That IS pretty crappy payout for something that's billed as "US Open". It's great for a local or tour event. It's a $600 entry fee, plus hundreds of dollars at least in flights and hotel. Maybe the...

This is basically the APA rule except for the last bit. In the APA you can't choose directly, but it's open until you legally make a ball.

My mistake, but yes as you said, the same rule exists there. I think a similar rule exists in almost any competitive venue serious enough to have a written rule book. Even the APA has the same rule.

I wouldn't go so far as to call it poor sportsmanship, but it's not what I would have done in this situation.

That's exactly what a hustler would say after throwing a few games at low stakes. I'm not saying you were trying to hustle him, but if he doesn't know you well he has no way of knowing that.

Assuming a hard leather tip and an 18oz cue, about 13mph. Maybe about 14mph with a phenolic tip.

It might be possible to verify this with one of those apps that measures break speed along with...

Yes exactly, and I figured out what the cue velocity should be from my equations and found that it closely matches the experimental data mentioned in Dr. Dave's video. It seems the forces at play at...

Yup, it's 2019, so of course things have to devolve to calling someone "elitist" followed by childish insults because they disagree with you.

The fact that cue speed drops by about 40% actually is a very good indication that the weight of the arm doesn't contribute meaningfully to the impact. Given a cue that's 3x as heavy as the ball and...

Do you know if they published a high-speed video of the hand holding the cue at the moment of impact? I suspect one would see a lot more movement than one would expect, even with a death grip. I'm...

A solid grip would be better IF you were still able to still strike the ball at the same speed and still hit the head ball square.

Let's say you have a super solid grip and the effective cue...

This is a good point, I'm assuming a light grip so the effective weight is close to the actual weight of the cue. That said, the weight of the cue isn't as big a factor as people think it is. Like...

u_cue is the initial velocity of the cue, i.e. how fast the cue is moving at the moment it strikes the ball. So if you strike the ball at 10mph it will be travelling at 13.125 mph, if you strike it...

I agree, you need a different technique than regular shots, but my point was you need as much care as you do with other shots. I see a lot of people just wind up and focus more speed than aim.
