    I can play if you want, though I have never played it so I'd lose quickly

    yeah would be nice, but give me an hour to get the imagination of a feeling for the table lol

    i only think bih isnt needed when potting a ball into a wrong pocket, passing turn is enough imo....aslong as you dont exploit it lolol

    I play the game to have fun. I don't give a darn what order the balls go in or what you think about my smash and hope style of play. If you don't like it - quit. Remember "If the nine isn't rolling, the nine isn't going!" Seriously folks, it's a GAME.

    gg, that was fun, but i desperatly need a cigarette (have them in the cellar lol) and to the bathroom

    Yes completely agree Nanny. It's funny watching these players smash away at the balls when there's a perfectly runnable table or a great safety available. The fact that they'll make something more often than not makes it too tempting I guess, and when the cb travels five rails and scratches... unlucky! Of course they'll lose against more strategic players in the long run but since they rarely play more than a race to 1 it might take a while before they realize :).

    I don't know if the Dallas table is available on pc yet, but it's definitely the way to go I'd say. Not to mention that bright blue cloth on the Miami table can get a bit too much imo. Darker cloths are easier on the eyes for long sessions B) :).

    Lol I agree. Almost every player in Miami tier tries to combo the 9 as soon as they can, even if it's just the wrong shot, too. And sometimes they'll fluke something in the process

    So true :D . People will go for such low percentage shots at the 9 while all the balls are in the open. Why are they playing the game in the first place lol? Maybe there's a way to change MC coins into bitcoin that I don't know about :D .

    And nice gameplay @christhecueball . One pocket has got to be the most strategic game on the felt. Cool added element with the solids n stripes version too where u can cover your opponents pockect with your balls.

    If anyone on mobile wants to try one pocket I'd be up for a game :)

    I'm the same way with pick-up basketball. My teammates keep whining cuz I just throw the ball at the net as soon as I get it. Good news is I've got the court all to myself these days :p

    If you as a MC 9 ball player have not developed an eye for a good simple strategy for a table run or a safety game in lieu of. You're just not doing it right. Sure, you may win once in awhile but most of us are laughing at you.

    What "term of service" are you referring to?

    If I, as an 82 year old have not developed a sense of humor and ways to enjoy myself, then I am in a mell of a hess. And if you are laughing, thank us fun lovers for some relief from your self righteousness. :)

    You have your fun players, and then you have your competitive players. Nothing wrong with either, the two can get along if politeness is used.
