Thanks for the article. Surprised they didn't even mention Blomdahl(sp?).

"...The 80 entrants, who seemed to outnumber spectators yesterday..."

Now that is sad.

"“He died two years ago from stomach cancer,” Mr. Byrne said of Mr. Lee. “They say it was from too much kimchi, which is the spicy Korean cabbage they like to eat.”"

I knew that stuff was poison.
My brother, who was in Korea in the army and married a Korean woman, said in Korea they would mix up a batch of kimchi and bury it in the ground in a wooden bucket for a couple of months to mellow. /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif His wife used to make kimchi, their house stunk for days afterward and it did one heck of a job on her breath, whoa! I couldn't eat it myself, nor could my brother, nor my other brother-in-law who could eat anything spicy. It was really distinct... I liked her steak teriyaki much better /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif.

Qtec I played pool with Ira Lee at RPI when he was a student there. Ira paid me a great compliment, when Steve Lipsky asked him about me. Ira said I was the only player he ever saw that could run a 100 balls anytime he wanted and with either hand.####

I have always wanted to see a serious three-cushion billiards game but never had until I found some free web videos at http://www.caromtv.com
(You need DSL or other fast connection to view them) As a pool player, I was deeply impressed by the skill and creativity involved, and glad that I'd never become addicted to three-cushion--it looks so darned hard (and it's even harder to find a good place to play).

I use to play with Ira also at RPI,
I remeber you Mr. Leonard, you use to bring your grandson to the Commons pool hall. Ira always talked about how amazing you are.
I saw Ira a few years ago, I guess he lost interest in pocket pool and is concentrating on 3C.
I bet if you called him, it would be a great shock and pleasure to hear from you. /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

3 Cushion is a Beautiful game. But I find it hard also- in the fact you got to play on 5' x10' billiard table and not many room will have a table, because of their cost. This why I've became a student of Danggu/Danggoo [Korean 4ball], since it play on a 8' billiard table[better size to put in your house] consisted of Carom, Straight - Rail, Balkline,and 3Cushion. I do support The Junior National 3 Cushion Tournament. See Press Release at web page (http://www.cuemaker.com).

3-C is a nag to wrangle, and yet certainly a beauty to behold, DONE RIGHT. If the general metros around this country HAD more 3C, 10', heated tables to play upon...they'd grow a serious breed of a new kind of US player in every facet of billiards, 9-ball definitely included...sid~~~ain't no good at 3C but would own that table if given his second choice for a home PH add-on
