    Chris's Billiards

    I just got back from Chris's Billiards in Chicago and it was fantastic. The place has the slightly grimy feel of a pool room from a bygone era, I played Larry Schwartz of Billiards Digest some 9-Ball, and watched Chris Gentile playing 3-cushion (!). I've been to pool rooms with nicer decor but...

    snooker, pyramid, carom cue makers and pool cues?

    Does anyone have experience with pool cues from cue makers that specialize in other disciplines but also build pool cues? For example, John Parris is known for snooker cues but also builds pool cues, as does the pyramid cue maker Efremov. I'm curious about how a pool cue from one of these...

    Info on Stalev at DCC?

    I couldn't find any info on the forums about Stalev's reappearance at this year's dcc. Can anyone give an update on how he did? He seems to have finished in the running with the big names. Is he still playing as sharp as we remember him? Was he in action this year? Any info would be...

    Russian Pyramid runout

    I've never seen a video of anyone running out in Russian pyramid before seeing this guy: They are playing with a variant of the rules where if you pocket the (black) cueball on a scratch you get ball in hand and get to drop a white ball. First to...

    The old forum days

    Does anyone remember how wild the forums were a few years back, maybe before azb dominated? rec.billiards and the billiardsdigest forums had profanity, insanity, Fast Larry, and real-time accounts of shady gambling sessions. I started reading those forums when I first got into pool and they...

    the L drill

    I've been practicing the L drill is driving me bananas. I seriously believe it is easier for me to run a rack or two of 9ball then to do this drill. A few questions: is this drill considered "easy" for good players, meaning that a pro or a skilled player such as the instructors...

    Cue and stroke

    Although pros largely stick to the fundamentals of pool in regards to stance and basic stroke mechanics, stroke action is a highly personal matter. Two examplars of polar opposites are Earl Strickland and Efren Reyes. Watching Efren, he has an extremely loose stroke, tantamount to throwing the...

    Daryl Peach and glasses?

    Before this year's WPC I always saw Daryl play in glasses. I know when I switched to contacts my game took a huge jump. Does anyone know if Daryl switched to contacts or had corrective surgery recently, or if he played part of this year's WPC in glasses? Maybe the change helped bring his game...
