Im a newbie.

I really like Corey Deuel. Can you people give me any information about him? Age? Bio? What he is doing now? Website links?

I want to start a site for him as I really like how he shoots pool.

Any feedback will be great.

I see the url is already registered with CueStix Int. maybe you could email the adminstrator and he could give you some facts. Here's the contact email address hostmaster@gkg.net (http://hostmaster@gkg.net).
Just tell them you want to create a fan site, I'm sure they would be cooperative. They may even get you in touch with Deuel himself. I've seen it happen before.
BTW, corydeuel.net and .org are still available, register through Godaddy.com and it's really cheap.

Cory is a great player but i don't like him because he helped make the sofr break popular and to me the soft break is killing the game

Just out of curiousity, how is the soft break killing the game? I thought the object in the nine ball break was to make a ball or two and control the cue ball for a shot immediatly after! If the soft break accomplishes this how is that killing the game?

LS, some might say it is killing the game in that it has removed the excitement of difficult shots and the natural randomness of a hard break.

The soft break often leaves barely a ball or two at the other end of the table (moreso when the women play, because the men are beginning to adopt rules to prevent this). This turns the game into rotation straight pool, basically. Little nip-and-tuck shots, moving the cueball very little for position (all the balls are in one-half the table).

As Danny McGoorty once said about balkline, you have to shoot a cannon off in the arena to wake up the spectators at the end of a soft-breaked match.

I can't provide you with any of that information right now. Please be more specific in the subject to help readers know what the thread is about. =Tom

The Sardo is to blame, NOT the players who have adapted!

the break, like anything else is an acquired skill, whatever works, i don't believe you can say that a person who breaks soft is going to ruin the game cause you don't get that ear popping break like rodney morris. me, personally, i believe 9 ball has ruined that sport, 14.1 needs to come back, for americas youth

You are exactly right. I have seen him shoot many times around here and never seen him soft break when the balls arent Sardoed. I asked him why and he said that it is alot easier to make a ball with sardo/new cloth. You can't blame him for trying to control the cueball on the break when the corner ball automatically goes. Blame that stupid contraption that makes 9 ball too easy for that skill level.
