This looks like it would be fun to watch, but don't think I would play. Is this a 16 player max tournament?

It depends how it lies. If it's where I can naturally roll straight forward, I think it's a pretty easy shot. It's standard safety shot most of us could execute in 9-ball I would think. If there's...

If it lays right, this is what I like doing. Snuggle the cueball to the 2-ball and put myself in a winning position.

Amazing

I actually drove up from Fort Worth to watch this one. There was a ton of talent there (unfortunately, no Efren), but Strickland, Ochoa, Frost, Owen, Martinez, Gray, Jones and more... were all...

I really didn't expect to see so many replies on such a simple position (as in just three object balls on the table). I really just expected a few replies saying "you should have executed better"...

The pockets were probably just a bit bigger than 4.5", so not super tight, but not super loose either. He's a really "safe" player, so leaving him a shot where he would sell out if he missed isn't a...

Remember also that this was a slow table, so if I slow-rolled the cueball to duck behind the 1-ball, there was no guarantee that the 3-ball would go much beyond the 2nd or 3rd diamond. I guess I...

Uptable Balls

My greatest weakness (except for being able to run balls) are One Pocket games that involve multiple balls uptable. Can anyone give me a general strategy on how to deal with situations where there...

One Pocket always brings in a good crowd and it's what you're most known for I think, so perhaps that would be the way to go.

The top 3 were paid...

1st - $550
2nd - $350
3rd - $173

$50 entry - $10 green fee = $40 x 15 players = $600 total (I'm guessing this is how it worked) + Calcutta.

Ironman is a tough...

That's definitely a tough position. It's hard to play safe without leaving your opponent a shot. The 5-ball is dangerous because it's near the side pocket on the opponent's side. In general, balls...
