It's not looking good. The middle guy just called me again trying to set it up. So about a year ago I sent a guy with 660 Fargo to match up with the middle guy ( the broken English guy I trust. They were both looking for action but didn't wanna play me ). The 660 Fargo guy took the middle guy's money ( I think it was a race for 400 or 500 ). So I asked the middle guy to tell me more about the guy who wants to play for 5-10 grand. He said he's in his late forties or early fifties Hispanic guy. I asked if he's better than the 660 Fargo guy I sent in shooting 9ball on the big table. He said yes. I asked are you sure? He said oh yeah not even close. So that means the guy who wants to bet high is at least 700 Fargo. If that's the case I'm not interested. I was only interested if it was easy money. I'll try to get out there Friday and meet him anyway. My schedule is insane right now but I'll report back if it happens.

Gotta love that one.


They had the game so screwed up trying to shut down travelers that I don't think any of the local boys could run over three balls by their rules. If you touched a point going in without calling it, it was a foul! I started laying up half the balls so I could just tap them in on the next shot. Most the time I wasn't even trying to pocket balls. I played pool for three or four hours there and made an note never to pass by that town again or play pool within a hundred miles of there!



Jay, I'm pretty sure he is gonna find his Pot of Gold. That is the name of a big port-a-can company down here.

Now he says that he helped set this sorta friend up to lose four or five hundred awhile back. He thinks the guy is gonna set him up for an easy five or ten grand out of the goodness of his heart??

This thread was pretty flaky with the first post and has gotten flakier every time Mustardeer posted. It's flakier than a Pillsbury biscuit now!

Never thought I would miss Travis Trotter!

Translation: I was trolling the forum with this thread, which went 8 hours without a response.

Now, I am updating with information about how I sent a guy to take $400-$500 off "the guy I trust", but I still totally trust him, because there's no way the guy would ever want a little payback for something like that.

The story keeps getting more ridiculous.

Just met him. I donít know how I killed action but within 10 sec he wasnt interested in having my friend stop by for 5k. He didnt even want to play me. He told me Iím a very strong player ( Iím not ). Very chill, respectful guy. Somehow he knew my speed, my friendís speed. Iím guessing azb. Lesson learned. At some point he said with a smile ďI wasnt born yeaterdayĒ. I thought he was being passive so he could ask for weight be he didnt want to gamble period. The only thing he offered is to play golfito or whatever itís called ( table looks a bit like snooker table but pockets are crazy tight ). Totally different game Iím not interested. Sorry I wasted everyoneís time, the middle guy turned out to be a clown. I told him ďI thought you wanted to play 1 game for 10 large onesĒ. He goes I never said that. Waste of time.

Like above poster said,

Proceed with caution

Jeff
Or guys like Russian Kenny who want to be really smart gamblers! Love watching guys like him go broke at their own games. Ask him about behind the back spot shots for $500 plus a shot.

No need to start that high. Play him a couple hundred in a set.

If it doesn't make sense, its probably not true. And none of this ever made any sense. Hispanic unknown pro speed pool player with an unlimited budget....I mean, not even you believe what your writing.

Don’t mind me.

Question for any serious snooker players or fans I suppose.

So the scenario...I can’t remember the exact match now but it was Judward Trump against Ronnie O. Judd made a tough red and brought the cue ball behind the baulk colors just in case. Now he’s got no shot on the colors so he’s gonna play safe. He’s only like 3-4 inches away from the green and straight on. He rolls into it with a little speed to push the green forward a few inches, leaving the cue ball safe but still a few inches behind the color he hit.

Why wouldn’t he try to roll right up close to it? I can understand not freezing to it cuz from what I’ve seen they can just shoot away from the ball when it’s frozen and he could find himself in the same safety he tried to play. I’ve seen this same scenario play out 7-8 times now since I started watching snooker and each time I remember thinking that there was no way they accidentally hit the ball too hard, none looked disappointed in their results and they did get a decent safe, but it seemed like they weren’t trying to totally @#$& their opponent, just mostly.

Is it just tougher to judge than I’m thinking? I’ve never played on that cloth with those smaller balls. Maybe they feel it’s better to hit a little harder just to guarantee the CB doesn’t end up frozen to the color.

First of all, you can only shoot away if you’re frozen to the ball you can legally hit.
If you’re frozen to a color you still have to hit the red ball.

The people that insist on shooting with chin on cue can’t take the chance of rolling up
tight...they don’t have the perspective.
Leave that shot to an English billiard player, they might freeze you...or close enough to
make you shoot backwards...because they stand UP on the shot...they can see the distance
between the two balls.
When I was over there, Rex Williams, a world billiard champion, was welding them to
the ball on a roll up.

Oh yeah...dumba$$ I didnít think about the fact they have to hit a red lol. Even more reason to get all up on the color. Iím going to keep watching and waiting but they always seem to miss an opportunity there. I shoot from the chin too but not religiously...some shots do call for a higher perspective.

Hereís an old video of Walter Lindrum...the best English billiard player that ever lived...
...and many feel he was the best cues man that ever lived.
Notice the different stances, depending on the shot.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MR2vaWyvN0

If he rolled you up on a D-color, youíd be prying whitey off the ball.

Warning...Australian accent

That is great video and they had several more great videos on the side bar. Some people I don't remember seeing before. I forget if it was Lindrum or Hoppe that said never shoot from the elbow, shoot from the shoulder! I'll have to watch again just to be able to stir the poop with the pendulum guys when the time comes!
