    Request From Long Acquaintance

    Hello, I dropped out of the pool scene a couple years back due to some limitations of cancer. It's hitting me pretty hard and cannot be cured but I can still use your help if you are willing. The current chemotherapy side effects have sidelined me and put me on disability which of course...

    A little help please

    Hello All, I have not been online or in the pools halls for about 3 years. The reason is that I have been fighting cancer and spending a boatload of time in the hospital. For some reason, when I heard about my friend Royce, I remembered a stash of billiard books I had made the decision to get...

    Another Great Invention for the Pool World

    I am sitting here thinking about pool and my problems with the shaft getting dirty making it more unconfortable to stroke and shoot the ball. Then it hits algae. You take a dirty shaft and spread blue algae seeds on it. This algae is very dry and slick and does not grow very tall...

    APA is Gaining a Monkey

    I just talked to an LO that I really respect and found my place in the APA. She is allowing me to come in as a 7/9 and said I am allowed to miss as much as I like. I think I am going to love it there.

    As Experienced Pool Players

    is it possible that we already know how to make the shot and where the cueball will go long before we actually "think" about it? I am guessing we do but would like opinions. Secondly, I believe active thinking can mess up a shot or leave as well.

    Ball in Hand Question

    I was hooked good and scratched shooting at the OB. I grabbed the cue ball out of the pocket and it slipped out of my hand, bounced on the table and fell right into a 5 lb jar of vaseline I carry to all my matches. I pick up the ball and place it in my opponents hand. Wasn't it good...

    My View of CTE

    I have played many sports and was able to play them pretty well. It always amazed me how many plays I could not remember I made even when somebody showed me a video. In a split second my body would react and the next thing I know the play was over. I always tried to correlate this to pool...

    Idea for Kamui

    Impregnate one of their tips with their new chalk and charge $75.00 per chalkless tip. When they actually do this, remind them they owe me 50% for the idea :)
