MVP Program

 
The Orange County MVP program awards the highest finishing players in each skill level tier League wide. The top twenty players from each tier are invited to play in the tiered MVP tournament held at the end of each session where players will win cash and every tournament winner receives paid entry into the next Singles Regional tournament.
 
Using regular session data, qualifying players will be determined by using the following equation to determine their "Points Available" better known as their "PA" percentage:
 
Number of points earned DIVIDED BY number of points available = Top Gun Score 
 
8-Ball Example: In every 8-Ball match, a player has 3 points available to win. If a player plays 10 matches, they have 30 points available to win. If they win a total of 13 points in those 10 matches then the calculation is: 13 DIVIDED BY 30 = .43 or 43%. This means the player won 43% of the points available "PA" during the session and that is their Top Gun score.
 
9-Ball Example: In every 9-Ball match, a player has 20 points available to win. If a player plays 10 matches, they have 200 points available to win. If they win a total of 162 points in those 10 matches then the calculation is: 162 DIVIDED BY 200 = .81 or 81%. This means that player won 81% of the points available "PA" during the session and that is their Top Gun score.
 
Ties will be broken in the following order using regular session play data: (1) Total number of matches played during the session, (2) session win percentage, (3) session performance points, (4) lifetime win percentage.
 
In order for a player to qualify, they must play at least six times with their team during the regular session. 
 
The skill level tiers are broken down as follows: 
 
8-Ball
Blue Tier (Skill Level 2-3)
Yellow Tier (Skill Level 4)
Red Tier (Skill Level 5)
Orange Tier (Skill Level 6)
Purple Tier (Skill Level 7)
 
9-Ball
Green Tier (Skill Level 1-2-3)
White Tier (Skill Level 4-5)
Black Tier (Skill Level 6-7-8-9) 
 
The top finishing player in each skill level tier League wide, at the end of regular session play, will earn a custom MVP jacket which will be presented to the champion at the MVP tournament. The MVP tournament is 100% payback to the top 25% of the board. The OCAPA will add $1,280 per session in Singles Regional tournament entries.
 
For a player to remain eligible to participate in the tournament, they must be actively participating on a team the following session in the format they qualified.
