Ultimate Pool Louisiana Open

I watched some of it but bar box 8ball is a tough watch especially with A- players. But the production was good and I hope it continues.

yes, nice production!

hate to say it but maybe fargo capped this would have a brighter future in the US? the top boys are gonna forever torture the amateurs, so their willingness to keep donating might affect the longevity, and the likes of gomez and melling on these tables are obviously too good. it's a coin toss between them two

Konrad’s journey through suckage!

I might be signing out for a week or two. But if so it won’t be for long. Just something missing in my game right now. I don’t try-I win. Then everytime it matters and I really want to win and put in the effort I lose. Doesn’t matter the opponent. Could be that guy Charlie living under the viaduct. Could be Sam who has never picked up a cue before today. Could be anyone. Point being. They don’t even need to be good to win. Tonight made a 3 rail kick on the 2 , ran the whole table after and just missed a 2 foot 9 ball. I didn’t rush it or anything. Gotta be mental! Need to focus more on the table and less on the talking…….

True, but for a lot of people that's on purpose. 8 ball isn't necessarily a B&R game, especially on smaller tables. If you break them wide and nothing goes in you might be hosed. Often if a player thinks they can out-move you they will do a side break. There's nothing more annoying though than someone with a super weak break and the balls just don't move much. Often in leagues there's no such thing as breaking rules, if the balls spread at all it's legal. It's kind of a silly strategy. I see a lot of the ladies in league do this break and probably 10 balls stay in the racking area. Of course it's not everybody, some of them break great.

I'll employ a side break if I'm playing someone I know can run out on me. IDK if it's smart but man I've smashed a lot of racks head on and nothing dropped due to unfortunate kisses and such. It's basically suicide to spread the balls and not make onl
Boogie is playing chess over on the 8 ball table….not bad. I like to out offense my opponent on those ones rather that playing defensive. Doesn’t always work out, but when it does….

Sick and tired of Predator “nightmare customer service” 😠

I suggest you let the manufacturer know that without an equal value replacement this cue and your experience will be listed on every webpage any pool player consumer could ever visit. Also, I would let them know their cue butt quality is already being questioned on this site by not only owners but professional cue repair people and builders and include links to these reviews, to your personal experience posts. If you can get a reputable cue builder to diagnose the cause of the material failure in writing it couldn’t hurt. Best of luck.

That’s a good idea man, thanks for the advice. I’ll show it to one well known cue makers here in Calgary and ask him for a diagnosis.

I’m not calling you a liar but something sounds fishy. So you bought that cue with that big of a split and you didn’t notice it until now? That seems odd. That wouldn’t just happen sitting in a case not being used so someone got it out. That’s a major drop or something. 🤷🏻‍♂️ I play predator but I wouldn’t get some off the line production as an investment. Lol they aren’t investment cues . They are playing cues.

I guess I got lucky. my first revo cracked . I sent it back and even though they said it was my fault for changing the tip and not leaving the pad on it they gave me a new one No questions asked.
Again I didn’t buy it as an investment, my bad if didn’t express well (sorry English is not my first language) when I said collectible I meant I wanted to keep it in original condition because I really like the cue and didn’t want to play with it. Anyway, I bought the cue brand new, in perfect conditions and I never played with it. I don’t really know what causes that crack, it seems like the varnish just cracked, I don’t think it’s because of the temperature because my room is dry and always temperature is regulated at 22 ºC
