    Straight Pool?

    In Accu-Stats e-mail notice of the coming U.S. open I see no mention of straight pool. Nor have I seen any mention of recent or pending tournaments. Am I looking in the wrong placeses? Dave Nelson

    Leaving In Fall for Wisconsin

    Young Man: I love the game of pool, but my advice to you is put pool on the back burner for 4 years or so and maximize your educational opportunities. Bum is a word that describes a good pool player with no education or culture. I wish you the very best but the choice is yours. Dave Nelson

    Whats your favorite book?? which should be made into a film??

    Thanks Lynch. I've been saying that for about 10 years without raising many comments. I don't think pool players read much. The Hustler was a good film but it would have been even better had they stuck closer to the book. COM was a good book but the film was mediocre. I would like to see...

    I don't get how he trim it with a penknife?

    I know this will seem like a horror story to all you good people, but. I don't have a lathe. I rest the shaft on a solid surface, rotate it by hand and bear down softly with a fine file. It takes a while but it works well for me. Dave Nelson

    God is not going to help you win your match!

    Years ago when I was in the navy I used to hear guys praying in the chow line after they got their food. The most common prayer was, "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and always". Didn't help. Dave Nelson

    I played a match today with a young lady who is fairly new to pool and very new to straight pool. I had to play her 90 to 50. A formidable ratio for a low level player such as myself. I won the match by the skin of my teeth, 90 to 43. My advice to this young lady would be, pay attention...
