    The Queen's Gambit got me wondering...

    So if they can adapt a novel about Chess into an incredible series, wonder if they could do the same with pool. We all know that Walter Tevis wrote the novel for Queen's Gambit and he also wrote The Color of Money novel... would be cool if they did a series based on the Color of Money...

    Another ethics thread!

    This is a scenario that happened to me once in a local tourney. Fortunately I caught myself before fouling. Playing 8ball where if your opponent scratches on the break, its ball in hand behind the line. Any other time, it's ball in hand anywhere. I don't play much 8ball but I knew the rule...

    Has anyone matched ring work on a revo yet?

    ...I know there have been plenty of them converted so far, including my own. Curious if any cuemakers ventured into matching up rings on them yet?

    Any trouble with Kamui Black Softs recently?

    The ones without the clear pad. Used these tips for years and have always had the same person install them and recently I started having some trouble with them. About 4 months ago I had one installed and it gave a loose sounding hit, like there was something wrong with it. Cueball didn't...

    How many times have you seen this? Bad math at the pool hall...

    To answer my own question, more then enough... Player A and Player B are playing cheap sets and are generally friendly so they know the other isnt going to air barrel them so they normally settle up when they are done, but they keep track of how many set wins each has, accurately. Let's they...

    JB Case arrived. 2x4 Butterfly w/ Backpack straps. Pics Inside.

    Miserable Night at the poolhall...

    Just wanted to vent... I remembered why I never go to the poolhall on Thursday right around 10pm last night... So I normally hit up my local poolhall once a week, mostly on a Wednesday but couldnt make it on that day this week so I went last night. I forgot about the crew of Verizon...
