Hello! Ive finished reading the Beard's books "Banking with the Beard" and "the Gospool". Now Im going to buy either one of the dvds "Banking with the Beard" or "Banks that dont go.. but do".

Those of you who have seen both dvds could you tell me the differences in the dvds and which one would you recommend.

Would love to buy them both but its always about the darn $$$ ;)

It you can't afford both just flip a coin. They are both excellent. I have both, and the books, and find them both instructive and enjoyable to watch.

I too bought both books and read them prior to purchasing the DVD's. After reading both books, i had an idea what he was saying, but it is hard for me to visualize things sometimes so I bought Banking with the Beard.

My reasoning behind that purchase was to better familiarize myself with his systems as described in the books so I could see him do what I had read and solidify the techniques in my head.

The situations that come up in Banking with the Beard, are more commonplace in games than things covered in Banks that don't go but do. While shots from that DVD do come up and are usually game winners, they are fewer and further between than those systems and banks covered in Banking with the Beard.

My recommendation to you would be: if you have a good understanding of the systems discussed in Banking with the Beard, then buy the other one. Otherwise, buy Banking with the Beard. Then at a later time, buy the other. I personally did not get as much out of Banks that don't go, as I did out of Banking with the Beard.

Hope that helps.

I only saw BTDGBD (lol) and I enjoyed it a lot. One thing it covers are situations where there is no bank due to a double kiss. Seems like they come up all the time. It gives you half a chance of making the ball anyway using various tricks, and sometimes it's the only shot.

Otherwise, probably what H515 said.

Fipping a coin is a good idea. theyre both good. They're the reason im putting a flatscreen above my table. No more running in and out of the house to try and replicate the shots.

Fellas, I am in the process of reworking my website and blogs. You can only order products off of my website. The order links on my blogs are no longer operational. I'm moving all my blogs over to my website. I also have a whole new shirt line coming out, Straight Pool Forever, Nine Ball Forever, One Pocket Forever, etc. and Billiards Forever in any foreign language.

Thanks pal,,,,,,,,,,,,Alan,,,,,,,,

I like the idea of a t-shirt with "One-Pocket Forever" in Tagalog.

I dont know what Nynosk is but if you email me a translation for Billiards Forever in Norwegian I will give it a shot -- if you order that shirt.
