I live in Charleston and i've been here my whole life. We don't have a good pool room right now and it's been this way for years. There are places to play, but none with newer GC's or Diamond tables and it's sad because of the size of Charleston. The APA has a strangle hold on this area and pool is geared to bar boxes. I play in a small ACS league and I like it a lot because we have some good players in it without the handicap BS of the APA. I prefer 9' tables, but bar box action is about it right now.
