Darn. I've got a 9 footer in the basement, and I'm too lazy to get the bridge. I've gotten pretty good at that type of shot. I guess I need to practice with a bridge instead.

Olhausen - replace cushions to help with rattle?

I'm likely moving and getting new cloth for an Olhausen table. I'm curious it going with a different cushion (artimis?) would reduce pocket rattle.

Sticking with a 9 footer...

Alright, I decided to stick with a 9' table. We get a lot of utility out of having such a big space that I can justify getting (or keeping) a table in the new house.

Now, I could use some help...

Moving - keep current or go new?

I'm moving and the buyers of our new home don't have any interest in keeping our current table. It's a 9' Olhausen, probably from the 90s, and one of their cheaper models (veneer in spots, etc). ...

losing space in a move - smaller table? bumper pool?

I have a 9' table in my current home. I love it, but it doesn't get as much use as it once did - mostly just my solo practice games. I will have limited space after we move in about a month. I'm...

Does anyone play '99'?

We used to play this game in my college league. I stumbled onto it a couple of years before that. I thought it was a great way to gauge your progress, and made it very easy to handicap.
