Can you show us where it cuts part of the pool stick off? By what method are you trying to make the background transparent? And what is you final intent for the image?

Here it is

I also have a Tiff with all the layers and selections. So if you need them to modify the selection PM your e-mail because the file is 380KB.

I have applied 0.2 px feathering to the selection.
Just apply drop shadow of your choice and its done.

Edit: Click on the attachment to open in new window, then drag it to desktop.

I'm assuming you're using the magic wand, and it's also selecting part of the right-hand stick (because it's just about as white as the background in spots). One question, is the tolerance for the magic wand 0%? (Just in case the pool stick is slightly off-white). If so, and it still doesn't work, try this: to quickly fix magic wand not quite selecting the right stuff, first use the magic wand, then switch to mask mode, then just paint the areas that are wrong, adding or substracting as necessary, then switch back to normal editing mode.
