    The Ghost

    Thanks for posting this very fast match. I've never seen Jack Cooney play but I'm impressed. After a couple of mis-steps early on, he just dominated in each game. Very strong offense combined with decent defense. Not Bruce's finest match, but his opponent was out for blood.

    International open list

    Looks like only 32 players allowed in the one pocket tournament. I wonder how many of the nine ball players would have entered if the field were expanded. Filler couldn't get in or chose not to enter...too bad. 2022 World Player Lists (intlopen.com)

    International open list

    In case you didn't catch this, looks like Pat F. has accepted the onepocket.org rules as the official rules for his tournament. Must have done something right, y'all. Rules - International Open (intlopen.com)

    1p streamers, small gripe

    Since I'm still a working stiff, and have family responsibilities as well, I'm not able to watch the live streams very often. Most of the time, all I can do is let them run in the background, and every once in awhile I'll take a peek, maybe watch part of a game with a cup of coffee in between...

    At Hard Times: One pocket

    Today, Carl at HT told me that there would be no limit to the number of players, and they would be taking entries right up until the time it starts, he thinks.

    At Hard Times: One pocket

    Great to hear you are coming. Thanks for everything you are doing to promote our game. See you in Sacto! Hopefully it won't be 115 every day by then...

    I usually like that shot but not when there are balls near the head string available when the cue ball comes back down table off the line up.

    I'd bank the 10 ball, pocket speed and draw the cue ball two rails down towards the 13 ball. Most important element is leaving the 10 ball near my hole.

    The Hague op.o MOT Tournament Thread

    You got this Dave. Hopefully you're beyond jet lag, and now that you've got that table clocked, nothing should stop you from going the distance. My advice: shoot at your hole!

    nope, I wouldn't think to go for position like this, but I might try it next time

    Looks like we got Roland Garcia into stroke when he was in Fremont. Today in Texas, he's taken down John Morra, Tony and Sky! And he's breaking like a normal person...

    Have fun and good luck, Dave. Wish I was there! Maybe next year...

    It may look like that but if you are suggesting that he manipulated the rack to gain some advantage not available with a tight rack, then I'd say you were casting unfounded aspersions. Most of the time when I saw him do it a ball would pop out on his opponent's side, and he'd give up a shot...

    Not sure. He pounds his break shot to push as many balls as possible loose from the rack so he can get to running balls asap. Look where his cue ball ends up, just what he is trying to do with it.

    Watch the whole match. Roland Garcia could be really good at this game if he put his mind and time to it.

    At Hard Times: One pocket

    Thanks Joe. Count me in as likely dead money, but anything is possible...that's why we play the games, right?

    Cochran's and Palace Billiards

    In the 90's in SF/Bay Area/Sacto, I got to play one pocket against some great players coming through town, including Ronnie Allen, Shannon Daulton, Tang Ho, Mike Zimmerman, Efren, Danny Medina, Parica, Keith McCready (who lived at the Q Club for almost a year in 93 or 94), Youngblood, Santos...

    Cochran's and Palace Billiards

    There was plenty of one pocket to be played in SF/Bay Area in the 90's, whether at California Billiards or the Q Club/Hollywood Billiards, Town and Country in Daly City and even at Delbert Wong's Family, which was mostly 9 ball. Not so much at Sue Bachman's rooms. Jesse the Go Away Kid hung...
