    Slept balls and when to respot

    I'm sure this has been addressed before but maybe my small Canadian brain cannot absorb the humor me. Scenario 1: Player A owes a ball and has one or more in his tray. Player B shoots and after NOT MAKING A BALL (it's now Player A's turn) they realize that "A" owes. When does it...

    old rules question - frozen balls & rails

    I know this has been addressed. I did a quick search and could not find this exact issue so I will ask our esteemed members. Situation: Cue & 3 Ball are frozen to each other (or not) but are BOTH touching the rail (X1). I believe the rail X1 is dead to both balls and if you make a play on the...

    Happy early July 4th - My American Friends

    My American Friends, This year has been a challenge. I can honestly say that 2020 can go F-itself. C-19 and all the other turmoil has made this a year to quickly forget. Yesterday was Canada Day (our July 4th). I hope you all have a great and safe time this Independence Day. Go off and...

    Possible first trip to DCC

    Got some possible business near DCC this year (no jokes please) and thus considering dropping in. For you seasoned DCC guys: 1. Do I need to buy seating before I go down or can I get good seats while down there. 2. Other than the TV table can you watch other matches? 3. Is there a cost to enter...

    This might have come up before but it came up during our tourney between Bee and myself (FYI a good this is not a jab at him). Early in the game Bee has a ball near his pocket and I'm struggling to get out of his break. I try getting him stacked up and make a ball in the side while...

    I was sharked!

    OK this has gotten out of hand. I wasn't going to say anything but on the plane ride home it got me thinking. No Nick...people have to know. Well last year was my first ever One Pocket Tourney. Ran out of gas but I figured I could do a little better with some experience. Last year my second...

    Coming in early for our tourney and need to spar

    I'm coming in earlier than expected and thus need a sparring partner for Thursday night. Based on the list I think I'm coming in from farther than anyone else and the only person crossing a border (assuming The Don will let me come in). I don't fly and play well but will try and keep up for a...
