Notes to Newer Players


The outcome of every single game played by every player is used to update player ratings that in turn are used to generate fair handicaps for the Sunday night 8-ball tournament. Truly every player has a chance to do well and even win this tournament.

Fargo Billiards wants to encourage new players. While generally a player in a tournament is responsible for knowing the rules to the game, we allow a player in our weekly tournament who is unsure of a rule to consult the tournament director with a rule question before any shot.

Finally, the single most important standard of etiquette for match play is the non shooting player is expected to sit quietly in a chair while his or her opponent is at the table.

Please feel free to consult a Fargo Billiards team member for more information about our tournaments.
