    2020 Rankings

    Josh Roberts, Jayson Shaw, Jeremy Jones, Justin Bergman and Sky Woodward, most likely make some people’s top 15 list and for sure make my top 20.

    The Best of Lockdown 2020 - One Pocket Ghost 15 ball Run

    I'm not buying the 150 tries. I have a feeling this is part of Dave's daily routine, where he can't stop for the day until he runs 15.

    Chicago's Horace "Watusi Slim" Pollard

    Rip to Watusi Slim. I played him years ago and learned from him not to judge a book by the cover. He was so tall he had an unusual stance and way he stroked the ball. I saw him miss some very make able shots and thought, “how can I lose?”. Well, he moved so damn good, it was only a matter of...

    9/6 vs 11/7

    Thanks Nick. I'm kind of a jack of all trades, maybe, leaning a little more to the moving department, which is why I turned down 11/7. He rejected the 9/6 or 12/7 that I proposed. We came to an agreement of 11/7 12/7. Now I just gotta find my stroke again before I play the match.

    9/6 vs 11/7

    Lol @ Beatle, I'm almost surprised it took that long to get a comment in that regard. @vapros, you make a very valid point and I have come to the same understanding. This player might just have me under clocked a bit, so I really feel like I have a decent chance in my 20+ years of observing...

    9/6 vs 11/7

    Thanks guys. I'll probably make a final counter to him that he can choose either 9/6 or 12/7. And to ChicagoFats, yes he is a top 50 player.

    9/6 vs 11/7

    Gentlemen, I need some advice. I’ve never matched up with a real good one pocket player before. I was originally offered 10/7 and I countered with 10/6. He countered with 11/7 for $$$$ and I feel like I might have a halfway decent chance at that but not sure. My question is would you guys...

    Where is Brian Gregg?

    He was a coach for his son's basketball team. He also own's his own business Gregg & Son's. Ironically enough, he just posted on fb that he's looking to get back into the game, fishing for potential sponsors.

    Rules question!

    Cincykid, right, I know that would be the rule in 8/9/10 ball, just not as confident about One Pocket.

    Rules question!

    Please help me settle a dispute, rules experts. If I’m shooting a ball, and in my haste knock a different ball with my hand, which happens to go into my opponent’s pocket, what is the result? None of the other balls on the table would have altered the path of the ball I knocked in.

    Players in Chicago / New York / Montreal?

    Of the three cities you mentioned, Chicago has the most one-pocket action, by far. One Pocket Ghost would probably be able to match up with you and then steer you into a few players your level based on how you fare with him.

    My most memorable bank pool game!

    About a dozen years ago at the DCC, (the last year at the Executive West), I was fortunate to grab a table Friday morning to prepare for the Bank event. Playing on Gold Crowns mostly, I was trying to get as much warm up time as possible. Some gentleman had come up to warm up as well and after...

    I second KY banks statement. Cliff’s banks very rarely left the jaws of the pocket.

    3 left in the Banks

    John Brumback is taking on Alex Olinger with Jayson Shaw getting the bye. John has 0 losses, but Alex and Jayson have used their buybacks. John already has used a bye, so if Alex wins he gets a bye to the finals waiting on Jayson and John. But if John wins, its John vs Jayson in the finals...

    Overdue inductees

    Is there gong to be nominations for the Hall of Fame this year? I'm wondering if Johnny "Irish" or Clem Metz will ever get in???

    Jump bank?

    An odd situation came up the other day playing some bumps. I played a 2 way bank shot, missed, and my opponent comes to the table and proceed to dig out his jump cue for a bank shot. 1) Are jump cues allowed in bank pool? 2) Have you ever seen anyone or you yourself played a jump bank...

    RIP John "Bankin" McGhee

    A bank pool player by the name John McGhee passed away this morning in Milwaukee, WI. He had honed his skilles in Chicago and was able to stay under cover most of his life. He was a character to say the least. Just one of many that we have been losing. RIP John, you will be missed.

    Best US player?

    This goes out to mainly Lenny or SJD since they know the Freezer the best. Has Scott asked Shane to match up in even up One pocket lately and if so, has Shane been interested? I'm envisioning/dreaming of a side match at Tunica this summer that's something longer than a race to 4....
