    $4,000 New RC3 or Tonkin

    Richard and Pete each make fine cues. The future market for existing cues is difficult to predict. I have always bought for personal interest and not for future value. If my cues don’t increase in value, I don’t care. I am happy with my purchases regardless. For $4K, you should really love...

    Ivory spelling?

    I thought that people were trying to hide their ads from searches specifying “ivory”.

    what are the biggest spots you've seen/heard of given?

    In the early 80’s, our local pool hall had a weekly 9-ball tournament that Kim Davenport played in occasionally. I was a C+ player. When matched up against Kim, I would get the 7 and 8 and 2 games on the wire in a race to 5. I won the match once.

    Bill’s cues are great players. I have owned mine for 25 years.

    Eagle Eye Takes Aim at 14.1 High Runs

    I never liked “Eagle Eye”. Maybe Jason should be “The Babe”.

    NY Times Crossword Puzzle 12/30/21

    Good for you. I tried to learn Go while I was in school. One of my labmates was from Taiwan who would play me. But he was playing at such a different skill level that I didn’t get much out of the experience. We would play 9x9 or 11x11 and each time I made a play early in the game, he would...

    NY Times Crossword Puzzle 12/30/21

    Many/most folks have heard of Sudoku puzzles. For me, they’re OK. Some are too easy and the Evil/Diabolical puzzles can be tedious to solve. So it’s not my favorite. But another puzzle that was brought to the US by Will Shortz is called KenKen. I prefer it to Sudoku. It is also a number...

He asked Will how it felt not to be invited to the editorial board and staff writers meetings when nobody in that...

    N I don’t know, but I checked my app archive and freds is correct. That puzzle first appeared on 11/26. It doesn’t really matter one way or the other. If you get it for free, good for you. NYT crossword is the best puzzle.

    Interesting. I subscribe to the puzzle on-line and work it everyday but Sunday. I thought it was the same puzzle as the print version. Rex Parker’s blog matches my on-line puzzles. Kate Hawkins was not the author of either puzzle in my app.

    Painful to watch. My step-father was a brilliant guy and one of those boyhood science wonders. As a kid he liked to perform chemistry experiments in the garage until one day when he blew the garage door off. He decided to switch interests and went into law.
