No need for a sub-forum- why not just discuss in the main forum?

If you don't like one pocket (usually I'm not into it), just don't read the post!

I get the sense it is out of mutual respect between Steve Booth and him.

Nothing prevents us from discussing it here though.


My understanding from what Mike said many years ago is that Mike and Steve are friends. No interest in competing with Steve. We can talk about one pocket all we want on the main forum, should be good enough!

One of the most interesting one pocket matches I have ever seen was when Nick Varner and Gabe Owens got a wedge game going. I think they went fifteen minutes or longer with neither pocketing a ball. Those that didn't understand what they were seeing would probably rather watch paint dry on a cold day.

Pool itself suffers from being much more exciting to play than to watch. One Pocket suffers from the same issue, times ten! I like playing it, has to be two very good players to enjoy watching it.

Why do you guys like playing one pocket? Especially if the balls are on the other end.
Measurman was once like you.

I voted no, because the subject of one-pocket is mainstream and has its place on the main forum. The effect of stratification for me would be less access to one pocket threads, a result I don't want.

Watching the rise of one pocket newbie Josh Filler as he tries his hand against some of the stars of the discipline is, in every sense, main forum material.

I think one pocket is sufficiently popular enough here that threads stay on the main page but not to the point where it dominates the forum.

For me, there are two reasons why you would create a separate forum. The first, is if it is such a hot button topic that it dominates the main forum to the point where everything is sort of secondary. The second is if the topic consistently gets driven off the front page and interested parties don't get a chance to see it.

14.1 fits the latter because there is a dedicated group of devotees but they are the minority. The aiming forum, at one point, fit the former because aiming threads used to just push everything off the front page.

So if neither of those things are happening, and respecting the fact that there is already an active online one pocket community, I don't think we need a separate forum.


I would kill for a nobel peace prize

Do you only support restaurants whose menu has only what you like on it? Who cares if there is another line item for 1P on the main forum menu?

Look, I have no use for 1P. However when played by professionals, it can be a thing of beauty; see the recent Filler/Chohan event. Amateurs, I'd rather watch 6 year olds play soccer. But if your pool ambitions revolve around ducking and running over 90% of the time, have at it.

Bananas are ripe. Lace up.


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction
Of the plot that edifies all our instructions
It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

Only if the OP agrees to be hall monitor and diplomatically usher stray threads from the main to the proper forum with unflinching vigilance.
