8-Ball Break & Run Derby – Open to any AZPL Alumni!

 Friday, August 22nd @ 7:00pm

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

Open to ANY team that is NOT already playing on Sunday in the Championships.  Even if you got eliminated on Friday you can play!  And even if you made it but your teammates couldn't...  

YOU CAN PLAY!!  

How's that you ask?  If you were left single handed or your team was short handed in the Championships I'll let you bring a player or two (from within the league of course) to make a team or join an eliminated existing team in the Sunday Second Chance Tournament.  You can be on as many teams in this tournament as you were on during the season but you must pay an entry for each.  Meaning if you play on 3 different nights you can be on 3 different teams in the 2nd Chance but you could end up playing against your other team and will shoot against them in this event.  AZPL Alumni may play in this event but only 1 per team. Tables will be open!  Prize money will be split between the top 2 teams 65/35!!  

*If you play on more than one team and one of those teams are still playing in the Championships you can only play with your other team in the 2nd Chance.  You cannot join another team.

Entry is $30 per team!  Sign up at 9am, starts at 10am.
