It would be great to have a photo gallery of the Glenn collection. I think there are over 50 Bushkas in there. I found a couple of videos on youtube of the collection. One video has Denny Glenn...

Very sad to hear this :cry::cry::cry:. Joss Wests made by Billy are the best playing cues I've ever had. It's because Billy was not just a talented cue maker but an excellent player, too!

Does anyone have any dvd's of Willie Mosconi

I recall watching his matches with Babe Cranfield, Fats and Jimmy Moore from 1982 ESPN Legends of Pocket Billiards. I think he beat Jimmy in the finals. I donít think I still have the tapes but would...

Iíd throw Paul Drexler and Mike Lambros into the mix. Their build quality and feel is great, thatís probably why you donít see many for sale on AZB

Iíd go with Schmelke. They supply blanks to many a cuemaker and you can actually build a cue to your specs on their website for around $200. Best bang for your buck, by far and large

I went to London for a bachelor party and accidentally played Imran Majid!

Hurricanes at Kings Cross is more of a bang-the-balls-around-have-a-drink type of joint.
They have some of the worst tables I ever played on. That table with the light-blue cloth (the one they...

It probably wouldnít have happened if he didnít get an extremely lucky roll on the nine either. :) Sigel blasting the balls is no excuse, though. It clearly shows the difference in attitude and...

One of the best examples of the elbow drop technique is Ronnie OíSullivan. He drops the elbow on most shots, not just power shots. Donít think anyone would dare to criticise. To each his own I guess...

On reflection, giving (or delaying until pocketed) one of the pocketed balls to the non-fouler could also be considered. This is a double whammy as effectively results in a two-point penalty (-1 for...
