    RIP Scott Lee

    Sorry to hear this. RIP, Scott. I was able to take a lesson from Scott a few years ago. It was a good education, and I feel fortunate to have met him.

    $2077.14 Balls

    $95000. These tables and balls aren't marketed to pool players, but rather, to people who are simply looking for another way to display their wealth. Rich people buy this kind of stuff....because they can.

    Age Related Decline

    I don't think it's age so much, as it is desire. When you lose the desire to practice, to improve, and to compete, and simply want to get together with friends and hit some balls, then your game will go down hill.

    Interesting just saw this online

    Most people find it too much hassle to take a cover off of a table, and fold it up. Imagine if they had to wait for that thing get raised into place. They would either, never use that table, or, it would stay up all the time, anyway.

    Anyone Else Notice Seyberts Drastic Cue Price Increases?

    The price of wood has skyrocketed, the last 1.5 years. I think it has dropped a little in the last month or two, but we (the end users) probably won't see the benefits of that, for a while.

    Pool table lights.

    I have one. I think it's brighter than any other light, I've seen. Fit and finish is a little rough, but I'm satisfied.

    WWYD: Jump or Kick

    I guess most would jump here, but I can't do that, so I would have to kick at it. But In reality, I prefer a game that allows you to shoot any ball you want. Like bank pool.

    Tip - what Flavor is everybody using these days

    In the past, a SIB, or Ultra Skin. But, I really like the Pechaeur (I forget what it is called) that came on my Pechauer cue. Unfortunately, it looks like they don't make them anymore. Now they make something they call Jade. I should have stocked up on the old ones. :(

    Ha, ha. I think a lot of people don't realize just how much pilots (and flight attendants) actually travel. When I was flying for the airlines (I'm retired, now) I typically flew five, 3-day trips, each month. Do that for 20-30 years, and you have some serious time on the road. :)

    Good Books for Pool Players

    Along the same lines.... Charlie "Bird" Parker is considered by many, to be the greatest, or most influential, jazz saxophone player of all times. Many people believe he was just born with some super musical talent that "normal" people don't possess. But Jamey Aebersold (jazz...

    Good Books for Pool Players

    "Talent is Overrated", by Geoff Colvin. I haven't read it yet (just starting it), but a buddy read it, and recommended it. Some say it as a rehash of other books that cover the same type of subject. But if you haven't read any of those, it's probably worth the time.

    Bank Pool

    I don't really play pool (compete) with anyone these days, but I do have a table at home, and totally enjoy rolling the balls out on the table, and shooting whatever is there. And about 90% of my practice is shooting banks. It's all I've really done for the past several years. I don't believe...

    Test Your POOL KNOWLEDGE … Take New Pool QUIZZES

    94% on the terminology quiz. I got dyslexic and read one of the questions backasswards. I'm scared to try the physics quiz. I majored in physics, but that was 40 years ago, and I might embarrass myself. :oops:

    Another Classic photo: Fats and Willie

    A fun video of Fats. Skip ahead to the very end ( time 55:55), and watch Fats roll a ball down the table, and cut it into the corner pocket...over and over. He makes it look easy.
