    HI Mark, I think we have all played on tables with rolls like that at one time or another. Pretty bad, I agree. The first time that happens it is a learning experience. What do you call it when it happens a second time? Remember, It will do the same thing to your opponent unless he does something to...

    I'm leaning towards the cross corner bank on the 10 no english. This should bring the cue ball up the center of the table and provide another bank on the 11 should I make the 10. This is the safest offensive shot on the table. The 15 ball appears to be sitting a bit far from the side rail so the kick...

    Jerry, now you're talking about a different kind of bad roll. I've got one for ya. Many years ago Jack Cooney was in the Baltimore area and frequenting a pool room called Jack & Jill. This was not Beenie's place in Shirlington VA. That room had been closed for a number of years by this time. But...

    Yes, Bill, equipment we are unfamiliar with can throw us for a loop until we understand the table better. So I agree the definition of a bad roll could include table drifts and such but only until we have had the opportunity to learn the table's idiosyncrasies. Then it's all on us and how well we learn...

    Of course! I have gotten plenty of good rolls and I expect if I continue to play I will get many more, but those instances are accidents. Bad rolls are not accidents!

    The question becomes; What defines a "bad roll"? My point is; and this is only my definition, is something occurring that was entirely out of my control. An act of God so to speak. Match on the line, game ball, straight in, easy. Just then an earthquake. The roof falls in and it's game over....

    Bad rolls?????

    What are your thoughts on bad rolls?

    I'm not taking about what your opponent may do or how lucky he may get on any given shot. None of us has any control over what they may do on their shots. I"m talking about what we do on our shots. Do you ever feel you got unlucky when you've...
