    Minimizing Cue Ball Movement Distance

    Whats your thoughts on this one? You hear that in 14.1, you should minimize cue ball movement distance to position on your next shot.

    The Billiards Channel: a thought experiment

    I like the tour of the Philippines. I have always liked to watch the Philippine money matches on Youtube not only for the pool, but for the atmosphere. I think that a pool hall around the world show would be a great show.

    14.1 Stats -- 2017 World Tournament, Round-Robin Matches, Oct. 2017

    A statistic that might be interesting, that I think you have the data for would be Percentage of innings a player plays a safety. It might be even in the published stats above in the thread. It would be interesting to see who the offensive players are vs the defensive, and if one strategy or...

    Zero-X vs. VEPS

    From the youtube excerpts I have seen, this sums it up perfectly Tor is more practical oriented, and Dr Dave more what and why.

    who won make it happen

    Efren is certainly the grand old man of pocket billiards, but I thought he came rather late to One Pocket? Maybe it was me that has just come lately to one pocket!

    One Pocket Etiquette - Potting ball off break

    Pretty sure I happened to see Frost rerack after making a ball on the Scott/Dennis stream. I am not a One Pocket player, so it made me wonder about the rule.

    Opinions? Should I have won this game or lost? League operator ruled against me.

    Not exactly the same but I have always played that if in Golf your opponent give you a "gimme" and you shoot anyway and miss, you miss.

    Wing Ball Won't Go? Magic Rack...

    There are no ball counters or Brunswick Labels on either end rail. Dont know if it came that way or this is an assembly of parts from a couple of pool tables. I will remeasure, as I could have measured wrong, and give more details, but its going to take me a few days...

    Chalk lines on table

    I have noticed the same thing. Always disappeared when I did my standard table cleaning - vacuuming, chalk off, and brushing. Assumed it was chalk, as it match spots that would show up when I rested my tip on the cloth, but might not be.

    Wing Ball Won't Go? Magic Rack...
