Thanks <hr /></blockquote>To whom are you referring, when you say "they" and "their"?

In case it helps:

If you are speaking of a competition for a title, then you would generally have a "champion" (title-holder) and a "challenger".

In an open field situation, such as a small tournament, then anything like "competitor", "opponent", "hopeful", etc., etc. should fit.

If you are looking for something specific to pool, then you're not going to get much further than the humour that's posted here. . . .then again, you might be able to refer to players in a specific game by their side of the rack--solids or stripes, high- or low-balls, shirts or skins, baldies or mohawks. . . .

Thanks for you "real answer". Have you ever heard of "arrowmen" as a term used??

Nope. You're not a Brit or something are you?
