    Championship Vs. Simonis

    I had the Championship 30/30 installed last September, and it was really slidey for a couple of months. Was normal after that. I have the same experience, the 30/30 cloth is faster and does wear better than the Simonis 860 which came on the table when shipped. -dj

    When playing/practicing with a lower skilled player - Do you change your strategy?

    In competition, I never do. Anyone can win a game of 8 ball, much too easy to lose if you don't play your best game always. In practice, sure, it's fun to mess around. -dj

    Scott Frost's opinion about Predator tables

    You have to lift the slate to adjust the rail bolts?!?! That is insane-

    $30 for a piece of chalk...What's your favorite chalk to use?

    I bought V10 for home use Feb 2, 2022. It is over a year old and is barely used. Worth every penny, plus, cleanest chalk ever! -dj

    south west with a maple forearm and butt is a bad choice?

    I have owned a couple and hit with many SW cues. The hit was pretty much different in all cases. Some were stiff, some were very soft, some in between. As Bob noted, the shaft, ferrule, and tip have much more to do with the hit than the type of wood in the butt. -dj

    Why running English for multiple rails kicks?

    Most times I use no english on kick shots. I only use it when I have to widen or shorten the angle of the return off the rail- -dj

    Really not a fan of Predator "Arcrapia" equipment...

    I played on one of the 7 footers at the Tournament site at the Rio for 90 minutes and it played fine, although the cloth was slow in my opinion. I don't like the looks much, and think they are overpriced. -dj

    Las Vegas Open 10-ball

    I practiced on one of the 7 foot tables yesterday, and this is the case. The rails rebounded quickly, but the cloth was slow but didn't seem too worn. -dj

    Table light advice

    You can't go wrong with a Littman light. I bought one with no logo (table doesn't have one either). There are no shadows, and the light is high enough to not get in the way, plus the design diffuses the light if you look at it directly. Way better than a Diamond light in my opinion, plus it...

    2022 AZ Billiards Straight Pool Challenge!

    Ran a personal high 63 today, got a few lucky rolls for sure with balls that went from the pack after the break, and then missed a dead simple position on 63, left with a Kick/combination and a bank. Shot the bank and missed it. Then shot the table length kick/combo and made it. Oh, well- -dj

    2023 AZ Billiards Straight Pool Challenge!

    The highlight of my NJ pool life was the day that Mosconi gave an exhibition at Rutgers in New Brunswick. He ran 187. That night, around midnight, he met Mizerak at a pool hall downtown in the private room in the basement. Mizerak beat Willie, and Willie complained about the table the whole...
