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....
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).

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. Here's to more posts in the future, Justin! theactionreport.blogspot.com...

Lots of great players for these events. Oscar and his Dad Ernesto Dominguez, those players mentioned above (last month's one pocket and 9 ball winners) George Michaels and Jun Almoite, HOF'er Ronnie Allen and the area's best players.
Always a pleasure to host one of the West Coast's better attended monthly events....

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. So first off I want to appologise for any mistakes made on my part.. I honestly work 18+ hours a day right now and still try to have time to spend with my fiance and son..
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....
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.

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...
I have said my peace and no one has answered MANY of the questions I asked?
I am not argumentative and indicated a lack of MALICE by Zimmerman! But, hay they can't even acknowledge that a DEAD black kid is pretty sad!!! In their minds some how he earned it! Should not have gotten skittles! Should gone home versus hide! Should have called 911! All MODIFICATIONS are to be made by Trayvon Martin. Mr. Zimmerman is not to have done one thing

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...

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
