Since it is a recurring theme here at AZB to identify pool tables in countries around the world, I hope I am the first to contribute a table in North Korea, :D

Visit to a Small Planet

Playing pool with Korean officials one evening in the Koryo Hotel, which has become the nightspot for foreign businessmen and an increasing number of diplomats (to say nothing of the burgeoning number of spies and journalists traveling under second identities)

Great stuff.
Back in the early 70s, I played pool at an army post about 20 miles South of the DMZ.

In memory of the tea-girl Pun Yun Chi, we will never forget you. I will save you some day.

I like the sharking in the NK videos but they don't know it as sharking so its acceptable. Are we a bunch of prim a donas or what???

North Korea???

Why not just post photos of Isis Terrorists playing pool?

That little fat boy dictator's country doesn't even deserve being mentioned on AZ.

Don't play Kim a race to 7 because when you lose....and you will just on ref calls......he'll feed you to his dogs
just like he did his uncle after he criticized the little fat boy's irrational behavior, rants & raves.

Those rails seem incredibly dead. Perhaps if they pay for airfare, Real King Cobra will go over and take care of those tables? :wink:
