I've been playing pool seriously only for a few months - I've got a nice Olhausen table at home - but I've never been in a pool hall. After reading the billiards BB's I realize I am deficient in some of the lingo, jargon and/or pithy phrases associated with the game. I would like to use this string in this forum to periodically ask you learned people what certain things mean. OK, here's a couple to start...
Banger - I think I know what it means, but sometimes I wonder if it's a pejorative term.
14.1 - I see this used a lot in different ways. I figured it had to do with rule book entries, but I'm not sure.
Sneaky Pete - OK, I know it's a type of cue stick. But what makes it a "Sneaky Pete" as opposed to your garden variety stick?
That'll do for a start. Thanks!
