3-Cushion Billiard Tour “Shot-Contest” in Memphis at The Rack
3-Cushion Billiard Tour “Shot-Contest”
The Rack in Memphis,Tn held there 4th Shot Contest with 6 pool players that signed in and willing to test their skills at the game of 3-Cushion Billiards. As the event date was set for Sunday at 1:00pm, on November 4th 2012, players had a full month to practice the shots. Entry Fee was only $15, plus Jerry Ramey owner of The Rack also included in a free lunch for the players. Paul Frankel tournament director went over all the rules before the start of the “Shot Contest” and thanked all contestants for accepting the CHALLENGE and then went on to explain to the players the format.
A small recap of how the 3-Cushion Billiard Shot Contest works.
FORMAT: Players will shoot only 8 diagram shots. Each player will shoot each of the 8 shots 3 times (24 shots total). Each shot is worth 2 points (48 pts max) and the total number of points wins. Three small round dots (stick-ons) are placed on the table, which represents the exact placement of the diagrammed shots. All players will have the same shot and same placement of the 3 balls. Then the dots will be removed and replaced for the next shot selection.
Special Note: After each shot a player has a straight rail carom shot (no rails required) as the balls come to rest. If they make it, it will be worth 1 point added to their previous scores. This means that the maximum possible score will be 72 points if they made every shot.
