I'll be in Vegas for business from January 15 to January 22. I'll have my cue with me, although I play more poker than pool in that town.

I'm not looking for action, but I won't avoid cheap sets if they are friendly. Its always good to play other AZ'ers when I travel.

By the way, isn't that the dates of the CES show and the Adult Film conention? ;)

I think I'll miss it by a week. Not that I would know anything about that kind of thing.

i only go to Mickeys on Eastern n Vegas they have all new Diamond tables, I havent been to the other pool rooms in years, I play at home here. In i'm staying in LA is when I go out because I dont have a table. I have heard pool Sharks is good, it was last time I was in there in 93. Cue Club is the biggest and oldest its close to the strip. Action here is bad, awalys has been awalys will be. but the dry tables are nice.

Fatboy,
We've met before. At Southwest many years ago. I'd be happy to play some if you are in town at that time.

i dont remember but when i see you i'll remember for sure, i might be in germany then i'm not sure, its 50/50 right now, I have a lawsuit I filed that I might have to appear in court for, if not then I will probably be in Germany for my back problems. I hope I can push Germany foward a bit. Find me here and we'll make a plan, i'd like to hook up.

Fatboy,
I'm in Vegas fairly often, so if not this time, we'll hook up eventually. I may make the DCC for a couple days too. And I'll be in Germany next year, so who knows?

Good luck at the 10-Ball Ring Game.

I went to the CES show a few years ago, I had no idea that it was the same week as the adult film convention... Ironically they were walking around our hotel wearing almost nothing the whole time I was there...

I tried to make it to a pool room, but the cabby told me that the better pool rooms were in bad areas and he didn't recommend tourists going...
I would have loved to have visited the SW cue shop
Maybe next time


nothing is organized in Vegas there are multi-million dollar homes next to the hood, and the reverse. there arnt safe or unsafe areas they are all mixed together, my friend got rolled 2 times in 3 weeks in Summerlin(a good area?) just gotta keep your eyes open, its worse than most other citys, i'm more comfortable in most of LA(i live there too) some areas of LA are suicide.


The AVN show is cool, I have been to 2 times, I know a few girls in the "Biz" so its cool to go see them etc. alot of eye candy.ALOT.

I went to the Mosconi Cup and after, I shot/practiced with my friend at Pool Sharks on Decature where he shoots from 8:00AM til 5:00PM for $9.00 total - good deal. The place has good tables complements of the IPT, but is very smokey and not clean - good friendly people there though.

I also went to Cue Club on Sahara for their senior rate of $2.75 per hour during the day. The better tables are well kept and the balls are clean and bright - much nicer than Pool Sharks. The two times I went to practice, I was asked if I wanted to gamble - I don't (have to).

Hey Vagabond---or should I say "yo yo yo dawg!"

You need to leave the bangers in north town alone. You'll stir up all kinds of $hit if you wear some of your wild ass shoes in that neighborhood. :D

I will be @ the CES show for my business, and I knew of the Adult convention as well. So how far from the strip is a decent place to play? I will be staying @ the The Fairfield Inn Resorts about 2 miles from the strip I believe it is.

When Vagabond rolls into north town or the west side wearing those "wild a$$ limousines for the feet" and carrying his famous "Pimp Daddy" cue case, things tend to get intense real quick! That's just how he rolls!!!!!!!;) (this is the part where the theme from Shaft is playing in the background :D

As for places to play in Vegas, Pool Sharks has 2 Diamond tables. One in the pit and the other, I believe, is table #1 when you first walk in the door. Mickeys has added some Diamonds lately as well. The action at the Cue Club is rare since Toby's departure.

Wherever you decide to play, have fun and I hope you enjoy your visit.

Hi Cuaba,

I've been travelling to Vegas for twenty years in January for the CES. Yes, the porno show runs the same days at the Venetian and Sands Convention Center. Worth a trip if just for laughs. Don't let the other posters scare you off of the two main pool rooms in Vegas. While I'm there, I visit both Pool Sharks and the Cue Club. Personally never had any trouble either place.

Pool Sharks on Decator south of Spring Mountain Road has two full size Diamond Smart and one small Diamond Smart. The tables are not as well maintained as the Cue Club. The rest are "off brand" both large and small. If you want some action, stop at the front counter and ask for "Thumbs" most evenings. He'll find you a game. Some evenings Paul Brienza hangs.

The Las Vegas Cue Club is the oldest. Located off East Sahara in the Commercial Plaza. The plaza has been known to have problems from time to time. None at the Cue Club that I remember. They have twelve of the most BEAUTIFUL Gold Crowns. Small, small pockets, level chassis, relatively clean balls and unfortunately, rarely any action. Tuesday evenings they have handicapped nine ball. Anyone that may give you some action will be there.

Crystal Palace Billiards is located at Bonanza and Eastern. If you love three cushion, thats the place in Vegas. It is also a "gang" haven. Most players avoid it. Go there daytime with friends.

The rest of the rooms in Vegas feature bar boxes. Mickey's, Cheers, Dealers Choice and Rum Runner Tropicana have one or more small Diamond Smart Tables. Friday nights at Dealers Choice is always a good 9 Ball tournament. The bars I mention hold the LV Diamond Tour. Stop by any of those bars for a schedule.

Any highers stakes games are almost magical if they happen. All the better players have given up and play poker instead. Teddy Garrahan was around or nearly a year. Walter Glass is still around town. Chinese Chad is playing poker. Regardless, have fun. See you at the Cue Club on Tuesdays.

Lyn,
Thanks for the info. I'll try to make the Tuesday night 9-Ball tourney at the Cue Club. I've been there before.

Last time I was there, Billy Incardona was matched up with somebody. Seems like they were playing one-hole?

I played in the tourney last night as a 10. I got within 2 matches of the money. I beat everybody I played even, but lost to a couple Filipinos I had to spot balls.

I'll be back tomorrow (Thursday) for another tourney at the Cue Club. I'll be the guy with the ivory & cocobolo Southwest.
