    USA vs Europe: past, present, and future

    I think it is funny that the US thinks that we should just be able to pick up a pool stick and practice "x" amount of hours and that is all it takes to be a pro. If a person does practice "x" amount of hours and is still not a pro then it is pool's fault. Pro football players, baseball...

    USA vs Europe: past, present, and future

    My son will read this post and it will drive him even more. He already practices about 4 hours Monday - Friday and plays in tournaments all weekend. He practices on a 9' table with 4" pockets (diamond from the US Open). It seems that Fargo is behind on a lot of junior players. We do not have...

    Mosconi cup times

    Pool (snooker) is a big deal in other countries and companies buy commercial spots. This is what makes if "free" to the fans in that country. US can not sell enough commercial spots to make it free to the fans.

    America vs Rest of the World

    3 people in your club over 650 and 4 in your city that are plus 700. out of how many pool players? Those people deserve the credit for how hard they worked to get that fargo. If you were to say to them it is not that hard to get to 700, i am sure they would tell you that it took them years of...

    America vs Rest of the World

    You dont think it is terribly difficult to get to 700???? How much fun does that even sound like for any teen???? practice 12 hours a day all summer and breaks from school??? Just like the pros do, they practice maybe 20 hours a week. If somebody wants it bad enough even if you have a full...

    America vs Rest of the World

    My point was that when SVB was in his prime, Germany (Filler), Russia (Gorst) and Spain (FSR) had some teens that were around the 700 Fargo Rate. League players dont just wake up and say i am now going to play like a 850 FR.

    Outside Pro Players in Billiard Magazines... Who on AZBilliards has articles in Local Newspapers or Local Magazine Written about Them??

    After my son came back from BEF Junior Nationals the local newspaper did a page 2 article on him. The reporter actually did her homework.

    US young guns at Wisconsin Open

    Sam prefers not to play in junior events. He will go to local junior events and help them though. Typically a pro event or a higher added money tournament is going on at the same time. He likes to travel to play in pro events.
