    Everything's bigger in Texas

    This is at the Billiard Den in Richardson. Really nice place…nothing bad to say about it, just commenting that it is almost exclusively 8 footers and large pockets….something I never saw in socal.

    Everything's bigger in Texas

    I'll give Stixx and Stones a try...a little further away, but seems more like something I would enjoy more than my current choice.

    Everything's bigger in Texas

    Recently moved to the Great State of Texas, and have been frequenting a local pool hall. Great place, plenty of quality tables and really close to where I'm staying right now, but the pocket size...wow. I checked them all...same size on all of 'em. Pretty sure they are just a bit over 5"...

    EARL STRICKLAND Returns to TEAM USA

    I'm not kidding when I say that this is a great pick. I am very excited to watch him play. He is the most talented player on the team except for maybe Shane. He just cant focus for long races in long tournaments, but a race to 5? Gotta be one of the best in the world still.

    New method for installing inlays

    As an FYI, I certainly wasn't suggesting it actually be used in today's modern cue market. I just thought it was a cool video, and needed a way to find it pool related to post.

    tip technology - hardness at center different from hardness at edges

    I believe Jaden's 'On Target' tips utilized some of these ideas (I can't remember if his were soft center or hard center). Not sure if he still has those tips anymore, or if I have him confused with someone else.

    US Open 9-ball updates thread..

    Not sure you know what a 640 looks like, but what I saw from Trump was not it. I think he is around mid-700s with his current experience level. We'll never know what he is capable of, because I really doubt he does too many of these. If he is a 640 with that stroke, then the rest of us are...

    Corner ball goes straight in every rack, WTF!!!

    Nothing has been said specifically over it that I've seen, but to me it is quite a good move. Templates greatly increase the odds of making a ball on the break, and greatly reduce the amount of clusters, both of which lead to quicker matches. With a 256 player field, match times could quickly...

    US Open 9-ball updates thread..

    At this point, Trump could win the entire tournament and some of you will still remark on how terrible he is, and that he is a 550 Fargo at best. From what I've seen so far, he is one of the stronger players in the field. He struggles with deflection a bit, but is getting better, and is a...

    Age Related Decline

    I feel like I can play just as good, if not better than my prime, but at age 53, it is becoming more and more difficult to maintain focus for long periods of time. I used to be able to focus for hours upon hours playing onsistently at my highest gear. Now I can play even better, but I can't...

    Long sets poll...............

    I prefer races to 15ish on the big tables, but on a barbox, I'm looking for long races. I'm not impressed with a B&R on a barbox, but I watch those to see how many they can string together in a row, and that can only be done in long races. I'm looking forward to Shane and Dennis this weekend...
