    What's your estimated fargo rating if you beat 9 ball ghost more often than not?

    Racking tricks and breaking trips will only put a player over the edge of beating the ghost if they are on the borderline in skills required to do so. Truth be told, the VAST majority of "serious" pool players, (not bangers), have no chance of beating the 9 ball ghost on any equipment. Look at...

    What's your estimated fargo rating if you beat 9 ball ghost more often than not?

    From your description, we are close in speed, and I'm a 555. I've beaten the 9 ball ghost I think about 7 times in my life, the best score being 7-3. Most times I play it I lose something like 2-7. My straight pool high run is 38 on a 9'. I get beat by 600 players, but I can keep the sets...

    Best CF Shaft for the MSRP?

    Predator. 30 years of proven quality and performance. Leader of the pack for low squirt cues. Their CF offering continuous that trend.

    Leonard Bludworth cue

    I have not seen any of his used cue's sales on here in 10-15 years. I don't think there is much demand for them. Maybe there is a local following in Texas.

    Rasson table for World Championships........................

    I don't mind the pockets. Only the rails. For all saying/thinking I'm nuts, this is a game I've loved from age 13 or so until now age 45. And for the past 20 years I've seen room after room, slowly at first, systematically ruin it for me with pinball rails. How can I not say anything?

    WNT side Pockets add 1/8''

    Wait, are we saying the corners AND the sides were both 4 1/4"? Sides are always supposed to be 1/2" bigger.

    Best Pool Player you saw alive, regardless.

    Best I ever saw and played vs myself was Patch Eye Henry when he was in his 70's. Wow, he really DID move like a ghost in one pocket. Of course I've seen the top pro's at the DCC several times. But for some reason playing against Patch Eye was to me more special.

    Rasson table for World Championships........................

    Well this is as good a thread as any. I went to a "new to me" room in Atlanta 2 Saturdays in a row to play in their handicapped tournament. Cues Billiards in Marietta. I loved the room! I'll be back for sure. They had mostly SAM tables, that were I'm guessing 20 years old. I had never played on...

    Rasson table for World Championships........................

    Ha! My big fear is that since the Chinese copy "everything" that they will get a Diamond and copy it exactly. All these years they've mostly copied various GC's.

    9-ball rule question about purposefully shooting OB(s) off the table

    Did he strike the CB with the cue-stick? If so, it's a legal strategy and creative IMO. If he struck the OB with the cue-stick, then that's unsportsmanlike conduct, should be a loss of game. I had a very weak player try that on me once, for the same reason, to avoid a 3 foul. I stopped him...

    2024 World Pool Championship

    Did you guys see the awards ceremony? The emcee interviewed Fedor first, then Kaci, then Fedor again. When he was finished with Kaci, and heading back to Fedor for the second time, Kaci says "hold on", and called him back. Kaci was on the mic again, and said "I won 2 World 10 ball...

    9-7. Kaci decided to play a safe on the 9 that everyone thought he should bank. It ended up working out for him.

    What is Gorst doing with his extension? It's on for half the shots, and in his pocket for the other half. I've never seen anyone do that. I also can't find a pattern thus far for when he plays with/without it. Its a short extension, maybe 2-3" long.

    That said, MR did a WAY good job with this. Doha was 1/10th the spectators. So a huge improvement. I am not as worried as I was when it was announced that it would be in Saudi Arabia for 10 years. I did not want another 10 years of Doha, regardless of the prize money.
