Just curious, Where do you play and what tables are in your area. I live in Northern Indiana and there is not one heated table in the state that I know of. The closest to me is Niles, MI The Billiard Garden. Dwight ( The Owner ) has two Sogaard tables. There is no substitute for a great table.

The USBA tries to maintain a list of all rooms known to have carom tables. See www.usbilliardassn.org (http://www.usbilliardassn.org) If you find any other rooms, please send the info to the USBA Secretary, Jim Shovak

Bob,

I saw you on TV last night judging the 3 cushion matches. You did great. Some guys will do anything to spend quality time with Jennette!

I thought the broadcast was nice and was very surprised at how well Mike Massey did. Not that I should be, with his stroke, but I know he has not spent that much time on those artistic shots. These guys make shots that are simply incredible.

Mike has spent a lot of time on the pool artistic shots for many years, and he doesn't play the easy ones. He practiced for a couple of weeks before the event. I hear he plays a lot of 3-C now.

The most remarkable shot of the match for me was the 10-cushion shot where he made an M. In practice the night before he made it as an 11-cushion shot. The fourth cushion in the shot is a reverse cushion, and to carry another 7 rails after that seems impossible. I don't know if you could see it on ESPN, but the cue ball curves the wrong way after the fourth cushion (towards the long rail).

I did see that shot and nearly wore out the DVR function on my set watching it over and over. Several of the shots, I'd have to practice for about a century just to get the initial action and would never dream of making the shot.

These guys frighten me. Balls don't do that! /ccboard/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
