I recently volunteered my services to LordRoss so we can complete the table for the snooker league. Remember that? Well I’ve rolled up the sleeves and got stuck in. Firstly, as a little reminder here is what the league table looked like on the February 6th, the last time LordRoss updated it.
From the 6th to the 29th of February (the deadline date of the tournament) a total of 18 games were registered in the thread. Unfortunately, 4 of these games didn’t have any scores posted, only who won and by how many frames. As such, I’ve taken away the column “Total Points” from my table. So without further ado here is the “1st final table” for the 29th February deadline date…
Renegade and QW ended up on the same points and had the same amount of loses. Amazingly they both won the same amount of frames (35) but as Renegade only lost 12 frames to QW’s 15 I placed him in 2nd place. Loony is above Jury because he lost fewer games.
After that we had passed the deadline date there was still 30 (!) games to be played. I won’t post them just yet but instead quote LordRoss on how points will be awarded in the remaining games.
The rule I intend to go by is as follows:
When the deadline passes all remaining matches shall have a default 147 win to the person who has played the most amount of games.
So instead of removing those players from the league alongside their results, I shall complete all their matches by default
If Pacman has played 10 and Funky played 7 and the deadline has passed. Then Pacman gets the win.
To ensure you don’t lose by default then make sure to play as many matches or most preferably play them all before the deadline passes.
If two people both haven’t finished the league and have played the same amount of games and are due to play against each other, the win goes to the person who showed the most effort to play the said game.
So here is the list of games that were unfinished and who won the games (bold) by the default mentioned above.
Ross v Loony
funky v homer
funky v Pacman
Litt v Ross
Litt v funky
Litt v QW
Litt v homer
Litt v Pacman
Litt v afccarl
QW v afccarl
Pacman v funky
Pacman v Litt
Loony v Ross
Loony v funky
Loony v Litt
Loony v homer
Loony v pudds
pudds v afccarl
Rene v funky
Rene v afccarl
afccarl v funky
afccarl v Litt
afccarl v QW
afccarl v Pacman
afccarl v Loony
afccarl v pudds
afccarl v Rene
afccarl v Jury
Jury v funky
Jury v afccarl
every person highlighted won 2-0 in frames. Luckily there were no games where those involved had played the same amount of times, so we didn’t have to award a game to “the person who showed the most effort to play the said game.”
As such, from the default games above, the new and final, final table is below. Enjoy!

didnt agree with awarding points for games that were not finished in time in the first place
it should have just been null and void as it doesnt show a true reflection of the league standings for games actually played
next time i wont be so quick to play my games and maybe get lucky
But but... I wasn't last !
Thanks for finally finishing it up EG! And congrats to all those who finished their games, congrats to QW for winning, and congrats to Pudds, for also winning....and to everyone else for just being great company thoughout

Thanks very much englishgolfer. You sir are a scholar and a gentleman! A very fine fellow indeed.
In regards to the league, congratulations Pudds!
It's been a strange long ride this season even to the point that it was never officially completed until now. Deadlines came and went without games even being mentioned.
The Hustle King Snooker Championship has been my first good go at a league based event and from it I have learnt a great deal in what makes it a success and where it fails. So I apologise for all being guinea pigs but I tried to recover it. The first season seemed to of been more easy flowing then this one.
It was still fun though, and regardless of the eventual winner some special mentions have got to go to the likes of Pacman for turning up and playing despite knowing his level of skill doesn't quite match some others in the league. It's hard to stay motivated and continue to enjoy oneself when you lose, so a great fighting spirit Pacman possesses.
Well done to Jury as well for trying to pick up a game and join in the event as much as possible despite not being fluent in English or even the game of Snooker itself.
The passion of the game helps motivate others in the league and we certainly have passionate Hustle Kings fans in this league.
Being brutal though, only two of you actually finished the games before the new year and even before the extension of the deadline. That was englishgolfer and Mcneilio.
Mcneilio put in a huge effort to get his games played on time before the deadline and I feel it would be good to recognise him for it rather than putting everyone into the draw.
So either englishgolfer or Mcneilio can get the PSN voucher. I think I can recall englishgolfer offering to stand aside but if not, I will put you both in the draw and pick at random.
It's a shame a lot of us perhaps including myself fell behind and lost any mojo needed to continue this league but I do hope we can make ammends by pulling off an amazing Pool tournament soon which you are all welcome to join.
