    The REAL reason we keep losing the Mosconi Cup

    I agree with your points in the sense that the average amateur player is probably stronger in Europe than in America. This means that players who move up in the ranks are exposed to much tougher competition even at the local level.

    Billy Thorpe conceded with 7 balls left.

    it depends, if i know the person and am friends with them and know they wont care then i may concede an easy rack. but, regardless to me its kind of selfish to concede a rack to your opponent in a high pressure environment. those pressure moments are what make you a better player, so its kind...

    Center Ball

    eh i try to stay around center top-middle-bottom more or less. why use spin if you dont need it? just throws in more variables... although no doubt using english, especially a lot of it- is a learned skill, which is really useful. my default stroke tells me to work more from center ball, and...

    i dont think pool along with other cue sports have as much elitism as other sports like golf or tennis etc. its a game thats more financially accessible to more people. pool does have a certain respect for player's that transcend color. i think thats because physicality is not as pronounced as...

    The lack of professionalism

    definitely a ridiculous amount of flamewars here on the main forum... the other categories found on AZ are nowhere nearly as bad. a lot of really good information can be found on some of the posts here, but you've gotta sift through the cat fight posts to get to them...

    Is pool the most difficult sport for an Amateur to turn Pro?

    one becomes a professional boxer (and most of the time a pro fighter in general), not because of skill, but because they pay for that title and compete in the pro ranks... there are amateur boxers who represent their country and get paid by their country so they never need to go pro in order to...

    I played my first 3 games of one pocket tonight...

    I think 1 pocket is the only game that you're actually playing your opponent. In the sense that you can adjust your strategy based off of who you are playing by knowing their tendencies as a player. Games like 8,9,14.1 etc you're pretty much playing yourself and the layout of the table...

    Win or lose, Mark Wilson has pulled together a good Team USA!

    i agree, they need to keep mark wilson as the coach. team looks much more composed and determined than the previous years. you can definitely see a change in attitude... i like the addition of some youth, really has an effect on the veterans to perform.
