James Zheng The ranking system works fine for everyone as long as they have played enough games 2022-09-01 11:25:41
James Zheng I fully agree with Neville's view that the handicaps should be locked before the last 3 rounds taking place. 2022-09-01 11:21:19
Graham Douglas If anyone needs any convincing on how well the plus and minus system works. Check out the division 3 table at the end of the season. After a few seasons it has finally ironed out any handicap anomalies and has made for a super competitive competition. Time for all grade to adopt the system. 2022-08-29 13:32:23
Steve Fabian Division 2 Final September 1 at Blacktown Workers Panthers vs Guildford 7pm for 7:30 start. will be live streamed on WDBSA Facebook 2022-08-28 16:30:14
Neville, RH RSL sec/treas Looking at the 2nd div handicaps, then I have some comments to make. I agree that the stats are keeping a good record of players performance, so that's great and that moving players up and down 5 points after wins and losses will brings better players back to the field and give players who are struggling some help too, so looking at players then the ones who go up and down a few points but stay basically around their starting handicap, they were likely on a near correct starting handicap, also if they are between 45% and 65% wins to losses too, but players who are on less than or near 30% wins were likely not on the correct starting handicap, I can see a few like this looking at the stats. So I was at the WD meeting where this method was agreed too, so how is it that players are limited to movement of 20 points from that starting handicap? A player on 30% wins and many losses, was likely on the wrong starting handicap, also players who win many games were also likely on the wrong starting handicap too, so the 30% win players have no hope of ever getting to the handicap they should be on and thereby getting competitive and players who have won many games will never get to the HC they should be on either, in fact 20 points in Billiards is meaningless, so this restriction is an error, this year I have improved more than that myself as have other players. This restriction has to go and not be used in the future also: The RSL B&S Assn method this is based on, does not have any restriction on movement and also locks handicaps in place 3 rounds from the end of the competition, the reason is to stop players from deliberately losing games in these final rounds, after it's clear their team will qualify, so this does get done to bring a personal handicap down before finals are played so, This 20 point movement restriction has to go as it fundamentally stops the very purpose of this handicap method, and In the future handicaps need to be locked in place 3 rounds from the end, to stop any benefit coming from a deliberate loss.

Thomaso Hi, What’s the format in the finals of division 3? Is it 1 vs 2, 3 vs 4 Then winner of 1 vs 2 go straight to the final? Then loser plays Winner of 3 vs 4? 2022-08-08 14:53:05

Thomaso lofaro In C-Grade, can you re-spot the white ball if the opponent fouls? 2022-05-27 10:39:16
Thomaso lofaro I should of started the comp on -15 not -25, that’s what I was meant to say 2022-05-23 17:45:12
Graham Douglas Thomas, you started the year on -25, Your first match you gave a 15 start to your opponent. 1st frame you won by 18, 2nd frame you won by 21. Your handicap went to -30. Your next match you gave 35 start. 1st frame you lost by 14, 2nd frame you won by 23. no change to your handicap. Win percentage of 75%. Where is the joke? Am I missing something? 2022-05-23 14:23:01
Thomaso lofaro What is the highest snooker and billiards handicap in C grade? Can someone please fix my snooker handicap? I should be only on -15, -30 is just a complete joke 2022-05-22 19:12:52
Simon Shek Hi Vincent, thank you for point out this issue, I have applied a fix. Cheers, Simon 2022-05-04 21:41:33
Vincent Deguara Please explain most famous line,when I press Matches takes me to the teams section then I press Rootyhill 2 and I will give example myself and Wayne Brown we played two games each but it is saying we played 4 games each and we both won both games and its showing we are on 50% it doesn't add up hopefully you will have an answer. 2022-05-04 17:59:34

Andrew Stoermer Hi Simon, Sam Delia's score in frame 2 for the snooker is recorded incorrectly. Grant won Frame 2 in the match between Rooty Hill 1 and Marconi 1 in Div 1. Kind regards 2022-04-26 20:54:52
Simon Shek Hi Vincent, your name have been updated 2022-04-23 17:18:12

