I like it, seeing Bugs makes it all worthwhile. He was legendary because he was a winner, coming up with shots like this if he needed to win a game. Take a good look at the hard shots on tape #3. No...

You get it Hu. There's gambling and then there's GAMBLING! Sounds like we've done both. :wink:

I have a lot of respect for Chris Bartram. I guess there's something I missed during my encounters with Dippy Dave. I found him to be crude and obnoxious. I also spent time with many poolroom...

Stu, I agree that the International is a great addition to the roster of pro tournaments held in this country, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it! What's wrong with a field of 100 of the best...
