    Shootout at Bank Shots...Illinois last night

    Patrick, That's the way most places used to be. And true, the majority of the people everywhere are OK. I sort of got that impression of Chicago when I was there for the MOT at Chris's. First 2 or 3 times Warren and I tried to get to the pool room, I would be winding through the clean and...

    R.I.P another Gambling legend.

    I think they stood for Restaurant, Billiards and Daquiris. Behind the bar they had like 10 - 12 frozen daquiri machines. Speaking about Lambert's - I played the Milkman there for 500 a game(most I have ever played for - individual game) on the pre-Simonis 9ftr there. You had to really stroke...

    R.I.P another Gambling legend.

    Flyboy - Jimmy Spears, should have been named Action Jackson. Always in action. I never heard anyone say a bad thing about Flyboy. We are losing to many old players.

    About to buy a custom cue, torn between three great cue makers

    No, this is a 2001 year model. The one I sold was a 1980 or 81. At one time I bought about 10 cues from this friend for $200. One was a SW sneaky pete. I sold it for $400. I had forgotten about that. After this cold snap I plan to start going to the pool room at least 3 times a week.(y)

    Weather check............

    Here in Weatherford, Tx - just outside of Ft Worth - 14 and snowing. Only one time in my life have we had such a cold snap. In 1983 we had 13 days where it did not get above freezing. Lake Worth froze over, remember seeing a Volkswagen out on the ice.. Have 3 inches of snow, expecting it to...

    About to buy a custom cue, torn between three great cue makers

    I added this to my collection yesterday. It is going to be my player. Had a SW in early 80's - sold it for $700. Best playing cue that i have owned. Hope this cue hits as good.

    The Driller!

    Sorry to hear this. There is not maybe a handful of people that I have played more pool with. Never had any arguments - just played pool. 9 ball. Gary was a hoot to associate with and just to know. Was a fellow Vietnam vet. We have lost a true pool competitor. What a character. RIP, Gary 🙏

    Should the live streamer have stopped filming Billy's match when the verbal back-and-forth began?

    JAM, I read in a much earlier post where the camera was left on for the action. No one was manning the camera or commentating. My personal opinion is that Cuetec has every right to terminate their sponsorship. I know that Billy is young and had supposedly been drinking. Hope he learns from...

    Beware of Scammer

    Is it the poster who represented himself as a pawn shop ? I bid on the Gina and the Bender. Got up next morning and Ebay removed any trace of the postings - no trace at all. I saved my emails in my miscellaneous folder in case someone needs proof of scam seller.

    Fred Guraino Passes

    Jerry, Did not personally know Fred, but was well aware of his support and promotion of the pool world over the years. He and Mary had a great room in Vegas. We are losing the old timers a little too fast.

    A Powerful Mental Attitude in Pool - Accepting Defeat

    CJ, I know exactly what you are saying. At the New Mexico State 9-Ball tournament in 1988 (?), I was in a match with Marco Marquez. I was in stroke, but I was sort of choking because of my opponent's reputation. I was down like 5-2. I just mentally told myself, win or lose, I was going to just...
