I scored my first 20-0 match! I shot great and never gave up a ball in hand, althougth I got several. My break was working very well, made balls, spread them well, and controled the cueball. If I could always play this good~~~~ My opponent only made two balls. I felt sort of sorry for him, but remember being there myself.

Congratulations that is a difficult feat. I played APA 9 ball for about 5 years and only managed one 20 - 0 split, although I did have a few close others. The time I had the 20 - 0 split everything was rolling right for me and I shot very well. I was a 7 and beat a 6, 55 - 0 in 4 innings. I think I went up to an 8 soon after that...lol.

Good job Stick! Those 20-0 matches deserve a patch more than the "on the snap" does.

Congrats Stickman! What exactly does it take to beat someone by this margin? I am unfamiliar with APA 9-ball rules/scoring.

Since it's handicapped, it depends on the skill of the opponent. Stick is a 7...he needs to score 55 points to win his match. 1 point for every ball..2 points for the cheese. If his opponent was a 7, he held his opponent to less than 7 or 8 points through the match. If his opponent was a 3 or 4 skill level, he held them to less than4 or 5 points. I'm not sure of the exact numbers...but 20-0 is a blow-out no matter who you are playing.

A SL5 needs to make 38 before a SL2 makes 19. Each ball is worth a point, except the 9, and it is worth 2 points. There are 10 points to a game. The final match points are determined by a chart. The loser's skill level and number of points give you the final match points. 20-0 is almost a shutout. I've had a few 19-1, and 18-2 matches over the years, but this was my first 20-0. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I have yet to play APA 9ball. I just found out yesterday that I was given the league MVP of our last 8ball session. So I'll get a trophy/plaque/etc. I have not picked them up yet but was told as much. Think I was 12-0 in matches with 6 shutouts and a 87% winning percentage. Not sure how I should feel about beating little gray haired old ladies 7-0 when it happened that session. Almost feel bad.....almost. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Yep, All most. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif HaHa

I like APA 9ball because you get credit for all the balls, instead of only the 9.
