    I’m trying to I’d this cue and the value

    I’m not good at this ID stuff but the uneven laminates where the points terminate at the wrap may mean something. Maybe a “local” builder making a great looking cue. [emoji2369] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Funny pic/gif thread...

    Hard part is, now what appears to be left boob is actually right boob. [emoji2957] I’ve almost lost my ability to enjoy it. Front cameras drive my OCD crazy. [emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    "Freeze Out"

    Above is the way we used it. We would “freeze up” an amount of money , usually after the game had been made. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Using full spin

    Agree 100%. Spin over speed, almost every time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2024 World Pool Championship

    Gorst and Kaci have both improved their “shot clock” game. It was interesting to watch them go so late in the clock and still focus/execute the shot. If they used an early extension, it seemed like they used the whole extension, to the plan the whole table. Kind of like a “shot clock escrow” for...

    nine ball changes have changed the game

    I disagree. Pool is not currently broken. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nick Varner

    Today, being Nick Varner’s birthday, I have been watching Nick’s matches. What a player! What he did through the 90’s was impressive. It was a time that rivaled the success of pool, that we are experiencing now. Varner, Sigel, Archer, Hall and others made it a great time. Great players and...

    Anyone using Simones Green cloth?

    It has been years since I have played on anything other than blue, when out. But in my home it will always be green. Admittedly, it’s not a Diamond but it’s what makes a home table warm and inviting as opposed to commercial and bar like. IMO. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Chip Tournament

    The only rule about a chip tournament is, when you lose, you pay a chip. The chips available for each skill level depend on what skill levels are playing. Four friends in a basement will have a different chip count than a local tournament with 32 players with Fargo between 400 and 550. You...

    21st century sneaky pete???

    I still wouldn’t trust it. After 30+ years of playing with a great hitting cue, I don’t have another 30 years left to generate the same confidence. That being said, I would buy it and put it in the rack with the other dozen great hitting cues I have. I love ‘em all and can’t seem to separate...

    Jump Cue Recommendations

    I’m a big fan of the the Propel but not sure $300 will buy a new one. Gamble up the $300 until you have enough to buy a Propel. It’ll be fun on both ends of the purchase. [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cue value?

    Since we’re talking about RP, are you sure you don’t mean Thumper’s mom? [emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Why do pros rarely use the dart stroke for jump shots?

    I can’t speak for the pros but for me it is far less accurate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    WWYD 9 Ball Mar 31

    Choices seem to be combo, bank or carom. The combo seems most predictable so that’s what I’m going with. From there, I evaluate the situation again. Too unpredictable to go any farther, for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    league play

    Had just enough bourbon to reply to this. I am 63, to give my statements perspective. I know two players, who have recently quit league to pursue tournament and gambling. In our area, that mostly means tournament, since most all the gamblers know each other and the locals speed. Crazy thing...
