    Okay so during this mandated stay at home and social distancing... this is what sheer boredom has accomplished for me... Bought a machinist level...found out that my diamond table wasn't as level as I thought...had a 10 thousand drop consistent though the length of the table...so several hours...

    Olathe

    Anyone from the site interested in the tournament there. I would consider going if someone wants to split a room and rental car. The dates are 23 June or the end of the month. 9 ball and one pocket. 125 gets you entered in both venues. B

    So this Friday I load up and drive with Mary K. It layfayette for the white diamond tournament. Come home on Monday. Then jump on an airplane and go to Atlanta to meet up with hardmix and go and play in the great Smokey mountain shootout. Going to these tournaments is all about trying to get...

    Quick road trip

    Drove to Atlanta this weekend with my wife to visit hardmix and his wife Kristen. Stayed Friday and Saturday night. Absolutely a great time. Only played Ben for about 18 hours over that period of time. I have got to say I had never played him and well I got my ass handed to me, at all games...

    Table speed question

    Does anyone know how to speed up older cloth on a table. My diamond has year old cloth, 760 Simonis, yet plays about two diamonds slower than the tables do at derby. All responses welcome. B

    Derby trip

    First and foremost playing and seeing the members of one pocket.org is the highlight of every pool trip I go on. Great expectations when I got there, felt great about how I had played this year and thought I would continue to play well. Josh Roberts changed my tune the first match of bank...

    Seniors in Houston

    Since I am still wet behind the ears and not old enough to play in the tournament I offer my pitiful pool skills for those who are in the tournament to practice against. My dance card is empty and I will be there for the entire tournament. B

    Amateur championship

    I know it’s not one pocket but to make it to the amateur you have to win one of these. I snapped mine off in Tallahassee this weekend.

    Us open

    Okay I may be foolish but I am now an entrant in both the one pocket and the banks. Saw nick p. And Bernie p. Are both in the one pocket. I am the only guy on the list with a Fargo rating of 0. Go figure... Rooming with Kentucky, should be a blast. B

    The last 6 months

    I have to admit I am tired. I woke up this morning and the first thought in my head was, why did I run a harder pattern than I had to in the last game I played last night. I realize that many of you turn your nose up at pool league. I did too prior to joining. I am now playing 5 nights a week...

    Do I have a target painted on me?

    Over the past seven days I have had calls asking if I was going to come play in tournaments from Pensacola, Houston,Memphis, and just got off the phone with Kentucky bill saying jump on a plane and come out to California. I must be “the mark”, that travels. Lol B

    Jtompilot

    Just a note to say if you want to play some tough action. Play Jim. He played okay against me last week, you make a mistake he wins. Even if you have a large lead. Really a tough competitor who is a lot of fun to play against. Look forward to our next match. B

    10 ball bank ring game

    This Friday at bumpers in mobile. I got 4 phone calls to enter this, so I have relented and will probably be dead money in it. I have not been in the grease since my little trip to the hospital. So I am really worried about my endurance for this. 16 entrants two tables. Last time I followed...

    Learning how to win?

    Most of us on this forum understand the basics of one pocket...know the right shot to shoot for each of our differing skill levels... But how did you learn to win with the skills you have...I truly believe that this is my next step in learning this truly wonderful game... Besides the...

    finally

    Well I finally did it...broke a 9 ball rack, made one ball, banked the rest in, all legal banks, put the ball up on the spot, and drilled it straight back...been trying to do that all year... I will probably not make a bank for the rest of 2017...lol B
