IMO Upscale one pocket is not worth buying. I looked at it again last week and after reading Winning one pocket and shots and moves its like a joke comparing the two.

Default Upscale One-Pocket

Yes, I agree.
After reading W1P, Upscale OnePocket is not very useful. If fact it is very misleading to anyone just starting out in 1P and of little use if you already play the game.
Eddie Robin really out-did himself with W1P & SMS. There is "SO" much detail you really get a "feel" for the shots, moves and playing the score. I can't say enough about the books or Eddie .
Good luck on finding W1P. If you are planning on buying one be ready to pay big $! It is well worth it!

Deno Andrews over on RSB probably has some copies for sale. He had some second editions, which were far superior to the first.

Wow almost fell of my chair when I saw Cloquet, Minn. That is where my wife was born and her Grandma lived and died years ago. Family name of Gordon. She left years ago for Kentucky and then Wisc. where I met and married. I am a Californian but all my relatives were born and raised in Hibbing and Chisolm. Guess there are 1 pocket players everywhere. lol.

Eddie Robin has been selling the few remaining copies on E-Bay. Try there.

Default Eddie Robbins...

I have three books of his and love them. I have not even lloked all the way through them. Anyway one of the members searched me out and asked if he could purchase them from me... you know what he offered? 300 for the set. I thought you might want to hear something funny. Michael

Either/both of Robin's books are considered the "Bible" of 1-Pocket, if you can find them. They are both out of print and have become exorbitantly priced. Another option is from Accu-Stats -- there are many excellent 1-P tapes available from them.

I found Koehler's book okay, but mainly for the beginner. It hardly showed me anything I didn't already know. As a C player, I find that running balls is my problem more than most things. I think a more in-depth coverage of theory and strategy would be more helpful to most 1-pocket players. Still, if you can't run 4 open balls, all the theory and strategy in the world can't help you.

I really don't recommend the book. I'd say Byrne's newest book "350 Moves Every Player Should Know" is more helpful for learning what's possible.

Must be the same guy who asked me. He wrote me and said 300, and I say hmmm ok sounds good. I thought he was talking about just w1p. Then he wrote me back and said...this is for W1P, SMS and 3c Position play right?

I just laughed and laughed over that one.
