have a nice day

(yawn) Don't care about your opinion.

...and no, the WWYD's are not "real" in the sense of realistic actual competitive game once they get on here -- even if they are real photos taken from real matches. But that doesn't detract from their value as mental One Pocket exercise. You don't like to participate in them and that's fine, but there is no need to just drop in and knock them.

I know where I live, I do not get enough real live 'me at the table' One Pocket competition. I appreciate the opportunity to get my One Pocket fix virtually -- either watching vids or jumping into the WWYD's. And I get to hear/see other player's shot choices, because I already know what I already know. But I don't know what I don't know, so I like getting those other perspectives.

As far as the insistent bits about WHAT IS THE ONE RIGHT SHOT, no I don't go for that either. But I know I for one, and I assume many others, are well aware that in a real game at a real table with our own real and often limited skills, we are not going to hit every shot perfect -- but it is not going to stop me from trying. It's why I play pool -- to engage and compete and do the best I can!! But you cannot play a shot if you do not see the shot, and the WWYD's actually do help with that.

If you can't hold your water until the DCC it just tells me you were never serious about the 11-7 in the first place ;-)

Lou Figueroa
Unlike you when I offer a game the game gets played... you can't find a person on the planet who will say im not a perfect gentleman when I play.. There are different ways to get games.. when you know somebody will you can wait till Derby and then make a game... when you think they are posturing like in this case its better to make the game in front of everyone..
P.S. if John Barton wanted to make another game with you online Im sure you wouldn't have a problem with it would you

P.S. have a nice day

I don't think so, just roll back and look. But you never consider your own comments to be insulting -- we know that.

I'm commenting on the conversation here. Tyler has made some good points about the disparity between the one pocket brilliance some folks lay claim to here and their real life performance. Several folks leap up to belittle him, for rather obvious reasons. I agree with some of what he is saying and wanted to just lend some support in that regard.

I have things to do so I am not going to argue but if you want to support what Tyler posted you go on my short warning list too, because I think his post was out of line, and I made that clear.

JB and I had 15-year hard-ons for each other. That's why he wanted to play and it's why I wanted to play. Regardless of how you viewed the match up, we both thought we each had the best of it going in. And, regardless of what a nut case he is/was I had/have respect for John. He had he own internal logic, rationale, and a passion for what he said and did.

You, OTOH, are just a lout and blowhard who means nothing to me. I could care less if we play and what you have to say on matching up here.

The spot is 11 to 7.. 6 or 8 ahead will show everyone who has the best of it.. as far as the rules.. whats wrong with the tournament rules? as far as the bet maybe you were uncomfortable with amount I suggested.. what would you be comfortable with betting? and by the way if when we get to the table if you want to make a big show and offer to bet more money like you did with J.B. you will be accommodated..

have a nice day
