    This could be really weird

    Ok folks, in my local area we don't have a hall with enough 9' tables to do anything. I have a strange idea about having a small one pocket event on bar boxes using an 11 ball rack. Have heard of this being played but not as a tournament. Just looking for something different. Feasible...

    Grady update

    Mr. Gilmer passes

    Mr. R H "Professor" Gilmer passed this morning. He owned Southern Billiards in Starkville, MS for over 20 years. RH was not only a close personal friend but he was truly a friend of the world of pool. He will be sorely missed. Pel

    Grady relapse

    For anyone that doesn't know, Grady has had a setback. I went up and spent last Sun and part of Mon with him. They are now doing radiation to the brain. His spirits are good and we hope to have a prognosis soon. Later, Pel

    Rule on spotting ball?

    Never had this happen before. During a practice game of banks an object ball jaws up sitting right on the edge of the lip. Each player shoots another shot with both missing. When the incoming player is down lining his next shot the ball falls. Now I know it needs to be spotted BUT should it...
