    Efren's favorite game: Balkline

    So, Efren Reyes' favorite game is 18.1 balkline: Efren Reyes IPT Challenge interview with Inside Pool Magazine (I skipped ahead to 2:36 in that link to the part where he mentions different games, but the rest is interesting as well.) I love how there's an edit in the video after he mentions...

    Position from recent game

    What would you shoot in this position?: Click for CueTable diagram (yellow ball is shooter) This is #6 from a run of nine that I recently posted here on YouTube. It's usually bad to leave a ball in the middle of the short rail because it's frequently difficult to play off of it as a 2nd ball...

    Nice Caudron solution from Mexico 2007

    I just watched some youtube videos from the 2007 Mexico world cup. One of the is a casual game with Caudron that's fun because he's free-stroking quickly with no pressure. Here's a CueTable diagram of Caudron's position at 0:45 in the game: CueTable diagram of the Caudron shot See if you can...

    FS: Set of Joe Villalpando's 2 Pool I.Q. DVDs

    I didn't like them, but many people on this forum think very highly of them. Maybe somebody here wants to save $20 on a slightly-used set instead of buying them new? Officially, they are titled: "Little" Joe Villalpando's Pool I.Q. (Vol. 1): Kick Shots and "Little" Joe Villalpando's Pool I.Q...
