As I vaguely recall, there was a pro players' organization at the time that demanded that the Sands put the prize fund in escrow. I think the Sands ignored them, but that's another example of the...

According to the density of Lucite, a 2.25-inch ball would be a little under 4 ounces. Maybe the floating hockey puck inside each ball is a weight.

I think that most of the attendees would rather have a room for $100 a night than $300. Most pool players are frugal. When the BCA (before the BCAPL) tournaments were at the Riviera, the players...

If the intentional push/double hit is permitted, how far into the rack is the player permitted to push? A reasonable amount? A traditional amount? Until the ref throws a bucket of ice water on him?
