He doesn't play 3-cushion either these days but it should be noted that he holds 5 world
championships in another  pocket billiard discipline. I was satisfied with how I did. It's a
different game. The balls are heavier and the cushions are different. I kept hitting the ball too
full. You can't get the same follow with these balls.

Anyway, not a bad score overall.

I hear it is excellent.  And they have a good deal for players.  I never went to their buffet but I
have played there in the middle of the night a few times, once shortly after it opened, it is so
beautiful.  I'm afraid it's even a little fancier than the Roadhouse.  I cannot think of a more
attractive casino in Vegas in my mind.
