    Pool's last rites

    I have just finished watching 127 matches each with a maximum of ten minutes duration. What was interesting was that they freely borrowed the format and rules from pool and made them more appealing. The Snooker Shoot Out paid out $140,000.with winner Anthony McGill pocketing his way to a $50000...

    Lest we forget - mark wilson

    As controversy rages over Johann Ryusink's appointment as Team USA Mosconi Cup Captain, I think that we should spare a thought for his predecessor. Mark Wilson was not a failure. True, his three year tenure of the job did not produce any victories but his performance needs to be judged on a...

    DOUG GORDON:Four days have elapsed since the USA lost to Team Europe in The Mosconi Cup. Since then we have had a smattering of short threads, mostly from the clueless and few longer ones attacking all sorts of things like the referee, the commentators, Shane, Corey and MD plus the usual...

    US DPEN Time for a little Clarity

    There are players in Europe who want to play in The US Open but they have yet to have a proper update which would allow them to know the FACTS about what is going on.

But it isn't and he survives and continues to 'take the piss' out of the pool community...
