It's confusing to have two of these DCC challenge threads...and it doesn't have to be in the members only section - never has been every other year...that said...

If I do make it to the DCC:

I'll take 9-7 and the breaks from Ghost. Consider yourselves challenged.

I'll take 10-6 and the first break from Hacker. Consider yourself challenged.

Cory...your mathematics-handicapping is deranged..:cool:..you're asking me to spot you the same thing as Rob, since 9-7 and the breaks and 10-6 are essentially the same game...:rolleyes:...


Do any 2 people on here want to match up and play partners against Dr. Billy and myself at derby?
Rob...you are invited into the rotating partners game - you're team each game would just have to give up a little weight to the other team...also...

I'll play as my own partner against you and Billy with 9-7 and the breaks

I think my math is fully ranged, not deranged. The break is less of an edge than you suspect, because you surely have a big edge at escaping my break (in those rare cases where an escape is needed). And the break spot only matters every other game, so you're overcounting. But I'll just take 10-7, if that's better.

Derby City Classic.

Derby City Classic.

As the Ghost says "I can't move a lick" but may go to DCC with the New Orleans Crew.

Just wondering what kind of games are there for me at DCC.

I fire at my hole and will take any spots that make the game fair.

You know you ain't gettin' more than 9-7 from me, pal. (10 on top for 20 bucks :D... should take about 12 games if I'm in stroke.) :p

Don't worry Casey, I'll get you some games...

There's a guy named Jesse from Iowa that plays almost as good as you, and some little old Mexican guy-- at least he looks Mexican to me -- named Parsica or somethin' like that. I'll hook you up. :heh

P.S. I really hope you do come. I enjoyed your company in Houston... you aren't near as bad as everybody says. :D

Trying to go from 9-7 and the breaks, to 10-7, to 10-8, in small steps. That is "slippery." Fortunately, your signature carries a good safety warning.
Cory my bro...you're still posting with those crack pipe fumes swirling around you..:heh...cuz you see, since I never was in fantasyland and giddily offering you "9-7 and the breaks", how could I possibly "go" anywhere from there "in small steps"..:rolleyes:...

Nope..I've been chilling here in realityland all along - which is where our 10-8 game also exists...:)

Corey, you blow a few games to me 9/7 and the break and ghost will have to give you the same game and you got him where you want him.

I will play any one pocket.org member who wants to play... I will play anything from 10 to 100 a game...as long as it isn't too far out of line...
Yes Rob that includes you, however I really don't know how much I need as far as weight...

Ghost I think we need to reevaluate the spot you gave me last year... perhaps 10 to 6 would work...

Gentleman John H. agreed to be my partner for a partners matchup... any takers?

SCRZBILL, I have 9 to 7 for life from you...any time you feel ready to play we will...

Steve Booth, we can play late night again like last year...had a blast...just no lessons from masters prior to our play...

Mitch I probably need some weight...yes you can buy me dinner prior to playing, (I figured a response about that is the only weight I would get...roflmao)

Bille

PS does John get to coach me in the partners game? It would only be fair since I can't play that well...:frus

Bille I know how you are playing. I'll need 8-7. I will make a game with anyone else as well. If you see me there we have action. Not looking to break the bank. 10 to 50 a game is fine by me. I really just love playing and the more people from this joint the better!

My line up,
#1, Mitch-hunnert a game
#2 Once I bust Mitch, LS John, rematch from Houston. No more of this $20
#3 I'll play Ghost with me getting 9-7 with a shot clock. He still has the best of it but I plan to bet enough to make his balls shrink like raisins. $5000.+.
#4 Col Billie, You still have 9-7 for life but I'm out for blood at this Derby and I need a ride to the airport so I'm not chancing walking to Stanford Airport.
Once I get going, I'll play day and night, no breaks.
My new Samsonite 30" hard sides suitcase arrived just now, I don't have to worry about my cue getting damaged now.
