    Which major tournament would you choose if you could only attend one per year?

    I have attended the Derby from days of the Executive as I live only 2 hours away which makes it more desirable for me. Just went to my first US Open Atlantic City. I have to agree with Stu and his remarks with these two. Hope to go to others in next few years and then re-activate this thread.

    Another one of those posts that make you cringe but here goes: idea for game variation

    I do not know the actual measurements. They offered two and I chose the thicker. Rough estimate is 1/4. I am sure you can call Diamond and get exact specs.

    Shimming A Diamond

    I bought shims from Diamond and put them on the TV table that I purchased at the Derby. The pockets measure a little heavier than 3 7/8. I notice a thud around the points and or jaws and does influence banking on tight shots. My ball pocketing has improved and actually my game. I think the...
