    Wally, you are in for a disappointment - the Splash Bar has been gone for years. Kady's restaurant is no longer there, either.

    Avoid the San Remo tower - it's the slums of the Riviera, they...

    My Master's team got second place in the Dallas city tournament earlier this month, which means ... we got "nothing". So unfortunately, I won't be there for APA. And I was so looking forward to a...

    Need YouTube Help

    I know there used to be some expert YouTube users on here, hopefully there are still some monitoring the threads.

    I play mostly on bar tables, but I think my runout percentage might be a little higher on an 8-footer. Bar tables have no really long shots, but lots of random clutter. 9-footers have long shots...

    Eric,

    How do you rate Fargo as a more random test of offensive skills? Personally, after trying Fargo, I haven't found any other equal-offense-type exercise that seems to bring anything...

    Dave,

    I don't recall trying to paint you as a poor player. If so, I apologize - it would be very out of character for me to tell anyone that they were "bad", even if I believed it to be true. ...

    My experience differs considerably on this point. Not all players "start hitting the balls harder and harder" when they are left tough. Perhaps a number of very-inexperienced players might, but it...

    Hi Dave,

    I took a quick look through the stuff, and will take more time later, but I did have one quick question. On your page which compares ranking systems, you show "Fargo" as having a ratings...

    This is silly

    Hard to believe that you guys have been sitting around questioning this lady and her references for half a year, and yet no Florida members have ventured out to play pool with her.

    Re: Weighing Pool Balls.

    I'd only have to do it once. After that, I'd remember which was the oddball.

    BTW, congratulations on your improved writing skills!

    Re: Myth of the center ball hit

    14 Ball,

    I would not be surprised to learn that Bob would make that claim. He has always been quite the salesman.

    In the early 1970s, I was in college at Ole Miss, and Bob Meucci had his...

    Re: What Makes a Good Break Cue Good?

    For us non-experts, I think a larger tip diameter and flatter crown also help. Similar trend in golf drivers.

    Tom,

    I'm sure it varies geographically, but I can give you several examples from poolrooms in Dallas, Texas:

    It won't work, except for a narrow range of cue-ball approach angles. Using the method as drawn, you would be aiming at exactly the same point regardless of how far the cueball is from the...
