Silence is Golden

How did you start playing pool?

Was introduced to the local pool hall and that was all she wrote.

Do you have any advice for beginners?

Stick to the basics. Get center ball and top perfected before exploring with the English. Learn your tangent line.

Favorite pro:

I have a few favorite pros but I have to lean towards Shane VanBoening as my favorite. He has such a smooth stroke; mesmerizing to watch.
