    Cool Pool Moves - bragging up hubby

    Ok for some background - Hubby was playing for City Team Championships a couple of weekends ago. He ran the table (pool speak for made every ball on his one turn) up to the 8 ball. However he left himself terrible shape (pool speak for set up to hit the next ball) on the 8 ball. What he managed to next made the place go silent and the roar and cheer. Mick later recreated the shot on our table However he could not make it with everything set up exactly as it was. When he pulled back the cue ball away from the 8 ball he was able to make it on the 9th try. So the shot he made in the tourney ws significantly harder as the cue ball was snugged right up to the 8 ball. I have given the link below. It is youtube but a safe link.

    We all can assume that Mick's middle name is Efren! (But he is better looking than his namesake!)
