    Mika's interesting shot

    Momentary stall on the cue ball with lots of spin. Mika plays lots of 3 cushion. You can use that stroke to change angle and get the cue ball to behave in a wild way, still predictable.

    Cesar Morales and Efren Bata Reyes.

    ivory ban lifted?

    If you want lots of Ivory in your next cue, perhaps a half grown elephant slaughtered in front of his family will provide enough for all the inlays, joint, Hoppe ring and ferrules. You know what makes nice white inlays? The teeth of cue makers that take a deposit and never deliver a cue.

    The best sponsor for pool?

    OK, I'm watching pool on tv...I'm new to this, so tell me why doesn't the guy shoot? He walked around the table and back. He's stroking the cue into the air towards the light. He gets down to shoot and gets back up. Did one of the balls move? What is a shot clock? Why doesn't he like the way...
