    Pool and Billiard Magazine fan poll

    Aw, be a sport, bring him some Chef Boyardee.

    Maybe this is the break that pool needs. Cornhole cheating...

    Stupid problem, easy to solve. The organizers provide all the beanbags, and Bob's your uncle.

    Cushion Billiard players in the Hall of Fame.

    They are all still active top players. There's plenty of time to put them in when they retire. And I'd add Fred Caudron, Dani Sanchez, and Marco Zannetti to the list.

    Paypal account limited

    The Constitution has nothing to do with it because Paypal is a private company. I think you probably said something in an "Aiming System" thread that PayPal decided was misinformation. They tried to sneak out a change in "terms and conditions" allowing them to fine users they claim posted...

    Tournament debaucle, what’s your opinion?

    I think that if the women, or any group, want to build something a good starting point is having clear rules and scrupulously following them. I don't really care what three other players agreed to - players should have no role in making rulings. The salient point is that the TD completely blew...

    Chess Vs. Billiards

    Advanced Real Analysis is graduate level as compared to Differential Equations, which are 2nd or 3rd year undergraduate level, so I'll stick with my Advanced Real Analysis comparison.

    Chess Vs. Billiards

    Chess is to pool as advanced real analysis is to arithmetic. When I was in college in the 70s a relatively low level not very well known National Master (well below Grandmaster) came to do a simultaneous exhibition, playing 40 games at once. The college held a tournament to pick the 40...

    It's not just us sandbagging!

    You do realize, I hope, that Ullrich admitted to, and was punished for, doping.

    It's not just us sandbagging!

    How is it that the judges, presumably experienced fishermen, couldn't discern the difference between the size of the fish and the weight of the fish? Look at the weights, wouldn't they feel them through the fish's body? And why wouldn't it be routine to open up the winning fish to check for...

    Tournament debaucle, what’s your opinion?

    A jury has to make their decision based on the evidence put before them. If you want a better decision, provide more facts and evidence. OP clearly wants agreement and his "evidence" skews that way.

    Best stroke fundamentals

    Yup, @Cue Alchemist read it the way I intended. Thanks to him and all who responded. And I hope we get more opinions.

    Best stroke fundamentals

    OK, thanks, but not quite my question. I'm asking about the overall stroke quality of the top group of players in each discipline, not individuals.

    I did see it, but thanks.

    Brunswick table?

    At the senior center I used to play at we had one nice heated Gabriel table that got enough use that there was a fair amount of waiting to play. They also had 3 5x10 Brunswick snooker tables, only one of which was used much. Turns out one of the Brunswick tables was a "convertible" that...

    Pool table to Carom table !

    For those of us who are old and have bad memories could you remind us about Syn-Surf? Also, any ballpark on the cost of the conversion and the degree of difficulty on the installation? Is it easily reversible? In the place I live now there's a clubhouse with 4 pool tables, only 2 of which...

    Best stroke fundamentals

    I'd like anyone with some expertise and a good eye for stroke fundamentals who watches a significant amount of top-level pool, 3C and snooker to opine which group of the top generally have the best and most solid stroke fundamentals.

    Would you go two tables or not??

    I went to the 3c World Championsip in 2016 in Bordeaux. I met and chatted with a very nice guy from the Netherlands. He belonged to a private user-owned billiard club that had both 8 and 10 foot tables. Players had to achieve a certain average (can't recall what it was) on the 8 footers...

    Would you go two tables or not??

    I'd even settle for a 4x8 carom table.

    Would you go two tables or not??

    Replace one of them with a carom table.
