A Typical Night In A Masters Pool League
A coin flip determines which team picks a player to shoot the night's first match. When a player is chosen they are announced to the opposing team. The opposing team then chooses who on their team will shoot against that player and the match is set.
Score keeping is a breeze and involves keeping track of wins only. Three players play per night and each receives a point for every game won in a race to 7, even if they lose the match. For example, the score in the first match might be 7-5, the second match 6-7, and the third match 4-7 for a total of 17 points for one team and 19 for the other.
The team in each division with the most points at the end of the session will be declared the Division Champions, will be awarded trophies and will advance to the Vegas or Bust City Championship.
Teams that finish in 2nd , 3rd, and 4th place in a division will participate with a Wild Card team in Play-Offs at the end of each session. The team that wins the Play-Offs will be declared the Play-Off Winners and will be awarded trophies, and entry into the Vegas or Bust City Championships.
At the Vegas or Bust City Championships, each team receives a pay-out based on the number of sessions won and whether they were Division Champions or Play-Off Winners while also competing for one of 2 PAID trips (hotel and travel) to Las Vegas, NV. In Vegas, approximately 10,000 poolplayers from all over North America compete to win their share of nearly $1.5 million in cash! Its the world's largest pool tournament and the ultimate experience for a poolplayer!
