    Shreveport Pool Scene

    My job is sending me to Shreveport again for a couple weeks, and I got a few good responses last time I was sent there, and I posted here asking about where to play. I am hearing that Bill Schick's has closed, as well as Secret's, but Side Pockets is still going strong. Any other places...

    10 ball push out in NAPA

    A question came up the other night in a game of 10 ball (NAPA rules) about the push out. Player A broke dry, Player B then wanted to know if he could hit another ball besides the one ball, and have it still be a legal push. Much discussion followed. Here is the rule as per the current NAPA...

    Cool Bar Box

    While out and about one weekend, we stopped at a local place for some lunch and found this table in there. It wasn’t in the best shape, and needed new felt and probably cushions too, but I thought it was a pretty cool frame. Anyone ever see one like this?

    Shreveport, LA

    My job is sending me to Shreveport for a few weeks. I looked and found a few places where I could play on Google Maps, but I'm wondering if anyone here might have some input on where to go or maybe what nights might be better at said places. Thanks in advance for any advice.
