Bonus Ball Rules

How Points Are Awarded

First Place: 100 points
Second Place: 80 points
Third Place: 75 points
Fourth Place: 70 points
Fifth Place: 65 points
Sixth Place: 60 points
Seventh Place: 55 points
Eighth Place: 50 points

This system allows any single player to have a bad event and not fall too far behind the point leaders. The round robin event also rewards players with bonus points that add to their point total. Making the final round from third or fourth place is worth 2 bonus points. 3 bonus points will be awarded to a player placing second in the round robin who makes the final round. 4 bonus points will be awarded to the round robin winner. One bonus point will be awarded to: the player who pockets the most bonus balls; the highest-scoring player; and the player with the most "targeted" bonus balls.

The players' point standing will be updated here after the event.
