There is nothing much more colorful than that watching Glen Rogers dance around banking the lights out like a smooth banking machine ( just an example). A format in which both players would not play safe too much would bring out more offensive shots.
You have a great idea about a game to be promoted,it is entertaining as well as simple to understand. That does not make it "pure". Luck rears it ugly head in balls ending in bad postion and scratch kisses! And rack mechanics still enter into the game.


A bull without horns is still dangerous.

Law of logical arguement-Anything is possible when you dont know what you are talking about.

That having been said I guess I will believe him in that I would have been offered the same monetary amount to play the 3rd match that Justin said he raised for JS when JS turned down his offer. I would also offer my condolences to the TAR crew, Big Chad had plenty of heart and I know he loved pool as I believe Justin does also. So again thanks to Duff (Side Pockets - Lees Summitt, MO), Scott Edwards,(Lees Summitt,MO) and all of the TAR crew.

Sincerley, Danny Harriman

I would break safe playing most top flight competition - THE RACK MECHANICS DON'T HAVE A HORSE IN THE RACE Period, and yes this is relative to the game being pure. In short rack, it's all about the wing ball rack your own, loser rack, it's a lose lose situation. Full rack with the rack tapped there are too many balls rolling around and no wired balls as in 9 ball bank (short rack). I am not sure but I believe two object balls plus the cue ball = a legal opening break in full rack (which is the only way to see bank pool played correctly. If playing a race to 23 (Full Rack) I would break according to the score and or how I feel. We need the camera crew that films snooker matches and the game here in the states should be bank pool.
