    Diamond dual polisher

    It wouldn't matter if it was patented. One of the principles of patents is to obtain a patent you have to disclose the invention. If it was patented, he could search the patent office records and see diagrams of the patented intellectual property. There is nothing improper about examining a...

    Funny pic/gif thread...

    I didn't "trigger." I'm in actual control of my emotions and am not offended. I get that you're trying to make a political statement in what I thought was a humor thread. I am still curious about which of the deplorable categories you are advertising. Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, or...

    Conditions to participate in the upcoming U.S. Open

    I agree with your comments. I felt the same way about some of Matchroom's earlier moves restricting and controlling players. However, in this case it's possible they don't care so much about controlling the players as using them as leverage. This could be part of a strategy to get total control...

    Conditions to participate in the upcoming U.S. Open

    Not likely. I think it is an attempt to weaken the other "U.S. Open" events. They already created scheduling conflicts with those events. They may be trying to weaken those events through methods like these in order to put them under or gain negotiating leverage to buy them out. Ultimately...

    Conditions to participate in the upcoming U.S. Open

    They could enforce by simply denying registration to future Matchroom events. That could be pretty effective. Individual players would lack the resources to fight it legally. And, it's unlikely pool players would organize and resist. It wouldn't matter if the clause is legally unenforceable if...

    How Do I Stop Scratching On This Shot?

    I have a good understanding of the tangent line and using it to predict cue ball direction. Execution is another matter. Just wondering if the circles had some practical application. For what it's worth, I can scratch from just about anywhere on the table!

    If You Love Straight Pool You May Want to Bookmark This

    Usually I can see the main page, which suffices for finding out about tournaments, etc. This one has me totally locked. Thanks Lou.

    SJM Sizes Up the World Pool Championship

    People who are color blind. Which I've heard different statistics on, but I understand is somewhere around 10% of the population. Each of the changes in the color schemes poses a different set of problems for me. One of the worst is the set that removes one of the numbers off the ball to be...
