In my brief time here, I've noticed that I have somewhat taken a moniker occupied by an extended member. I will try a request for a new moniker/username, as to not be a copycat, and forge my own identity. Thank you all !

Not only that, but your real name is about the same as the owner of the website!

That is a very classy move if I may so myself.


In my brief time here, I've noticed that my username is almost the same as an existing member. In the near future I will try and get a new username.


Hi folks,

my name is Chris and I live in mannheim (germany). I came across this forum many times in the last years and most of the times it really helped me out. Finally I managed to registere here and I am looking forward to have some nice discussion with you guys and maybe improve my english a little bit.

Hi everyone!

Great to meet you! My name is Andrew and I am from New Jersey, USA. I Played in both BCA and APA leagues for years and stopped playing when my team broke up about 5 years ago and have been playing recreational since. I love the game too much to stop playing all together!

I would love to potentially meet up with others here for some friendly games and look forward to picking the brains of the experts on the forum.

I put this in the gallery forum, but i guess i probably should have put it here. Apologies for the double post:

Hey All - just joined and started playing again after about 20 years. (had to pay for beer in college somehow, now looking to play again). Wanted to share my new and old:

-Harry Richards break-jump from 1996. I knew Harry from when i went to college in Daytona from 93-97. He even let me do some shop work for him to ear a little extra cash or pay for a new tip, etc. This was supposed to be my break jump but ended up being my player since 96 (even though i didn't really play after college). When i moved to Greenville in 98, the finish had started flaking (he had tried a new mixture which was too hard) so I brought it to Baby's pro shop to get re-finished. I also had Mike Gulyassy make another shaft, since i had outgrown the 12.25mm i originally had.

Flash forward to today. I bought a Schon STL-9 as my player. I re-united with Mike and he re-wrapped it in white-black linen (blue mountain, and awesome job). I also had him make me another shaft for the schon, as well as a 13mm break-taper shaft for the Harry Richards. Played them both today and they are frickin' amazing. Exactly what I wanted.

I have a cue design that I want Mike to make, but that's going to be a bit so i got the Schon in the meantime, I've always been a fan, and I knew i would get the hit i wanted even ordering it online.

Finally, in doing a bunch or reading on this forum i did just find out last weekend that Harry has since passed away. Rest in peace sir.

Here's the pics:

Hi everyone,

Been a lurker here for a bit. Started playing in '99. Stopped about 10yrs ago & recently picked up the game again. Hailing from hot & humid Singapore. **not all of us here are Crazy Rich Asians like in the movie** I'm definitely not one. Maybe just the crazy & asian bit minus the cash though.

Hello gang,

Pool enthusiast here, been playing the game off and on since i was 14 (15 years). Since i got out of the navy, i have been trying to get to the next level. Figured i would join the online pool community to give and learn what i can, as well as potentially buying some cues and finding out about the latest and greatest pool info.
I am Temiloluwa, Hail from the West. Yeah! west Africa, Nigeria specifically. I am a proud lover of snooker or pool. I long to bring about pool clubs in my community and also organize some international championship soon.
Proud to be here. Hope it's gonna be a lasting and exciting experience. Hope my speech is eloquent...hahaha. Obrigado.
