So I'm guessing I made the 8-ball twice? Either that or it's ball in hand! :p

If I made two balls on the break, someone racked an extra ball!

Just a friendly reminder that we have 11 more days before the contest ends. So far we have two video entries.

Winner Announcement 09.02.2009

Video Origin
This contest layout was drawn from a game in 2009 World Game 9-Ball Final Allison Fisher Vs Jasmin Ouschan . In this match Josmin had an early lead and Allison fought back to take over the table with a series of great safety plays. This layout was very important for Jamsin, and she ran it out very nicely (check 7:47 of the first video)!
