Pro/Am and Bring Tournaments on Nov 20

We’re running two events on November 20th at California Billiards, with $100 added to the pot thanks to Marvelous Marv Puha. Marv is doing what he can to support our up and coming rookie players.

For Pro Am Doubles, Marv is contributing $50 in prize money. For the Shake-n-Bake, the top rookie finishers will split $50 in cash.

 

Pro Am Doubles

Mixed skill level teams compete. Anything could happen, and playing as an effective team is key to victory.

We’re using the Bayfoos Handicaps to keep things balanced: the handicap rule is Max 5: any two players with handicaps that add up to at most 5 can play together.

Examples: a handicap 5 player (a master) can play with a handicap 0 player (a beginner).

A handicap 4 player (pro) can play with handicap 0 or 1.

Handicap 3 players can play with handicap 0, 1, or 2.

Marv has contributed $50 to the pot, and so far at least 4 pros and masters have signed up to play. This is going to be a great event. Get partnered up soon.

Event starts at 3 pm. Format is double elimination. Entry fees are $10 per player, plus $50 added.

 

Shake-n-Bake

Bring a partner if you’ve got one, draw a partner if you don’t! We’re using the traditional Bayfoos Shake-n-Bake system.

Draw side players: beginners pay $5 entry, all others $10.

Bring side players: beginners pay $5, handicap 1-2 pay $10, handicap 3+ pay $15.

Event starts at 7 pm. 100% payout, plus $50 to the top rookie finishers in the event.

 

Table Fees

We’ll charge a $5 table fee for the day, and have the tables open. Tables will open for practice by 2 pm.

RSVP on Facebook.

Casino Night!

OK, time for some fun. Tomorrow is Casino Night: we’re spicing up our usual Monster DYP with $50 added to the pot and a little bit of extra fun.

At the beginning of each match, each table will be dealt 10 playing cards face down. Before each ball, the players flip a card.

If it’s a normal card: you play the ball.

If it’s a card marked as a $1 or $2 money ball: whoever scores that ball keeps the card, and can trade it for cash.

And if it’s a Goalie $2 card: if a goalie scores the ball, they keep the card and can trade it for cash. If one of the forwards scores, the card is worth nothing. Play accordingly.

Handicap Monster DYP

We run a wide variety of Monster Draw tournament formats, because they are light-hearted and easy to run. We vary the formats so that players can get practice in singles and doubles. Sometimes we play more rounds with a race-to-seven for each match, other times we play fewer rounds with more intense best 2/3 matches.

We’re going to try out something new in the mix: a Handicap Monster DYP. Players are handicapped based on local points. In each round of the DYP, new teams are assigned. The team handicap is the sum of the player handicaps from the local points. For example, a team where one player has 1400 points (handicap 1) and the other player has 2200 points (handicap 3) has a total handicap of 4.

When two teams play each other, they compare the handicaps to figure out how many points each team needs to score. The team with the lower handicap always needs to score 7 points to win. The team with the higher handicap needs to score 7 + the difference between the handicaps, up to a maximum of 10 points.

Examples:

Team A has a handicap of 3, and Team B has a handicap of 5. Team A needs 7 to win, and Team B needs 9 to win.

Team A has a handicap of 1, and Team B has a handicap of 1. Both teams need to score 7 to win.

Team A has a handicap of 2, and Team B has a handicap of 7. Team A needs to score 7 to win, and Team B needs to score 10. Even though the handicap difference is 5 points, the most any team needs to win is 10 points total.

We’ll play rounds like this from 8-10pm, and then start doubles playoffs for the top 8 players. The matches in the playoffs will use the same handicap system as the seeding rounds. Each playoff match is one game, where teams need to score from 7-10 points depending on their handicap.

You can check your handicaps in the Points Book. If you’re a new player, your handicap will start at 0. Once you start winning matches your points will increase, and your handicap too.
