kaysirtap, you are exactly right. I have a 12 foot table in my basement and I love having people over to play. It gives people an opportunity to learn a bit about the game who would never step up to a table in a casino. I and my family and friends have a lot of fun with it. I do practice shooting on it, but I have found the main benefit is in the entertainment value. If I could get enough people on the forum interested, it would be great to have them over for a practice session.
