HOW TO PLAY?

Welcome to ProPool MatchBoard Events.
This is not Virtual Pool. It’s a Real Pool online Event Managing Program that enables Players to grow an event as big as they can. Traditional elimination formats start with the biggest number they can get like 16, 32, 64, 128 etc. and eliminate to 1 winner and $0. This is a progressive system like Facebook, the lottery or any progressive slot machine, where a few Players join the event roster and start challenging other Players as it grows perpetually until a close date.
All the entry fees and added sponsor prizes show up on the PRIZES $ wheel.
PAYOUTS $ wheel include InsidePool.TV Cues, T-Shirts and other prize gift cards. Random Winners happen at any time during this open qualifying round. Then Venues the host planned events; for example: the Top 32 that have completed their 11 matches. then extract those to play in that event. All the other Players in that MatchBoard Event continue until the next planned event.

ACCURACY VALIDATION:
1) Our first level of validation is a default to rely on the two competing players to ensure their stats are correct.
2) The second level is to have a third party witness, which is ALL the other players in the Venue, tour or area.
3) And the third level if necessary, is to include a Venue or event representative to validate the scores. Note: Every shot is measurable, so a referee can make an accurate determination.

PR Free Shot Handicap is the best way. We advocate a Performance based Rating, which is a basis for handicaps. Ideally, competing players should be grouped by skill divisions, which make it much easier to manage and more fun for the players. Handicaps only add another layer of complexity and confusion to the payers concerns at a tournament. However, handicaps do exist and are common, so it helps to have an accurate rating to work from.
Most ratings and handicaps have steps from one skill level to the next. That’s not reality. A Player skill varies quite a bit from several contributing factors. Using a handicap that is fixed until it is manually changed from one level to another is brutal. Using the 1 – 10 method as an illustration shows the weakness. A) If a high 6 plays a low 6 that Is a substantial skill difference, yet the players play even and B) If a high 5 plays a low 6 it Is a game handicap yet the players are even in skill level. This method only encourages fear and effort to try to stay from a new high number. There is no way to have this system accurate and current. This is a very weak system in these hi-tech days.
The ProPool PR Performance Rating floating system using the 0-1000 span, which gives plenty of fine adjustments to identify a players accurate rating and handicap. There are no skill rating steps to be manipulated, just play your best… Currently we are suggesting 75 points per game. If a 575 plays a 625 they play even. If a 510 player plays a 590 player that Is a one game handicap. Players and directors can determine their own ranges.
