Hi,
Do you know if it is possible to have access for free to videos of (complete)pool matchs(8 or 9-ball) on the net?
The only one I have found is a 3-cushion carom match (Saginer-Habraken). Of course, many free videos of trick shots are also available.
Sad enough, but living in the country of the great Raymond Ceulemans, there doesn't exist a pool federation in the French part of the country (Brussels, Wallonie). Carom billiards are more common (but a lot less than 20 years ago) here but I prefer pool to carom :-( (because it is much more easy ... LOL_LOL_LOL ...)
I envy you all to live in a country when pool billiards are so common! :-)

Marc,

FYI, there are some online match videos available through some of the links posted under "videos" in the threads summary section of my webstie (http://www.engr.colostate.edu/~dga/pool/threads.html).

Happy viewing,
Dave

Hi Dave,
Thanks.
I have tried many of the links proposed there a week ago but I didn't find a whole match.
Maybe have I missed something; I will try again.
I woul add that I have read all of your articles and I find them *extremely* interesting. Ditto for the videos.I am sure I will enjoy your next articles about Coriolis.
Thanks again!
Marc

I think there are some full matches posted (but I'm not sure). They would be accessible through the links cited in the various thread messages available under the "thread with links to other video sites" threads.

Actually, I'm done with my Coriolis article series. You can find all six articles (July - December, 2005) in the instructional articles section of my website (http://www.engr.colostate.edu/~dga/pool/bd_articles/index.html).

Dave

"Actually, I'm done with my Coriolis article series.'

I forgot to ask, while that dicussion was going on:
Does it all still work in the southern hemisphere?

wolfdancer,

That's very cute. All of the pool stuff works just fine in the land down under (just like the toilettes).

Dave

PS: BTW, the Coriolis forces in action while a toilette flushes are insignificant compared to the fluid momentum created by the forced flow. In other words, a toilette that flushes counterclockwise (CCW) in the northern hemisphere would also flush CCW in the southern hemisphere because the change in direction of the Coriolis forces is not enough to overcome the strong vortex flow created by the toilettle design. I just thought you might like to know.

Wolfdancer. RPI college in Troy has a copy of Coriolis book on Billiards from 1835. If I could speak French I would spend time reading it. The foldout diagrams are unique for a book that old.####
