Welcome to the MPA Pool players web Site.

2022 - 2023 Season
Upcoming Tournaments

As most of you have noticed we have been having problems with our SMS match notitications lately. So we have changed SMS providers, which will mean that the MPA match noticiations will now come from 1-206-672-7665 (1-206-MPAPOOL) and act like real SMS messages. So make sure you put that number as MPAPOOL in your contact list before your next tournament.

Changes for the 2021-2022 Season

Hello Everyone, and WELCOME to the 2021-2022 MPA Pool Season! We have some exciting new changes taking effect this year, and we are implementing these changes at our upcoming tournaments. The largest move we've made is with our rankings, and placing our players according to FargoRate. In an effort to make our rankings similar to neighboring states, we will be using the following FargoRate numbers for our respective divisions:

Rating Fargo Rate M8 Rating Comment
Pro > 730 n/a  
Master > 625 > 130  
AA 576-625 101-130  
A 526-575 81-100  
B 476-525 66-80  
C 426-475 < 66 Really < 476
D < 426 < 50 Selected tournaments only

For those players on our database already, we will be making the adjustment to reflect their division raking based on their current FargoRate. For other players coming into our system, we will place them according to their FargoRate. If the incoming player does not have a FargoRate, we will need some documentation of performance from league play, or that player will get defaulted into the "A" Division, unless there is some kind of "known ability" of that person that would put them elsewhere. We will not allow new players to come and "rob" our lower divisions. Our concern is with protecting the divisions for the loyal MPA membership.

For most of our smaller events, we will be restricting the field sizes of our divisions. We are doing this so we can get the event done by closing time (or shortly after), and so the tournament continues to run smoothly without long wait times between matches. Most of our smaller events will be restricted to the first PAID 32 players per division (128 players total). Players will be able to register and pay online. Registering online and not paying for your entry will NOT guarantee you a spot, and you will be replaced with a paid player if one registers.

Larger events, like the Upper Midwest Shootout, and casino tournaments, will still have larger fields. But we will post our field sizes at other events.

The MPA currently has over 23,000 players in the database with over 5,200 playing at least one event since 2018, and we proudly host over $100,000 annually in added money tournaments. I know the COVID put a slow-down on our efforts, but now that we're back, we're looking to build more tournaments, and look forward to making your pool tournament experiences pleasurable!

We'll be seeing you at some upcoming events!!!


Online Registration for the 2021-2022 season!

If you are trying to register for a Tournament/Event you will need to have a UserID and Password for the MPA site in order to register online. If you do not have one try using your google or Facebook account.

Having trouble getting logged on? Send me an Email.It only takes a minute to set you up if you do not have a userid. You must be in our database to get a userid, so if your aren't in our database click the "Join MPA" on the tool bar and answer the questions, shouldn't take more than 2 minutes of your time. That will get you in our database and also setup your UserID and Password. If you don't know if you are already in, click on the "Player Lists" link and look yourself up.

Note that you will not see the registration links until you are logged on.


MPA Sanctioned Teams can qualify for the ACS Nationals!

As many of you may know, we have been looking at doing a tournament in Vegas.

But instead of doing our own MPA event, we talked to John Lewis from the ACS and have worked out an arrangement that will allow all MPA League sanctioned players to play in the ACS Nationals at the Tropicana on May 15-22, 2021.

You must be sanctioned through your LEAGUE. Individual ($20 MPA Individual Sanctioned) members will not be included, as they must meet the criteria of playing a minimum of 8 weeks of league in order to be eligible for the ACS Nationals.

Our MPA players will now be able to play in all of the events out there (singles, doubles, 9-ball, 8-ball, team, etc), and the Tropicana is a great location for this event. I went out there last May and got my national referee certification at this event, and it's well run, organized, and reasonably priced for the pool player's budget. I hope that many of you will plan on participating in the 2020-2021 ACS Nationals. Plan early - get your rooms and flights reserved, and I hope to see you out there!!!

You can find more information here

Please feel free to field any questions to John Stich, as we are very proud of this relationship we've developed, and think it's a great thing for both the MPA and the ACS.

For more information on the ACS Nationals, go to their website - americancuesports.org Thank you.

When you get a minute.

So if you are an individual or a league operator make sure you understand the sanctioning rules for the upcoming by reading the 2019-2021 League Operators Manual .

Finally

We would appreciate comments and suggestions on what we have or what content, as a pool player, you would like to see on this site. Send comments to us at MPAPool.
