I got talked into being on a team starting this week. Just as a way to get to play a little more.
I can hear the *****ing now about me starting out as a 4, doubt the league operator lets it happen actually.
its a fact that that stuff is gonna happen when a new player " that is not new to pool " joins apa. halfway through my 1st match in apa playing 9 ball vs a 7 the opposing team captain was on the phone to the lo complaining about my handicap. i could not help but hear her heated conversation as i was winning the match pretty handily as a 3 . needless to say i was a 4 the next match.
our area started all males as a 4 in 8 ball and a 3 in 9 ball. females started as a 3/2 now its 4/4 for males and 3/3 for females.
2 years later this same captain had a new player join her team. i knew him quite well from money league and told her that night before he played that he was not a 4 and should be at least a 6 if not a 7. she replied she did not know how he played . i said ...well i am not gonna call the lo half way through the match complaining about him like you did me. next week he was a 7 and i went up and said....i told you so.
