Played a 7 last night on the table I dislike the most, unbelievably fast cloth (I'm not talking Simonis fast, I'm talking like glass table fast, tap the ball and it goes four rails) and dead rails. He took a decent lead and as I was getting my stroke dialed in I banked and "thud", missed by a mm, freakin' rails. A little more back and forth, he's probably up 30-20 and 3/4 way through the rack I decide to try another bank on another rail, thud, missed by another mm, later I tried a cross-side bank on the same rail from my first bank only I was about 3" away from the original shot so I played the dead rail - banked solid and came up short. About threw my stick across the room.

I asked if he'd be willing to switch tables, he needed 16 and I needed 40! Moved to the other table, I broke, made a few, played safe, a little back and forth and I win the game. I break and run it, feeling good. Break again, didn't make anything and as the balls are coming to a stop the 1 was sort of buried but then like the parting of the sea the 4 clipped a ball and spread the two balls hiding the one and he was dead straight in the side pocket - he needed 1. As he turned to get his stick I walked up and one-stroked the 1 in. He walked up to the table and realized the 1 was gone and threw his hands up in the air and laughed, we all laughed and had a good time. I was crying on the inside, I hate losing. He's a good shot and he earned it and I let him know, final score was 55-50.

BCA 9B started last night. I won 13 of 18 (we double play). Easily should've had 15 of 18 but it is what it is.

A guy on the other team was gunnin' for me because I beat him in both meetings of 8B. 3 games, I tried a safe on the 2 and it snuck out, he ran out then he broke and ran. I got him on the next game. Next round I got him all 3 games

Nice going .

I had one of those nights that seem to happen all too often lately . Just slow getting started and body there but head some where else.

First match was 8 ball in a 4-4 race. I lost 4-1. Was not shooting bad at all really but my opponent was shooting pretty sporty. How bad was my head not in the game ? He is up 3-1 and misses his last ball when I finally get to the table. I have a cluster that i know is going to give me problems so I elect to pls a safe and leave the cue ball behind the cluster. He kicks and makes contact with his ball and it breaks up my cluster. All right I think I can manage to run out from there. I pick hp the cue ball thinking I have bih. My opponent says you dont have bih...i say ...you are right and just hand him the cue ball. His last ball goes in the side pocket and the 8 in the other side for the win. What a dang brain fart I had after watching him make a good hit

So later I throw myself in 9 ball and motion for the same guy I played earlier ti come get some. He jumps up with a big grin on his face . It quickly disappeared when I run over him like a freight train. I won 46-24 in a 46 -38 race. I actually lost focus for a little bit and came up short on a shot once that led to him running 5 balls or it would have been a lot worse beat down for him.

Oh yea. first night shooting with my new meucci carbon pro and although one night is probably too early to tell but i think I am gonna like it more than my revo.

My 9 ball break still sucks but tonight was not as bad as usual.

We had our 8 ball APA World Qualifier this weekend. My team had people on Vacation this weekend so we had to start with a automatic forfeit putting us 3 in the hole. Team played great. Couldnít be more proud of them. I won big in all my matches until the last one. I played another 6. He was a class A Jerk. Running off to get a official every other rack. I never got in to the match and he beat me 5 racks to 2. The loss really bothers me. I really hope I get to play him one day soon.

So we lost in 8 ball overall. But still looking forward to Vegas with my 9 ball team.


Hope.., is not a Tactic.

Good luck in Vegas and dont forget to just enjoy the experience.

Hate to hear how your 8 ball qualifier went . I know ltc's are a pretty serious event to most people but some take it way too serious. I have ran into a few myself and hate to admit it but I occasionally drop down to their level and give it right back....within the rules of course. Actually some hate to play my teams because I have a memory like an elephant and will stop a match in a heartbeat and call for an observer...only on those who I feel deserve it.

Again...good luck and enjoy yourself.

lol. I understand pal. Sometimes itís tough to motivate. Iím looking forward to playing in Vegas. I was on a team that qualified in 2014. But I didnít get to go. Hoping we have a good time in August and represent our area.

Unreal night at league last night.

I played 8 ball in a 4-4 race. Came out with a very tough 4-3 win. I played 6 safes and my opponent played 4. I came away feeling good as my 8 ball game has been downhill this session . Only a 3-4 record until last night.

Played the same guy in 9 ball where he is a 5 and I am a 6. I won the lag ...broke and parked the cue ball smack dab in the middle if the table.....5 comes along and shoves the cue ball into a side pocket. I thought....this aint starting out good. I was right....he runs the table. After a few slops from him...a few fortunate leaves when he missed and another scratch on the break which resulted in him making a bunch of balls I guess I was fortunate to only lose 38-24 in a 38-46 race.

Unbelievable how the tide can turn so fast. Been on a roll with a 6-1 record so far this session including taking down a couple 7's and an 8.

Then my other 6 plays a 5 and basically had the same type match my opponent did. Only difference is his opponent kept getting frustrated ...very visibly....one rack when he scratched he just raked the remaining 4 balls ala earl the pearl. After scratching again When it got to 35-16 he just unscrewed his cue and walked out.

Ok...brace yourselves!

4-4 race in 8 ball. I get up 3-0, on the hill pretty fast. Then my blood sugar gets whacky (not diabetic though) and I cannot think straight.

45 innings...18 safeties by me and 8 by my oppenent...and TWO HOURS later, I lost 4-3.

Then I lost 17-3 to a 7 in 9 ball.

But, strangely, had to do a playback in 8 vs a strong 5, and I won 4-0 in 15 minutes.

Weird.

That describes amateur pool to a T. It's the lack of consistency (among some other things) that keeps our status as amateurs intact.

Me too. Was on fire the other day - B&R, running the table when I got up, 2 rail kick on the 9, etc. - then...I broke dry, left her with a shot and she missed, I went up and tried something stupid to get a break out and missed, made a comment to my teammate "why not, I'll get back to the table", his reply - Yeah, you've got 9 lives in this one. I won, but it took about 12 freakin' innings.
