Compared to some of the runs I've seen by Caudron, the guy who won is not that good, amazingly enough. Caudron ran 300 and out in the final 3 matches of the last World Championships, IIRC. They don't have the WC very often, though.

Caudron is not comparable with any other living creature

As I mentioned on Bert's page there was some incredible play in the Greek balkline championship last weekend, I seemed to be the only one tuning in though

I'm not sure but it might have been produced by Kozoom.

I have the DVDs of Caudron which I bought from Kozoom. I went to the Kozoom site and you are right I could not find the DVD anymore. You might want to ask Zen Steve who used to own a carom shop called "Traffic control Carom" which I think is now called Verhoevenusa.com. He used to sell copies of that DVD and he may have it in stock still. Worth buying in my opinion, especially when Caudron talks about his history in the game.

I even messaged Mr Caudron on fb and he suggested kozoom as well, his own website doesn't have them anymore, looks like they sold them all and not thinking about making more

the caudron video is more of an introduction to the games, worth a watch for sure though

I will try out a few of the videos on kozoom that teach how to play,

Beneath the Sur , have you seen the whole demo match between De Backer and Caudron yet? If you haven't I can send you the Accu-stats DVD. I had the VHS tape version when I was younger and wore it out as it was the only Baulkline video to see since the Internet wasn't at the point where it was streaming videos yet. I called Pat Fleming about the tape and he sold me the DVD version at a discount.

Got to try 47.2 for the first time, what a joy

But I'm still not 100 percent clear on rules


In the shot I already made one, if I drive the white ball just past the anchor line, while still being in the big box
Is that allowed?
