    Derby City Calcuttas

    With respect to the calcuttas they had a long time ago in the Derby, was it always just the last 16 of the 9-ball players? Or were there other types? What was the last year they did calcuttas? Thanks.

    Dustin Miller

    Yeah, yeah, I know this ain't exactly one pocket related, but I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Dustin for being such a great guy. In addition to supporting the site and being an all-around nice gentleman, this guy flew to New Jersey to support Lou in his Battle Against Darkness. So...

    favorite handicaps

    Aside from adjusting the ball counts that each player needs to reach, what are the ways you enjoy spotting or being spotted and why? For example, no 3-foul, three-and-stop, etc.

    Destin, Florida (not pool related)

    Hey, guys, I am honeymooning is early July in Destin. Any attractions, restaurants or things that should not be missed? Any pool halls? Anything you'd recommend on the way from KY to FLA (other than the Smokehouse Restaurant in Chattanooga)? Sorry, I know this is off topic but I know you...

    Jenna Jameson & Alexis Texas to take up 1p

    Thought I might try diverting the angst to some wholesome imagery...that's all I got, mkbtank! Bet it would get more viewers than Bonus Ball.

    3C and 1P

    I was reading the Sang Lee story and got thinking about 3C and gambling. It seems like it would be rather different than other games. Let's take banks - you watch a guy stiff three or four at warp speed and it "puts a tremble in your stroke." Same with nine-ball - guy breaks at around 22 mph...

    Making a ball on the break

    Has anyone else noticed that if you fail to make contact with the head ball and you hit the second ball full with a nearly fully loaded CB that you will make the corner ball from time to time? Similarly, have you noticed that those who really load a break and DO hit the head ball first also tend...

    Wet tables

    Okay, it's almost April in Kentucky and the humidity will be here soon. From time to time, I get involved in games where the tables goes wet. Although I consider myself a decent banker, I get extremely frustrated banking on a wet table. Usually, I start off trying to systematically shoot them...

    gorrina cloth

    Can anyone comment how the Gorrina cloth banks? I have been watching some IPT matches and it seems like it would be very grabby. And if you consider they are playing on Diamonds, I bet it made for some interesting banks.
