    Maybe not a "living wage", whatever that is locally, but not true, regarding minimum hourly wages for tipped employees in all states must meet the minimum wage of the area when tips are included. If the tips don't get them to minimum wage, the owner is required to pay the difference between the...

    Legends Billiards & Tavern, Portsmouth, NH

    I am on vacation in NH and went to Legends. It is a nice place with good Olhausen tables. Unfortunately, as many Yelp and Google reviewers have found, if you are not a local regular, you are not treated well. Three of us were there for 2 hours and the waitress took great care of the league...

    What is the experience like purchasing a case from John Barton/JB cases?

    This^^ I bought a simple ultimate rugged that I designed with their online tool, paid, got the design approval email, then received the case. It actually came earlier than they quoted. The case is outstanding, well-built, and holds my cues securely.

    Earl on time clocks and extensions

    agreed. changing the game pace to suit you instead of your opponent is used in basketball, hockey, and other sports as a legitimate strategy. There is no reason not to try to gain an advantage if you do so legally.

    Jump Cues.....what's the best out there right now.

    +1 on the Jacoby. I was practicing with a friend's Jacoby jumper last night and it was very easy to get the ball off the table with accuracy.

    The Biggest Flaw of APA's Handicapping

    The APA greatness (or not) factor is largely a function of the league operator's attitude and actions. The L.O. can be amazing or can run off players faster than new ones can come along. My first team is now four teams, any one of which I would be happy to be a member.

    The Biggest Flaw of APA's Handicapping

    That is all built into the companies growth and marketing plan. It is a design feature, not a flaw. They want players to advance, forcing a team to split into two teams, then bring in new players to fill out the teams. Organic growth is achieved with little effort from the L.O. or St Louis...

    APA Question???

    We do this too...usually to break any tension or stress the shooter develops. My lovely wife usually tells players to get their head out of their ass and make the f'n shot. It is pretty effective, at least with our bunch of degenerates. You can't genuinely laugh and be tense.

    True enough. I break well with a CF shaft, but can't stand one on my playing cue. Maple rocks for feel.

    Cue stick modification community

    I found these guys at the Vegas APA tournament. They make moving mass cues with liquid and ball bearings and ball bearings in a magnetic sleeve. The hit is interesting, I'm not convinced it is better, though. I do like the forward weighted shafts, however...
