Am going to vegas in may. My age allows me to play in the 8ball senior event. Is that event tougher than open singles?. Have heard all the old legends play in the seniors. True or not.

I'm sure you mean the BCAPL Nationals.

There are so many great Senior players its staggering. Then there is the loaded Super Senior event. That's enough to get any old fart motivated.

Good luck

If by "old legends" you mean master/grandmaster players, they should not be eligible to play in the regular seniors. Also, I'm an open player and I seem to encounter quite a few 55+ players in that event ... not all seniors play "senior".

Having said all that, I suspect the seniors might be an easier battle, because "unknown" young future world-beaters will start out in the open bracket. It's hard to get very far on the finals board without encountering them.

When you have an open field of a thousand or more players, anyone who finishes really high is not an "open-skilled" player - they're just someone who hasn't been moved up yet.
