he sounds awesome.but table conditions have a lot to do with it.example in baton rouge a year ago i beat the 12 ball ghost 25 ahead in 5-6 hours on that gold crown up front in bayou billiards.i was even playing it to where i had to run the table clean.but then this year in vegas i lost playing 6 ahead for two thousand,but the table was brutal.i kind of thought i could not beat it on that table.but on a easy table its a hanger to rob that game for me or any other top player.

I am not trying to start a pissing contest. You said you were looking for some action and I suggested that Corey would play him some. I know playing even isnt fair, and I wasnt suggesting that. I am sure they are friends, but I know Corey will play, and I am sure Robb would play some too. What kind of spot does he want??? If he doesnt want to match up, thats cool too. I am bored and feel like gambling.

Wait a minute, Robb with two "b"s seems to imply Robb Saez. But from the opening post in this thread, how could it be Robb Saez? The poster said "Rob[sic?] was talking about how good he used to play." Unless he gave up the game and aged 20 years in the last 6 months, that wouldn't make much sense, would it?

Also, is Robb Saez's nickname "the big hurt"?

Don't bother.... I'm sure Robb will just want the nuts and end up sitting at the bar talking to other road players because no one can ever match up a game because they can't get the nuts. I'm also sure it will be Robb and the road players wanting the nuts, not the local players.

Rob is going threw some personal issues right now. I'm thinking he might need a week or two.
I'm also sure Rob and Corey know their game, so I can't really speak on that either.

Let you know when he's back.


Robs been on that end of Corey's wrath before...he's been there done that. I'm not sure if Rob would want you setting up games for him either...unless your the stake of course. You might wanna consult him before running the smack cause there is a few guys in Florida that might want some...I'm friendly with Rob and I'm not a non-believer, I'm just offering some older dude advice to a younger one.

If the locals aren't gamblig with each other I doubt they will "gamble"
with road guys.
T-Rex must have really been gambling!

I guessing its Melrose that he is talking about. If I was there he could get action on that 12 ball ghost and I would make sure to move the kids.

Don't you think the rack makes more difference than the table? Balls fly in all over in twelve ball when they are frozen. Eleven can be harder, imo.

Do you kill the 15-ball ghost on easy tables too? I've seen Earl and Efren break for an hour at a time on easy but unfamiliar slow nap tables and never run the first rack of 15 ball. Of course, they weren't taking ball in hand though, lol! And Efren did break and run 3 that one time and then unscrew his cue...

no i dont kill the 15ball ghost,but the twelve ball is fairly hard on say 4.5 pockets.now gabe owen i believe took 3to2 on the money per rack and broke even,and i think hes a great player.if i could pick the table i would play the 15 ball ghost with 4 to 1 on the money per rack and it would be close.

John has a straight pool run of over 400 balls WOW!! :eek:
That just freaks me out!! I couldn't imagine that he would have a really hard time with any ghost. Isn't there some magical place that you reach when you can get to 400+? Doesn't that make you like a SITH LORD? You have to have a little bit of the dark side to do that. I have seen John play quite a few times and I would never ever bet against him, I couldn't. Even if everything inside me told me that he was going to get killed, when a played can reach that level, he can beat just about any game. It just depends on his head on that given day.

Thanks for the honest answer, I was afraid you were going to say it was easy and I might have to change my career plans!

Did you mean Gabe took 3to2 playing 12 ball?

I've heard of Corey beating 12 ball on some fairly easy tables in Atlanta, but the only top player I've seen playing the ghost was Alex a while back on JOB's Diamond. He played 10-ball and was down the first 3 5 ahead sets before he came back with 15 games in a row. I couldn't believe anyone was betting against him.

I still think the rack makes more difference than the table. I have played ahead of it for a while with both hands on 4" pockets with a perfect rack. But I'm not sure I could beat it on any table with a bad rack.

Probably because nothing ever comes of games on here. Just a lot of talk. Rob Melrose??? You gotta be kidding me. He is a shortstop. Did you really think he was going to try the 12 ball ghost on a tight table. Didnt take a lot of heart for you to offer that game did it??
That oughtta liven this thread up!

AZE, last time I was down there that place was a HOLE! (I felt like I was in a time warp playing Jimmy King down in Alabama on a crappy bar tabl!!) No offense to you or anyone that loves the place, but the RED felt was sloooow, worn out, and there was no de-humidifier in sight/operation. I am old enough to have had the pleasure of playing on crap like that, but I do appreciate Simonis and Granito for consistancy. That place reminded me of a college rec-room that was NOT very well taken care of. There is a much better place to play over on university in the Pines, can't remember the place right now.... Anyway, is your "boy" tall, chunky, and wear a diamond ring? That is the only Rob I can think of at the moment that used to play decent in that area.

Anyway, I'll be down there on vacation next week and we can play some 1P and banks. I haven't been playing lately and will be enjoyin the sun and Fat tuesdays, but we can play. I find it amusing that you are complaining about action down there, plenty in Orlando and miami. Most backers I know always want the world if they can actually play and step to the table, not just the nuts!! Pretty amusing considering all the smack you hear. (Pool halls should have a boxing ring in the back to squash all that sh-t) I have found that the BEST players gamble with their OWN money. They are much,much, tougher to beat.

Anyway, do you have a real name? I am Dr. Scott. 6'2", 250, shaved cube, and muscular. Looking forward to it, Scott

Sorry Dr. but you have the wrong spot, you mean the Billiard Club on 84...I think had the red cloth and I think its closed. Hollywood isnt the most glamorous spot but the action tables are in pretty good shape. The second spot on Pines is also closed, more a Night Club with pool tables and too much Key West themed crap.

Pretty positive I have the place right. (North side of street with angle parking a couple of blocks before US1) And I do seem to remember the red felt! ;o) Maybe AZE will chime in. The other hall I mentioned is/was behind the Dodge Dealership on University south of Sheridan. (Not the 84 spot) The last place had 9ft tables with slow and fast felt as I recall. Scott

CSCOTT,

Hollywood billiards is right off of 441 just north of Hollywood blvd by the turnpike. The place behind the dodge dealership is Beyon Billiards.

Hollywood has nice tables - rather old room, but action was good, when i lived there.

the place you are talking about is down by US1 is Gold Crown......

FWIW

Hollywood has never had red cloth. I'm pretty sure Margie, one of the owners, would cringe at the thought.

I don't know if it's just me, but playing the ghost for action is weird! especially if you have someone betting on it. You have one guy betting another guy on the pool table, but only one of them ever picks up a cue. Sounds like a gaff shot session.

If you have 2 players ready for action, why aren't they playing each other? Is it easier action to sit and watch someone play the ghost?

I don't know....I've been bored sitting at the pool room too looking for action, but never THAT bored!:D
