    RIP Scott Lee

    He was that, Heath! He helped me with my game and was such a champion of our sport. I'm sad.

    Brunswick Anniversary Dimensions needed

    Good morning all! I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! I'm looking for someone with a 9' Anniversary to give me some dimensions of the base. I've just moved to a house in the city (Richmond VA) and my table, which is currently in storage, will be moving to the basement as soon as I create...

    Open Letter to Mr. Behrman re: US Open

    Dear Barry, I just got back from the 39th US Open and the pool matches I saw, especially the finals, were among the best I’ve ever seen! Every year, I’m blown away by the capabilities of these players from around the world. That’s not what this letter is about, though. This is about the future...

    Blog Post about a Pool Room

    All, I started blogging a few months ago, on a variety of topics. In addition to pool, I also spend time cycling, playing golf, woodworking, and making music. The blog was created to allow me on more place to cut loose. (My wife calls it yelling at traffic. What can I say, she knows me.)...

    Brunswick Anniversary Question

    Happy New Year to everyone! I have an early 1950s Anniversary and it was converted to drop pockets back in the 1980s, according to the lady from whom I purchased it. The pocket liners feel like rubber or some kind of similar composition, slightly soft in texture. I'm not sure if they're...

    Ball Return Brunswick Anniversary

    I'm looking for information on an Anniversary. I bought it about 3 years ago from a lady in Baltimore who had purchased it 20 years before from a shop that refinished it after pulling it out of a pool room up there. During those transitions before me, the return system disappeared. If I want...

    Bad rolls - what's your definition?

    One of the players on my 8 Ball team (BCA league) and I were talking about bad rolls last night. His contention is that he gets more than his share of bad rolls and it's very frustrating to him. I started thinking about this and wondered what constitutes a bad roll? For example, I can...

    Cue Tech Pool School - a Review

    Spent the past 3 days in Pool School with Randy Goettlicher and Scott Lee. This was a traveling version of the one that Randy holds in his school in Dallas TX. This one was in Diamond Billiards in Midlothian VA, just outside of Richmond. Nothing like 9 or 10 hours a day of Pool to brighten...

    Old Brunswick Parts

    Hi guys, I have a Brunswick Anniversary that was originally a return table but is now set up with drop pockets. I'd like to change it back. Can you recommend any web sites or dealers that sell parts like this or will I have to manufacture something myself? Any help you can give would be...

    Pool Keno Board

    Anybody ever seen one? A friend of mine asked me last night if I could make one as woodworking is one of my other hobbies. Described it as a board that lays across the rails of a pool table, covering the playing surface at rail height from about the spot to the foot rail, with a ramp up from...

    My US Open

    Finally got some sleep and feel like passing along my thoughts on the Open. This was my 5th year staying for the weekend and it was far the largest crowds I've seen. Nice to see a good draw of spectators. The usual vendors were out on the midway and appeared to be doing a decent business. As...
