1--The bar table ruined the sport. In fact it saved it.

2--Push out is a better way to play then 1 F BIH

3-- Straight pool is the most superior championship game.

ANY tip will give you more spin than any other (as long as no miscue).

An aiming system is any better than no aiming system.

You should keep your elbow still during the shot.

Custom cues from xyz makers "hit a TON".

The best players today are better than the best players of yesteryear.

Laminated shafts have less deflection.

The rack format makes any difference in determining the winner. Magic rack, wood rack, rack your own, opponent rack, pattern rack, random rack, mandatory push out after the break, break box, break from rail, etc. None matter except in how much time they result in us seeing the ass crack of the player racking. The better player is determined during play after the break.

Anyone can become an A player (one who will beat the ghost consistently more than half the time on standard equipment), with lessons, practice, and years of trying.

Fast cloth like simonis and good modern phenolic balls take the skill out of the game and allow any hack player to beat a better player.

The measles CB plays differently (if it came in a matched set).

Here's one: skid is unpredictable.

Only, I've never seen a ball skid on Efren. Perhaps he understands the skid angles better than the other players, and hits shots prone to skidding with something other than a slow roll top english hit. LOL. Imagine that! AND, he doesn't even ask the ref to ever clean a ball before a shot.

lol

And then they say "who knows how good he could play if he had proper mechanics." <<< I know that can't be proven but still... it's close enough to a myth that I'm going go ahead and call it a myth.

Nine ball is all about luck and slop. Any player can win at 9 ball.
