Contrary to popular belief no matter how hard beginning players try to coax their ball into the target pocket, their efforts usually fall short. Yelling, jumping up and down, or even impassioned pleas up towards the pool Gods in the sky seldom make a difference. These realizations come with time, but when they finally click itís a relief to the players and everyone around them.

As players progress in skill level they cross through a veil into a...

Most people who are new to the game think itís cool to shoot the cue ball into their target ball as hard as humanly possible Ė on every single shot. They do this for two simple reasons: A) because shooting hard creates a lot of collateral action (think slop play) that may or may not end well for them and B) because they donít know what they are doing. Fact of the matter is shooting too hard will greatly reduce accuracy and ďmake the pocket smallerĒ. This does...

A game with friends can be a bit of a messy business, with cues, chalk, and racks strewn aboutÖ especially if thereís any beer involved. Legacyís Perfect Drawer allows you to store everything you need in one place, and put it out of sight like you didnít just stay up till four AM last night.

Whether you donít have room for traditional storage furniture like a cue rack, or you (or your family) just prefer that the only pool-related thing that one...

Background
I have always been a quiet and reserved person. I enjoy various sports, but nothing has ever moved me quite like league play. I love the feel of a pool cue in my hand and the confidence of knowing I'm about to win it for my team.

A couple ways to kill time and improve your game:

I love drills because Iím the type of guy who needs structure when practicing. If I set out a target like I have to finish 3 runs of X or 5 runs of Y, it ensures that I use my practice time productively and not just piss it away.
