    Cynergy 10.5 also good for Pool-Billard?

    I would think that, if you aim the center of the tip at a particular point on the side of the cue ball for spin, a smaller tip will actually contact the ball a little further off center than a larger tip. If true, that could make people think the smaller tip imparts more english or is less...

    Reyes Cup/Mosconi Cup/Challenge

    I bet Matchroom would have mixed feelings about the Mosconi Cup being a semi-final to another event. I’d guess they would rather create another, separate event, maybe a Philippines Open?

    Predator WPA World Teams Championship (10 Ball), 8-12 Nov, Puerto Rico, Winning Team $120K

    It’s kind of amazing that there isn’t one USA woman above 700. Our highest, Jennifer Baretta, is 680 but I don’t think she’s playing (pro) any longer.

    They’re just like soccer shootouts, which everyone loves! *sarcasm* They’ve got to drop these shootouts. They’re a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist.

    Practice or Books Which is Best?

    Clearly, posting on the internet is the best.

    Reason for “expensive “ chalk

    I'm interested in this too. I doubt it, but it's definitely something you hear players talk about: "These new predator balls skid a lot."

    Live ball spin feedback

    Nate one issue that I’m wondering about is the weight/balance of the cue ball. I’m sure the electronics and battery are light weight in there, but how do you compensate for that so that the cue ball gets back up to the weight it should be, and how do you make sure there’s no imbalance?

    Mosconi cup wildcards

    In addition to Shane Wolford and Oscar, Billy Thorpe is another contender after being off the team a couple years. I‘d like to see Oscar this year, and the “second Shane” have his first Mosconi experience on US soil next year, assuming he has a good 2024. Filler is a lock for team Europe, in...

    Predator WPA World 8 Ball Championship 2023 (17-22 Oct 2023), Austria, Winner $75K

    I wonder if tighter pockets would solve most of the issues with this event. I don’t really think the break was the problem, it was just that, in eight ball, you’ll virtually always have a shot after the break, and almost always run out from there. The game is too easy for them, the break is t...

    Reason for “expensive “ chalk

    That is THE reason that everyone talks about as to why people use Taom. Occasionally you’ll hear people say they can get more spin; they’re probably the same people who say their carbon fiber cue gets them more spin. I have seen people who miscue more often with Taom, so that might be a reason...

    Not for banning players from playing in tournaments by pool’s best promoter?

    Congratulations Shane Van Boening World 8 ball Champion

    lol, if you’re that guy’s partner you’d need to stand FAR away when he shoots.

    Professional refereeing explained (prior to World Championships 2023 in Klagenfurt, Austria)

    Yeah, it’s one thing if a player shows up late in the morning because of oversleeping, but it’s pretty rough to give someone a penalty for staying in the frickin toilet too long.

    Congratulations Shane Van Boening World 8 ball Champion

    I’d bet anything the Matchroom World Pool Championship is his first place, US Opens are his second, and this is his third.

    I haven’t heard any context behind this. Is there any reason to believe it was a bad call?

    Matchroom Major event -Hanoi Open (10-15 October),Vietnam, Winner $30K

    Maybe, but when he missed, Shaw jumped up and put his arms up in celebration. That’s when Fedor conceded the last couple balls. Fedor confirmed that was why he conceded.
