Welcome to the MPA Pool players web Site.

2023 - 2024 Season

I am only going to support SMS and Telegram as destinations to receive text messages from MPAPool. Meta (FaceBook) support for WhatsApp is useless.

Telegram
Install Telegram on your iPhone or Android. Once you get setup search for MPAPool. Your first command is /start #### (Your Player Number). Once you get your welcome message you receive all MPAPool messages on Telegram. This is the platform I am planning on using going forward. Try it, I hope you like it.

MPA match notifications will come from 1-206-672-7665 (1-206-MPAPOOL). So make sure you put that number in your contact list before your next tournament.

Sanctioning

The 2023-2024 season started on August 1st. Which means it is time to pay your 2023-2024 sanctioning fee.

Your sanction fees get used for tournaments during the season as added money, and Help to pay for some of the ongoing expenses for the Web site.

Changes for the 2023-2024 Season

Hello Everyone, and WELCOME to the 2023-2024 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:

MPA Fargo M8/Fargo M8 M8-2 CSR CSI Comment
Pro > 730 > 700 n/a   > 175    
Master > 625 651-700 > 140 146-175 > 1850 > 1844  
AA 576-625 601-650 116-140 116-145 1801-1850 1781-1843  
A 526-575 551-600 86-115 86-115 1741-1800 1719-1780  
B 476-525 501-550 60-85 56-85 1651-1740 1656-1718  
C 426-475 426-500 < 60 41-55 1576-1650 1594-1655 Really < 476
D < 426 < 426 < 40 < 40 < 1576 < 1593 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 2023-2024 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.

MPA Online registration information.

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 on May 11-18, 2024.

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 2023-2024 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 2019-2024 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.
