People tend to overcomplicate "the stroke". "Stroked properly" just means hitting the exact spot on the CB that you intend to hit, at the right angle and speed. That's...

He can also just play. I watched his 20-point run at Chris's many years ago - at the time (don't know any more) it was the North American high tournament run. I think you...
