Pool Stats Pro v1.2.0

We’ve changed some colors, improved the Clutch Shooting Percentage algorithm and added a 3-month breakout in the stats section. This enhancement will better allow users to analyze their pool games over time by viewing their stats collected with the app in 3-month blocks.

Clutch Shooting Percent: Formal White Paper

http://poolst.at/pdf2 Abstract The aim of this paper is to describe and list a new Pool Stats metric, which we call a sabermetric, after the notion that was introduced to the sport of baseball by Bill James. We define ‘clutch’ to mean a player’s performance in executing the shots needed to seal a victory throughout the […]

Shot Aptitude White Paper

Today we are announcing the formal release of our mathematical analysis and description of Shot Aptitude, a new pool game sabermetric. You’ll find the formal paper at the link below: http://poolst.at/pdf1

A Word on Shot Aptitude

There has been minor controversy surrounding this stat. Mainly gauging a player’s ability with regards to time. It is true that while time is a major factor in these equations, it’s not the only factor at hand. More goes into these equations than simply time. Time is a weight, like any other measure. Also, since […]

It takes in the factors of, time to shoot, shot difficulty, miss or made or foul or defense. The main contributor to this metric is […]

Plus Minus: A Pool Stat

Plus / Minus (+/-): A pool game metric

http://poolst.at/pm We are announcing the calculation of a new pool metric: Plus / Minus (+/-). A similar metric exists in the game of hockey where a player gets a +1 whenever their team scores while that player is on the ice; and receives a -1 whenever the opponent team scores while that player is on […]

Clutch Shooting Percentage (CSP)

http://poolst.at/csp We are happy to announce, after many hours of mathematical analysis, our formula for a new stat, considered a sabermetric, in the cue sports world: Clutch Shooting Percentage (CSP). This stat measures the effectiveness for a player under adversity, i.e., their ability to perform in a game/match when it matters most. A similar metric […]

Update: DSR (Defensive Success Rate)

http://poolst.at/dsr We have made a small adjustment to the calculation of DSR (Defensive Success Rate). In the following press release, you’ll see that we have added a new variable to account for the missed shots by an opponent after a player plays safe. The missed shots is weighted as to not give it the full […]

DSR (Defensive Success Rate)

http://poolst.at/d We’ve devised a new sabermetric for pool. DSR measures a player’s ability to play safes effectively. To gain an understanding of the metric, we’ve published the formula. In easier terms, a DSR > 50 is highly effective. A DSR > 100 is extremely effectively, and illustrates that you force more turnovers, via fouls, than […]
