I was reading the rules and it says after the first 6 games there will be a redraw for position. Does that mean the same six players are still on the same table with just a new order, or are there going to be new groupings of players ? Thanks, just wondered for if a player draws an original group with three killers is he stuck with them for the entire 4 hours ?
Sounds like a very good idea, good luck with the tournament !
I see the typical rule that if a player fails to make a good hit then the incoming player may pass the shot back to the fouling player. I have been advocating that the incoming player can pass the shot forward and if all players pass then the fouling player must take the shot. I haven't been very successful in getting acceptance of that rule but I believe it is more fair and can possibly prevent collusion.
What would be examples of not 'honest effort'?
Is it hard to explain but easy to recognize?
What penalty happens if it happens? Are there warnings or guidance as to do's and don't's?
Example: ball straight away frozen to rail: Ok to smash it and hope? Not OK to feather it and swing cb 2,3 rails to pocket a hanger in the corner?
I guess if I don't already know...maybe I don't play, or pay, play and learn.
Good luck with tournament...something different.
(Last time I played, at $5/$10 six handed, burned $100 before I had a legit shot...was out b4 the reshuffle.)
Edit: Maybe some of this is covered at player's meeting...and big thanks to Frank, Al, Alex and Kent for an interesting tournament format.
Bill, of course there will situations that will be out of our control but we will cover this topic during the players meeting. In most ring games especially with six players on the table it's most unlikely that you will not get back up to the table in that game so you should try to make something happen now. Personally, I would try to move as many balls as I can and hope that one of them is the money ball.
The tournament is designed for all to have a good time and with a bit of luck even the weaker players have a good chance to advance. Because of the nature of the game even the killer players on any particular table may not advance.
We're hoping that all the players will have the integrity to keep the game honest and abide by the rules. Management and the tournament directors will monitor the tournament as it progresses and will make decisions as needed. Thanks for your input.
