    Billiards in the Olympics instead of

    I'm all for it, the only problem I foresee is they most likely wouldn't allow the players to drink or smoke. kidn' [emoji38] Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

    Willie Hoppe cue

    If you like it why not. Of course I have no idea of the cost.... My dad and uncle bought these brand new in 1960 for $50. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

    Ralph Greenleaf - One of the greatest to play the game

    That was a good book with some very good pool history crammed into 106 pages, well worth the read. I doubt anyone could beat him when he was on a roll. He was one of the greatest. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

    Should I open a pool room?

    Went to a remodeled pool hall today, 13.50 per hour?

    I'm a former room owner, 10 years ago, 30 then 26 tables. I always say support your local pool room but most likely they will adjust as they have to sell table time, bar time as well. No money in food, that's more of a necessity. We had free pool in the daytime from 11 til 6 with a $6. food...

    Do I need a dehumidifier?

    46 is getting humid, no suggestions on which but I'll bet one will help. We always had a automatic one running in our basement and you'd be surprised how quick it would fill up. Good idea to put it over a drain if you can Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
