I disagree!

It was neither pretty nor ugly, it was just gash.

Re: Capital Venue Open - feedback and afterglow etc

Really enjoyed this tournament. The Venue was excellent and it was great to have a top quality table to play on. I really like the Leonhart table, but it would be even better if they can develop a good ball and stick with it. I've now played with three different Leonhart balls in the last 6 months a...

Re: Open-palm grip for beginners

The open-palm for beginners sounds rubbish. Who wants to learn a shot with tells and poor ball control? You are much better off learning the open-palm for pros which has good ball control and no tells.

Re: Square Pass and Catch

Ahhh, Mr Worthington. Haven't seen you since...the last trolling incident. What's the matter, do you not feel like you have the authority to troll since you are now BFA Treasurer and not Chairman?

Re: TORNADO EUROPEAN OPEN GERMANY FLYER

Allowing UK promasters into an amateur event on a familiar table should not be encouraged. This would be really unfair for the genuine amateurs and would be detrimental to the grass roots of the game.

Perhaps the BFA grass roots champion would like to make a statement about this?

Re: ifp classic

Thanks for the comments, here is a little taster of the event: This was a really fun tournament! It was set in Harrah's holiday resort in Tunica Mississippi, which is a bit in the middle of nowhere, but has all the key ingredients for a good weekend (foosball, alcohol and casinos). The accent is a s...

Re: Leonhart WCS Results & Reports

Thanks for the support. We were almost out in the quarter final when we were down 4-1 in the 5th game against a team from Denmark before coming back to win 8-7. This was a very tough Rookie event; reminded me of the US a few years ago before Mary changed the rankings.

Re: Elbow Rooms, Shoreditch - 4 x Fireballs

The Maple Leaf in Covent Garden. It used to have a Fireball, so imagine our joy when we discovered a good old Garlando glass top had been placed there instead! Complete with traditional unmovable (never been lubed) telescopic rods and shoved in the corner like all good garlandos seem to be. Just whe...
