UJPucket, originally uploaded by jakedyer.

Here are some photos of the late, great U.J. Puckett. The pictures were taken by Ed "Redbird" Tarbutton at Top Cats Billiards in San Marcos, Texas, which is just down the road from my hometown in Austin. Puckett was a former national nine-ball champion who called Fort Worth home. He died in 1992, although some folks insist that U.J. Puckett is back.

Dear friend:

I just noticed your great pool blog while browsing the net.

I would like to show you a cool way to show shot layouts directly inside of your blog. This will greatly enhance your readers' experience while reading your posts. Once you have a layout embedded in a post. We will broadcast them through our internet shot browser to more pool players around the net. From there they can jump right into your post with a simple click.

Some top professional players such as Mika Immonen and Thorsten Hohmann have already embraced this new technology. You are welcome to check them out at:

For more information on how CueTable works in blogs, please check:

Our goals at CueTable are to encourage clear communication among a newer generation of players, to promote ideas of sharing within the billiard community, and to display heathy messages of pool to the general public. Let's work together and share all the great ideas and fun with everyone!

Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments or suggestions.

Thank you.

ps. here is a layout you can use to test, I have modified the width and the height to fit the layout to your blog:
