    Re: advice

    Ray Martin taught me concentrate on being a shot-maker before anything else. He was right.

    My game improved the most when I made ball-pocketing my priority.

    Why do I think it's much simpler than your solution? What am I missing?

    You asked for the least number of times. That would translate into one of the first two balls being the odd ball. The only...

    Re: Shooting Out Of Rotation (9B)

    Oh, I've done it my share of times too. I remember one tournament in Cleveland, I was playing Ewa and I lined up for a 2-rail kick shot on the 2 ball. I shot it and missed the hit on the 2 but hit...

    Re: Shooting Out Of Rotation (9B)

    I'm guessing this is not a one-time occurrence. If it were happening to me, I'd do a little soul-searching to try and figure out what's causing the problem. Once you know the cause, then you can...

    No there isn't any rule against and I'd love to have an opponent who's dumb enough to not hang on to it. They not only risk missing the shot due to instability but they put themselves at greater risk...

    This is what I can't understand. How does something like this even get that far? At that point it's either about ego or getting drunk but it sure isn't about playing pool.
