Royal Oak

When I started playing pool it was against the law to play 9 ball in a pool hall, in Texas. 1959.

I played snooker at the Pasadena (Texas) Recreation Hall. They had 5 snooker tables in good condition and 4 8' pool tables that were not playable.

As far as tips. I didn't know there were different tips. I had a two piece cue that I bought that had a soft tip but not an Elk Master. It dried out and fell off. The repairman at the bowling alley that had a pool hall in it, in San Diego put a hard tip on it. That was the worst tip I have ever played with, glazed like crazy.

How can you "re-felt" a table if it isn't called felt?
Wouldn't it be called "re-clothing" a table?

There was a pretty well known room in Fairfield, CT called "The Felt Forum".
For non-NYC area people, this was a play on words because Madison Square Garden had a smaller theatre venue in its bowels knwon as the Felt Forum.
It was a high level action room for strictly low level players, lol. Outfitted in exclusively with Gandy Big G's, serious players played elsewhere. -Z-

Actually, we play on cloth...unless you're playing bar box in a dive..
....then it's probably baize...which is a coarse version of cloth.

Lol, I'll stick w re-felting. I feel I need to feel again.

I was playing a guy for $20...he hung the nine...he yelled 'This table needs new felt!"....
...I told him "It's cloth...pay up."
He said "I'll call it anything I @&$#% well want."....gave me the twenty...

Real players played 6-ball, 9-ball and one pocket. Occasionally somebody would try a little straight pool but it was mostly a cure for insomnia.

The Lone Ranger lunch box you carried in school holds a thermos of soup, a peanut butter sandwich and a little baggie of Oreos. You scan the room for a game and spot a youngster of 60 or so and figure you'll have to spot him to get a game for the time.

Pool rooms were upstairs. Creaky stairs.

Fraternal orders had rec rooms with four to eight massive tables from the turn of the century.

The rack man got a dime for 9-ball and 15 cents for 8-ball. Yes, he had a coin changer around his waist, and no one but the rack man ever racked a game.

Two piece cures were fairly rare in small pool halls. The old hustler had the fanciest Palmer; a rich young GM employee a Balabushka.

In the early 70s there were photo cards showing the fruits of labor of Joss Cues, Tad, later Richard Black, Schon and other cue makers now famous. They were passed around at various pool venues by guys claiming to be dealers or claiming to be able to place orders. They were actual photos, usually 4x6 but sometimes 5x7. It was much less expensive than paying for four-color printed cards, which would not have looked as good as the photos anyway. I'm sure some collectors still have copies of these old cue photos stashed away. The prices were astoundingly low compared to today's prices - $100 to $250 vs. $1000 to $2500.

All the guys with really good cues also had a fine alligator skin or leather Fellini case. The oval Fellini cases went 'shuck" when opened or closed, and their small locks had a particular 'snick' sound when closed - loud if the player lost, soft and mellow if the player won (or at least it seemed that way to me). They were nearly air-tight, and very beautiful. They held just one butt and shaft, and could not stand the competition from the later multi-butt, multi-shaft cases.

When I had to sneak into the pool hall because I was under 18 in Dayton, Ohio. Every real poolroom had at least one snooker table (10' American model) and one Three Cushion table. Most places charged sixty cents per hour per player. Ninety cents was considered expensive. Some places still charged by the game, usually a dime and the loser had to pay. You had to wait for the rack man to rack the balls for the next game.

In most poolrooms no deposit was necessary to play. They just handed you the balls and sent you to a table. You paid when you finished, it was all on the honor system. Every poolroom had a large assortment of house cues in varying weights from 15 ounces to 21. If you found a good house cue to your liking you put an identifying mark on it or even hid it somewhere when you finished playing.

You could buy a new Balabushka for $200! (I owned two and sold both when I went broke). There were poolrooms everywhere in the early 60's! Most were the new "family" style rooms with deco furniture and bright lighting. They were big places with sixteen or more tables and moms could feel comfortable leaving their kids there (if they didn't serve alcohol).

If you drove to the next town over, you were "on the road." Every poolroom had a "steer" man who would help you find games for a small cut of your winnings (usually 10%). As soon as you beat someone who could play you would be subject to local "knockers" trying to kill your action. It was time to move on. If you went broke, you slept in your car and sometimes you had to play "on ass" (with no money in your pocket) to get pumped up again. If you lost in that spot you had to give up your cue and maybe your watch (I never did, lol).

Winning $50 was a nice "score." If you had $400 in your pocket you felt like a rich man. You had no bank account, only the money in your pocket or in the glove compartment of your car. A really good hustler owned a Cadillac. There were at least a few hundred hustlers working the U.S. poolrooms and you would see the same faces all over the country. No one had a break cue and only one shaft to play with. If your tip got bad you had to change it yourself using a good knife, sandpaper, some glue and a large rubber band.

Everyone played 9-Ball and only the good players played One Pocket. In the Northeast they still played Straight Pool and in Kentucky, Tennessee, Southern Ohio and around Chicago, Bank Pool was popular. The old time players could play snooker and billiards as well and all of them said Greenleaf was the greatest player, not Mosconi. Lassiter was the King in the 60's and Ed Kelly was the rising star. Ronnie Allen ruled the One Pocket scene. Bar table pool was considered stealing by the real pool players, but that's where they went to make money. There were more suckers in the bars then the poolrooms and anyone could challenge the table by putting a quarter on the rail. A dollar a game (or a drink) was normal in most bars and a good player good make $25 or $30 in a night by holding the table for awhile when they had the chance.

Johnston City and then the Stardust kicked off a new tournament scene and many poolrooms and bars stated putting on money added events. The best players started traveling to these events for the gambling action more so than the tournament itself which was secondary. The very best hustlers avoided the tournaments and didn't want anyone to know them. Cameras were often forbidden at tournaments with most players not wanting their pictures taken. The Billiard News was the only pool newspaper, written and prepared by Earl Newby. It was full of typo errors but the only source of pool news about who was winning the tournaments.

That's enough nostalgia for now. :)

My 60's Original BrAd Scuffer is older than most who frequent this website. It's a tool I still use every time before I begin play, and before the start of every match.
I had one of those on my key chain for twenty years they never wear out either lol

Your opponent tries to shark you and you think it's funny - and then he gets mad because you laughed. He ends up sharking himself.

When Predator made a five spliced shaft when Allan M. was still experimenting

The early ones were six and twelve piece....he settled for ten only later on.
Allan recommended the twelve piece for breaking.
He shipped me the fifth cue made of the BKs...first edition.
The tip was a 15 mm that had been in the vice for four days....
...best break tip I ever had.

When all of the guys you wanted to play like have passed away, and you look around and are surrounded by kids in their 30's.

I used to love champion tips

When you had to walk through the shoe shine parlor to enter the pool room which had a sign over the door, NO GIRLS ALLOWED!
