    Danny "NIKE" Baugher

    Local player in the Orlando area since the Mid-80's. He'd be mid 40's by now. Not a champion, but a good shot maker, a solid A+ / low open speed gambler. We all called him "NIKE", because we literally never saw him wear ANYTHING besides a Nike T-shirt, which was like a uniform, for...

    1993 Archer Siegel video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfz7rpVBVjQ Just a great match in its entirety. Grady does the commentary, and they even mention Archer's 13 rack run in Chicago. Archer's pace is good, both play solidly, some great safety skirmishes and the rolls go back and forth. A nice little time capsule.

    Courple of cool safeties from yesterday

    Haven't been playing much, but got out to hit some for about 2 hours yesterday. I didn't play very well, but a cool style of safety kept popping up, or maybe I was just seeing it for the first time. Anyway, here's a couple of examples. Playing 10-ball. I was left this...

    Older Cue ID, Palmer? Viking?

    Guys I went to play league for the first time in a couple months and a guy had this, said he bought it out of a pawn shop for $20. Sorry for the crappy pics. The cue is in decent playing shape, and has two shafts. It appears to have those plastic veneers (wico?) and ebony points in a medium...

    Lost a tough match last night, the "right way"

    APA 9-ball league match NO PUSH OUT. So I am playing a 5, a very under-rated 5, who is running balls on this 8 footer like nothin! The no-push on the break is killing me. I keep getting hooked or kicked in and this kid will run 5-7 balls. Once I made three balls, got kicked in and he ran...

    goal reached.... ok, only a short set

    Headed back to school soon and having to walk away from the game again, or at least put it on the way back burner. A couple nights ago I was struggling, while chatting with a buddy, saying I was trying to get back in stroke just one more time and how before I had to lay it down again and focus...

    Paul Sumrall Full Splice - Old School

    Paul just sent me these pics of my "almost ready to ship" full splice. Gotta say, Paul was an absolute pleasure to deal with, got excited about the project and I can't wait to get some chalk on this thing!!! I wanted a REALLY old school look, and was leaning towards an ebony "titlist...

    Near Perfect League Playoff match

    9-ball league, local area playoffs, bar tables at the moose lodge. They count balls, there's no push out, three foul or jump cues. As a newly promoted "9" I have to get to 75 balls pocketed, the 9-ball counts as two. My team loses the first three matches, then puts me (a new 9) up against a...

    Best shot I ever made.

    I know, I know, it's only one ball. Ok, a two ball run actually. But it was a TOUGH (for me anyway) shot, under pressure, and I felt great for making it. Playing a KF aka POISON tournament last weekend, I was struggling, nursing a 1 game lead, and the clear underdog in this match. We're...

    B&R From League last night

    I just got moved up, and the other teams know it, so they are putting their veteran, seasoned 5's- 7's on me, making try to outrun the spot. There's a no push out rule, and for some reason balls on the break are hard to come by. Yes, I have tried everything from an 11mph cut, to a 26mph crush...

    Rules ideas for 9 / 10-ball

    I have had a couple ideas for helping make 9 & 10-ball "better". Now we can all agree 9-ball is broken, let's not argue that here. 10-ball is better, and rack your own & eliminating the "bottom two corners" for the 10-ball win is better. BUT: we all know how to sauce the rack for a 10-ball to...

    Georgia: where to play in Stockbridge

    Guys I am spending a week or so in 30281, Stockbridge, GA, basically SOUTH ATLANTA, and haven't seen a poolroom yet. We passed what looked like a converted pizza hut with some bar boxes, my brother said it's a dive. Help! Where can I play? Hoping for some tight 9 footers to practice on. Thanks.

    Le pro milk duds

    Why don't we see "Milk Duds" made starting with good ole' Le Pro tips? I LOVE the PING I get out of an (admittedly rare) good LePro. If the whole "dunk and clamp" process adds consistency and juiciness, this might be a great tip! I like the effect of my Elk Master based milk duds, but the hit...

    Harry Richards Player $595

    I was over at Harry's shop and he's ready to start taking orders again. For those who don't know Harry, look him up, great lineage, working with Wayne Gunn and Dennis Searing. Awesome hit, and attention to detail. I LOVE his taper, it plays stiff, but "feels" long in your bridge. I got him...