Steve Fabian YESSS... D1 & D2 Draws (as PDF in Documents) and in the Matches TAB as well...are 100% April 21 Version! Please alert your teams...! & Please; show them how to 'Save to Home Screen' for fast access 2022-04-20 10:41:30
Terry Hunter Great to finally have the draw sorted. However, I would like confirmation of how many games a player is required in either Billiards or Snooker to qualify for finals? 2022-04-20 08:13:50
Andrew Stoermer Thanks Steve and duly noted 2022-04-11 04:34:29
Steve Fabian BTW Simon is not the Match Secretary at WDBSA... He has plenty to do as Secretary - IT Guru at SSSA 2022-04-10 23:15:53
Steve Fabian Anything to do with the comp draw/players/matches/rules/by-laws/covid postponements etc etc etc - PLEASE Send them to Match Secretary FIRST!! I will CC the interested parties if you haven't. 2022-04-10 23:13:40
Steve Fabian I had addressed the RHL 4 table issues in the draw-schedule pdf in the Documents tab... just not updated the matches venue change online.. Silly me! So little time left after triple handling pointless enquiries!!!!! 2022-04-10 23:10:00
Andrew Stoermer Thank you for taking note of my comment Simon. It would be impossible to play the 4 teams at Rooty Hill. I hope that Steve will be able to address this prior to the 21st of April. 2022-04-10 22:39:31
Simon Shek Thanks Neville, make total sense to separate the stat for Snooker and Billiards 2022-04-10 21:29:03
Simon Shek Hi Andrew, I'll get Steve to review the draw and see if the issue can be addressed. 2022-04-10 21:15:48
Simon Shek Hi David, thanks for pointing out the calculation error. A fix have been applied. Andy's name have also been corrected. Billiard have been changed to Billiards. 2022-04-10 21:11:47
RH SEC/TRES So I have seen the the stats for snooker and billiards have been split so that's good to see. N 2022-04-10 12:21:16
Andrew Stoermer Hi Simon, i play for Rooty Hill 1 and it seems that every month starting on April 21 there are 4 teams playing at Rooty Hill. we only have 4 tables and would need 6 tables to play 4 teams. can the draw be updated to only have 1 home team playing on any given night at Rooty Hill? 2022-04-10 12:01:14
Emanuel Youlesanvensan Hi Simon if you can fix the spelling of my name will be great (emanuel St Vincent). Thank you to Steve yesterday and team Guildford for their efforts last night. also this my first time involved in snooker tournaments, will be great if someone can show me the ropes in terms of what needs to be done after each round. 2022-04-08 14:05:22
David McMahon Hi Simon. Great work on the site. Just a couple of small things. Billiard should be Billiards. Seems there may be a calculation error with the Player Points for billiard players. Andy de Haan for example has played only one game but it shows as 4 points. Similarly for Brice & Roger Farebrother. Also Andy de Haan is recorded wrongly as Hahn. 2022-04-08 10:40:24
Steve Fabian DIVISION 3 RESULTS SHEETS UPDATED (AFTER ROUND 1.1) PLEASE download new improved version and throw out the older ones you might have 2022-04-07 11:52:29
Steve Fabian 2022/04/07; Postponed Round 1.1 DIV-1 RH1 vs RH2 due to 2 players Covid+.... 2022-04-07 10:47:34
Simon Shek Hi Neville, Thank you for the feedback and great suggestion! I have amended the system to separate Win rate for Snooker and Billiard (Under Player's detail page) 2022-03-04 20:11:31
Neville Moore Sec TReas RH RSL B&S Club Simon I like the stats data sheet and I have said that to the WD committee, stats are the only useful way to evaluate a players handicap, certainly in the long term stats are a vital tool, however these stats have a flaw, that is many players play both games so the win/loss states get confused when that happens so, any player who plays both Billiards and Snooker needs a stat line for each of them, maybe the simple way to do that is give all players two entry lines, so their stats for each game are not mixed together. N 2022-02-04 21:04:55
Simon Shek Thanks Steve, Snooker and Billiard Net Average have been added to the Player's detail page. 2021-07-20 20:49:21
Steve Fabian July 18:We are up to date except for Div 1-R4M2 (4.2) BWC v MAR2 match and I can't update this till we can get ALL players 'net average score per frame/game' data. Over to you Simon.... ? 2021-07-18 21:30:53
