    A Question for "A" Players and Above - How to play when not in stroke?

    I have a question for A-players and above (A-players, Shortstops, Opens, Pros, Etc.): When you're in the middle of a set and you're just not quite in stroke, how do you find yourself playing the rest of the set? I sort of figure that if you're conscious about not playing your best, there are a...

    Hawaii - Big Island Pool Halls

    Hi- I'm going to Hawaii from the 20th - 20th. I'll be on the Kona side of the big island, but will probably make a few trips out to Hilo. Does anyone know of any pool halls on the Big Island? I'll be staying in Captain Cook, so anything near Kailua-Kona would be nice.

    Quitting Smoking and Its Effect On One's Pool Game...

    I'm quitting smoking, and I'm all agitated and fidgety after a few days without the nicotine. Any helpful suggestions from those who have quit, to remain calm and loose? I had a few practice sets with a teammate, and beat him 7-1, 7-2, 7-4. Despite the wins, and a few great break and runs...

    Take two weeks off... then quit. Who said this?

    This is a pretty famous piece of advice for those struggling at pool. I've heard it attributed to different people, but does anyone know the origin of who coined it or said it first? Or who made it famous?

    Amazing from WPC 2007! Reyes vs Kaplan shot!

    I tried searching to see if this was posted, and couldn't find anything. My apologies if it's been discussed already. This may be one of the most unbelievable series of shots on the 8-ball I've seen, certainly at the World Championships.
