Rack Difference = Frames won v Frames Lost
(example - 6-2 win + 5-3 loss = 9 frames won, 7 frames lost. FD +2) what does this mean?

6-2 + 5-3= 11 frames won in my book lol..you added it a different way of course, so...?


Yes you need to go back to school
well common math, 6 +5 is eleven, and 2+3 is 5 not 7...i see FD is frame difference (more than likely) so u are giving and taking 2 points..not sure why...why not leave it how it is lol.

add 2 points to the losses, and take 2 from the wins? O_o

can anybody explain this?
Seems tappy wont


Jesus sniper in a 5-3 loss you have only won 3 frames not 5...quite simple really

You win 1 game 6-2
You lose your second game against an entirely different opponent from your group 5-3

You have won 9 frames and lost 7 giving you a frame difference of +2

Change example you LOSE - 12-8 = You have only won 8 frames,

If you WIN - 12-8 = You have won 12 frames.

I think you are only seeing the integers and not reading the words with the example.

See to me a game, is 1 game of 8us for example 1-0 i win.

a match, is the whole 8 games vs whoever...that is why i get mixed up..

When fixtures come out, you are "matched up" to play somebody as all players are..

you arent gamed to play them lol

RESERVE LIST

If anyone wants to put their name down as a reserve in all probability the__priest will already be in the tournament proper and it is looking like there may be another UK space to fill.
Things may arise with other players too so first come, first served.
The only criteria is to be registered with an FCL clan for the starting season and only posts by yourselves will be accepted.

8 ball

9 ball

8 UK

I think I answered why the scores aren't being combined to your satisfaction (in fact you liked the idea)
Also answered why it was being trialled in the semis too so don't see the new question i have to answer tbh


Because your example of football was flawed. No matter how many games teams play in each round the team that scores the most goals advances.

What you have here is two different scoring concepts. In the Quarter Finals, the player that scores most advances, in the Semi-Final it changes to something different - the player winning most 'legs' advances, and then in the Final it changes back to the original concept.

It's like a Tennis competition where the Quarter Final is first to win x number of games, the Semi-Finals become first to win x number of sets and the Final is back to the first to win x number of games.

Now you can come up with whatever format you want but you have to accept that, where there is that apparent inconsistency and off-piste approach, you are going to get at the very least politely questioned about it.

And I said I was not opposed to the concept of the scoring. It's having two different concepts in the same competition that is your (potential) issue in selling it with no arguments.

The football analogy was just that a lot of tournaments only have 2 legs in the semi-finals but I do see your point.
So for continuity I will change the quarter-finals to match the semi-finals.
The final should remain a one off match though I feel

Why split it over two. If you I get there I will be doing the two games in on sitting so why not just do it 'best of' as works so well in professional pool/ snooker games. Its not a fluke they ended up with that format.

Agree totally, make it the best of whatever and get the game played.

You may want to play both legs 1 after the other, your opponent may not if you are the better player then you will win overall.
Just a different spin that hasn't been done before that I would like to try and believe strongly will be a success

correct answer is actually 4x4 =16 + 4 = 20 x 4 = 80+4-4=80 x 4 = 360. worked out in order as there are no brackets. simple stuff guys
