    My BCAPL Vegas Experience

    The good and the not so good... The good The rooms were nice! I expected a small kitchen of sorts but that was a small issue. Refrigerator held plenty of beer and water and kept both very cold! I liked the life sized pictures of players as you walked down the hall just before the pool area...

Currently has Simonis 860 on it but I would replace the cloth if it was up to me. I have hit a lot of shots from the same place on it and...

    Why Object Ball Last?

    ATI forum looked a little slow today so I thought I would bug ya'll. :eek: It seems to me that most players and instructors advocate looking at the object ball before starting the backstroke aka last. But why? What do we gain by doing this? Thank you! Ken

    Have you ever made a $10,000 10 ball?

    Well I have! I got drawn last week in Jamaica Joe's break and run pot. It was the second time I had been drawn in a year. The first time I got drawn I got unlucky when the cue ball was kissed into the corner pocket at the head of the table. So this was my first real shot at it and I pulled it...

    Tip Contact Time

    I imagine it is going to take a Dr Dave or Mr Jewett to answer this one. Is the time that the tip is in contact with the cue ball the same with a decelerating stroke and accelerating stroke? Was just driving home and got to thinking... Thanks in advance! Ken

    Long Overdue Thank You to Mr. Byrne

    Last night as I was helping a friend I was reminded of the best information I think I have ever received on the game of pool. About 20 years ago I read Byrne's Standard Book of Pool and Billiards. The lesson which stuck with me was about the physics pertaining to the tangent line. Knowing what...
