Sites Featuring Billiards Forum

I went on a bit of a web-browsing binge today (which sucks because it's way too sunny outside today) and found about 10 or so sites that are showing some detail on the Billiard site.

Most of them are just the result of some sites that run bots/aggregation, but some, like killer startups in the last post, are manual. We love the love, so keep it comin.

Check the billiards forum for more posts.

Submit Your Billiard Drills is looking for your billiard tips and drills.

Have some tips to share? Know some good drills? How about getting in on some of the action with us…

I started this site because one of the best ways I've found to learn something is to try to teach it to others. After all, I'm learning what works and what doesn't as I go through the process. If someone else can wade through it all just a tiny bit faster, then I've helped. Teaching or at least explaining something also ensures that you understand it yourself (unless you're a hack, of course!), so writing has always been a good test of my own knowledge.

The Pitch
If you have moderate grammar and spelling skills, an interest in sharing what you know and learn about pool, and the desire to perhaps earn some spending money, you might be a good fit. Some technical knowledge is a plus but not a requirement.

Currently, we don't have any publishing requirements, no weekly quotas or deadlines, none of that sort of thing. However, we are looking for people who can form more of a "staff" than submit an idea for one tip or a drill. If you've only got one or two drills in mind, thats great too. If you've got a head full of ideas, why, we want to talk to you.

What to Do
It's simple. Write up a few sample pool playing tips, and send them here. If you could, put something like "Join the Staff" or something in the subject. Explain to me in as many words as you need why you feel you would make a worthy addition to the staff. Ask any questions you have up front, too, because you'll get the honest dope back. If you're not sure if you want to join, send an email and just ask the questions.

That's all there is to it.

Happy holidays again from billiards forum. I just wanted to type a post to let everyone know about a new feature on our site.

We've cataloged over 2000 billiard stores, shops, and retailers throughout the USA. Each listing includes a map, phone number, and physical address. There is also a place where you can leave comments about the billiard supply shops.

Also, we've launched a new billiard video site called Billiards Television. It showcases billiard videos (and snooker videos) from youTube, but in a neatly categorized form so that you don't have to weed through the crap.

Pool Players Database

Welcome to the billiards forum pool players directory. We're working hard to expand the pool players directory which will showcase both current and past greats of the game of billiards. There will be sections showcasing Hall of Fame inductees as well as sections showcasing the current champions of the sport.

The very first entry into the pool players directory was Jennifer Baretta. As you all know the billiards forum loves Jennifer Baretta. Since 2006 we've done numerous articles on Jennifer which have been showcased on various other websites such as The next player in the pool players database with Steve Mizerak. The untimely passing of Mr. Mizerak was largely disappointing to the billiard world. We were ready to include the next pool player in the database after Jennifer and it occurred to us that no other player was more fitting for inclusion into our database then Steve.

Of course we couldn't forget today's great Mr. Efren Reyes. What then a few articles on Efren and they been well received by the readers. Unsure of how to proceed next we try to think of which player was deserving of the next entry into the database. Needless to say he came up with multiple ideas and were left with the decision of ranking them in order for inclusion. That's when Gary, the billiards forum owner and executive editor decided that we would attempt to build, all at one time, a comprehensive pool players database that our users can update as time progresses. That way all deserving players would have their on the website, and the users would have a way to add or update information as they saw fit.

Thank you everyone for reading this article and we hope that you'll stop back soon to visit our website and you are newly updated pool players database.

Pool Table Volkswagen Billiard Table

volkswagen pool table
Yeah. So check this out. Its a VW bus converted in to a billiard table. Thats as unlikely a combination as I'd ever expect! It was spotted at a classic and unique car show in the USA. Feel free to check out the article and more images over at the billiards forum.

I know that this is just like the craziest thing, but hey, you have to admit, it is pretty freaking cool. If someone offered to sell me that for the right price I just might have to accept their offer!

Victor Billiard Table


Yes, I know, it has been a considerable time since my last post but I've been busy building the new Billiards Forum release, which should be done shortly.

I'm posting now in hopes of finding someone with some knowledge about Victor Billiard Tables. Victor pool tables are no longer made, but there is a growing number of billiard enthusiasts who are working on restoration projects.

If anyone has one of these old Victor billiard tables, victor pool table parts, pictures of victor pool tables, or anything else of interest relating to this brand of table, please, leave us a comment and share.

Preparing Mentally for Billiards

Mental preparation is essential and may be as important as any physical skill in the game of billiards, just as it is in any other sport.

Focus, concentration, precision, consistency, and choice of shot are all very important skills in the game of billiards and they all rely on the mental to a large degree.

Billiards Forum has prepared an introduction to preparing mentally for billiards ; an article that should give you an idea of what to think about and how to prepare for games, practice, and competition. Feel free to leave feedback.
