Well, for the 14.1 challenge at DCC the balls were cleaned several times per day and whenever a player asked for clean balls at the start of a set of turns.

Yes, for the 14.1 Challenge that was true.

But I was talking about the tournament at large.

526 Table Size - 09-28-2019, 07:29 AM

The nominal size of a table (expressed in feet) is 8'' more than the length of its playing area. The advertised size (or quoted size) of a standard pool table is exactly equal to its nominal size, except in two cases:
A standard 7' table has a true nominal size of 7' 2'' corresponding to a playbed length of 78'' (not 76'' ).
An 8' table has a nominal size of 8' 4'' corresponding to a playing area 92'' long (not 94'' ). Tables of that unusual size are also referred to as oversize 8 foot tables (or even 8 foot tables, which they're not).

4'x8' tables was the common size table for the home player.
Ref: 8-1/2' table above. These were generally known as 4-1/2'x8' oversize tables common to all businesses. The between the rail nose measurements were 46"x92" playing surface. There were thousands around the country. Most joints had one or more and some pool parlors had many of them. These tables were available from the 20s to well into the 90s, before they began to give way to the competition 4-1/2'x9' with 50"x100" playing surfaces and to the 5'x10' tables.
The game hasn't changed, only the players and the tables. Even the rules to play by have not changed either!

Yeah, we all know water is wet.


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Don't let your bark be bigger than your stroke.

If I had plenty of money, I would probably lose more often.

Your arguments have fallen on deaf ears, No? Only water left to talk about?
About to turn spigot off?

Just saying. Every player on the planet knows what you posted.

Yup, a 9 foot table is bigger than an 8 foot table.

We really should look into the whole cloth color aspect of this next. Even if they were both green were they the same shade of green?

And if 626 was on blue I suspect the whole thing is null and void.

By way of comparison -- The playing surfaces on Diamond's 3 table sizes move in equal steps -- 40x80, 45x90, 50x100. And the exterior dimensions for all of them are 14" wider and 14" longer than the playing surfaces.

which is precisely why I think the 526 is BS too. I have the record for most consecutive made 3 pointers from NBA range in history...oh I mean the hoop was bigger, but thats cool right? Gtfo. In NO other sport would we think this was okay.

Man this is still going on lol...

Lou - have you ever seen John polish balls during a run? You have mentioned it many times now and have intimated that he polishes them in a machine before every break shot so they will spread better, thus cheating. Ive never seen him do it or heard of it from anyone but you, who has been proven to be a non objective participant in this situation lol.

Xradarx - are you claiming to be Frank Alamanza? Also...can you actually play pool at all?

No, I'm not Frank Almanza. Yes, I can play pool. Take notice of 'xradarx'. I play between the 'x'es. Center of object ball to center of the pocket. Don't give one damn about the size of the pockets. Just arguing to be arguing. Will play nice if treated likewise. xradarx
