    Learning how to win...?

    I play with a number of guys that have alot of potential. However it seems they don't "know how to win" if that makes sense. There seems to be alot of common mistakes that many of them make, things like jumping up and running to the table when they think they have an out, all crazy anxious...

    Near Mint Meucci SE-9 #530

    This cue had a wrap and refinish done by Ryan at Meulers/Rat Cues a few years ago and has not been played since. It's pretty dang near perfect for a 20+ year old cue. Rolls straight together and apart. Wood to Wood Joint. Solid maple shaft. NOT a dot shaft. Not sure of the exact year as there...

    Fancy Cue VS Playing Cues

    Props to Chris Nitti for winning the ICCS pool tourny druing the show last week. Not a shabby field , coming out on top over Mike Massey and some other notable players. Don't be fooled into thinking that these show cues are not great playing cues ! (Really just a thinly veiled...

    How would you play Lock N Load, 9 ball race to 11 games for the cheese?

    Trick Shot Magic...

    ... On ESPN right now. I swear I dont mean any disrepect or insult but.... Has this become the most embarrasing bastardization of the term "Trick Shot" in the entire history of the game? Bouncing rubber balls , rediculous time sequenced shots.... I mean stroke skill and any assemblance of...

    Aim Question....NOT AIM SYSTEMS. :)

    I honestly take no side either way on the staggering amount of aim system controversy that has ravaged this forum for such a long time now. I'm firmly in the 'what ever works' camp. The obsession with the topic however is pretty interesting, I pop in and out of the forum from time to time and...

    Best Set to prove winner ?

    We were have a little discussion while playing the other night. Basically the debate was over the best type of set to prove a better player. Some thought a long race , some thought an ahead set , some thought maybe a combination of those or the addition of a time limit. Some ideas thrown around...

    Reverse pool . . .

    Are there any 'standard' reverse pool rules listed anywhere ? Generally we play an 8 ball style but there seems to be alot of variations especiallly on the details (break, scratches, combos, etc). Anyone play ? Anyone know ? Thanks, Jay.
