    I have a few cues that I use occasionally and they have their original tips. These are cues that aren't made anymore (Edwin Reyes). I'd like to update them to Kamui tips so that I could use them a little more rather than just have them as museum pieces. Will this hurt their value?

    Video Evidence of Opponent 3-Fouling Efren Reyes?

    Does anyone know of a taped match of 9-ball or 10-ball in which Efren was 3-fouled? I wonder what kind of odds I (or anyone else) could get to do that to him. It would be fun to try! I'd definitely have my 15 minutes of fame if I pulled it off!

    Overly enthusiastic bear-hugs can break ribs--caution!

    Poor Johnny. Hopefully Johnny held up well this time. Hatch should be cautious though as there aren't alternates should he take Archer or one of the other teammates out of commission. Disclosure: This post is in jest, although the threat is real (happened to a colleague of mine)
