Seven up

Little late, but last week I got bumped up to a 7. Smashed my opponent 5-0 in a 5/3 race. I probably caught him on an off day. Also had a rackless night since I won the lag and the winner breaks. Apparently though, you have to be a 4 or lower to qualify for a special 'rackless night' patch. Oh well.

The 4-6-3

Sounds like a baseball double play, but those have been my handicaps each week now. So this last week I played against a 7, which made it a 6-2 race where I had to win 2. Yeah, I like my odds against anybody with that matchup. I ended up winning 2-1. My opponent missed a couple 8 balls, so maybe it shouldn't have been over so quick. We also played on bar boxes, which made it a little more interesting. Wonder what my handicap will be next week?

Check out this pool playing robot. Could be my next competitor.

League last week

Played my first match as an APA SL6 last week against an opponent of the same handicap. I got smoked 5-1. I managed to scratch in the first few games, which essentially gave them away. He gave me one back scratching when I only had one object ball left. I had a chance to get a second game but missed a difficult shot on the 8, hanging it in the pocket for him to finish off.
