    CK,

    Don't mean to add to your problems, but, I miss the individual posts being numbered like they used to be. It is harder without a number to refer to, to direct ones attention to a particular post in a thread. Can you ad numbers to the posts?

    OK, is there a way to lock onto seeing the latest posts first, so I don't have to flip the format every time I get on a thread?

    CK,

    Appreciate your talent and willingness to maintain this site. I find these changes to dark for my old eyes. I don't see that it is readily apparent when first looking at the forum that I can tell what threads have new posts. I am not likeg too much the emoji changes, nor the preview...

    These posts are becoming more hilariouser and more hilariouser Stop it, I can't take it anymore. I can't get up off the floor. I got NO idea what I'd do here, but, ooohh boy, do I love to play gophers that love to "fly" the CB around the table....

    replied to You need 6
    Looks to me like that dark ball (7 or 8) closest to you banks back to your hole. These type of banks reverse somewhat off the top rail, there is plenty of room to get by the 13 ball. CB goes up table and you can do some damage from there, maybe. Should you miss the bank you can stil put him in some...

    Thank you Dr Bill for the comment, and I think you are exactimundo in your advice to avoid the potential scratch. We gotta take care of whitey. But, to be clear for those having difficulty determining their hole or whose shot it is and such, isn't the short rail up by the kitchen known as the "hea...

    There is a pretty natural shot here that will move two balls toward your hole and allow you to focus on the CB not leaving a good shot for him. Hit the 4 ball on the left side into the right side of the 6 ball, sending both those balls toward your hole. Focus on playing the CB two rails back up int...

    replied to Another rules question
    Of course you are correct, Larry. I was just addressing the rule as to when the game has started, Without regard to what else happened. In this instance the breaker went on to interfere with the path of the CB. I guess the argument could be made to give the opponent BIH behind the line, however, I ...

    replied to How today’s action went
    Not a great start, how humiliating. But, you are to be commended for sharing such an experience. On the other hand this post could get you plenty of action. Occurs to me that your opponent must'a been some "grinder" to get you to dig a hole that deep before he ended the game. We all have...

    replied to Another rules question
    of course the op game begins when the cb is struck. failure to hit the rack and get a ball to the rail is a foul. the incoming shooter has the cb where it lays unless it went into a hole, then he gets cb behind the line. the breaker is -1. you and opponent can agree to anything you want, and ...

    Very passive shot I think. How far do you think thse balls are getting moved? And how does any of that create a problem for your opponent? I prefer to be a bit more creative, perhaps taking a bit more of a chance I will admit, but not much, to create a much more difficult problem for the incomin...

    Interesting observation and edict. Your shot of choice is to float off the 12 ball and position the CB behind the 3 ball (post #12). Please help me to understand, since a real 1-pocket player must deal with the balls (that's plural btw) nearest the opponents pocket in order to keep his OP players ...

    replied to Ghost vs. Donn 24 wwyd?
    After all this analysis and shot selections, I would have to bank the 10 ball back toward my hole, not caring greatly whether I hit that cluster or made the ball. My focus would be on the CB completely.The Cb needs to go to the side rail and rebound to anywhere between a half diamond and three d...

  • I agree wholeheartedly that OP needs to be sped up in order to make it viewable by the masses (so to speak). I am just as totally against ever putting BIH into the game. That would turn OP into a game much like 9 ball and would completely destroy the strategic and most fascinating aspects of our game. ...

  • BJ, I agree with you. As much as I would not like to go backwards, given enough thought to the situation and for a sizable bet, the smartest play is to push over along the top rail and hope he either does something stupid, or puts me back in the same place. If he did put me back, there would now b...

    Thanks Skin. I understand. Nothing wrong with what you were saying or repeating, it is just a different kind of clock. Appreciate your opinion. I just wish we would do something to put an end to this stupidity exhibited by the likes of Dennis, Alex, Justin and others. We should start in our own ...
