Default Which city has the best pool scene?

I have been given the choice of the following duty stations:

Des Moines, Iowa
Butte, Montana
Shreveport, Louisiana
Houston, Texas

Where am I most likely to find a one-pocket scene?

Default I also have the same question

I am in the Coast Guard here in the bay area have one more year left on this assignment. Some possiblilities for me are San Francisco again lots of strong one pocket here, Boston, Charleston, SC. Miami, Fl. Panama City, Fl. Honolulu, and Mobile, Al. Any of these other cities have good one pocket scenes?

Sadly, Boston is fairly One Pocket deprived these days.
I don't see how you could top San Francisco...

Of the four cities mentions I would hazard a guess and go with Shreveport or Houston.

One-pocket is certainly played in San Francisco; mostly I suspect at Delbert Wong's room, Family Billiards. However the gambling action is low. In fact if two guys match up playing even for $100 a game, the word quickly gets out, and poolplayers come from 9 counties to just watch in awe and amazement.

Either Houston or Shreveport would be my pick. There are lots more good players in Houston, but Shreveport and Louisiana are nicer places to live. Plus living in Shreveport gives one reasonably easy access to other pool playing communities for both tournaments and action. If one likes to bet high, then Louisiana is the place to be.

Good luck!

Doc

davamundo,I am in the Navy also and would have to wonder what type of duty station is in these places,but would definetly pick Houston for the action and its not that far a drive from La. Bigdog,I have been stationed in all the places you mention and Miami is without a doubt the best or a definet close 2nd to S.F.

Default California has some 1Pkt Action

San Francisco and Mountian View (Bay Area), Sacramento, and the LA area are all PRIME locations for some 1Pkt action.

Whatever you do, don't pick Boston for its one-pocket. If you say one pocket here, people think you are talking about some messed up form of 9 ball, and if they see a one pocket game in progess then they think you can't break.

One Pocket is has pretty much taken a dirt nap in Boston
