He needs more than 1000 subscribers to monetize. He also needs 4000 watch hours as well which I doubt he has with only 4 videos posted. If he wants to monetize, I would start uploading content now...

To be fair, I canít think of a single pro level snooker player who has tried for any period of time. Outside of Stuart Pettman in the DCC competition that is. I really donít know how well pro...

When I watched Irving Crane's 150 and out I noticed he do that bridge twitch too. Though I think Crane's was a bit more delayed. I want to say that Caras also did it from the few videos I saw but I...

Exactly, he did a great job of getting sponsorships for his players in '80s and helped to expand the profile of snooker through exhibitions around the world but he did not manage the WPBSA until very...

Kids and teenagers tend to pick up skills very quickly and easily. Much more easily than adults. I’m a much better guitar player than I am a pool/snooker player and I started guitar at 14 and was...

I once played 8 ball on a snooker table set up for Golf. That was absolutely brutal.

I think your premise of basing the difficulty of the game on the standard of competition is spot on. It may be easier to pot balls in pool, but pros have become exceptionally good and consistent...

KaÁi may not have a background in snooker but what impresses me about him is that he is so solid over the shot. Almost no body movement whatsoever on the shot where a lot of pros still lift their...

Iíve never seen him play but I donít doubt that a lot of the English 8 ball players are solid snooker players too.

As an aside, I would love to see the WPBSA extend a tour card to the winner of...

Of the pool players who dabble in snooker, Chris Melling is easily the best of the bunch. He is at least competitive with players on the tour. I think Alex is a touch better than Kaci, but Kaci is...
