Nice to see you dipping into the dark arts of one pocket, Bob. I hope you'll be weighing in on the many 1p rules vagaries and uncertainties that often come up here. It'll be nice to have a grownup...

Don't get me wrong, El C. I like to shoot at my hole but not when the risk reward equation is working against me. Billy Jackets and the Kid make this point better than I can. For me it just boils...

It looks to me that the cue ball would ticky down behind the kick and end up near the 2nd diamond, which would make those banks sucker shots if the 12 has ended up close to my pocket. I might shoot...

Cutting the 8 has appeal, but if you miss there are so many ways to sell out, whether you hit it with left or right English. If I had to shoot it, I'd go for the z pattern and slightly overcut it...

A truism.

I pray for my opponents to shoot the 1 ball (and cross my fingers they miss). I might even bait them with the shot. We can all shoot from the rail at the 1 ball and make it X% of the...

Well done, John. Maybe catch a nap next time while you're waiting for the loser side to catch up with you. Good to hear that Chris's game is rounding back into form.

I'd thin the 15 to miss the 8 so I could move 2-3 balls over on my side, and I'd play the cue ball to land right on top of the 13 so he'll be long with few good options. I don't want to leave the...

If the Horseshoe won't budge, and doing the dinner during the DC event is the priority, there must be somewhere else in Elizabeth, New Albany or Louisville that can host the HOF dinner. Hire a bus...

I've had a torn rotator cuff for 5 years now. Decided not to repair it because of the long recovery ordeal. Since it doesn't bother me when I play pool or golf, and I can do most activities anyway,...

I really must not understand the economics of these streams, and I'd be grateful for an education:

That said, pool gamblers have a long and well documented history of dumping and doing business, and we all know it, which does make it hard to know what to believe even when it is...

I'm coming down for something in the morning on 10/24, so I'm thinking of heading down the night before to check out one of the rooms where they play one pocket. Anybody interested in some...

You can try to park the cue ball in the perfect spot snug to the 12, but there is a real possibility that you will leave your opponent a shot on the 12. Certainly not checkmate. Even if you leave...

As usual, Iím bewildered by some of the recommendations offered. Probably explains why Iím just a wannabe champion.

If you miss that the CB has stopped in place then the 10 ball will be an easy bank, wouldn't it?
