    Hope you're doing well, RJ. Since Trump lost, and we split the first two $100 bet conditions, you owe me $100 on this last decider. Let me know when to expect it. Thanks!

    First 15-0 match win in league!

    I've played in this modified BCA-rules league for over 20 years, which is over 40 seasons, and at 18 matches a season, more than 720 matches in total. (Some seasons I played two or three different nights, with another 18 matches each night over the season, which I leave out of this total since I...

    Brown's Billiards is in the Holly Hill area around Daytona. 1595 N. Nova Road Holly Hill FL 32117 It has ten Gold Crown IIIs (all with approx. 5 inch pockets), one 9 foot higher model Gandy (single-shimmed, about 4-3/4" pockets), one Gold Crown IV (tripled shimmed), and two Valley bar boxes...

    Earl banned by Pat?

    I heard something happened in his last match with Niels, which I didn't see. Checking later, the chart showed his score at 8, but also an 'F' for forfeit. So I'm not clear if Niels finished it at 11 and then the situation happened, or if it happened before it ended and Niels was awarded the...

    Coin-op Diamonds at US Intl. Open...

    I noticed all the tables on both sides of the floor are coin-ops. Regular Pro/Ams, just coin ops. I haven't seen the correct side to see it, but I assume the tv table is, also. The answer I got it is that they'll be available after the tournament play is over for the night for the players...

    Know of any places with Russian Pyramid game tables?

    I'm familiar with most pool halls in my part of the state, and none have that 12 foot super tight pocket table. I'm just finding out about the game, and I'd like to play it or watch some people play it. I've only seen Earl on YouTube so far. Are they any around where you are, or that you know...

    Most balls on 10 ball break?

    I don't play 10 ball much, mainly playing 9 ball instead. Nor have I seen much pro tournament 10 ball for comparison. I've recently started playing it more with a certain opponent. The other day, I made four balls, including the 10, on the break. That's my personal record to date. Yesterday I...

    B-I-H fumbled off table into a pocket-- ref call?

    This happened to me in a casual game, and I realized I had no idea what the rules would say should be done. My opponent was placing the cue ball to take his b-i-h shot, and manipulating it with his cue shaft. He pushed it toward the side pocket, and it went in, not touching any other ball on...

    Late head ball roll off???

    I was waiting for my break on my table, and my opponent put the rack in place and walked away from the foot of the table. I guess around 20 seconds or so had passed, and as I set up for the break, the head ball rolled forward noticeably. Usually if it occurs, it happens immediately, so we...

    5 men and an apron, lol!

    When I play on Gold Crowns, I usually wear an apron since otherwise the aluminum strip on the rail gives me a wide soil mark on my lead leg pants' thigh area, like Christopher Walken's character had in Pool Hall Junkies. This is more an old school practice dating to when people wore slacks to...
