Krome Tournament Handicaps
These handicaps are for Krome Tournaments only. It is mainly so players looking to find partners in the scotch doubles and triples tournaments can look for specific handicaps. Some handicaps are players just starting out and have not played here before, some are new and have not played enough to be established yet. Handicaps are assigned by taking all the information we can concerning league handicaps and tournament play. Please don’t try to judge someones handicap because of how they played one day. Everyone has their good and bad days, a handicap is supposed to be an average of all that. Some players play completely different in tournaments than in league. If you feel someone’s handicap is not correct, please contact us by private message or in person. We will be happy to listen and consider all your opinions and input as long as it is done in a professional manner. Before you complain about someone that beat you, take a day and think about what you could have done better; almost anyone can look good when the table is a cake walk. Lower players can also look more skilled when playing a scotch format with a higher player, after all it is the higher players job to leave them either straight in, or leave them an angle on the shot to get leave on the next ball. Many handicap 3’s can look like a 4 or even a 5 given the right partner and the pool gods being on their side! No matter what, there will always be players that don’t agree with the handicaps. There is no perfect system and the balls roll different every day. If after you have stated your case and presented your opinion in a professional manner and you still feel you don’t have a chance because of yours or another players handicap, then we will just have to agree to disagree and the choice is always yours to decide whether to play or not in any given tournament. We understand other establishments may have players handicapped different, that is their right and they have their own system for determining those handicaps. Players can be handicapped correctly and still never cash in a tournament, still doesn’t mean they are not handicapped correctly. Being able to have handicaps is a privilege, otherwise you would not ever get the chance to cash or win, because only the players that have practiced and put in the hours will come out on top. So take if for what it is, some kind of a system that gives the average person that doesn’t make pool their life, a chance to have fun and hopefully compete against like players.
If a player goes up or down in a league, please feel free to let us know so we can decide whether we need to adjust that players tournament handicap.
Players are listed in alphabetical order by first name. We will do our best to keep this updated as necessary. There are many more players to be listed, we just had to start somewhere to establish the data base, so don’t panic if your name isn’t on the list; just give us a shout and we will add you to the database.
A big THANK YOU to all the players that choose to play at Krome and make our tournaments successful!
Krome reserves the right to either CHANGE a handicap during a tournament or DISQUALIFY someone if we find out that their handicap in league has changed and they did not make us aware. Being up front and honest is the best policy. We can then make a decision on what your handicap needs to be here, instead of hearing from other players that someone is playing at a handicap they shouldn’t be.
