    Need to improve AZ Billiards Forum Search Engine

    I tried to find "Center of Cue Ball" on the search engine and the result omits the word "cue" and "of" as being to common. So all the results are based on "ball, center". This obviously is NOT what I wanted at all. Also I do not see a way to search for an extact string/phrase like above...

    Who needs closed bridge anyway?

    After reading some of the thread about teaching a closed bridge, I got to thinking about the real need for a closed bridge. I use a closed bridge on many of my shots. Is it because I learned how to play that way? Is it because my stroke is not perfect and I need something to stablize it? But...

    2,000,000 + Balls. How many....

    balls have you hit? I have heard a couple of references to pros having hit 2,000,000 + balls minimum. I really have no idea, but after some thought I would say somewhere between 1/2 - 1 mil for me. 2,000,000 balls equats to approximately 202.94 games of 9 ball for everyday for 3 years ... and...

    Push Out Question

    This guy was getting the 5,7 and last 2 last night. The opponent made his 7 ball on a push out. The guy getting the spot said the ball was to be spotted, so an argument sorta broke out. The opponent said that where he was from it was legal and the 7 was not to be spotted. Normally we play...

    Using an iPOD while playing...

    How many of you use an iPOD while playing your matches? Does it help/hurt your focusing abilities. I watched Larry Nevel play 10 ahead a while back and that iPOD ran all the time. I've tried it at home and really like it, but when I'm playing a match somewhere, it becomes distracting.

    Maintain high level of play

    Just wondering what you do to maintain a high level of play throughout an entire tournament weekend. I find that I play much better during longer matches or several sets that are back to back. But sitting around waiting for the next match to start is a problem.
