    Anyone Else See The PCSL Pool Match on ESPN?

    it was awful hard to imagine the meeting where the concept was approved when it fails I think it will reinforce TV's decision not to air pool, truly a shame maybe if they could get Joe Rogan to do live analysis of the Mosconi Cup or some amateur 8 Ball finals there might be a draw but with...

    Two playing cues used in the same game?

    one school of thought is to eliminate as many variables as you possible can variables you can't control: - table set up, cloth, speed, rails, pockets - balls being clean, dirty, poor quality, mixed sets, brand - environment being quiet, noisy, bright, dark, hot, cold, humid variables you can...

    Two playing cues used in the same game?

    the concept is that for full hits golfers use one "swing" the same swing on a highly lofted 9 iron produces a high trajectory, less distance and more spin (throwing a dart) whereas the same swing on a 4 iron produces a lower trajectory and much greater distance (playing to an approximate area)...

    George Breedlove

    I believe he got hit in the eye by a rock from a lawnmower in a freak accident at a driving range that took him out of top form. I'm sure someone out there has the details.

    What Do You Look For in a Pool Instructor

    I have had lessons from numerous individuals ranging from top name instructors you see on this website to Pros that do lessons on the side. I found 2 basic approaches: instructor style #1 had a lesson script and nothing was going to get him "off script" including my level of play, strengths or...

    Ball movement and accuracy - 12.5 vs 12.9 diameter tip

    Just to put this conversation into perspective, the difference between 12.5mm & 12.9mm is less than 2 one hundredths of an inch. Any variation in radius shape between the two tips is far more important than the diameter.

    Should accuracy lines be drawn on pool tables?

    the "spot marker" is there for more than marking the spot. During your break on the 1st ball the cue ball bounces on the way to the rack & typically hits the lead ball above center which drives the ball into the cloth. Do it enough without a spot sticker and you will end up with a hole in the...
