Very confusing now to watch pool on TV, since viewers can’t read the numbers. Do the pros ever forget and shoot the wrong ball by mistake?

The traditional BCA rules stated that the game didn’t begin until the CB was struck with the tip AND crossed the head string. Thus a miscue on a CB that never leaves the kitchen on the opening break...

Or, you could just remove the bolt and cut it in half with a hacksaw.
For more precise adjustment, weigh it with a kitchen scale that measures in grams, decide what % of its weight you want to...

Back in the day, I used to join a regular golf ring game played on a 10’ snooker table, but using regular size pool balls. Epitome of frustration. You could be shooting straight into a side pocket...

I grew up ‘banging’ on large-pocket/slow-cloth tables, and as a result, I have always had a problem holding back my stroke. Since you can do so many more showy tricks shooting at ‘buckets’ (and...

Back in the 50s, many shoe stores had a fluoroscope you stuck your feet into to check shoe fit. I used to run in and play with it every chance I got (lucky my toes haven’t fallen off!).

A ‘push’ shot isn’t allowed under any circumstance. You MAY ‘stroke’ directly/level into a frozen ball, but I think if that ball is backed up by many others, you might risk a double hit (?), since...

Unless that rule has also been changed, shooting directly into a too-close ball isn’t allowed. Executing that type of ‘intentional foul’ likely SHOULD be defined as ‘unsportsmanlike like’ (?). But,...

The difference between a ‘push’ and a ‘stroke’ can be quite subtle. If the shooter is actually attempting a legitimate stroke, and technically executes a push shot, though unintentionally...

Has anyone noticed, the Diamond wooden racks are not perfect triangles. Apparently designed that way to allow for variations in ball size (?). I had to mark mine so position is easily repeated....

Not so much ‘cranky’ as puzzled. If the last ball is close enough to make racking risky, then it just seems as though one source of contention is being traded for another (I suppose no one has ever...

Never saw it done, and no mention of that procedure in the old BCA rulebook.

Common sense might dictate, if you allow your opponent to shoot before the balls are racked, you have essentially conceded the match. Same with ‘conceding’ the last shot.

Sounds like good advice. Now, if only I can overcome the unconscious childhood preconception of pool as mere ‘pass-time’, and remember the challenge to apply myself.
