What's up everyone. Joined a couple weeks ago. Got some pretty harsh backlash in my first post for asking a question about CTE so I learned fast that we got some crazies here haha.

Anyway, been casually playing pool since I was a teenager but decided about 2 months ago I was going to take it a little more serious. I get to the table about 2-3 week. Mainly focusing on CTE Pro One at this point and still been getting my head around the market and current technology preparing to buy my first ever cue. Kind of excited.

Hey,

Been playing pool since I was a little kid, I'm extremely casual. Generally speaking I beat bar players and can hang with some league players. So that puts me somewhere between sucking and above average depending on how the balls are rolling for me on a given evening. I live in West Virginia where you have to go dramatically out of your way to find a real pool hall, everything in Charleston is 8ft bar tables surrounded by noisy drunks--but I shoot at my local bar 1 or 2 times a week(mostly by myself as I go very early in the day).

I'm a full time Computer Specialist by trade who's also working on a 2nd degree part time and a newish father, so pretty busy. In addition to pool my hobbies include shooting guns, video games, women and drawing. My favorite pros are Buddy Hall and Jeanette Lee. I work nights with pretty much nothing to do(such as right now) so figured I would create an account to kill time with since I love pool and this forum seems fairly active.

Thanks,

Smile Hi there from the Netherlands - 07-12-2017, 07:25 AM

Hello fellow pool addicts,

Long time lurker, first time poster from Holland here. I was hoping to be able to post a bit sooner, but for some reason I had to wait a while to have my posting privileges granted.

Anyway, I've been playing this beautiful game for going-on-twenty years now, out of which the first 15 were of the 'ballbangin'-variety. Only the last few years I've been studying the technical side and the mechanics of the game, so I'm a bit reluctant to actually boast my twenty years experience. I'm a modest guy anyway so I wouldn't be doing a lot of boastin'.

I absolutely love training on my own now that I have this new-found technical insight of the game. I love doing drills and running racks of straight pool for hours a few times a week, I also play some friends at the club (preferably the ones that are better than me or at least give me a good challenge) and I am captain of a competition team (like APA I guess, allthough competition in Holland is organized in a different way). I tend to struggle a bit with the mental side of the game sometimes - to be honest, I get down on myself sometimes and I tend to be way too hard on myself. Tryin' to work on that too!

So what else... I'm playing with a Predator P3, but have ordered an Exceed (been waiting for almost a year for delivery, expect to receive it end of this year... should still be worth it though)

Guess that's it for now. Feel free to ask if you wanna know more! I expect to post regularly, so maybe we'll meet!

I'm 36 and live in middle Georgia, work at Robins AFB and AF veteran. Recently purchased a new home. Misstook the formal dining area as being large enough for a table, was wrong. Wound up putting a table in the garage.

After reading through the site I quickly learned that this is a forum for dedicated players and the table preference being either a GC or Diamond. While searching for a table I ruled out a Diamond based on my budget and searched for either a GC or Gandy big G. Really wanted a Gandy beings how I'm in the Macon area. No luck on Craigslist for that but did find a 9' Brunswick Sport King in decent condition p, which most on here seem to agree is also a great playing table. It was a family table and never in a pool room. $500 later and $440 to have it put together I'm happily playing again. This is my second table, previous a Brunswick Orleans. Love how the SK plays. It has the original Monarch cushions which still play great. The pockets are huge. On no accounts am I a great player so enjoy being able to slam balls in. My last table had far tighter pockets and I didn't enjoy the game play on it as much. Play with a Viking cue and bought new Cyclop balls. Will post game room pictures in the show your home room thread at a later date.

New Old Guy - 08-13-2017, 10:39 AM

New guy here. Back after about a 20 year break from the game. And it shows, I'm terrible! All I can do anymore is bank for some odd reason.

Been playing and practicing as much as possible for the past month or so and back in love with it just like I was in college. My lovely wife enjoys playing too, but she's never played in the past.

Have a cue on order, and wife will be getting one soon as well. We are both lining up lessons with a local pro as well.

If anybody is near Greenville, SC and would like to play for funsies or offer us some tips, let me know!

Dave

Yeah I see I used the word 'competition' where I shoulda used 'league', I guess. Anyway, like I mentioned here: http://forums.azbilliards.com/showpo...postcount=2951 we don't have a handicap system, we always play on 9ft tables and besides 8 and 9 we also play 10ball, straight pool and 10ball scotch doubles.

The leagues are organized in districts and divisions.
Districts cover a smaller area (so closer to home). Levels are a bit lower. Played in the evenings on week days.
Divisions cover a bigger area of Holland (higher division = bigger area), played during weekends and play level increases with each higher divisions too. The highest division has players like Niels Feijen, Marco Teutscher, Nick vd Berg etc.
