    This guy has a Cannon of a break!!!

    All seriousness, it amazes me how amateurs are always so excited about slop. It's like they think they accomplished something. It's comparable to winning the lottery and thinking you are a financial genius. Anyway, enjoy the video.

    Rio Hotel is SOLD!

    The Rio has been sold on September 23. Not sure what that means for the BCA in the future, but I think they are good for the next couple years. The WSOP will stay the property of Ceasars Hotel. It was bought by a NY company.

    Joe Rogan - "Pro pool players look down on bowlers"

    Yep that's his quote. I know he was saying in a half ass tongue and cheek kinda way, but I'm pretty sure bowlers are doing a lot better than pool players. Any comments, figures? Anyway, King Pin was a classic comedy. Maybe we need a pool comedy?

    The Fargo High Run?

    Mike, Have you ever figured a formula for either playing the ghost or high ball run to figure a fargo rate?

    This month Mr. 400 will try to break Mosconi's 526 record. Mid March 2019, 6 hours a day, 5 days a week for (how many?) weeks. I wish him the best of luck. How high will he go? It is supposed to be streamed live. Post a link here when it does.

    JAM, I was thinking of you when I saw this. I've never seen it, so maybe you haven't either. Enjoy. I guess you play without a shirt down there.

    Help me find this guy

    I was watching a video on YouTube recently and saw this guy with a killer break. I can't remember who he was, but here is what I think I know/remember. The video I believe was in the early 90's, I think he was playing Efren (shouldn't be hard to find right?). He was a heavy set guy, and I know...
