I understand Allen Hopkins devised a handicapping system, but I'm not sure how it works. I've been told that you spot break the rack and sink the first 10 balls in any order and the last 5 from lowest to highest. The first 10 are each worth one point each and the last five are worth two points each. The game ends when you miss and then total your points and re-rack to start again. You do this for a number of racks and get an average. Is there some kind of chart that shows what level you are based on the average?
Thanks,
Steve

Steve check the posts on this board, CCB Members Q-skill Player Ratings. More info is in those threads, with a rating. It's here on the front page.

I don't know who invented it, but what you describe sounds a lot like Playpool.Com's FARGO. Try http://www.playpool.com/rsbasp/fargo/ for more info.
