It isn't laughable, Ruth was the best, so far beyond his peers that it may never be duplicated. Nobody has even come close to Ruth's standards relative to the standards of one's own era.

That's correct. Customarily, if you move the ball you are jacked up over, or the ball over which you are jumping over or masse-ing around, it's a foul whether you are playing cue ball fouls only or...

Hawaiian Brian was a legend whose name I knew, but whom I'd never met, at least not until 2016.

I recall watching Brian introduce Rodney at the 2016 BCA Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The way...

Nobody question's Orcullo's all-around game, which is as good as anybody's, but the debate has been about nine/ten ball, and while he's good enough to beat anyone in the world, I think Dennis is a...

How very disheartening. Helena was a good friend of mine and I'll miss her a lot.

I was there for the match in which Helena made her presence known in American pool. It was, I believe, in 1994 in...

It doesn't imply that at all. It simply notes that he declined Chang's offer to bet high for nine straight days at the Derby.

Yes, one of the best players ever was one that almost never went on the road. He was George Rood of Ohio, and no end of top players came to Ohio to play him, with a general lack of success. Mosconi...

Visible nonchalance in the Shaw vs Woodward match, including numerous concessions of multiple balls at the ends of racks late in the match counts as evidence in my books. I've never seen this sort...

I could be wrong here, but I thought Efren also played in the 1993 US Open 14.1 event.

Efren was no Sigel or Mizerak at the game, but he figured out straight pool pretty quickly, and he played a...

I will have to defer to others on this. I didn't spend that much time in the action room at this year's Derby, just a couple of hours here and a couple of hours there.

What I can say, though, is...

That's a creditable and well considered analysis.

Yes, the La Quinta across the street is nice enough and a lot cheaper than Turning Stone. I stayed there once when they ran out of space at the host hotel.

Yup, would be nice to watch. Other than Karen Corr, though, who played in many Joss Tour events, I don't recall a WPA #1 ranked woman ever playing at Turning Stone.
