A couple of places in Little Rock have 1 or 2 nine footers.I really prefer big tables,won"t be playing 1 pocket on a bar box. I did see a place called...

    Old match

    I watched an old match..K Davenport vs J Mataya. It was nice to see a game with not a lot of fussing over the racks and pretty fast play. Kim even broke with his cue...a gus if I am seeing it right. I had spoken to him at a tourney in Tulsa when I noticed we had the same style of cue from Gus...

The shafts are all consistent..beat up and warped.I would think a decent sneaky could be made with these. I will happily send these to anybody that asks ..I would like a sneaky...

    Favorite shaft

    I have a great Bob Owen Bushka tribute cue. It came with 2 shafts of course. I played with one for a couple of months giving no thought of using the other shaft. The shafts are the same ...weight,size,tips and ferrules. I decided to play the unused shaft one day and I did not like it as well as...

    Big Spot

    I play the same guy nearly every day at our rec center where I reside. I like 9 ball so I normally give him the last 2. In a race to 9 he will get 2 or 3,mainly if I hang the 9. I tried something different the other day...he could shoot any ball as long as the 9 was last.I still rolled over him...

    I may have learned something today

    I was playing one pocket today at our rec center and I was hitting them pretty good.I made 4 3 railers in about 10 games or so.I must have not impressed this older guy watching me. I think he saw all these shots I did not make and did not know I was playinfg safe. He wanted to play 8 ball for 5...

    I played pool today for the first time in 2 months. I was pretty rusty.Played 9 games of 9ball,broke and ran out twice...start BIH each time after the break.I normally run out about 6 or7 times playing that format.I think bearing down and focusing was difficult.I played some banks for a bit ,had...

    personal best

    3 weeks now since I have picked up a cue, It is the longest I have gone without playing in over 20 years.Not too happy but we are still healthy and are trying to be safe.:

    Old school

    Was playing some one pocket by myself for an hour or so and was really having a tough time bearing down so I tried something I had not played in a looking time.. Cribbage ,played 5 games and ran out 2 of them.😁It was really pretty challenging.
