    Was this OK?

    2018 DCC 1p semi. You can see the game score and ball count. Critical point in the match. Watch what Busty did during Tony's inning as it appeared Tony was about to pocket scratch.

    Just posted by Accu-Stats. I'd like to know who, if anyone, mentored Danny Smith in his youth. This is a phenomenal match with Efren.

    "He's got side boards"

    I heard that expression a couple times during the commentary to a 1p match I watched. I couldn't figure out what it meant by looking at the table. Anybody (everybody but me :o) know? Thanks.

    Cliff's break v. Runnels

    I caught this video last night and was surprised to see the way Joyner broke in the match. Have a look starting at 1:00. Ten foot table, 4.25" pockets. It was a good match, including a major sharking (well, looked like it anyway) put on Runnels at about 18:20. It was the 2012 Kamui Pay or Play...

    Bugs 1p bank shot for position

    Well, Bugs talks about its use as a 1p shot, but it IS a bank shot after all, so I posted here. :) Skin

    He scratched on the break

    This is a simple situation that I have been meaning to bring up for a while. Opponent scratches on the break and more times than not you have this shot available. Combo the ball by his side into the ball by his hole and try to drive both towards the stack to open balls up on your side. Should be...

    Is low inside out on the break now?

    I watch many of the live streams and pay particular attention to the break because I think it is a key shot. I have noticed that the trend seems to be away from low inside and freeze to the rail in favor of middle inside and leave the cb a few inches off the rail. Why??? Skin

    Two-pocket, one pocket table from Diamond?

    There is an interesting thread over at the other site where the guy from Diamond talks about some new tables, including 10 footers and a two-pocket only table for 1p. It's worth a read...well, what he has to say anyway. :D Looks like the 1p prototype will be on display at Tunica...

    To Dallas Billy (Dr. Bill) Incardona

    Bill, I'm not aware of what you were apologizing for in your thread but I want to tell you sincerely, on the level, that your contributions are helping my game. I am looking at the table and seeing things differently. I am much more aware of percentages (by nature I am an intuition player, ex-9...

    Skin's B Level One-Pocket Player Manifesto

    Ghost got a lot of mileage out of his manifesto, mostly self-propelled by the way ;), so I thought I'd post something for aspiring B players by an admitted one. Who knows, somebody great may post something like "AttaBoy" and make me look better, boost my ego. :) Reality check 1. You're not...

    early game decision

    Here's a situation that comes up often, especially in the early game. He's ahead 3-2. You have a makable back cut bank on a ball at the foot end of the table that will give natural position for a good run if you make it, will sell out if you don't, but you also have a good opportunity for...
