One thing OLD One Pocket Players do well is lag the cueball. This shot to me is simply a lag off the left side to the spotted balls and settle the cueball on the bottom rail. This end game shot comes...

I would not shoot any shot where I leave the cueball up table. I don't want to let my opponent have any opportunity to get the cueball behind the one ball. That would change the entire game around....

I have not seen this situation come up in a really long time. I think the 14.1 rule might apply here in One Pocket and that is the ball closest to the kitchen line spots? But I'm not so sure so Bob...

A lot of players have recommended shooting the cut shot on the eight ball with varying speeds as to where the cueball will come to rest. I don't see any reason to shoot at the eight. The balls favor...

I have watched him at DCC for a couple of years and he is a great ball striker. It's only a matter of time before he takes up One Pocket and he will begin to excel there as well.

It was a great event with a very tough field. The players who finished in the money rounds were truly great players. Bogies treated us all very well. They were so nice to us old fogies. I think...

Hard to tell from the photo but it looks like a rail first shot to the three ball might just work.

I earlier posted that I would kick in the ten ball. I still adhere to my earlier thinking for one more reason. If you push the five ball up table, sure enough you can get it safe but you allow your...

I think way too much is made about tightening up pockets to the point where only Shane,Alex and Dennis could run balls on it. Diamonds already have an extended slate shelf so I wouldn't go any...

To me this is a no brainer. If it was the start of the game and the rack was in place and you couldn't see the ten ball, you'd simply kick one rail at the ten. So why is it any different now? I...

Push the issue. Don't be passive. Shoot the seven into the one ball and stick the cueball on top of the stripped ball. Open that cluster up and get something towards your hole.

I really wanted to bet tony in this match with Dennis. I just couldn't bring myself to do so. Dr. Bill made an enticing line (good job Bill) as he predicted via his line that he wouldn't get too much...

Sounds like the table is a 41/4" diamond with new felt. I don't know how to handicap these two whether this favors the ball runner (Dennis) or Tony. Most of us think that tighter pockets which these...

Bank the seven ball as you have a lot of cover with the six, eight, nine and eleven. Get it close and you might be golden.

Postscript: When I was about 20 years old, I ran 139 balls and thought I had arrived on the pool scene. I never repeated or exceeded that run again.
