    Dollar water pays off big at "Hanks" billiards

    I didn't think it was humor at all, I saw it as another dig at the owner. Why start up another thread for this unless this really bothers you? I see you guys "supporting" the pool hall all the time. You drink the free coffee or water all day and rarely tip your server. You're usually...

    A nit with sarcasm, that dollar must have really bothered you.

    Tiger's slide from grace -- is there a parallel in pool?

    They don't test for HGH and Tiger was linked to a doctor known for giving it to athletes. http://www.businessinsider.com/anthony-galea-alex-rodriguez-tiger-woods-drugs-2011-7 I'm not saying he took HGH, but there is definitely reason for suspicion. Too much muscle mass for his ligaments...

    great players from mexico

    I watched Little Sergio play a few times in Shreveport when I was a kid. He was always playing jacked-up one-handed pool. At that time I heard he was either the best or close to it in the world like that. Any truth to that?

    no more free water at Hanks

    Just ignore Neil like I did so I don't have to see his posts being quoted by people arguing with his ignorant opinions. Here in my town, the nicest pool hall was bought out by a chain. The place had been losing money for a while and would have probably closed down. The week before the chain...

    Idea for pro pool

    Very good ideas! Players need to understand for the bigger paydays down the road, they will have to put some work in and not just on the pool table.

    Idea for pro pool

    Sorry if this has been brought up before or it's a stupid idea but I haven't seen it. Most tournaments I've been to will add more money based on player attendance. This is great for smaller tournaments because enough weak players show up and spend money. For major tournaments the real money...

    if Pool is a sport, then define "sport'

    Huh? I guess you're going by a dictionary's definition of a sport and that's fine. But, is anyone playing a sport an athlete then? If curdling, pool, darts, bowling, shuffleboard etc... are sports I'd say athletes are not required. I'll concede that by definition pool could be a sport but...

    if Pool is a sport, then define "sport'

    If it makes you guys feel better about yourselves believing you're playing a sport good for you but don't accidentally look in the mirror tomorrow and see that beer gut hanging over your pants. I can play pool all day everyday and gain weight. You should have to break a sweat at least, and not...

    if Pool is a sport, then define "sport'

    You're not worth debating this with anymore. The word OR doesn't seem to be in your vocabulary.

    if Pool is a sport, then define "sport'

    Of course most tennis players are great athletes. Even if they aren't that fast in a 40 yd dash they have tremendous quickness. Many of them have a good vertical jump as well. Again, I said an athlete should have speed, strength OR quickness. Some of the taller tennis players who just have...

    if Pool is a sport, then define "sport'

    You're just trying to argue now. I never said someone has to run a 4.5 second 40 yard dash to be an athlete or bench 400 lbs. I just said almost NO golf players or pool players can whereas many other athletes in real sports can. I have the utmost respect for what hockey players can do. IMO...

    if Pool is a sport, then define "sport'

    Yeah, Larry Allen benched 700 lbs and almost had the world record despite having arms 6 inches longer than the average weight lifter. AND ran a -5.0 40 yd dash but he was a weaker athlete??? Almost all lineman can bench around 500 lbs. and can run -5.5 second 40 yd. dashes so try again. Not to...

    if Pool is a sport, then define "sport'

    Do you read your posts? You quoted me after about a speed comparison, not a strength. I said real athletes should have either speed, strength or quickness. Hockey and Soccer players might not be able to bench press 400 pounds but most could probably run a sub 4.5 second 40 yard dash. Hockey...

    They can run a 4.5 sec 40 yd dash though. Maybe you should read my whole post.

    if Pool is a sport, then define "sport'

    There are very few pool or golf players who could play a real sport that requires any test of strength, speed or quickness. They are not athletes, look at Darren Clarke, Miz, Buddy etc... If guys like this can win, it's not a sport sorry. I'd bet there's not 5 guys on the golf tour who...

    The Break - Ball in Hand after the Break and the Five Ball

    I agree with this. Bartram could give a lot of the lower tier pros in the US the 8 and maybe the 7 and Dennis Orcullo gives him the call 7 & 8 in 10-ball which is huge. He might be able to give Bartram more since he's won both times they've played.
