    WPBL (Bonus Ball) - Live Stats

    Now that things are running smoothly at the studio (they fixed the streaming platform and I got the faulty a/v equipment replaced), I've finally had time to start working towards increasing production quality. One of the three main items that we're focusing on this week, is the live stats...

    WPBL (Bonus Ball) - Pocket Cut

    This was mentioned in another thread, so I figured I'd just start a new one.

I've...

    WPBL (Bonus Ball) - Hohmann 60 Ball Run on Youtube

Thorsten puts on one of the best performances any of us have ever seen, and Darren quoted this match as "some...

    In regards to Bonus Ball

    I've been too busy with damage control to check the forums this weekend, but I'm assuming things here are pretty bitter and negative. I just wanted to quickly make a statement or two. For one, I run the production company. I'm not a network guy, nor is that my job, nor is it that of anyone else...

    Venom Trickshots II (the TV show) - Photography

    Derby 9ball rack mechanics

    I won't include names, but watch how the player on the TV table racks the balls, then taps the head ball to ensure the head ball is tight. Sounds reasonable, right? Now watch what he's really doing. He's pushing the 1ball into the rack not to freeze it, but rather so that it indirectly...

    No more Mosconi Cup points - Teams to be chosen entirely as wildcards

    The new press release is out (not yet up on AZ), and Matchroom has decided to no longer choose the teams based on BCA points. All teams will be chosen by Matchroom themselves. Many of us knew this was coming eventually, but now that it's official, how does everyone feel about it? EDIT: I hate...

    World 8 Ball Championships - Ridiculousness

    How is it possible that Karl Boyes, the 2010 World 8 Ball Champion, isn't invited to this years event? The guy has a kid in 2011 and has an off year, and now he's not invited back? Karl is a friend, but this sort of thing shouldn't happen to anyone.
