    Gold Crown pocket question...........

    Years ago at my old house I had a Brunswick ‘Viscount’ with 5 1/4 pockets and alway wanted tighter pockets. Now that I’m much older with poorer vision I would love to those old pockets on the Viscount again.

    How much to rack my balls? In pool. I am serious. Not a joke.

    Think of how many arguments could be avoided by having a neutral entity (the machine that swoops down over the table and racks the balls like in bowling) rack the balls for both players. Of course the marching could be set for the different rack configurations, 9 ball and full 15 ball rack for...

    How much to rack my balls? In pool. I am serious. Not a joke.

    In bowling years ago they used to hire pin setters, with all the technology available today I’m surprised some enterprising person hasn’t already come up with an automatic ball racker as did bowling!

    Average number of games before a table should be recovered?

    I read Babe Cranfield say that cloth on a pool table plays fastest either when it’s very new or very worn. I think there is some truth to that. I remember playing a tournament once on a table with cloth so worn you could almost see the slate and it was by far the fastest cloth I ever played on...

    Predator Pool Table

    It had better not be it, no one but Bezos or Gates will spend that kind of money for a pool table.

    Ralph Greenleaf - One of the greatest to play the game

    It’s funny I have that book although it’s been a while since I’ve read it. Great book and well researched as I recall.

    Ralph Greenleaf - One of the greatest to play the game

    That part I hadn’t heard of, but being much younger I’m sure Willie could have handled the driving and eliminating the chances of getting a DUI had Greenleaf been at the wheel!

    Ralph Greenleaf - One of the greatest to play the game

    Yes I think you are correct, I have that book somewhere in my collection and it’s most likely that it came from that source.

    Ralph Greenleaf - One of the greatest to play the game

    If I remember correctly about that famous ‘road trip’ that the older Greenleaf and the young Mosconi took (I forget who was the sponsor but it ended up with Greenleaf 57 and Mosconi 50 or something like that. The interesting thing is that most of Mosconi’s wins came toward the end of that trip...

    Ralph Greenleaf - One of the greatest to play the game

    I read in one of Babe Cranfield’s books that he also thought Greenleaf was the best of all time. He said that Greenleaf was a master of limited cue ball movement, so much so that he said Greanleaf could run two racks and not hit a rail once.

    “The Hustler” #2 Best Sports Movies

    He got robbed when not getting it for th Hustler, it will be said that he got robbed for not gettng it for other movies as well, think Cool Hand Luke, being just one. The Color of Money wasn’t all that good of a movie, and although Newman was good in it it was by far not the best performance of...

    Was my GC3 installed correctly?

    That is a possibility, just one more indication that this ‘mechanic’ didn’t really know a whole lot about doing tables. We’re still waiting to see what the upshot is with this guy.

    Babe Cranfield

    I would have loved to have seen him play, unfortunately it sounds like he played most of his life on the east coast. I think he was a man of high integrity, it was said that he actually called a foul on himself during some match play when not even the referee saw it. I believe he probably did...
