    When did you fall in love with one pocket?

    Cannonball busted him the first time. DW pumped back up by hustling drinkers out of the Gay Nineties bar and won it all back plus.

    When did you fall in love with one pocket?

    Played it first on a 5 x 10 snooker table around 1956. Did not care for it much since I got beat every time. I did not have a clue and went for everything. In 1960/61, I sweated two long sessions between Detroit Whitey and Johnny ‘Cannonball’ Chapman, and was growing more interested. I also was...

    A Little Humor And A Sign From The Mother Ship

    I found out this morning they are moving me to a rehab facility at noon. It is like two blocks from Hard Times. When they came to give me the news, I was halfway through a Magnesium Citrate the surgeon had prescribed to make me poop. I will warn the transport team.

    I'm Ready

    I am on my back and using a walker to barely get around and will be sweating it from home. MRI Sunday. Karl Boyes will be one of the commentators

    Diamonds and I think 4 1/4. I have not been there in quite a while. They have three Diamonds and five Gold Crown 4’s in the tournament room. The streams are set up on the Diamonds. They are playing a race to 15.

    Senior one pocket tournament this year

    Rizzo and Bogies are the best. If/when we do have another tournament, there will be posters again. RedCard and I put them together every year (Mostly RedCard designing, I just get the pics, which is like pulling teeth for some guys).

    Oscar would tell you Gorst is the favorite. They are not playing for a lot and Gorst gets paid something win or lose. More if he wins. But I would never count Oscar out, he is promoting the pool room. By the way, I think they are playing ten ball.

    I'm Ready

    Oscar Dominguez is creating lots of action and tournaments at Hard Times, Sacramento. The Russians are there now giving clinics and matching up. Christina is playing one of the locals players some ten ball for 1k and Gorst is playing Oscar tomorrow night. These are all streamed, along with a one...

    One Pocket Match! $600 in the Middle!! - Race to 5 - January 29th 7:30PM PST - George Vasquez vs Rudy Boy Estoque

    I have played both these guys for years. When I was playing I gave George a small spot and then to even, and went from giving Rudy 9/7, 8/7 to getting 8/7 and not liking it. Both are fairly aggressive players and it should be a good match for me to sweat on a rainy day. Thanks for the stream.

    Joe Porper

    Dave, if I remember right, you played in our Mad Dog nine ball tournament at Edgies And got one of the shirts. That was Joe’s idea.

    Offense vs. defense

    I believe they would hold their own Bill, one way or the other. I can’t see any of these guys staying in stroke and running balls when they played Artie, always froze to a ball or rail, and watching him run balls himself back in the day. Ronnie would throw in a little gamesmanship with his great...

    Offense vs. defense

    It sure seems that way Doc. The ball pocketing ability, along with the improvements in equipment, have changed the game. All the top players can play smothering defense, but they all seem a little more aggressive.
