8-Ball Break & Run Derby Friday, August 22nd @ 7:00pm

2nd Place - Steve Blackburn - $30 cash + $2 off his weekly dues!
1st Place - Paul Sanborn - $45 cash + $3 off his weekly dues!
3rd Place - Eric Nordstrom - $15 cash + $1 off his weekly dues!

Players compete by breaking & running out the table!  Every player racks their own.  You get one freebie shot on the break meaning you don't have to make one on the break to continue shooting.  However, if you scratch your turn is over with 0. An 8-ball break counts as 20 points.  After that every ball you make counts as a point.  It doesn't matter what you shoot at - be it solids or stripes - as long as the 8-ball is the last ball.  Once you successfully make the 8 you'll re-rack the balls and break.  You MUST make a ball on this break to continue shooting.  Once you miss a shot your turn is over.  

8-Ball Break Bonus: If you hit (2) 8-ball breaks and NOT scratch in the current season you get double points in the opening round!  Your 3rd & subsequent 8-ball breaks are good for a free do-over.  Every player gets a free do-over in the opening round only. 

Points add up from round to round.  The bottom third of the field is eliminated after the 1st round, the bottom half after the 2nd round.  After round 3 only top 3 Advance.  Points start fresh at 0 in Round 4, the final round.

Skip Bales scores 42 points in the opening round!

Robert Berry sets record with 45 points in the 2nd round!

Eugene Hemphill sets record with 40 points in the 3rd round!  

High score - Eugene Hemphill - 74 points - Spring 2013

The top three players each will receive a credit towards their next season’s dues. 1st Place receives 50% of the pot+$3 off their weekly dues, 2nd receives 35% of the pot and $2 off their dues and 3rd Place gets 15% of the pot and a $1 off!
