Players changing teams

The rules regarding players changing teams have not changed and apply to 8-ball, 9-ball and 10-ball leagues. League approval must be sought by the player PRIOR to changing teams. There is no requirement for league approval to add a player who has not previously played in that league this year.  This does not apply to friendlies which may be open to all, but any game in which the score counts in the standings.

Strikers Dropped

Strikers has dropped out of the Bangkok Pool League. Teams scheduled to play them will get a forfeit win.
An updated schedule has been posted with games in green designating friendly matches that will not count in the standings (placing the team that had a day off vs the team scheduled to play Strikers).

Support the Bangkok Team bringing back the trophy!

The Bangkok Pool League launched this new website about a month ago, and we are now selling advertising (only 4 ads will appear in the footer of each page and will be on rotation so that there is no preference to any given advertiser). The income from the advertisements will be used to support our sending a team to Jakarta for the 5th Asia Expat Pool Challenge. The cost for an ad is just 2,000 baht a month. If you would like to advertise on this site and support the Bangkok team in their effort to bring back the AEPC trophy for the 5th time, please contact us here.

Albums Added

We’ve added a bunch of albums to the website. Want to see some of the people who played in the Bangkok Pool League in the past? Take a look! Anyone who has any photos from the Pool League over the years that they would like to add to our collection, we’d love to have them!

Ten-Ball Handicaps Updated

The Ten Ball handicaps have been updated. Please note that updates are based on winning percentage over more than one week. Handicaps that have been changed are in blue.
The criteria for this adjustment was –
Winning less than 30% – down one.
Winning 70% or more – up one.
Winning 100% over multiple weeks – up two.

A few people did not have their handicaps adjusted by this formula – they either played just one week (so inadequate information) or declined the downward adjustment (Al Lock).

Standings Updates

Standings in 8-ball, 9-ball and 10-ball are entered.

We are still missing results, please look and let us know any results that are missing.

In 10-ball, we are also missing score-sheets. The handicap page has been updated with the individual wins and losses, but handicaps have not been adjusted yet.  Adjustments of handicaps will be made next weekend. Any score-sheets not received by then, adjustments will be made based on assumptions that players are winning those games.

Scoresheets

We are getting some interesting scoresheets turned in. Some have been beer or water soaked and the information is illegible. A lot of them don’t have team names entered (do not assume we will recognize which team it is by players’ names – there is a box for team names – please use it!).

But the best was one turned in for SMN Shooters vs. Hustlers A in which the final four game results weren’t entered, so we don’t actually have a result in winner or loser!!
Scoresheet we have has Shooters ahead 11 – 9.

Standings, Scores and 10-ball handicap

The standings sheets for 8-ball, 9-ball and 10-ball have all been updated with the information currently in our hands (Al and Mark). Mark is doing the 8-ball and 9-ball standings and Al is taking care of the 10-ball. We were going to go back to tracking individual stats in the 8-ball league, but some of the score sheets have been turned in in such poor condition that players names are not legible.

The 10-ball handicap list is updated, adding some players who weren’t on the list before. In addition, the players that have played also show their winning percentage. That winning percentage is the primary determining factor on handicap adjustment as the season progresses.  Steve Rea suggested that the list by sorted by handicap within each team and the team name be put in bold to make it easier for everyone to find and to figure team handicaps. That has been done (thank you very much for the suggestion, Steve!).

As you can see from the information on each standings page, we are missing information. It is very easy to send scores in. Just take a photo of your score sheet and send it to Al via Line, Facebook or email. For 9-ball, we simply need the final score. For 10-ball, it is very important that all players are recorded and the wins and losses noted.
