I was just thinking, over here we have our 7 foot 'snooker style' (i.e. English) pool tables and over in the US you have your bar boxes....now with Chinese 8-Ball gathering traction is there perhaps a huge opportunity for a 7 foot snooker style table, but configured to take US size balls.

If it was to come off it could help unify 8-Ball globally and would surely be good for the game. What do people think?

(I specifically mention 7 foot tables, as outside the US in my experience pool tables are either 8/9 foot American or 7 foot English and the idea of a table that is a little bit familiar to everyone seems to make a lot of sense).

I was thinking it would be really nice if everybody would fill in that little location box so we all knew where "over here" was actually located.

The clue was in the first line ;-)

The other side of the pond!
