    Gulf Coast weekend...

    My girlfriend and I took a quick trip down to the Gulf Coast. Played some pool at Buffalo's in New Orleans and Skeeter's in Biloxi. Both places were very much to my liking providing a great atmosphere for POOLPLAYING. I just wanted to give a quick shout out to the players and people I met and...

    Working for a living...

    I haven't posted in awhile. Some of you were interested in what would happen to my game once I started working. Well, it is dropping. I guess what I noticed first was, after a full day at work I don't have the stamina I once had. Being tired and fatigued affects most all aspects of one's game...

    What positive effects has pool had on your life?

    It seems easy to come up with ways pool has had a negative effect on my life. But, looking back, the things for which I blamed pool were actually my fault, my lack of ability or desire to control my inhibitions. The breakup of my first marriage, the breakup of my second marriage, my recent...

    The party is over...

    Well, after taking a year off from the job which I had held for nearly 25 years, I am going back to work tomorrow! Not with the same company, but with a different manufacturing company where I will be in charge of the shipping dept. During the last 12 months I have played alot of pool, spent...

    Action in Chattanooga!!!

    Well, maybe the title got your attention anyway... It sure would be nice to see some of you guys roll through here and stir things up in this sleepy town. There are some big bankrolls and some pretty good players here. It's been a long time since we have had a stint of good action. I'd love to...

    Old idea for the new age of pool

    Since poolrooms seem to be disappearing, I've been trying to come up with ideas for a poolroom that will actually work. My latest idea is a deli/greasy spoon type of business with a poolroom on the side. It's no secret poolplayers are not big spenders. They don't drink alot of beer or alcohol...

    Death of a pool hall

    Diamond Billiard Club, iin Chattanooga, Tennessee, has been dying a slow death for a few years now. Though the best tables in town still reside there, the place is a far cry from what it once was in its heyday. I can remember walking in for the regular Friday night 8 ball tournament only to find...

    My Turn...

    Well, after watching the Obama thread grow and spread like a virus and re-reading some of my own posts, I feel ashamed and embarassed. Not for anything I said, but for allowing myself to fall into the trap and participate in a political thread. Obviously, political arguments bring out the worst...

    Moisture Problem

    There is a poolroom here in town where I play league. Once a week, that's all I go there. Every time I'm there, the wrap on my cue becomes saturated with moisture. It seems I am the only one in the building who has this problem. Someone told me yesterday to put bees wax on my wrap. I have never...

    Time in Tunica...

    I was there from the 21st thru the 28th. Aside from the way I performed, the time spent there was well worth the trip! When the temperature in the tournament room finally reached a tolerable level (Wednesday) spectating was enjoyable. I wish the pros would have been in the convention center and...

    Southern classic in Tunica, question...

    I posted in the dedicated forum but have not yet received an answer. I understand that participants receive a player's pass allowing them to spectate the events while they are not playing. My question is: Is there a guest pass issued along with the player's pass which allows the participant to...

    Vengeance is mine!!

    Two weeks ago I was finally able to play some 1-hole against a local player I had been wanting to play for awhile. Maybe I was too eager... Maybe I was over confident... I don't know, but after playing 10 games I had failed to win even 1. Bad rolls? I believe a player creates his own rolls, so...
