the burton cons ball thief is back >:( this time one of the whites has vanished into thin air. its not stuck in the table as i checked , a bit funny though that mick said the pool table didn't have a cue ball friday night :-X.
i was reading a book about the dangers of drinking and smoking last night, so after tonight thats it. NO MORE READING
We had that sort of problem a couple of times but it seems the Pool whites are a slightly different diameter so check your own set sometime (line them up and place straight edge across tops), also BB whites didn't seem to work too well in Pool table as slightly bigger so sometimes not released just like the 'coloured' Pool balls. Hint: by mentioning this to a few pool players we found the problem stopped.
Don't have problem now - no Pool table :) ;) :D ;D
There's a box behind the bar with a load of balls in we'll have to put one of those in for the time being, makes me sick as i got that new set from Ken, first the red disappears now a white, coupled with the playability of the board changing from week to week i'm getting more and more fed up with it all :( :(

Male caucasian with one white ball :(
I have a feeling it is almost certainly in the pool table in which case as Sparky says it is bigger than the pool white ball I think that will cause them problems and we will probably get it back from there. We have taken one of the spare balls for now anyway
Has the table started to get sabotaged again as well? ???
The front left and back right are beginning to look bent inwards from the top, a result of the table being dragged along the floor, not sure that it's sabotaged, but it's not an ideal situation, the end result will be broken legs as all Jelkes tables are fragile in that area (Sav will confirm this), hope that doesn't occur but this whole issue needs to be brought to the attention of the clubs comittee.

I don't think the table is too far out Ian maybe a couple of little rolls here and there but I've played on worse. The legs have been a bit wobbly for some time now and never look to straight but I don't think the table is actually being moved by anyone, perhaps just people bumping into it now and then.
We have had the same problem in the Tandem. The best thing to do is if there are any balls left on the pool table when people have finished, just pick them up and hide them, this usually sorts the problem out :D ;D :D ;D a bit childish, but who cares :P everyones a child after a couple of drinks ;D :D ;D :D
