View Full Version : Derby City 14.1 Shoot-Out, 2006

More or less following Earl Strickland's suggestion and with some ideas from Greg Sullivan, there will be a 14.1 shoot-out at the Derby City Classic in Louisville next January. The added money is guaranteed and the event will occur.

The current plan, subject to minor changes, is:

4 days of prelims on six tables. $50 entry for three tries. Each try begins with a 14-ball rack and the 15th ball and the cue ball in hand. Each try ends on a miss or foul. A run of 40 in the prelims gets you one try in the finals, 80 two tries, 120 three tries, and 160 four tries. Only your highest run in the prelims counts, so three runs of 42 only gets you one try in the finals. After 160 in the prelims, you can continue for the record. You may enter the prelims more than once unless you have run 160 or more already.

One or two days of finals. You shoot as many tries (1-4) as you earned with your best run in the prelims. Order will probably be by the number of tries (1's first, 4's last).

Prizes ($10k added, entries 100% returned):

Prelims: 1st $1500, 2nd $1000, 3rd $500

Finals: 1st $2000, 2nd $1500, 3rd $1000, 4th $500.

Bonus: $2000 for high run overall.

The above payouts are with no entries and will be higher according to the final number of entries. With 200 entries, the amounts above are doubled.

Each player can receive only one payout in each of the two phases (prelims and finals), even if he has multiple high runs in one phase. If the highest run occurs in the prelims, that player will get (more than) $3500.

Bob, Thank you for posting that. I would really enjoy watching something like that. Looks like January will be a busy month for me. Louisville for a week, home for a week, South Padre for a week! Whew... guess I'll eat a lot of bologna sandwiches in February! /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif
