mikey frost I really get a kick out of reading this thread and the old thread about Iowa. If I wasnt in the military I would love to get up there in the action. Maybe I could be a sub for one of your guys. I wish. Anyways keep posting about whats going on up there. My days at work have been much more enjoyable reading your posts.

Thanks

I think the most interesting part would be deciding who plays what game...what would the format be for that? There are so many different ways you could do it, and the outcome could be influenced a great deal by the individual matchups.


You could do it like a team match.

Flip a coin, winning team either throws a player, or passes.
Then rotate turns for 2, 3, 4 and 5th players.

Have an idea of what order the games are going to be, and base your player order on that. So game one will be 8 ball on a bar table, whos team #1's player, then who is team #2's player. Game two will be 1pkt who is team #2's player, and who is team #1's player.

Although im sure if you said the games are gonna be like i said, then your team would already know whos playing what game.

"Plays" would imply that I play the game regularly, which I don't. If I am going to gamble, I would prefer to play a game that I am familiar with...9 ball, 10 ball or one pocket.

So, who are your five? Jason C., Jamie F., Jon B., Wes, Vic? Justin maybe?

I saw Rice the other day at lunch and chatted with him for a bit...not sure if he has been playing much at all but he would probably be a stronger fit then Vic and maybe Justin depending on the game.

I dont think i said i have a *team*

I was under the impression that this "Team Match" was something that you and Mikey came up with. Do you know who the other five were going to be?

And as far as our lineup, it isn't really as straight forward as it seems. There are a number of different strategies that could be used. It would definitely be interesting.

The more I talk about it and think about it the more I am thinking about playing this summer...

You think Geoff plays better then justin or victor ? Maybe i read that wrong.

Yes you did...i asked if he has been playing much lately because depending on the game he is just as strong as either IMO assuming he is playing anything like he used to. (Depending on the game)

So, it's something that is probably not going to happen? I was under the impression that someone else had another 5 players lined up, or at least another 5 potential players...

As far as i know there is no other 5 guys to play atm. Doesnt mean it couldnt change in the next week or so. Think frost is trying to stir up some interest.

Come on Bennett of course it will happen, right now is seed planting time, give it a couple days and let me work it. At this point it could literally happen because people just wanna see me lose and I'm OK with that. I'm building the DSM Mosconi Cup team and I'm the coach. I got skills kid.

You're rootin tootin I'm stirring it up. I've figured out we have way more readers than posters in our threads. People will be talking soon enough. I'll give it a week before a proposition comes to me.

Come on mikey you got more gamble in you than anyone I have seen in a long time. Im sure you can get it going. Oh also if rookie still wants to play tell him I need the six and the breaks on a box and we will start with something cheap say 40 a set? :thumbup:
