    Pagulayan brand chalk - TAOM formula

    Absolutely terrific product imo. I wish the cube were just a hair bigger because of the arthritis in my hands, every little bit helps but otherwise I love the stuff and couldn't be more impressed with it's performance. I've only used the green for what that's worth.

    Us 10 ball out of griffs ..nice reminder for the match room complainers

    It would certainly lower the percentage, how much is basically ALL VARIANCE and may be a tiny amount or a lot just depending on the sample. It’s worth noting that the breaker does choose the set with more balls more often than not so that’s evidence to suggest the set with less balls is quite...

    Us 10 ball out of griffs ..nice reminder for the match room complainers

    People need to stop talking about pocket size like it’s something you can just flip a switch and change. This event is played in a pool room. The tables are there before and after the event. The pockets are what they are. I guess I don’t understand “the game is too easy” argument. Every match...

    Templates suck. Randomness is a good thing.

    Us 10 ball out of griffs ..nice reminder for the match room complainers

    There simply are different kinds of events. All have merit. Added money should not be scoffed at. Promoters that have a place to host an event at 0 or very little cost are incentivized to host the event at that place regardless if you respect it or not. Griff’s is a great venue. It’s not a...

    Us 10 ball out of griffs ..nice reminder for the match room complainers

    There are + and - to every single thing in this world. Pool tournaments are not immune to that. Both fit in just fine. Every tournament and every venue is it's own living breathing thing.

    Player Auction Question / Opinions

    So many losers out there playing this game. What a waste of the players time(and money) to dump a pool tournament. I mean just buy a smaller amount than half, idiots. I’ve bought 1/10th of myself before when I couldn’t afford 1/2. I’ve not bought any. Whatever, I still bought into the...

    Player Auction Question / Opinions

    No and No. It’s gambling. There are inherent risks. And I’ll add that I’m completely fine with buying folks that don’t want to buy themselves, more for me when they win. I assume I’ll have the whole amount until they approach me. And when they don’t approach me at all, I let them know I’ll...

    Las Vegas Open

    So the more games you add to the length of the set the closer you are to winning the set. I mean, we aren’t taking about being behind 8-0 we are talking about being behind 3 or 4 games. Who reading this hasn’t won sets down 3 or 4 games? Also comparing it to tennis is extremely silly. A tennis...

    Las Vegas Open

    The players in the event knew what the format was and still chose to play so there’s that. But, yeah I’m sure every single one of them would rather just play a normal longer set if they were asked anonymously knowing their answer would never be released to sponsors.

    This is faulty logic and put quite frankly how losers think.

    Rule question..

    First of all, welcome! But to mr Jewett’s comment I’d like to say I wholeheartedly agree with him. And it’s not exactly “cheating” but can be seen as such in the eyes of someone looking for any little thing to complain about. And as others have said, you will naturally move on from this...

    Moving is of course important, I’m not saying it’s not. But being able to actually punish your opponent for their errors is the most important thing at ALL levels. Sorry it’s not really all that debatable.

    And ball running is the tip top number 1 most important skill in 1 pocket. Anybody saying otherwise just doesn’t get it.

    my 3 favorite pool players to watch

    I’m not going to say Efren even though he’s clearly top 1 all time watchable player. Just too easy… Corey Deuel, Alex Pagulayan and Earl just cuz you absolutely never know what he will say or do.

    Is the Simonis X1 worth it for cleaning the Simonis 860?? I read the instructions and it says to rub back and forth with the X1 to clean the cloth.

    I had completely forgotten about this thing, inspired by this thread, ordered one yesterday. Let’s go
