I wasn't there for league this day but this past summer in Columbia, MO someone hit a Cali ace on his second tee-shot and was denied the ace pot. Presumably this rule had been in place, but I've never heard it discussed ahead of time and it certainly isn't written down anywhere. Resulted in a ton of Facebook comments afterwards of people arguing about it though.

I see both sides. In my experience most people don't benefit from being Cali and consider drawing Cali as a disadvantage for them. So the added benefit of 2 shots for ace pool or ctp is nice. All the leagues in my area allow Cali aces.

I'm more interested to know how many leagues mandate splitting their ace pots with there partner who didn't get an ace?

It's in the wording of local doubles event info that aces are split. The person running it automatically gives each partner half so it isn't an issue.

In the wording of your local doubles? Or is there some unified doctrine that dictates how we pay aces?

On the Facebook posting of local event info, the wording says all aces pay half to partner. What are you asking? Are you trying to insinuate that I'm speaking for all doubles around the world? Nobody else's scene is of concern to me. You do you.

What's your deal, friend?

It's a balance of pros and cons to try and be relatively fair. Some pros; Extra Ace shot or CTP throw, Not splitting any winnings with a partner, being able to adjust right away to a missed shot and try again. Some cons; Only getting 1 extra shot per hole instead of 2 shots (by different players) on every hole, Not being able to rely on a partner, ect… Overall you give some benefits to the player that is cali to make up for being cali. I think we can agree in general being cali vs doubles team is a disadvantage score wise. So think of the fairness in a little bigger terms. Yes when looking at fairness smaller scale the CTP competition is unfair standing alone. Look at the fairness at the league level and it makes more sense to allow odd # of players by giving benefits to the odd player for not having a partner.

That is not something our league has ever entertained. You pay your entry in the Ace pool you are free to do what you like with the winning should you hit the ace. I have had partners who discuss it before hand, like hey lets run some aces tonight and split it if one of us hits. That usually happens more when the ace pot grows during the winter and is pretty nice when spring rolls around.

I agree. Around here it's different though. I've had many conversations with locals trying to understand the reasoning/origin behind it and my consensus is it's a nice thing to do for your partner.
