    The Demise of East High Billiard Club

    I was looking through my old NBNs and noticed this article. East High Billiard Club in Springfield, Ohio (not Illinois or Pennsylvania) was the room where Willie Mosconi ran his record 526 in 1954. The original owner of this copy of the National Billiard News is also remarkable.

    Play the table or the opponent?

    Recently there were some comments in the turning point thread about playing your opponent, which I take to mean consider his skills, weaknesses and faults, and be sure to put him in a position where he will not be able to exercise his skills and his faults are likely to show up. The contrary...

    WWYD -- 9 ball total trap

    This is a position from the 2019 Mosconi Cup. This is a safety left by Filler. With the 1 and 9 where they are, giving up ball in hand is a loss. In the actual match, there was enough room to play the cue ball between the 3 and the 8 to hit the 1 ball, which Shane did. Suppose the cue ball is...

    Willie Mosconi's World Championships

    Since I don't have much else to do during the pandemic, I extracted Mosconi's World Championship winning performances from Charlie Ursitti's records. This starts from the first one he won in 1941. Note that in 1933 he lost by a single ball. From 1941 to 1956 there were some other championships...

    The Greatest Frame of Snooker?

    If you have a chance, watch the final frame (rack) of the Wilson-McGill match in the semi-finals of the current World Snooker Championship. They were hill-hill, or as they would say "in the decider" of a 33-frame match and tied at 16-16. The loser will get $130,000, which I think is the largest...
