Posted 02-11-2013 at 06:42 PM by SloMoHolic

Thanks, everyone, for checking out the video, and for your kind words (and greenies!). I'm glad you liked it! I truly enjoyed sharing this with you.

I'm just going to reply to all the posts in this one mega-response.

Current list of requests for AUSM Video 2
(including requests that didn't make it into AUSM Video 1):


Some real-time shots for reference
Breaks: 9 on the spot (head and wing balls)
Breaks: 10-ball (2nd ball)
...
When will then be now?

It's about the game

Posted 02-09-2013 at 10:31 PM by Yoda4962

I love the game. I love the study of it, the appreciation of it, the beauty of the struggle.

I love that no one really masters it, only some seem to come close, but they are the wise ones that would admit that they too, are still the students.

I love that the world fades away as one is on a 20 ball run, or a 200 ball run, and no one is allowed into that space, or that time, or that private world.

I fell in love in high school, and have been in love...

My very first lesson in gambling:

My very first lesson in gambling:

I had played for drinks and played challenge tables for money but had never matched up with anyone. Heck I did not even know what "match up" meant.

One night I went into my local tavern with my brand new Huebler to try it out. There was only one other person in the bar and when he saw me with a pool case his ears perked right up. As soon as I got to the table he was all over me....

How I learned what real pool players could do.

Posted 01-23-2013 at 09:55 AM by gregcantrall

In 1982 we lived in Tacoma, WA. We accidentally found a weekly pool tournament at a little bar(The Creekwater) on South Tacoma Way. They only had one pool table. In the course of playing in that little tournament, another player told us about a 9 ball tournament Wed. nights at the White Spot in Fife. They had 5 bar tables and a 9 foot Gold Crown. I had never heard of 9 ball. It was described as being the biggest and best weekly tournament around. So we go and check it out. OMG! It was a whole new...

My first BLOG post.

Posted 01-23-2013 at 07:59 AM by gregcantrall

How I got into pool.
In 1974 I made a pool table. Prior to that I had never played pool, other than a couple of games at the bowling alley when I was ten or twelve years old. I worked in a particle board plant in Anderson, CA. We made the particle board tops for Sears cheap home tables. I came across an article in Popular Science or Popular Mechanics on "How to Build a Pool Table". So for $125 I built a three and a half by seven pool table, complete with balls, rack and cue. I also...

"Real Eyes" the Simplicity of Super-Accurate Shot Making

Posted 01-19-2013 at 11:49 PM by CJ Wiley

At first the players that I've worked with don't like the idea of creating angles with their tip and the cue ball (without "aiming"). Then when I show them how it actually works and the precision and accuracy it generates, they quickly "open their minds" to the potential of the TOI.

I know this is "common sense," however I'll say it again "the cue ball is the target and the tip is the only direct relationship we have to the Game."
