    Anyone have a Alex Brick jump cue for sale?

    I had mine stolen a few years back and have never found one better, tried many. I still have the butt, just need the shaft and little extension. Thanks.

    Fastest way for a beginner to get two balls better

    Of all the pool games, one pocket is the only game I can say a beginner can get two balls better in a short time from watching matches with good commentating. The first time I played one pocket was a few years back and I played Harold Mcabee for 500 a game, getting 10-7 and I lost 8 in a row and...

    Whats the ruling here

    I'm playing a guy this morning, I need 1 ball and its hanging in my hole. He can't scratch behind it because of several balls above the head string. He double hits the cueball making my ball and says he fouls and spots two balls. Whats the right call here?

    What causes the corner ball to go toward their pocket on your break?

    I have heard its because the balls were not froze, but I had it to happen to me several times the other day when I made sure the balls were froze. Is two thin a hit on the head ball also a reason? I also don't have this problem on a goldcrown, only on a diamond.
