    Optical illusions in a pool hall versus home room

    So any home table owners ever noticed that when you play on the same table in a pool hall, the table looks bigger? My table is in a 2 car garage and I notice this problem. It's almost like the table seems bigger in a much bigger room. I know it's a subconscious optical illusion so I don't let...

    JD cue repair, this guy is awesome

    I don't post much anymore, but I felt this should be shared. Joel Dadivas is a quality cue builder especially for the price, I think most know this already. Well I had a cue of his from 2011 that just never felt right. Turned out the cue was damaged on the inside, and I never knew. With some...

    Great video showing a prime example of the "wheels coming off"

    My title is not meant to be disrespectful to anyone. I just feel I can relate to Beau Runningen in playing amazing one moment then watching it fall apart in the same set. This is a great video that shows how one mistake can shift the momentum and have you clawing to get it back. Beau plays...

    Need a table cover, just talk your wife into making one!

    So I was looking to buy a new table cover for my diamond pro am. Saw some online that looked ok and Diamond doesn't advertise their price for their table cover. I bought my wife a nice sewing machine about 2 months ago and she said she would make one. At first we were going to go with ripstop...

    Ever skunked a while tournament?

    So I played at a local bar table 9 ball tournament and won big. It was race to 3 double elimination with 24 players. I skunked the whole tournament including a couple of good local players. I consider it a pretty decent achievement because it is nine ball and a short race too. My final score was...

    taking the chin off the cue (mini story)

    Weird thread title right? Well I bought the Darren Appelton Perfect Practice and I have to say it is a great investment. Better than the SVB videos (except for his breaking vid). One of the subjects he talks about when doing the straight back draw shots (stroke builders) is making sure that...

    Camper instead of Hotel room for distant tournaments

    So I have been thing of getting a small camper and taking that to tournaments for my sleeping arrangements. That being said I don't think I can setup a camper in the shopping center parking lot of most pool halls. Does anyone actually do this? Just wondering what the pros and cons might be that...

    A couple of 40s for your critique

    Well I haven't posted in awhile, but I am still playing. Got my camera up and got a couple of videos for you guys. My high run is a 54 now and I am trying to play patterns better. Hoping to get a bigger run on camera soon. I definitely got the straight pool fever. Everyday I am watching videos...

    Things to bring to a pool tournament

    I am leaving for a tournament that is 3 hours away soon. I was trying my best not to forget anything I might need while there. The tournament will last 3 days. This got me thinking if someone had started a thread about this and I didnt find one. If you were going to a pool tournament for 3...
