I would fall asleep in that forum.

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

I started playing one pocket because that is where you could get the biggest and easiest scores from a gambling perspective. I then fell in love with the interesting dichotomy between offense and defense that the game offers. That was when I was in my 30's now that I am in my 50's I am sure young players are looking at me and considering taking up one pocket.

When I want to see hard core one pocket discussion I go to onepocket..org

I fall asleep playing it, so reading about it would put me in a long term comma, my testosterone levels are still too high to enjoy it.

But I don't see why there shouldn't be a sub-forum for it, it's popular enough. I feel there should be a sub-forum for just about every game type there is, why not?

First off Hank I would say give the game a good try, it's challenging. It's similur to Chess, except on a Pool Table, it makes you think should I try a shot, or play safe, and leaving the opponent with no shot, or a vey hard shot.

I will admit the game can be slow, longest single game I played went over 90 minutes. The longer it went to more fun it was.

8 Ball, 9 Ball, 10 Balls game generally go fast. I also like Straight Pool or 14/1, but One Pocket is still my favorite.

We do not have many One Pocket Tournaments in the Valley where I live, most have entree fees over $50.00. I think there would be more people getting the "bug" if some of the Tournment were is the $10.00 - $15.00 range.

Like I said give it a chance. I have been watching a lot of One Pocket U-Tube, to me they are exciting.

Barton v/s Lou were very good.

Love one pocket.
Most intricate pool game there is.
You need every bit of knowledge and stroke
to play the game if you are playing the game correctly.

I think it's popularity is hampered by all of the players
that only have access to 7 footers.
One pocket is meant strictly for big tables.
I'd love to play some one pocket on a 10 footer.


Pool may not build character but it certainly will reveal it.

True, but I think there room for a Sub - Forum right here, JMHO.

Why do we need a sub-forum for each game?? There's already one for 14.1. What's next?? LastPocket 8ball Forum? BankPool Forum?? I don't see the need and i like the game.

Go to onepocket.org

The site management has already said they don't want to make that sub-forum. If you go to that site you'll also stop wasting our time here so it's a win-win

It is sort of like a 10 year old boy and girls...once you learn about it, it's never enough.

Ideaologist has a point about one pocket...

Me peraonally, I'd like to seem the subforums moved around/condensed. I love Steve Mizerak, but the last post in that forum was over a year and half ago(by me), just makes navigating the forum more challenging than need be.

If you watch the recent Josh Filler vs. Tony Chohan match @ Roy's Basement on Facebook you may see it differently. This is offence at it's best.

Mike has already stated he isn't interested in a 1p sub forum and double what onepocket.org does.

He did not imply that his would be better or worse.

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

Nothing prevents us from discussing it here though.


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string

Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction

It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function
