I'm totally loving the 3 new 9' Diamond pro tables where I occasionally shoot pool. They replace a mismatched set of beat up tables that weren't regulation size... but I managed to win on them anyway (when my game was stronger).
These tables were just installed last week and are the gift of several of the players and a little donation from the county. I stopped by to check out the tables, and since this was the first time I've ever played on Diamond tables (1-piece slate!). They are Excellent, and since the pockets are a bit tighter than the previous ones, definitely more challenging, so I guess I have to up my game!
Did I mention that table time is FREE! Tough to beat that deal...
After I won the big quarterly tournament (on the old tables), I stopped competing and let the other guys get a shot at winning it.
Here's my little bit of immortality. A nice plaque on each table.
