Music and Pool

Posted 10-15-2012 at 11:24 AM by Maestro

It is this state I believe that was so desirable and familiar to the great musicians of the past. I have started a group on AZ, to which I hope others will join and contribute in conversation.

I am happy to share...

Russian Pyramid: It's Pool on Steroids

Posted 11-20-2010 at 02:48 PM by the Goof Ball

It is about time that people stop complaining that 8-ball is too hard. You would not even survive playing the Russian variation of billiards, named Russian Pyramid.

What’s the difference between this Russian game and the pool we know and love? For one, it is much more difficult, requiring immense precision and overall skill. The concept of ‘luck’ we sure are familiar with has been reduced to barely anything in Russian Pyramid....
