    replied to Ghost vs. John 48 - wwyd?
    Let me get this straight. Your playing John aka Lil Ghost. The score is 5 to 3 with you being ahead two balls and both of you going to 8. What Would I Do? The first thing I would do is find out how you got Lil Ghost to play even. The second thing I would do is bank the 11-ball straight back and...

    Ghost and I come from the same "Chicago Academy of Mixed Directions" as Rose Bowl Roy Riegels, Minnesota Vikings Jim Marshall, and Aviator Douglas Corrigan. As a matter of fact the very first day of attending school I didn't know the quickest route and called Ghost on the phone for direct...

    Jrhendy posted that if there is room to see the 3-ball then he is banking it into the rack and sending the cue ball three rails and towards the opponent's pocket. I would probably shoot the same shot if there is room to see the 3-ball but keep the cue ball along the long rail (the rail where the 3-ball...

    replied to You need 6
    I like Ghost's shot. But there's a safer shot to shoot since you need 6 and are not shooting at your pocket to make a ball. I like shooting at the 7-ball where it angles off the back rail and into the 3-ball with enough speed to get both of them approximately by the "kitchen line." The draw a...

    I agree with your shot of banking the 9-ball to my side of the table and spinning the cue ball to the end rail....

    replied to Happy Birthday John Rawski
    Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. My wife and 3 daughters covertly and systematically planned a surprise party for my "70th Birthday" at Red Shoes Billiards this past Sunday evening. There were also many other co-conspirators who aided an abetted the scheme without whispering a word of w...

    I now looked at the shot taken. All I can say is "Mitch" will never be a grinder. Nice shot!...

    Without question I would confidently (using the spot on the wall system) two rail (side rail to the end rail to the one ball) at a slow speed the cue ball into the 1-ball.

    Hardmix So Peter can’t make it but I am confident I will find a game. I walk in and see I guy I know from Atlanta playing a match. They finish up and my friends opponent, who seems familiar to me but I cant place, introduces himself as Cliff and asks for 9/7. I give it to him to get the game going...

    replied to Another rules question
    A miscue on the break is never a planned shot but when it happens the player will on occasion, for use of a better word, "unconsciously" reach out to stop the cue ball. This reflex action is from every players prehistoric days of learning to play pool. Did you ever do it? To answer your ...

    replied to Another rules question
    Jim asked a simple question, "Does a one pocket game begin when the cue ball is struck or when the rack is struck?" It seems there are differing opinions from the responding seasoned members of onepocket.org.

    The game begins when the breaker strikes the cue ball. This is common sense!...

    This is the time to grind and hopefully my opponent will make an error. My first grind move would be to take an intentional foul by simultaneously, while slightly moving, approximately 1/2 inch, both the 12-ball and 3-ball. This prevents my opponent from having a bank on the 12-ball, 5-ball, and 3...

    I agree with Miller's first post. My opinion is that although the cue ball is near the mouth of the pocket it is still far enough out of it to competently come off the 4-ball and bring the cue ball behind the 12-ball. If I am able to successfully accomplish this shot the following three scenarios...

    replied to Ghost vs. Donn 24 wwyd?
    My first inclination, which is offensive, is to kick behind the 3-ball. My second inclination, which is defensive, is to roll the cue ball off the 12-ball behind the 3-ball. I would probably go offensive and move the 3-ball from my opponent's pocket and bring it to lightly strike the three ball cluster...
