As much as I like Wayne and appreciate Rich's game, they would both be slight underdogs to Richie imo. Richie has an higher top speed and is a far more experienced high stakes gambler. Get the bet up...

I would have questioned them a little further. I would have asked them INDIVIDUALLY to recall the foul from the previous game and see what they come up with. If they (especially player B) can...

I'm glad you could make it up there Frank. Like you, that long drive is too much for me anymore, but the one hour flight to San Jose airport was a piece of cake. I wasn't too happy about drawing you...

Bill, there is no reason we couldn't do both, start at Noon and play one losers side round late on Friday. If we did that this past weekend we wouldn't be having this conversation now....

I tend to agree with you Steve, except for one thing. Why do we need to wait until 4 PM to get started? Everyone is here the day before (and ready to play!), and there is no reason this event can't...

I like this shot. It takes any potential kiss out of the equation and is a much safer shot than just about anything else in this very tricky situation.

In that case you better be careful about moving balls up table. Remember, we are the ones who control the path of the balls. They are inanimate objects who just do our bidding. The game still...

With all due respect John, with the four ball rule you don't need a shot clock or a change in format. Try it, you might like it. :rolleyes:
