... for someone just starting to play tournaments? I'm thinking of it to expand my experience, since I won a non-A player 9-ball tournament from the losers' side my first time out. I play mainly 9-ball, but I also play league 8-ball two nights a week.
The choices seem to be 8-ball on bar boxes, maybe some 8 footers, or mainly 9-ball, but some 8-ball, on 9-footers. I'd learn more with the latter having better players on average, usually some A players, but be more likely to win in a bar tournament.
Should I just step up to the bigger leagues, or get some seasoning in the minors first?
