    Top 10 Reasons to Use an Open Bridge

    You're assuming Dave, by evidence of the highlighted word, 'probably.' Most of the, 'New' blood in 3C comes from the, Korean country, and then from South America. I'm talking about players under the ages of 35. If the instructors in these countries thought that, (in 3 cushion) an open bridge...

    Cues being made at Bensinger’s, Chicago?

    I'm an alumni of Bensingers since 1963, I can tell you with 99% certainty this cue was NEVER made at Bensingers 60 years ago. They had no cue repair/builder on site! They sent all work orders out to, Herman Rambow on Wabash st. in downtown Chicago. Lastly, I believe this is an old style...

    Craziest shot you ever performed

    A tough 3C two and out In the 90's at a tournament in South Florida, I was playing a player from NYC, his name was, Sixto. Going to 50 points, we both needed 2 points. If I win the game, I win the event, if I lose I come in 2nd place to Carlos Hallon. This is the position I faced to try and...
