Re: Can you find this pool ball? $100 Reward.

The real crime here, imo, is not having the numbers in stylized 8-bit graphics

And a couple more branded sets from Australia. As before with the Pac Man Balls neither are really to my taste.

Re: Can you find this pool ball? $100 Reward.

Hello, NLSoldier.

That is extremely generous, sir, thank you very much indeed.

Whilst on the subject of writing, I'm currently working on a semi autobiographical book about my thirty plus years of playing pool. It's mainly focused on tricks and tips, but also features plenty of anecdotes from the many characters met along the way.

If anyone would care to review a chapter all feedback, including any constructive criticism, would be sincerely welcome and gratefully received.

Best wishes.

Are you familiar with the viffer (I think he was "dippy dave" in the pool world) drama from a few years ago? Keith McCready's girlfriend Jenny and viffer got in to it quite a bit here, but I think it all ended up getting deleted.*

Hello, Gregorio.

I do recall Viffer playing Efren Reyes and Francisco Bustamante a few years ago, but the Keith McCready drama you mentioned somehow passed me by unfortunately. What a shame! Considering their reputations for both being somewhat fiery I'll wager it was an interesting encounter to say the least.

Best wishes.

Hi Ruperman,

I'd be happy to review a chapter and offer suggestions. I have experience with both words and pool.

Re: Can you find this pool ball? $100 Reward.

Hello, ElSapo.

That is most kind, sir, thank you very much indeed.

I'm sitting in the sunshine having a beer or two at my local pub in Devon, England at the moment, but when I arrive back home later this evening I'll post up a chapter here on this thread for review.

The section I have in mind is twenty pages in length (with diagrams) and features a collection of 'betcha' trickshots a hustler might use to fleece an unsuspecting victim.

Best wishes,
RC.

Book chapter for review.

Good evening, everyone.

As mentioned, I'm currently writing a semi-autobiographical book about my thirty-something years as a pool player, mingled with a few coaching hints, trickshots, and anecdotes meted out by the many colourful characters met along the way.

If one or two knowledgeable folks of the 2+2 forum could find the time to review the chapter offered below, any feedback and constructive criticism would be most welcome and appreciated. Naturally, I hope you all consider it a fine piece of work, but honest appraisals are very important to an author so rest assured any negative comments will be received with thanks and good grace.

A few brief points, if I may, before posting the chapter:

1) Please don't judge me too harshly because of the diagrams, they have been drawn rather hastily in order to help readers follow the accompanying text and will be considerably improved upon in the final draft.

2) The blank box in the bottom corner of every other page will feature thumb-flick photographs of certain trickshots in motion.

3) I am English so please forgive spelling differences and any particularly British turns of phrase.

Many thanks and best wishes.

Chapter twenty's place in the table of contents, just to give an idea of its context within the book.
