|Comment||Dear Pool Teacher, Thank you so much, first for the very speedy response and second for all the information you found. Especially the additional photos. I regretfully do not have any photos of my table prior to it being dismantled, so these are priceless to me. I did spend some time searching with out much luck so all that you found is great stuff. I will be sure to send you a photo of my table when it is finished and any other information that I find on the Carombolette Game. Thank you again for all your research and great information. P.S. Supposedly my Grandfather copied a table that was in the local pub in Mt View, New Jersey where we are from. Not sure when it was built but my Father & Uncle are both gone now so 20's, 30's, 40's ???|
I have wide ranging knowledge of all the cue sports, with the exception of snooker. I can answer most questions related to playing any of the standard games such as straight pool (14.1 continuous) eight-ball, nine-ball, one-pocket and 3-cushion billiards and the variations on these games. Questions welcomed regarding technique, strategy and rules, history of the sport, trick shots, the mental game, practice, practice drills, pool/billiards publications, and so on. I DO NOT DO CUE OR TABLE APPRAISALS OR IDENTIFICATION. See below.
I have been a dedicated player of pool and 3-cushion Billiards for many years. I have given lessons professionally and have run and participated in too many tournaments to name, including professional events such as the U.S. Open. I am also a cue collector and student of all aspects of the game.
Note: I was starting to get far too many questions about pool cue (and pool table) valuation and identification and will no longer take these questions, sorry. I am a player and historian of the sport and the heart of my expertise is not product comparison or appraisal.
