    Shoot outs SUCK!

    I don’t consider pool a sport at all. It’s a game. One of the best games in the world in my humble opinion. I don’t consider football, futbol, either B balls, or tennis a sport either though. They are all games I think. It always irked me when poker folks claimed it a sport. I guess sports...

    Actual Brunswick Gold Crown iii vs Brunswick Centurion review

    I had a Brunswick cabriole I think it was called. I got it used for cheap. It was a decent table and I got plenty out of my money but without even taking a shot you could tell it wasn’t up to par with the nice commercial tables. I’m not sure what it was about but just getting down on a shot once...

    Shoot outs SUCK!

    With a little mental gymnastics you will see that this is actually a race to 8 but with a twist. If you do poorly (or just play a little worse than opponent) you will get spotted 1-3 games once your opponent has reached the halfway point. If you then win this race to 8 you have to pay for your...

    Happy Birthday, Dr. Dave!

    Looks like a two brothers hanging out in Colorado. Congrats on another successful trip around the sun!

    Actual Brunswick Gold Crown iii vs Brunswick Centurion review

    Any Marylanders ever been to the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge? Awesome place and they have a nice golf course apparently, but they have little respect it’s indoor cousin Pool. There are two tables there and I’ve never seen such shameful pool tables in all my travels. These things will sway back...

    What do you prefer to break with? Heavy or light?

    Those are the two shafts I use. 314-3 and the cynergy 12.5. I love the feel of the CF, no dings and the taper is perfect (basically non existent where I play) but I still haven’t found the tip I like for it. It plays fine but I’m always going back to the -3. The 314-3 with a solid water...

    Pocket size?

    I will jump in as well for the 4.5” on a diamond. I feel like that’s perfect unless it’s a pretty dedicated one pocket table. Even that’s still fine for 1P but tighter tables I feel safer trying to take balls out or attempting tricky stuff near the pockets.

    Which is best, forward balance or butt heavy cues??

    I used someone’s BK rush I’m pretty sure it was...as soon as I held it I noticed how crazy forward heavy it was (maybe just compared to my usual cue) but it no joke felt like energy in my hands waiting to explode and I broke extremely well with that thing. It may have been just mental but...

    Ohio Open, US PRO SERIES

    Absolutely. Poker got a huge boom when Chris moneymaker won a $40 online satellite to the WSOP and walked away with millions. The next few years the entrants blew up. Plus you got the characters. I love the pool stories. I don’t mind commentators talking shit about back in the day but a lot of...

    Ohio Open, US PRO SERIES

    We will see how this format evolves if they hold it together long term. Pool just isn’t really an interesting thing to watch for anyone but pool junkies and the barrier for entry into the realms of “competent” pool play is too high for most people to bother with. That’s only getting worse as...

    It’s a Billiard not a Carom!!!

    I’ve been learning Spanish the past year or so and it dawned on me how bizarre and cool language is. The meat and potatoes of it all is what we do with our faces and the rest of our body. Grammar, the alphabet, dictionaries..all that is just an attempt to capture what we do and put it down on...

    It’s a Billiard not a Carom!!!

    You could throw their respective #1 sides into the hat though. McDonalds has claimed ‘the worlds best fries’ since moses wore short pants but I’d beg to differ. They are good when crispy but don’t hold a candle to the stout fried potatoes employed by BK. I’ve always considered it a carom when...

    Ohio Open, US PRO SERIES

    That could end up being real drama if you had two players alternating BNR for a while during the tie breaker. Once you got to four a piece butts would be sliding toward chair edges. Maybe if no one gets up by 2 after a certain amount of OT games you could do a spot shot deal but that’s more of...

    Getting Closer to Launch

    The event that is getting closer to launch is “legends of straight pool” which seems like a series of streamed exhibitions or challenge matches that will take place on a table set up for it inside this private billiard academy. I was confused at first as well because I don’t have Facebook so...

    Actual Brunswick Gold Crown iii vs Brunswick Centurion review

    I get the excitement. I started playing at 27-28, I bought a house too small for my table and mask mandates kicked in at 32 so I stopped playing but before all that I played basically every free minute I had and stayed up too late each night besides. Now I’m back at it and find myself on this...
