    No dispute that Efren is the GOAT, but who is the 9 ball GOAT?

    Hardships of Professional Pool as a Career

    AZB Reporting that Jeanette Lee is Diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer

    That is terrible. I really like Jeanette. My friend's daughter has scoliosis and was very depressed. I told her how a world champion pool player had it too and overcame it. It really helped. Jeanette is an inspiration. Prayers

    How is Mike Sigel NOT in Straight Pool Hall of Fame?

    I just saw who was in and for Sigel not to be in is a crime and seriously diminishes the veracity of the HoF.
