Call 9 ball

I've played in tournaments where the 9 ball has to be called. In a small local tournament this can be a good rule. If you have low level players, it prevents them from just slopping in the 9 ball,...

Age Limits

I don't know the exact law, but I believe if you are underage, you must be accompanied by an adult in New York. In NY typically pool halls are serving alcoholic beverages, that's where most of the...

What I would like...

Murphy's Law

"Babe" Cranfield said that there was luck involved. There where some shots where you wouldn't know what was going to happen, especially on the break, some ball could hit the cue for a scratch.

Cranfield's 495 run was a exhibition in front of a crowd. That's my understanding. He said the crowd was responding to his exhibition, so he just kept on going. I believe it was on a 4 1/2 X 9...

Cranfield Runs

If the price of Slate wholesale for a 9 ft table is $200, then you're right. The last time I checked, if you bought slate, for 1 9ft. table at retail, it could run $1000.

Concrete ???

I was thinking that concrete may work. Slate was being used on pool tables before concrete was common. The early concrete I don't think would work.

In the 1980's they came up with additives to...

Steve Campana "Black Belt Billiards"

I was looking for Steve Campana's "Black Belt Billiards". I was having a hard time.

Turns out I was wrong. Steve's doing fine and had simply moved. I've got an order in. Thanks to Larry.

Try this drill. Put 3 balls on the table, start with ball in hand, and run them out. If you can do 3 go to 4, then 5. The better players typically look for trouble spots, and the look about 3...

Weight of Cue

I've found that a heavier cue smooths things out. I want to practice with a lighter cue, then switch to a heavier cue for competitive games. With a lighter cue I can see more of my mistakes.

I learnt how to use beads, when back. They work better than the Gold crown counters. It easy to see the score in total and for the current rack. Beads are the way to go.
