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 game with more weight given to each subsequent shot. Similarly, a player’s match ‘clutch’ performance is the average performance throughout each game. That is to say, if the player performs stronger toward the end of the match the overall CSP will reflect that. We will outline our formula for CSP and CSP-Match (CSPM) and give some brief calculations and examples to give the reader an idea of the values CSP produces. The values of CSP are calculated within the Pool Stats Pro app and are available in the app on the Pool Stats Metabase interface.
