Are there any one-handed pool tournaments?
Yes. Shooting pool one-handed is not recognized as a separate game or type of play for conventional tournaments. However, there are local pool halls that hold smal local tournaments for players that want to use their one handed skills.

For many tournaments your performance/record in pool play determines where you get bracketed for elimination play. Sometimes pool play has different time limit rules than bracket play. As a coach, it is certainly something you need to be aware of.
