"man up"? Please explain the logic behind that. Feel free to pm me.
Go look at RunoutJJ's comments in the other APA thread. Looks like I'm right.
but again like everything there is a bad side.. handy cap will not develop good players in a league where you can't have people can't get better or your team splits up.
SBE? Planning on going all 4 days.
That would be sweet, but no. Will be in nyc for a bit. Hoping to find a bar with tables at least, preferably near the southern half of central park, like 56th-86th. I'd like to check out one of the halls, though I'll have to convince others. Any pool bars around there?
There's Eastside on 86th and 3rd, but you'll actually be about 20 minutes away from Steinway by train. Finnegan does the weekly tournaments on Monday (handicapped) and Wednesday (non-handicapped), Then there's Society and Amsterdam which are closer to the downtown/Union Square area. It's pretty easy to get around by train from where you'll be, and everything is nearby. Just avoid rush hour. If you're looking for more of a bar atmosphere, I think there's a bunch on 9th ave, not sure which ones have tables. You could also try Break Billiards, a few blocks away from Steinway. That place is more of a bar with 9 foot tables.
Well you have 4 sessions a year so there's plenty of chances to get a trophy lol the patches are silly. I mean how many 9 on the break patches do you need? I'm a 9 and you should see how excited people get when they beat me because they get an "I beat a 9 patch" lol
I enjoy apa 9 ball but it is what it is...it's made for the casual to middle skill level players and they eat that stuff up I guess.
