get 69 – neues Pool Billard Spiel

Geschrieben von Frank Schimrock get69 ist eine neue und innovative Pool Billard Variante, die fairer und spannender für Spieler und Zuschauer ist. In diesem Spiel geht es darum, als Erstes 69 Punkte zu erreichen. Das Rack wird prinzipiell wie ein 10 Ball Rack aufgebaut und ebenso funktioniert die aufsteigend-nummerische Vorgehensweise. Die Rechenarithmetik ist jedoch eine gänzlich andere, denn in get69 zählt jeder Ball. Für die gelbe Nr.1 gibt es einen Punkt, für die blaue Nr.2, dementsprechend zwei Punkte, bis hin zu der gestreiften Nr.10, für den man, wer hätte es vermutet, ganze 10 Punkte bekommt. Das komplette Rack besteht, dem zugrunde liegend aus 55 Punkten, sodass ein Spieler mehr als eines benötigt, um siegreich zu sein. Die anfangs erwähnte Innovation geht aber weit über das Punktesystem hinaus, so hat bspw. jeder Protagonist für seine erste Aktion nach dem Break, die Option eines Freeballs, welcher genau wie jeder andere Ball angesagt werden muss! Sollte dieser Ball verschossen werden, so werden wir Zeuge eines weiteren Features. In get69 hat man nicht nur nach einem Foul Ball in […]

888.com World Cup of Pool 2013 – down to last four

21st September, 888.com World Cup of Pool 2013 Final four set for Sunday show down Quarter Finals Philippines 9-1 Hungary Chinese Taipei 9-3 England A TEAM PHILIPPINES made up of Dennis Orcollo and Lee Vann Corteza ended the 888.com World Cup of Pool journey of Hungary as they hammered them 9-1 to advance to Sunday’s semi-finals where they will face Chinese Taipei who beat England. With victories over Croatia, Singapore and now Hungary, there were probably tougher routes to the final day of the event but Orcollo and Corteza barely put a foot wrong as they broke well, potted well and on the rare occasions that their opponents got to the table, it was to extricate themselves from a snooker. The Hungarians, who qualified for the main event in a qualifying tournament in August, had put out China in the first round and then Russia in round two, will take a lot from their participation in the event and come back stronger next year. “We were a bit lucky off the break,” said Corteza, modestly […]
