    Name a pool hall you wish was still open today

    Paddy's 7-11, NYC, upstairs above the Metropole Cafe'. Every champion, hustler, short-stop and "civilian" passed through the doors of the "7-11". Ames Billiards, dark and classic. Became famous after "The Hustler", then quickly descended into a dive. Chelsea Billiards, elegant room when it first...

    Do you really think it would take that much, seriously?

    14.1 who would win?

    Both Filler and Gorst are in their 20's and in great physical shape. Playing the matches over one week's time shouldn't be too difficult for them. They would have ample time to eat, relax and rest. Also, because they pocket balls so well, I think the games should go rather quickly.

    Malvides Open 10 Ball Championship 2023 Topic

    Yes, I agree. Unfortunately, I was the "area" referee for that match. Boyes called a foul on Shannon. I only saw the incident moments after the fact on video. Boyes was technically correct, so I ruled that Shannon fouled. Boyes got a lot of heat for that. He lost in the finals to Kevin Cheng...

    Mika V De Luna Controversy....

    What if DeLuna's opponent was either Efren, Dennis, Busty, Lee Vann, Roland, Gomez, or Alex P? Would Jeffrey have called out any of them on this combo? I seriously doubt it because it would be shameful to a fellow countryman. But, against Mika, DeLuna thought he might get a call in his favor.

    SHIPPING...still usps after new $15 fee? How do you ship?

    Pirate Ship offers the "Box in a Bag" option, which could be cheaper than the box by itself. "Box in a Bag" cost is calculated on the basis of volume and weight. It can save a few bucks, sometimes.

    I may be driving to the Derby from NJ on Thursday, the 19th. Share gas and tolls. I plan to stay the entire week. If you are a non-smoker, looking for a 12-hour ride in a M-B C300, shoot me a private message for more info. FYI, I've made this drive four times in the past. Karl Kantrowitz

    At the 2022 American 14.1 players' meeting, we discuss the frozen/non-frozen cue ball situations in detail. When that situation arises, the shooter calls the ref to observe prior to shooting. This avoids any controversy.

    Hardships of Professional Pool as a Career

    Perfect response! The sport of pocket billiards continues to fund pool tournaments using players' entrance fees, plus a much smaller amount of added money. JAM is correct...only the 3, 4, or 5 top finishers can make a profit after expenses. Many years ago, I backed a world champion, a BCA...
