    Who is the BEST mechanic in the US????

    Jerrod Lenderman 936-263-9630 (Houston area) set up my Diamond table which was delivered completely unassembled (and I do mean completely!) and did a bang-up job.

    Savannah - Places to Play

    Next week, I will be in Savannah and am interested in finding a fun place to play. Big tables or bar boxes are fine. Banging around or serious is fine. Maybe even a weekly tournament. I will be staying downtown, so I probably want to stick close to that area. Thanks for the help!

    At the 44 minute nark in the Ignacio/Pagulayan match in Kuwait (on Youtube). Jeffrey breaks, but it looks like nobody sees the seven ball drop and he turns the table over to Alex. Am I missing something here?
