Can't seem to Find it anymore.

Occasionally a year Old 8 Ball match pops up on YouTube

but mostly 3 ball carom. a bit interesting but odd it seems to have taken over.
at least in south korea

So guess that game never ends. :laughing7:

I don't follow it enough to be aware of a different trend but I don't see how that game could possibly be more interesting than 9 ball. I remember playing games like skittles and bottle pool when I was young and it was fun, but still involved shooting the balls into the pockets.

I Think, If I remember Correctly.
9 Ball used to be Aired from Vegas & Atlantic city
I wonder if they are still a bit Frightened of Cooties
but doesn't seem logical in Vegas.

I played Mostly 8 Ball Tournaments.
But Loved Watching 9 Ball on TV

9 ball is definitely the way to test your level as there's not the safety net in having other balls to shoot if you blow your shape. It's been 20 years since I played, and even then it was getting back to it... so 30 years since I played a lot. At some point I might get back to it.

Yep , More impressive When someone Runs racks in 9 ball.
Though I'm still against Pushing Out , and Playing Safeties.
Though I know why they do it in 9 Ball. I'm so used to Shooting un-protected shots. that's why I rarely do good at 9 ball. I'll take the Chance on the Impossible Shot, even if it causes me to have to come up with a miracle :unhappysmiley: though it looks Good
When I get Lucky :laughing7:

Strickland was fun Watching. He's his own Worst Enemy.
Half the Cue-balls He Fouls , May have Hung up.
I think he Hated Shooting pool, once he started shooting better players then himself.
only in it for the big pot$ of cash.
