Lets see your cues, tables, videos etc.

Here's my two main cues. One is a Lucasi L2005sl with an Elkmaster M/H milkdud tip and the other is a cue made by a local guy names Paul Giroux. He made some pretty cool cues before he retired. They're both 19oz and they're both as strait as an arrow.

I used to play 9 ball on an almost nightly basis, but I never got into it enough to have my own cue.

I haven't played game of pool in few years. I can imagine my level of suck would be nice and high.

I only started playing again about a year ago but I got my game back pretty quickly. I'm supposed to be joining the local APA scene soon. I've never played in a league. I usually just do bar matches and bar tournaments.

We used to have a table at a friends house where we played alot, but we trashed that one because we were playing on it drunk all the time.

I was big into bowling back when I was in high school - I played in a couple leagues. My average the final year I really played was in the 175 range

My parents have a 1946ish 9' Brunswick Centennial with all of the options. It's a very expensive/desirable table that my dad is super protective of - at grad/big parties, I or my friends have to be in the basement to keep younger cousins away from it. The slate is from Pennsylvania (super dense compared to the Italian slate used today), comes in three pieces and is 1" thick. The table easily weighs well over 1300 lbs

I just use a one piece valley cue - nothing special. The balls my Dad bough are fairly high end as well. We're currently looking for the matching 10' snooker table

^ It just sort of fell in our lap as well! My Dad was hemming and hawing over a Gold Crown and told the dealer to sell it to other guy if he could because he was going to be out of town for a week. My Dad went to the dealer when he got back to buy the table and found out the dealer had sold it the day before. The dealer ended up taking my dad to his backroom where he had the Centennial in pieces waiting to be restored and sold it to him for very reasonable price (including complete restoration)

That's only a baby. I would be worried if the wood is warped and rotting from being in a Florida basement during hurricane season, but at $180, it's essentially disposable.

I love billiards but I'm far from an expert. I usually school my friends because I've been playing since I was very little. We have a table at my house, but currently it's out of service because it's sort of buried under **** my dad is waiting to sell online. I do love to play though.

I've played a few nights a week with my buddies at the local bar for the past few years. Mostly not very sober though, and if we do play seriously or for money I usually don't do too well compared to others there. But it's a lot of fun and I'm always down to play. I can at least put a few balls in the hole before someone runs the table on me haha.

Hell yes, I love playing pool. I joined the APA 9 ball league 2 years ago. Play every week. I have a Viking and a Mcdurmott cue.

I've been playing since I was about 8. Played everyday when I was stationed in Phoenix. That city is a great place to learn to play good billiards. Haven't played too much in Vegas though. I played in one tournament out here and the guy playing on the table next to me was a guy I saw on espn a few days before (alex pagulayan). Kinda intimidating IMO.
I've had so many cues I can't really remember all of them. I recently sold my BCM cue by Bryan Mordt out of queen creek AZ. I now currently shoot with a meucci 2 point with a pre-dot shaft. Old meucci cues are def. My favorite cues.

Love playing pool, usually just go out with friends. We sometimes go every night, other times it kind of dies off for a few months, local tournaments and that sort of thing is all we really do, there are some damn nice tables around here though. I've always meant to get my own cue but car parts are just more important to me.


Slightly related note, Mike Massey came into my old work all the time, almost daily, his wife always wanted us to bake cookies for her dog with vitamins inside because he wouldn't eat anything else. Funny stuff.

I joined an APA team tonight. Kinda stoked about it. Definitely a change of pace from the I play a tournament at a local bar on Thursdays. The team seems pretty fun and laid back.

8 ball or 9 ball? Did you start off as a level 4?

8 ball. And yeah they started me at a 4. My team seems to think I'm a 5 but they want to keep me at a 4 for now.

Yea, being a lower rank has huge advantages if you actually play better than your rank. Easier wins. lol

I play at a local bar during the day (not allowed in after 7 because I'm underage) on most Mondays. I'm not that good but I'm pretty decent. We used to have our own table but we had to sell it to make room at the time. I wish we could get another one. I hate having to pay.
I really want to learn how to play snooker but I keep forgetting to look It up.
