    I did not enjoy general admission. But I am very interested in attending if they have assigned seats.

    Silly BCA eight ball question

    Frank, This happened to me. I made all 7 stripes on the break - was hooked on the 8 - and kicked it in. This was "you are what you make". If it was "open" after the break, I would have tried to run out. It was the strangest break have ever seen. All stripes and no solids!!!

    Should we change the rule of One Pocket ?

    I agree. To blast balls off the table is too ugly for such a beautiful game and should not be rewarded. imho

    Does the Score Dictate Your Shot Selection? Should It?

    Nick Varner was the most aggressive player, when behind, I every saw playing nineball. No safes - total aggression. He was dangerous when behind and had many come from behind wins with that style of play. But, playing onepocket, he was a very conservative player when behind. (The Wedge) He...
