Pool/Billiards/setting up a pool table

I have owned my Olehausen table for just a couple of months. I am getting ready to break it down and move it to a new house we are working on purchasing and think that this forum and Bill's answers have helped me tremendously. I have never owned a pool table before, so I have never had to worry about the upkeep of one. I will save this page to my favorites and will definitely access these answers when I begin my set-up.

I can answer questions related to shot-making, aiming, position play, strategies, practice, mental preparation and the psychology of the game. Also, rules as they vary from venue to venue and how to become a winning player. I have experience recovering and maintaining tables and will also answer questions related to cues and billiard equipment. However, I prefer not to make brand recommendations. I do not offer information identifying old tables and equipment or estimating their values.


I have played over forty years in every state in the US (except Alaska). My experience is largely in pool rooms but I have also played extensively on bar tables and in league organizations. I have directed numerous tournaments up to the professional level and have played several world champion players. I am a former Billiard Congress of America instructor.
