    Mika V De Luna Controversy....

    What if DeLuna's opponent was either Efren, Dennis, Busty, Lee Vann, Roland, Gomez, or Alex P? Would Jeffrey have called out any of them on this combo? I seriously doubt it because it would be shameful to a fellow countryman. But, against Mika, DeLuna thought he might get a call in his favor.

    Hardships of Professional Pool as a Career

    Perfect response! The sport of pocket billiards continues to fund pool tournaments using players' entrance fees, plus a much smaller amount of added money. JAM is correct...only the 3, 4, or 5 top finishers can make a profit after expenses. Many years ago, I backed a world champion, a BCA...

    A young man I had never seen before walked into my local poolroom, picked up a house cue, threw out all 16 balls on a fairly tight table and effortlessly ran the rack. He did it a second time, and then a third time, without even breaking a sweat. Now, his girlfriend/wife comes over, says, "Hon...
