    The Line between Gopher and Amazing

    The more videos I watch of Tony Chohan , the harder the line is to find, between what we used to refer to, as a "gopher or idiot shot" and a powerful response. I just watched him and Warren Kiamco from a couple of years ago. Every single time Warren had balls that were near his pocket and...

    Your shot , race to 3 for $300.00 real dollars . No backers involved Score is 2 to 2 games, you need all 3 balls. Your pocket is where the 9 and 10 ball are Your opponent shoots a bit better than you, but you are a bit more strategic. The game is about as equal as they get. I don't think it...

    Tom Wirths newest video

    Three different, rail first tickies, to go into a catchers mitt from positions that can sometimes be challenging. I have used the concept before , but the last one especially I would not have played that way until I watched the video, only because it seems as though you can't easily get the...

    Pool Know It Alls

    I just stumbled over this book , it is all about Fats family and especially his fathers escapades when he was young. It's fascinating to me and if even a tenth of it is true it makes him even more amazing to me. You can get it in ebook form for about 7 dollars but the majority of it is...

    The Desire to win

    The desire to win. How much value would you put on it? The subject of 2 players came up the other day. Neither one is above a B player but the young guy has plenty of potential. The older guy knows more , the younger guy shoots a little straighter. Older guy should win 3 or 4 games out of 5...

    I was just reading one of the Journal entries by Youngstown kid about the difficulty of running one pocket tournaments.

    Frozen Balls

    I have played a lot of good players who either did not see the shots, or did not know them. I use the systems to not only make balls, or move them to certain areas but also to play safe off of. If you have not incorporated this ability into your one pocket game , you are missing out on some very...
