I think you"ll find it will break differently. Because the table is shorter and narrower the cue ball has less distance to travel coming off the rack and will tend to scratch more often. Breaking...

About the only thing I've learned (that I am capable of using) from watching Efren all these years is that sometimes it pays to give yourself a chance to be lucky.

Is it a standard practice to wax pool/billiard balls? I really don't know but I did come across this a while back. From the WPA equipment specifications:

FWIW, Ray Ban makes "Shooters" frames that sit high on the nose for shotgunners. Pretty sure that's what I have on in the poster photo. They work for dove hunting etc and if the progressive portion...

If you find a cure, pm the recipe to me. When I was younger I wouldn't let my grandmother win a game. Now Not so much. Still hate losing, but after the fact it seems.

When accidentally you do it on the 8 while playing 8 ball what's it called? Did that at my APA league match last week.
