ABSA 2012 Open Snooker Pairs

Posted on Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Held at the ACBS Clubrooms :

An historic occasion for this event.  The shield was donated in 1972 by Kenny Joyce.  Forty years later Kenny was playing in the event with Kerry Claydon.

The only change to the format was that the Soopa Snooka Rules were being used.  Section Play did start off being best of 3 frames but was changed after the first round to 1 frame.  The reason for this was that the players who had never played under these rules seemed to become more interested in playing for snookers to try and get ball in hand, rather than potting, and frames were taking far too long.

2012 APA 8-Ball Scotch Pairs

Posted on Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Held at the ACBS Clubrooms

Report by Malcolm Beehre : The 2012 Auckland Pool Assn 8-Ball pairs played under Scotch Pairs rules was certainly a different experience for me and certainly did appear to lengthen the time of matches mainly because after some discussion before the tournament started, it was decided that players could discuss shots after each shot, provided this fitted into the 45 seconds that is allowed for a shot to be played.

A small field of 5 players played in this event.  The games went pretty fast with the new Soopa Snooka rules.  It was crucial if any foul was made, as the white ball can be placed anywhere on the table.

Semi-finals: B Davies bt R O’Connor 2/0, J Paea bt L Ford2/0.

Final : B Davies bt J Paea 2/0.

Held at the ACBS Clubrooms : 20 October 2012

Report by Malcolm Beehre : Played using Soopa Snooka Rules, this was a new experience for the ladies and it was amazing how many times someone had ball in hand anywhere on the table after a fould shot, and either failed to pot a ball or potted a red but failed to get on to a colour.
