    Why do pros do bar box tournaments? Serious reply's only

    7-ft tables probably outnumber 9-footers in the US 10 to 1. And tournaments run on 7-footers probably outnumber tournaments on 9-footers 5-1. If they want to play in tournaments, they’re going to play on some 7-footers.

    Yeah I’ve noticed that some of the players are playing with the speed and approach as if they’re really in stroke. But they’re all kind of out of practice, and it’s going to take a while to get back in the zone. Right now they‘re going to have to slow down a little and play more conservatively...

    Honestly I hate to see Boyes/Appleton win. They were put in at the last minute just to fill a bye.

    Revo 11.8 or 12.4?

    Pivot point doesn’t mean that you’re actually using a pivot for english, it’s just a measure of deflection. Higher pivot point = lower deflection. You’re right, and I think a long bridge (i.e., a long pivot when using english) would reduce accuracy, because any little movement in your back hand...

    Yes, there was no reason to stand by the call. I think Matchroom has a policy that ref’s calls cannot be reviewed. Something similar happened with a call in the Championship League Pool - it was called a bad hit but it was an obviously wrong call, and they said it could not be reviewed. I...

    They were using the beeper in the beginning of the tournament. Any idea why they stopped using it?

    How Does?

    It could also be that the cue ball landed on the 8 in such a way that the 8 jumped up, hit the 9, and kept traveling forward. But I don’t think it would be going forward that fast.

    Had Foldes been living in the US at one time? He was in a lot of tournaments in the US for quite few years.

    How Does?

    I think the cue ball landed on the 8 a second time.

    I know ventilation is good, but those look like TVs with video of fans spinning. :unsure:

    Just monthly or yearly. Remember they’ve got the World Pool Masters in 2 weeks and then the World Pool Championship after that.

    Tony Annigoni suicide

    This thread should go. Make a new one and let’s leave out the details of his death and the negative commentary.

    Tony Annigoni suicide

    I hope you got permission to publicize the details. There are very good reasons why they usually are not. ”He passed away” should be enough for people who aren’t in touch with his family personally.

    Tony Annigoni suicide

    The news doesn’t usually give details of a suicide, which is right in my opinion. If you want details talk to the family.

    can use break app, etc. to determine draw stroke speed?

    Like others have said, anyone can hit hard, but can you hit it nice and low and accurately? A soft draw is important because you’re more likely to make the shot; if you need to hit it really hard when you draw, you‘re more likely to rattle the ball.
