    Trick Shots in Regular Play

    Hi GeoEnvi, I'm nowhere near a pro player, and far from even a regionally competitive player, but I've always enjoyed going for the miraculous shot.

    What's up with the cueballs at the U.S. Open

    Scott is saying that the cue ball used during his second match was NOT a red circle NOR a measles ball. Perhaps he is referring to the Super Aramith Pro cue ball with the Aramith logo on it. From Facebook: (Below picture not from Facebook)

    Ugh. Sorry, I didn't know that about Edge (I don't have it yet). Looks like it'll have to be Firefox, Safari, or (dare I say it) Internet Explorer.

    Chrome won't work with the chat room. If you're getting that message in Firefox, Edge, Safari, etc, then you probably need to install Java. You can get it here. It's a pretty quick install. Hope this helps, -Blake

    Odd 9 Ball Rule

    Yep. Whatever this peculiar game is, it is clearly not 9-ball. Call it goof-ball or wacky-ball but don't pretend that it's 9-ball.

    Ko's final shot on the three ball? the masse jump?

    Oh pfff. Ko shot it, and it was posted in HD, and we're talking about it now. It was a nice shot, no matter who shot it. Nothing extraordinary but still a nice shot. And yes, I was rooting for Shane. ;) -Blake
