    What the F is going on here?

    I just turn on ESPN. The premier sport channel, and I am looking at a freaking Cornhole Championship. How the F can this be on and we cannot get a pool match on TV, This cornhole is about as exciting to watch as watching a turtle crossing a road. Surely a pool match of any kind has to be more...

    9 ball for pro tournaments

    Can some one tell me why 9 ball is still used for pro tournaments? Todays pros can easily run 9 ball racks. It's all about the break and then if have a good break, most pros run out fairly easily. 10 ball seems to be a much better test of skill. And so I can't understand why 9 ball is still...

    Table time pricing

    Balance question

    Has the traditional balance of cues changed over the last few years? I am not an expert on where the balance should be and therefore am asking this question so the knowledgeable people can answer. I believe typically the balance should be somewhere about 18-19 inches from the bottom. ( Guessing...

    Storing slates

    When storing slates for a very long time ( a couple of years), how should they be placed. Vertical, I am sure, but do they have to be absolutely perpendicular to the floor? Will a slight angle have an affect on them in the long term?

    How straight does a cue have to be?

    So I have seen many cues played by very strong players have a slight table roll. So when does a cue's condition (not-so-small-table-roll) have an affect on the playing characteristics. How bad does the roll have to be before you put the cue down. Does it matter if it's in the shaft or joint or...
