    Well Done Allison

    I've been waiting to see this match. I saw the semi-finals then nothing (thanks ESPN). It was supposed to be on at 1:30pm and I accidentally caught it at 6pm. Being new to pool I have not seen Allison play that much. It was a thrill to see her climb back to the top!! I even knew about the...

    Cannabis, pool and life

    It sounds to me like the OP is a type that benefits from the effects of small amounts of pot. It's a natural substance and it's completely harmless. I don't understand the stigma.

    Change the weight bolt and increase the action?

    As far as I can tell, the balance point is quite important. Changing my Pechauer from 18.6 to 19.4 made a significant difference for me. Subtle, but sometimes that's all it takes.

    Partners question

    Interesting. I thought there might be established rules for this... Now I can settle this once and for all.

    Partners question

    There is always confusion about this among the guys I shoot with... If my partner wins the game, I break the next rack, correct? So does the player who got skipped, the guy who shoots after my partner, get to shoot next? Or does the guy who always shoots after me shoot?

    it just not a JOSS

    I played with a friend's Joss a few times that he was trying to sell. I loved it as soon as I held it. Get a pretty, high end Joss because that is what you want.

    Left eye dominant and keep hitting right

    I've always thought I was left eye dominant until one day when I was in dead stroke I froze after one shot and realized that my left eye was not over the stick, but my right. So my question is How do you determine which is your dominant eye? I always heard that if you put your thumb and...

    Did your cue have a name?

    My first cue was named Alice for 2 seconds before I came up with Malice. :grin-devilish: My new cue is a Pechauer so for now it's my Pea Shooter.

    Handicapping the ladies in tournaments.

    No breaks. The game is about focus, aim, and minor muscle movements. You can play and win, or you can't.

    Opposite eye dominance problem..Huge..........

    Hi Geno, I do have the cue very close to my body - Kelly Fisher taught me that. :) But I still find that either cocking my hips, or leveling my eyes, helps. I think that sometimes when we're too tense OR too relaxed, we're not conscious of how we're actually looking down the stick...

    Opposite eye dominance problem..Huge..........

    This may sound silly (wouldn't be the first silly post in this thread), but I have found that the easiest way to correct my left dominant eye over my right handed aim is to cock my butt towards the left when I am down on the ball - away from my stroke arm. It seems to pull my eye over just the...
