    A question about UMB World Cup scoring

    Example 1: In some world cup events, if player A breaks to start the match and gets to the winning score total and player B ties the score, there is a playoff where each player breaks and scores as many points as he can. The player that scores the most points in the playoff wins the match...

    USBA Calendar Question

    Why does the USBA calendar still not show the 2016 Verhoeven Open August 1 - 6? The UMB calendar shows the tournament on these dates as does I find this curious, especially since it is the premier 3C event in the US and the only tournament that draws most of the world's...

    I am interested in attending this tournament as a spectator in 2015. The phone # listed for Carom Corner Productions on their web site no longer works and calling Carom Cafe was not productive either. The event is not scheduled yet on the USBA, UMB web sites or on Kozoom. I want to find out if...

    My new custom Schuler by Jacoby 3C cue

    A few months ago I had Brandon Jacoby of Jacoby Custom Cues build a custom Schuler for me based on my own design and specs.
