All Ireland 14.1 Pool Championships:
Date: November 13, 2006 09:15AM

Plans are being put together for the first ever All Ireland 14.1 (straight pool) Pool Championships and the full format venues, and entry fees will be posted in this forum in the next day or so.

With Ireland sending teams & players to the European Pool Championships in the men, ladies, wheelchair, and junior categories which sees this 14.1 game take place at all events its very important that Ireland's American 8 & 9 Ball Pool Tour starts to introduce this game to our tour and playing members a.s.a.p. to give everyone a chance to start playing it.

Re: All Ireland 14.1 Pool Championships:

so that would leave 12 players going through??? How would that work in the knock out stage???

Would it not be better if 2 players came through from each group leaving 24 players, then four groups of 6 with 2 players going through to a 8man straight knockout quarter final!!!

p.s Personlly i think that race to 50 points is 2 short and it should be race to 125 all the way as we have plenty off time to play these fixtures!!!

Just a thought

I agree with you on this Paddy on the groups and the races to 50 balls in straight pool, the matches should be at least races to 75 balls, to allow both players an equal chance in their games to run some balls, but on the other hand, a race to 50 is about right because of the round robin format and the fact that the events are still being restricted to 1 day, means that unless the time is really permitting, then a race to 125 all each game, would take too long, but I would only be too happy to play the longer races to 125 because generally the better player comes out on top in a longer race, but either way, I'm very much looking forward to the event and I wish everyone the best of luck smiling smiley

its well for u willie that can play in the event!!!!! its a joke!!!!!! u get so many players wanting to play in our area and at the last minute they pull out which only does the players that are interested harm!!!! I personally think its a disgrace and im not happy because at the end of the day i hope to be playing in the europes at straight pool and i could do with the practice!!!! the players at t.js have let themselves down!!! They have entered and backed out at the last minute!!!! Its unfair and something should be done!!!

I love playing pool and i want to play every event!!!!

THE FORMAT SHOULD BE CHANGED!!!!

if players dont want to play at a venue thats fine but when u have players who actually want to play in the event then they should be allowed to play in whatever venue they want!!!!

You have got a very good point in what you're saying about players turning up as there were 1 or 2, that didn't weigh in on sunday @ Cub 9 either, but they are the ones missing out smiling smiley

EDIT - Due to a change of view, I simply say that if those guys didn't have the mascranis to show up and play, then that's all the better for you Paddy and whoever else qualified from your area, enjoy it buddy smiling smiley

Ronnie, have you selected a venue for the finals of the Straight Pool event yet? smiling smiley

I would like to recommend, that Club 9, be used for the final venue, not only because it's got championship tables, but also because the tables will be properly marked out, cleaned and made ready for the tournament, and also, I'm not sure if Fred Has Qualified, but I hope that he has, as I hope to enjoy competeing with a world champion smiling smiley, but also because Club9, will be easily accesible for Fred to be able to play in the venue also smiling smiley

Also, I will have the proper Scoresheets Printed out for the tournament, for each and every match to be played, etc smiling smiley

Let me know either way smiling smiley

Hi Willie

Thanks for thinking of access for me. No Im afraid u will have to wait for another time to give me a straight pool lesson (Im only a beginner at straight pool not World Champion)!!!! To explain, while yes I have entered the event I have done so purely for straight pool experience and competitive practice even if I qualify my results dont count. I decided this was the fairest decision for a couple of reasons:

(A) I have qualified for the Europeans already and didnt really want to possibly take the opportunity from somebody who could go and gain great experience in this amazing event, and it is an experience its a very hard event playing on tables beside or maybe in the Able Bodied case the SAME TABLE as Ralf or Thomas or Ortmann or one of the other true legends of our sport. I didnt want the slim chance arising of a match either clashing or interfereing with preparations for my Event, in which case I would certainly had pulled out of straight as (hopefully winning?) my event is my priority over there and scratching not only would have looked very bad for Ireland to the EPBF but would have been unfair to others who could play.

(cool smiley Our World Games are confirmed for Chinese Taipei in September and I need to save lots of Annual Leave in work to try go there to defent my Title , and going to play in Straight Pool In Czech Republic would mean I think I would have to go a little earlier and using at least 1 more day off, and Taipei is my priority in this case.

Sorry this is a long reply but felt it best to explain the reasons for my decision to everybody

Regards
Fred

Hi Fred smiling smiley, how are ya buddy? smiling smiley

First, I gotta say that it's great to hear from you again and I very much hope that you had a great Christmas and will have an even better New Year smiling smiley

I understand what you mean and why you decided to not compete in the AISPC with you already having your spot, both in the EC and the for the World Games, which I wholheartedly wish you the very best of luck in, for both events smiling smiley

I hope to to compete with you sometime, but I'm not so sure about giving a lesson in straight pool, but then again you never know smiling smiley lol

Take care buddy and a very Happy New Year to everyone smiling smiley
