    Just curious. What is the purpose of sleeving a joint. Weight reduction/looks/different material/hit factor ? I would think the joint would hit like a solid piece of whatever the inner structure is made of. thanks.

    back it/jack it ??

    What's the point of back it/jack it. Since your hill-hill, why not just win the next game and the next set. I never understood the advantage or the allure of back/jack it when you get to hillhill gambling. I rarely gamble though, so perhaps something I'm missing.

    Weight ?

    What does (in nine ball) getting the 6 and last 2 mean ? besides that I suck at 9-ball. Does the last 2 include the 9ball. or is it the last 2 on the table NOT the 9ball. What if I made the 7,8 on the break. Is it then just the 6,9 or 5,6,9 ? thanks 2AO
