Not that your going to believe this but what he says is true. I am not Justin. I don't message people on Facebook I don't really even use it but to check like 3 pages. A page for a pool hall a page for axe throwing and a furry page. Nothing more. I don't even post there. I wish a mod would say hey we have looked at his IP address and it is not just so stop saying that. But that apparently will not happen.
If you're not Justin you really should look him up. You guys could get together on Friday nights and play twister and look at porn.

We could start a thread in Action for guess who he is, but I think the consensus is it's Justin.
I think Justin wasn't as big of a idiot. Justin just likes to buy cues, ask the same cue questions, and try to figure out how to get something for nothing. This user is just cheap, asinine, and for the most part childish.

So I have seen some videos online of Shane and Earl etc doing bar box tournaments. I am wondering why they do these? Is it a they need the money thing? Is it cause they are contractually obligated to? Is it because they want to? I mean I do not like bar boxes and I am assuming pro's do not ether. If I was a pro I would consider bar boxes beneath me. So I was wondering. Please only post serious reply's I am legit asking. Non serious reply's will be reported.

Thanks
One answer:
- I asked a prominent pro a similar question abut why they play 9 ball and 10 ball tournaments but rarely play 8 ball. His answer was enlightening
"because that's what the promoters offer" basically, they play whatever they can to make a living

Another answer:
- I read an article and SVB was quoted as saying bar box 8 ball is his strongest game and he loves playing it.

That would make sense seeing as all had around was a lot of bars with bar boxes and such.

Shane grew up playing on bar boxes and his mom, aunt and grandpa were bar table champions. I think Shane played in the BCA Nationals for the first time when he was only 11 or 12.

When Tom "Dr. Cue" Rossman and Steve Lillis were on tour in the Middle East in 2017 they had the opportunity to do GTS RACK Team trick shot shows on seven different types of billiard tables and each one was fun and challenging. Many people who settle in the Middle East come from all over the world and bring various types of billiard equipment and knowledge that they are familiar with from their former homeland. Here are some of the tables they performed on in the Middle East: English 7 foot pool tables, American 7 and 9 foot pool tables, American 10 foot and English 12 foot snooker tables, Russian 12 foot pyramid pool tables, and various size carom tables with no pockets. They went to 4 Middle Eastern countries and the people appreciated that they honored them on their own equipment. Over the past 500 years, billiards has developed a rich and diverse history of culture and equipment and all forms are enjoyable and worth experiencing if you love the game!

Raise your hand if OP messaged you and asked "what's your problem with me"
I know 2 people in this thread have been blessed via PM's.
Same here I told him go ask everyone else who says the same thing I do about you and get back to me with the data

I'm pretty sure CSI put on a pro 10-ball and 8-ball tournament on Diamond Bar Boxes. 8-ball is a much more difficult game on a bar box for sure. White Diamonds tournament is also a huge money tournament played on bar boxes.
This. The White Diamond tourney got so big it had 2 Calcuttas and pretty sure the 1st was over or close to 100k
