Brunswick Antique Brilliant Novelty Las Vegas Pool Table

We moved a very rare Brunswick antique brilliant novelty Las Vegas Pool Table for a customer.  The table was in near perfect condition.  You could never tell the table was over 120 years old.  Even the bolds and screws had no wear on them.  The pool table has been owned by the same family it’s entire life; passed down from generation to generation.  It was a great honor to move this table for the customer, and we took extreme care to make sure it was...

Crud Billiard Game

Crud Billiard Game

Here’s an interesting one for you.  The other day, we put together a pool table that was built in Africa (specifically Ethiopia), that is being used in a Crud Billiard Game.  Crud is a game played with your hands and not pool cues.  I’m not exactly sure how or why people like to play Crud, but theres a group of folks here in Las Vegas who love the game. This was a very unusual billiard table.  It wasn’t in the best of shape, and the owner said it cost $20 to build in Africa (pretty good bargain).  Instead of slate they used a marble playing top, and the table had snooker pockets. If anyone is interested in seeing the table, and playing a game of Crud contact us and we’ll send you over to the...

Building an Antique Brunswick Arcade Pool Table

Building an Antique Brunswick Arcade Pool Table

We received a call the other day from a customer who just purchased a 6 leg Brunswick Arcade Pool Table and wanted it assembled in their game room.  This table is over 100 years old and needed a lot of attention. The Brunswick Arcade Pool Table was the premier pool table used in pool halls in the early 1900’s, and as a result many of them did not survive.  On this particular table, the ball return had been previously patched together and tacked to the inside of the frame.  We had to build new support brackets to hold up the return trays.  The slate was also severely damaged and needed to be repaired and new backing created. The customer has plans to fully restore the table in the near future.  I’m sure we’ll be seeing this beauty again. Below is some additional information from Brunswick on the Brunswick Arcade Pool Table: http://www.brunswickbilliards.com/our_rich_history/antique_tables/arcade.html Arcade From the Billiard Table Catalogue 1922 & 1923 Carom, pocket or combination. 10′ table weights 200 pounds less than listed if furnished with only four legs. Carried in stock and can be furnished either with four or six legs-we recommend four legs only for the 4 ½ x 9 size. This magnificent design marks a new era in the highest class of billiard table construction and ornamentation. It carries a suggestion of the classic Greek and ancient Egyptian, touching a period when the Oriental splendor bid fair to outrival the more classic tones and studied effects characterizing the era when Athens claimed the right to school the world in literature and art. The severely plain in furniture, is now giving way to the lighter and more artistic coloring effects of inlaid decorations. Stock Sizes: 4 ½ x 9′ at 2,265 pounds and 5 x 10′ at 2,760...

Las Vegas Billiards – “The Shot”

Las Vegas Billiards – “The Shot”

If you love Las Vegas Billiards, you have to see this shot.  Simply known as “the shot”, Efren Reyes made a spectacular shot during a match against Strickland. Playing a safety, Reyes was trying to snooker Strickland behind the 6 ball, but Reyes pocketed a ball and he had to take the next shot.  This is when the miracle happened.  This shot will surely go down in Las Vegas billiards tournament history as one of the most incredible shots ever. In an interview with Reyes he told a reporter, “I thought I’d lost the match when I saw the 5 ball on the end rail like that. I didn’t think I could make the ball — I just wanted to hit it.” Contacted specially for this feature, Reyes had a slightly different recollection. “It was a do-or-die shot,” he said through his sponsor, Aristeo Puyat. “I was really going for it, thinking that I had a slim chance because the 5 was already near the pocket. I had a 10 percent chance. I didn’t have a safety in mind. I just hoped that if I missed, the cue ball would end up in a difficult position so Earl could not make an easy runout.” This Las Vegas billiards tournament was played at the Sands in 1995.
