    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...

    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.

    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...

    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....
