Just when I was about to give up on you

I've got an email! An anonymous reader who uses the nickname "Gripman" responded to my
previous post
sent a recommendation on his favorite pool hall. In his words:

"My favorite pool hall is Bogie's Billiards in Buffalo, NY. They have very good pool tables (8 Diamond Tables, 8 Gold Crowns) and one billiard table. But the best thing about the place is the helpful, friendly and nice staff that makes the environment warm and welcoming for even the most unknowledgeable pool player!"

That's in "Gripman" words. The place also received good reviews here

that's all for now. keep those emails coming!

Best pool room in New Jersey!


This week I want to recommend on the best pool room in New Jersey. It is called Q Ball Billiards and it is placed on 1501 Route 37 E in Toms River. In Q Ball Billiards, you can find the newest, cleanest pool tables in town and the best pool equipment in the state. The atmosphere is very friendly and even though the place is surrounded with pro players, you can still play without feeling intimidated. The service is also great and the employees are very knowledgeable and helpful.

If you want to recommend on your favorite pool room in the US or any other country, please send your comment.

All about One Pocket Pool

One pocket is one of the smartest, sophisticated pool games. It somehow resembles straight pool , but much more complicated and challenging since only one of the 6 pockets is in use. Actually 2, one pocket for each player.
The object of the game is to score a total of 8 point by legally pocketing the object balls into the specific target pocket. In other words, each time you pocket a ball, you get one point. However, if you pocket an object ball into the target pocket of your opponent, he will get one point, and so on.
As you can see, one pocket rules are not very complicated, but playing it requires a lot of experience with various shooting techniques.
Here you can find the official rules of one pocket and here one pocket glossary.
