Hello fellow pool players, this has been devised as a place to record the exploits of the Trevs pool teams past and present.
Notifications will be posted to this website, Trevelyan College Pool Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/134370256615857/
Trevelyan College Singles will be starting in due course. The college president will distribute emails nearer the time informing everyone of the tournament.
Filth. Two-shot filth. Cover the bag. Filth. Set up the in-off on the black (aka Tom Brett style). Use five deliberate fouls to push the black onto the top cushion (aka Jimmy style). Take 3mins + per shot (aka James Rentoul style). Flabagance. Canoodling. Crazy dancing between visits (seek out Crazy Dancing Fool aka Chris Pocock, successor to Ben Jarrett, for advice).
Motto (from the Latin): "You don't enjoy it, you endure it."
Unofficial Motto: "Non ludes ut vincas; ludes ut cladem vites."
lit. "You do not play to win, you play to avoid defeat."

 Rules for Snowman Pool
1) Obtain a snowman
2) Put the snowman in a pocket so balls can't go into that pocket
4) Move the snowman one pocket clockwise
5) Play next shot
6) Move snowman again and so on
7) If a double is potted the snowman reverses direction
8) If a plant is potted the snowman skips a pocket
9) If a player pots two balls at once they may move the snowman to a pocket of their choosing.
10) If a player goes in-off on the black they have to sing "Frosty the Snowman"
 Rules for Killer
1) Before the game begins, decide and agree on the order that everyone plays and the number of lives that each person has.
2) The players take it in turn to play one shot each. The primary objective is to pot a ball. The secondary objective is to leave the cue ball in a position which makes the following player's shot tricky.
3) If you miss a pot, you lose a life.
4) If you pot the white, you lose a life.
5) If you pot the black (the so called 'Black Gamble') then you gain a life.
6) Potting more than one ball on a shot results in the gain of a life for each ball after the first (potting three balls would result in the gain of two lives, potting three balls including the black would result in the gain of three lives, etc.)
7) If no ball is potted off the break, then that person takes another shot. If a ball is potted off the break, then the following person has their turn.
8) Potting multiple balls off the break does not result in the gain of a life/lives.
9) If you pot the white off the break, you lose a life.
10) If all balls are potted, re-rack and continue playing, with the next player in line breaking.
11) When a player reaches zero lives, they are permitted one more shot. This shot has to be played one-handed. Dispatching the ball one-handed earns the player a life and they go back to having the option of playing with both hands.
12) If the one-handed attempt fails, then that person is eliminated from the game and the remaining players fight it out.
13) Last person standing wins the game.
