    European Tour-another Mika

    Believe the stop is in Holland for this one. Billy Thorp vs. a young Mika Van Berkel. Only a 40 minutes march, but very enjoyable. Hoping we hear more about Mika in the future. Hell of a straight stroke.

    A magical time yesterday

    After a year away from the table due to covid shutdowns, I was becoming disheartened. The previous trips it was like I'd never held a cue before. But today, it was different. Near the end of hours of playing, I finally caught a gear! Started out my usual terrible...felt like I couldn't make a...

    1996 Seniors tour

    Steve Miserak vs, Toby Sweet. First time I'd seen video of Sweet. Billy & Grady their "feuds: Anyway..hell of a match. Triamgle rack, maple shafts, no fighting about the rack. Loved it! Just great old time pool. Anybody here with memories of Toby Sweet? One hour, 45...

    Silly Question

    But I'm going to ask it anyway. Prompted by the thread about top pros dropping out of a tournament over a sponsorship dispute. Has anyone here selected their playing cue mainly because a pro uses the same brand?

    Jean Balukus Vs. Ewa

    Old video..poor focus & sound. 1987. I wonder if Jay remembers working this one? Glad I found it. I'd heard lots about Balukus, but never saw her play. JEAN BALUKAS vs EWA MATAYA --- 87' Classic CUP --- WOMEN's FINAL - YouTube

    I'm sure I'm late to the party. Surfing the web for matches, I came across this. I was impressed with this young gun from of these years, I think he'll make the Europe Mosconi Cup team. He's already a force to be reckoned with. Here he is vs, Albin...Strickland commentator...

    Old Match..Reyes/Archer

    I guess the virus thing has a sort of silver lining. Watching old pool match videos, I found this gem of archer/efren, both in their prime. The old winner breaks format, it ended in a hill-hill thriller. The last rack a defensive battle like I've never seen. The announcers got a bit annoying...

    One for Jay Helfert...

    Jay, weren't you around Modesto when Kim Davenport played? Just finished watching this thriller between Kim and a young Johnny Archer. Had to be slower cloth than used today. The different equipment sure didn't lessen the drama of this one. Glad I found it...

    You'll never get better...

    ....unless you play for money. Don't know how many times I've been told that by people wanting to "play for cheap". I tell them, that's okay, that I enjoy being a low level recreational player. Then I add if they really want to play for money, I could call my honorary nephew. (He's no...

    Silicone wrap?

    Another posting board I go to had some of the bicycle guys raving about this stuff. Then I remembered some of the weird looking cue wraps used by Earl, SVB, and others. I wonder...

    Not pool related

    But good enough info that I hope the mods allow it to stay. How to make a face mask using a shop towel. No sewing needed..
