I think I'm bit!

Wife and I went on one of our bill paying trips to a local Mexican
restaurant the other night.  While going through the weeks mail, I saw
the USBA (?) newsletter that Bob J. sent.  Reading it made me decide to
stop by one of the Vietnamese Billiard rooms not too far from there.

The missus wasn't to interested in this "pool" without pockets, so we
had a couple, I knocked the balls around a little and went home.

The next day,,,,

I went back to the little VN pool room (USA Billiards) to give it
another try.  Now, I've tried to play a cute little version of three
cushion on my table at the house, but it's just not the same.

I figure I took 75-100 shots, and maybe scored 12-15 points.  I even had
a high run of 4. (Don't guffaw please)  

Now it seems as though I can't get enough.  I pulled out Byrnes' books
and read all the stuff about 3 cushion again.  I can't wait to get back
to that "pool without pockets" and see if I can beat my previous
performance.

Maybe I'm a convert?

On another plane,,,,  I think that paying close attention and really
looking at and studying the angles will help me in the long run in my
other pool pursuits.  It seems like playing 3C would enhance my
positional (and maybe safety play) abilities.  Who knows, I might end up
being a good 3C player.

"Good story."   Thought I share it.

        If your Wife enjoys shooting, try Straight Rail..It is a lot of
fun and a bit less difficult than 3-C.

Pat,

It may seem less difficult, but in actuallity, I believe it takes more
speed control,
gathering knowledge, and stroke to play straight rail, than 3 cushion.....
just
watch the Accustat's video on artistic billiards, there is a demonstration
of
straight rail..... I lovet this game.

Snookerly yours in the USA,

And if she doesn't believe women can play, show her the French Billiard
Web page where there is a picture of Huguette Sutter and Pascale Collinet
who were the finalists in the Women's Straight Rail Championship of
France (March 97).  Huguette had an 8.33 average and a high run of 89.
