    Congratulations Shannon Daulton!

    Congratulations to Shannon Daulton for being elected for induction in BOTH the One Pocket Hall of Fame as well as the Bank Pool Hall of Fame! To be a great enough player to be enshrined in either H.O.F. is an awesome accomplishment. To be inducted in both the very same year.....that's just...

    Fred Bentivegna

    It was great to see The Beard finish tied for 16th out of 160+ players at Tunica in the banks division. Great shooting Fred! I'm real happy for you!

    A review of "The Legends Instructional Series"

    I'd like to offer this as a review of "The Legends Instructional Series", a 4 DVD set that has Nick Varner & Buddy Hall giving instruction on 8 Ball, 9 Ball, 14.1 & One Pocket. First, a little background. I've been in love with pool since I was 11 & I've been able to accumulate a nice library...

    Allen Hopkins vs Nick Varner

    If these two would have played a race to 50 in 1P, in their respective primes, who do you think would have won & by what score? Thoughts on their styles? Thanks.

    Buddy Hall vs Nick Varner vs Gary Spaeth

    Who would win, in their prime, playing 9B banks? In their prime, if they had raced to say 50 in a round-robin, what order of finish do you envision? I would like to hear you fellas thoughts on these 3 great players as they compare with each other. Thanks.

    Bill Incardona....Get well soon!

    Billy posted back on January 18th that he was scheduled for back surgery in Feb. He didn't mention the date. I marked the calendar to post something so we could wish him the best of luck and a full and easy recovery. I think he'll be in good hands! After all, him being a Dr himself, I think...

    2010 Bank Pool H.O.F. nominations?

    Steve, Will there be a bank pool inductee this year? I couldn't find anything on the forum that said one way or another. Are you accepting bank Pool nominations? PS-I promise not to nominate Shannon for the banks division. :D It seems like you and me get along real well except when I lobby for...

    What constitutes being a "Gambler" vs a "Funsy" Player?

    I responded tongue in cheek to a post from SJD where he mentioned "funsy" players vs the gambling crowd. But I been thinking about that most of the day. He brought up something interesting that I would like to hear your opinions on. Here's my question....Is there a bottom line minimum bet...

    San Jose Dick Interview

    Dear Mr Booth, Is there any way that you can do an in depth interview with SJD? We all know how busy you are with many things in life as well as just maintaining this site. But that (interviewing SJD) is something that really should be on a 'must do" list. We consider him one of the MVP's...

    Bensinger's vs Cochran's

    If each pool room, in it's respective heyday, could field it's all-star line up, which room would win the most money matches? Of all the great pool rooms ever in the USA (Allinger's, McGirrs, 711 in NY, St Elmo's etc.) I'd like to specifically hear the thoughts and opinions on "what if" the...

    Happy Birthday Grady!

    Grady, Happy Birthday to you my friend! I wish there were a new way to say "thank you" for what you've contributed to pool and for the info and great stories you've shared with us over the years. Suffice a very sincere "Thank you!". You are one of the all time treasures as far as pool stories...

    Jose Parica & Glenn Rogers

    Steve, What are the chances of getting Parica and Piggy to set down for an in-depth interview? The interviews you've had so far have been second to none. I know you're very busy with lots of things. Can you give it a shot? Thanks!

    Mike Sigel

    How would you guys rate Sigel's one pocket game? I was watching an old tape of him vs Johnny Ervolino and he seemed to play a real solid style. His banking prowness was a definite help, as was his shotmaking ability. Without saying too much more, I would be real interested in how some of...

    How's Grady doing?

    Anybody here check in with Grady lately? His last post here was on Aug 11 when he was grieving Randi's passing. He'll go down in history as one of the greatest players ever, considering what he's done in pool as well as what he's done with pool off the table. I hope he knows that he has many...

    In their respective primes, which of these two greats was the better banker? Comments on their respective styles, strengths & weaknesses are welcomed as well. Something else....Where would you rank these two on the all-time best list? Behind who? Thanks.
