    8-ball, you are stripes, and it is your turn. I would like to see what other can come up with and then I'll share what happened to me. This was crazy, but it was too fun not to share. :) CueTable Layout

    14.1 Break Shot Diary - CueTable Style

    14.1 Break Shot Diary - CueTable Style CueTable 5 Pages OK, I did this on another thread and it got me to thinking. What if a bunch of us add a page or 2 to this and turn this CueTable set into a 14.1 Break Shot Diary or some kind of a how to kind of thing? I did these 5 break shots already...

    Rules question for most any game...

    I was just sitting here thinking and wondered... If a player (let's say they are playing 14.1 for our example) hits a slow roller to a pocket, looks up and sees, the pocket is full. Is he allowed to run around and take a few balls out before that ball gets there? AND what would happen to the...

    Donovan's Party Poker Pool Game

    I should have posted this game sooner. I had a party at my house on New Year's Eve night and not everyone was a pool player, if you know what I mean. So, I took the old poker pool game and fixed it to work for everyone. It was so much fun they stayed and would not stop playing until the wee...

    I got this from Steve's post on Look for the "Listen" button just below the word Billiards in the title. I can honestly say this was a real treat to listen too. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did!!!!

    ccn7's - When do you make your move...

    In another forum, our ccn7, posted the question about when to make you move. Meaning when do you go for the run out in 8-ball and he posed the question, do you play the table or the player.

    6 Steps to Improve Your Abilities

    I just saw a thread by lewdo25 on the 5 Laws of Practice. So I thought I might share my list. THIS is not new, innovative, or original, but it is the list I wrote for myself. I tried to write it so that it would work with most sports, but I had pool in mind when I compiled it into one list. This...

    Jay Helfert.....DAD?

    Donovan asks in his best Sylvester Junior's voice, "Oh Father, were you in Chicago, December of 1967?" I was looking at pics from last year's DCC, when someone in my family asked if that was me. I looked at who they were pointing to. It was a thumbnail pic of Jay Helfert just standing there by...

    My LASIK adventure.

    I got my right eye (the dominant eye) done on the 30th. They had a hard time getting my eye to dilate, so they ended up putting in like 20 drops in my eye. This is more than most people get. They use a device to pry open your eye and keep it open. It feels like a giant lens holding your...

    IPT banner on Mike still getting paid?

    I am really curious as to whether Mike is still getting paid by the IPT for their banner on AZ or if they just paid ahead? I don't really care either way that it is up there. It's not like we are the uninformed of the goings on. I was more curious, if they are still paying anyone out there for...

    My new South West 2006

    I'm not a photographer, but here are the only 3 pictures that turned out. I haven't chalked this yet, but a center ball hit has the best feel and I couldn't be happier with how this turned out. So without too much hogwash, here they are:
