    My report on the "Express rules" used at Buffalo's last week

    I remember when he instituted that rule at one of his 1P events. Grady was a fast player himself, and he frowned on intentionally slow play.

    My report on the "Express rules" used at Buffalo's last week

    I didn't realize that the Jansco's eliminated the push out. I wonder which version they played? Don't know if Cardone would remember. John McChesney instituted the no-push out, 3 foul rule in the mid 1980s for his Texas Express events. That's the first I'd heard of it. IMO it ruined the game...

    Yeah, I remember the 5X10s by the Market St. side. I don't recall the bleachers. Maybe they were there for an event? I was there in the late '60s, but not again until the early '90s. I think in the '60s they still used the Market St. entrance. Later you had to enter from the Golden Gate...

    short rack one pocket

    I don't have a film, but I've played the 11 ball rack. It's essentially the same as the regular game, but shorter. The 11th ball is placed frozen to the 8th & 9th balls in the back of the rack for the break shot.

    John Schmidt's post on Facebook today

    Well, a shot clock would be more in Schmidt's favor. Yes, he's 50 years old, but he stays in good shape.

    How'd that turn out? Nice to see "Downtown" Eddie Brown still sniffin' aroun'. Loves the action, and an experienced sharker...;)

    November 16-19 Buffalos Open One Pocket tournament

    I see that Mike Black is in the event. I thought Mike left the area. Didn't he used to own the poolroom in Baton Rouge? Real nice guy. Good shooter. Surprised that Lil John isn't around.

    Henderson One Liners

    He always made funny jokes about his "sure fire" method of horse racing handicapping. And I wish I could remember some of his sarcastic remarks about his old friend, Ronnie Allen. It's hard to believe that John is gone.

    Facebook warning

    I'm sorry to hear about that, Tom. FB is not only dangerous, but it's a pain in the ass. Somebody put up a fake FB page for me (Arthur Tripp, D.C.), and FB refuses to take it down, despite several people telling them it was fake. When I went to put up a page for my business, that fake page...
