WPBA San Diego Classic

Posted 04-09-2009 at 04:48 PM by AzHousePro

Still recovering from the trip to Alpine California for the WPBA San Diego Classic.

What a great show. The three days I spent there was the longest I have been at a Classic Tour event and it is very interesting to see how the level of play rises from day one to day three.

Although a couple of players ran out of gas late on day three, the majority of the players still in the running took their game to a different level.

Of particular note was Jeanette...

Cisero Murphy Pool Cue FOR SALE!!

Posted 04-10-2009 at 02:48 PM by robyn_cuyler

So, I happened to inherit a pool cue from my Dad who got it from Cisero Murphy. Anyways, I would like to sell it. I believe it is made by George Balabushka. Well, if anyone is interested in buying it, please let me know. It is believed to be one in a set of 10 that a museum in Ohio has. That museum offered us 30,000 for it, but my sisters and I were being sentimental at the time and didnt want to sell. I was told it is worth more. Well, I guess just pass the word along and see if anyone is interested....

back :: 2009 BCAPL National 8-Ball Championships

Posted 05-30-2009 at 09:17 AM by omgwtf (the floggings will continue until morale improves)
Updated 06-10-2009 at 01:50 PM by omgwtf

2009 BCAPL National 8-Ball Championships
Riviera Hotel & Casino - Las Vegas, NV


This year, I knew I was going to enjoy Las Vegas.

This is because my jackhole boss of previous years has moved on to another establishment and my interim boss was much, much more reasonable about me taking vacation time (and not having to work while on vacation... because... you know... it's... vacation... even if pool is like a job sometimes).

Anyhow,...

Justin Collett, one of the large halves of The Action Report, has started a blog. Since he has access to most of pool's most colorful characters (with or without substantial bankrolls), you can only imagine the stories he has to tell and the photographs he's taken.

Ive Been a bit swamped this last month, keeping up with two full time jobs (hopefully only for a short while) and keeping up with orders.

Anyhoo, getting down to brass tacks.. I thought I would inspire a little fresh blood to try my services, as it seems like my other.. other job is starting to edge out to a close....

NCAA women's basketball enables transgendered sportsperson to compete

Posted 11-29-2010 at 03:27 AM by BaronC

Allums, a George Washington University student and basketball player, has sparked a controversy. Allums can play women's basketball next year. This is controversial because Kye is a female-to-male transgendered person. This decision took consultation with the NCAA and a number of other groups. George Washington University, ultimately, made the final decision.

The Next Golden Age of Pool is Coming

Posted 12-22-2010 at 05:47 AM by gunzby

Over the last decade I've seen, or heard of quite a few pool halls closing. In that same period of time I have also seen billiards on television less and less, much to my dismay. We have seen the blame placed on the economy, promoters, video games, bad image, the time it takes to learn the game and on the professional players themselves. I am here to say that things will be tilting back in pool's favor soon.

We are seeing more and more events streamed onto the internet. Between tournaments,...

Trade/Sell Meucci SE IV

Posted 03-10-2011 at 12:21 PM by gwhiteia

I would like to sell a Meucci SE IV with 2 factory shafts. I would be willing to trade for a Meucci Gambler depending on which series it is.

This cue has never been chalked or used and has the serial number tag in the butt. I have had it since it was new.
I can take more pictures other than what I post and send to you.

Thanks, Greg

Are Systems Essential to World Class Pool?

Posted 08-13-2012 at 07:46 PM by CJ Wiley
Updated 08-20-2012 at 06:12 AM by CJ Wiley

I can't help but wonder how anyone could think you could play pool (or anything else) at the highest level without a system. Whether we want to realize it or not there is a conscious or unconcious system for all aspects of pocket billiards. That goes for pocketing balls, playing zone position, lining up your eyes correctly relative to the line of the shot, etc.

The main thing with aiming is the way we connect the two balls together BEFORE getting down on the shot. If anyone doesn't...

Gene and Rhea meet continued

Posted 04-02-2014 at 09:35 PM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

I got to witness pure genius as Gene played flawless as the highest rating in the GSBT tournament in a field of approx 25 players with a couple other 11s besides Gene. Gene was the winner of the hotseat even playing races to 11 with people who only had to go to 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 9. He ended up winning 1st place tonight for $500 and we got half of him in the calcutta as well for even more.

To top off the night I ended up getting 5th place and got to meet Shannon the Cannon. Shannon...

So today I made $150 but I had to shoot my best game and he really did play superb I was just lucky on some of my shots.

Tonight was our last night in Eau Claire, we woke up and went to get the van, it is all fixed now, then spent some time at Gene's family's residence.

Then we stopped in to the Hallow, I ended up playing a friend a race to 5 for $20 in 9-ball and won 5-4. Then we played a race to 4 in 8 ball for $20 and I won 4-1.

Then we left the Hallow...

Wisconsin

Posted 04-02-2014 at 09:43 PM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

Tonight I played Kelly, she is one tough cookie.

Every set we played was for $50. The first set was a race to 9 it went hill-hill and she won. I won the 2nd set 9-3. She won the 3rd set 9-5. She won the 4th set 9-7. She won the 5th set 7-5. I won the 6th set 6-4. She won the 7th set 6-5. She won the final set 5-3.

So tonight I lost $200 not a good way to start off.

Sad to see her go...... - 12-11-2013, 02:19 PM
