The APA wants beginners and novices, because it is the AMATEUR Poolplayers Association.

No other organization in pool gives ordinary players a chance to win a share of nearly .5 MILLION guaranteed cash and prizes paid out through its national tournaments. It uses The Equalizer® handicap system to determine the amount of games a player has to win in order to capture the match.

It allows a novice to win less games than a more-skilled opponent to win a match.
