I think the corners on that table are 4 1/4" pockets - pretty tight.
If anyone is there, we have to get the measurements for Dr. Daves TDF thread.

Just to get my facts straight - Mike and Shane are leaving from here to Doha Qatar, then to World Cup of Pool Sept 22-27 in London as Team USA, then back home for US Open 9-ball October 24-30.

Anything else on the schedule between World Cup and US Open?

1st time I've ever seen somebody leave the stream booth to play referee on a shot.
No harm, no foul, I guess. Still, it seemed unusual.

New Englanders are as bad as the British...they throw in Rs that don't belong often...
....then they leave them out where they DO belong.

I grew up thinking that 'khaki' was pronounced ' carkey'...like, uh, wtf?
....and 'pack the cah' is no way to 'park your car'.....'ello?

Good commentary is gone from a very long time, since back in the days when Grady Mathews, Billy Incardona, Nick Varner, and Buddy Hall, and commentary in my opinion has went down hill, and it's hard to recover it unless you find old knowledgable players who are passionate about the game want to take over.

You want people that knows the game inside out, basically you want teachers, people that I can learn from, you also want some controversy, who didn't enjoy the controversy that Grady Mathew and Billy Incardona brought to the live matches, I know I did, I love their little fights over some scenarios of the game, also you want people that respect the game, we don't need people that when a game is open goes with "Oh he's out" <---- this kills the game for me, you always have a layout thats easy, but always have a key shot or key position in every rack, don't go with "Oh everything in the open, shane is out" <-- please if you are a commentator, don't say this. Billy and Grady will never say this.

This^^. I do think Ken and Al, Cotton and some of the others can be great commentators and obviously know the game - the impression I get is that they are bored, and I couldn't agree more with the 'Oh, he's out' and 'connect the dots' commentary, it's a cop out. Like you said, there's always a key shot, position, or something to talk about. Why is it connect the dots, natural angles, etc.
