It was good to see Grady and it wasn't, think about him once awhile.
I left at the ened of the first rack with good memories.
As far as the parting shot, I thought for sure the 10 ball was the shot, guy took the 6 in the corner.
I have never heard of such a rule. In 2008 the WPA got rid of the "nurse safety" rule at 14.1. It was, by that point, rather complicated and unneeded.https://youtu.be/wf8qZgPkiUs?t=5697
Interesting rule discussion at 1:34:57. Grady was unaware of the rule although it didn't apply in that instance because they weren't on two fouls. The safe to the same rail twice applied but not the two foul rule with a ball within the width of a ball from the rail.
Seems like an odd rule but there must be a valid reason. I wonder if Bob Jewett is familiar with that rule.
I found the part where pat talks about his short cue particularly interesting
grady also mentioned how the steel joint on his cue weighed less than usual
while maybe not 14.1 specific, does anybody what tech. he was referring to?
From memory - which isn't perfect - I think he said it was a Black Boar. Whether it was made to his specifications I can't say.
The only thing I know about Black Boar cues is I can't afford one.
