home no pressure success to league play. A teammate and I both have noticed this. Even when we play at each other’s homes we both notice we lose our feeling in the heat of even friendly competition. We’re working on it.Took me a while to realize that almost all of my easy misses were from lack of concentration: taking the shot/position for granted, rushing the shot, raising up, not precise on cueball contact, etc.
9-ball. FargoRates run from mid 500’s to low 700’s. The majority of players probably in the 600-650ish range.My APA team18 took first place in Masters last session.

And good to see you are out and playing after the heart attack.Went to league last night after not picking up a cue for 4 straight weeks. It seems the layoff didn't hurt my game any.
Faced a 7 in 8 ball and lost 5-1 in a 5-3 race. I messed up a few chances to make it 5-2 but cant complain. Its usually a 5-0 beatdown when i play this guy. He is about the strongest 7/9 in league.
I faced anorher 6 in 9 ball in a 46-46 race. I messed up a few runs but played well enough to win 46-32.
All in all not a bad night. I attribute my decent play after 4 weeks off to getting rid of 3 drama queens on my team . was a pretty peaceful night which allowed me to concentrate on my game i believe.

A good team makes the difference for me. I don't mind losing if the folks i am losing with are good people.
There was an 80yr old who's a real decent shot, fell over twice at an apa tournament.
We helped him luckily it was carpet he fell on.
While waiting for them to take him to the hospital I said
well, not a bad way to go I think
You're begging for trouble, but fear not, the most valuable lessons in life usually comes from experience.Here is just one example of why i will not live in Memphis.
My boss text me saturday morming saying his shop was broken into friday night. Now he lives in memphis...not the best neighbor hood but a long way from beimg considered a bad neighbor hood. There have been a couple dozen 6-7 hundred thousamd dollar houses built just a few blocks from his house in the last 2 years.
He works out of his house and his shop is a detached garage 10 feet from his back door.. They stole several thousand dollars worth of tools .
Now i drive a work van home every night. Its loaded with several thousand dollars of tools. Talking about rotary hammers...jack hammers...power saws band saws. ..well you get the idea..Plus on average a few thousand dollars worth of copper fittings and pipe. Half the time i dont lock it up at home and i have never locked my personal truck in rhe 2 yeara i have been here. There have been times i have left a set of keys in my truck when my son wants to come by and borrow it while i am at work
The 45 minute drive to work or pool is well worth the peace and quiet and the security of where i live..
Several years ago...seems like it might habe neen around 15 or so there waa a gentleman who had a heaet attack during a pool tournament. An ambulance was called immediately.
Before i go any farther you gotta realize this is memphis we are talking about.. The man died about a half hour later. On rhe pool room floor while waiting for the ambulance to arrive..
911 was called 2-3 more times during that wait from what i remember.. We have both ciry and private ambulance service in this area and there was a mixup about who served the area whwre the heart attack happened. Sad thing about this situation is some ome cojld habe drove him to the hospital which was less than 10 minutes away..
Thankfully i choose to live way out in the country away from this kind of clusterfvck. The ambulance arrived at my house less than 10 minutes after they were called .
It takes me 45 minutes to drive to the pool hall and 90 percent of that drive is interstate at 70 mph. I dont mind working in memphis or playing pool there but no way will i live there.
