The PQB-USBA Newsletter

Professor-Q-Ball's National Pool & 3-Cushion News was a bi-monthly publication that delivered up to-date information on pool & 3-cushion in the US as well as select tournaments worldwide. Professor-Q-Ball provided a custom on-line version of his magazine for the USBA with a particular focus on three-cushion billiards including events, pictures and instruction. You can read past issues of the newsletter on-line or download any Issue for off-line enjoyment.
