Another is Anytime Billiards in Jacksonville,, about 16 tables, really good food, and a well run 9 ball tournament on Monday,,,, yes, Monday nights.

This is my home room and I absolutely love it... Plenty of space between tables, ample seating for spectators and as Renegade said, a very well run 9 ball tourney on mondays.. Last I heard they were attempting to pull together an 8 ball tourney as well but I'm not sure how that came together or not as I deployed back to afghanistan shortly after they started planning. Plenty of action to be had on mondays after the tourney as well.


Gunnin' for a 3 pack!!

Not sure if anyone has posted this but Speakeasy Billiards in Sanford NC has closed it's doors. I was playing at The Brass Tap two weeks ago and was thinking of heading down to Sanford when several local players I know told me. Sorry Jimmy had to close he was a good room owner.

BreakTime in Wilmington...

Unfortunately, this room is overrated. Formerly one of the best action/tournament rooms in the Eastern US, the owner over the last 10 years has let the equipment suffer.

Eight 9 foot diamonds, 2 are PBT Edition red labels, tables rarely get recovered, never get leveled, and are in SORE need of new rubber and new pockets. The Brunswick Centennial ball sets are mismatched, with odd balls mixed in. Tables are filthy and desperately need reconditioned.

The sixteen 7 foot Diamond coin tables are owned by Southland Amusements and are also sorely neglected. Balls (also cheap, mismatched sets) hang up frequently. Bad rolls everywhere. Tables look great from a distance, but play ... Poorly.

The room itself is clean and nice. They serve great food and reasonably good service from the staff, though the staff is not knowledgeable about pool and billiard games. They have in-house, APA, and VNEA leagues.

New owners haven't taken over management duties yet (I think maybe Jan 1), so maybe things will improve. Currently there's a Friday 8 PM, double elimination, $10 entry race to one, 8 ball tourney (7 footers), and a $15 entry single elimination, race to handicap 9 ball on Saturday at 1 PM (9 footers).

I just got back from a trip to the Asheville area of NC and went to Fat Cat's. I thought it was a great place. Lots of classic Brunswick tables of various sizes and the felt was in pretty good shape on most of them. Reasonable rates for hourly play, friendly staff. I would go again. I didn't take photos but they have a Facebook page.
