    Can't watch pool anymore, Snooker is so much nicer

    Really, I can't watch pool anymore. If you compare World Cup of Pool against recent Snooker matches it's like watching infants in their toy cars competing against some serious Le Mans racing. And yes, I'm also talking about the commentators. Pool

    Looking for good Snooker (cue) tips

    Hi all, wasn't very satisfied with my O'min Medium 9mm. I'm definately looking for something softer and "grippier". It also glazed rather quickly. I put on a Talisman just now, but I'm in the mood of trying out things. 9mm shall be available out of the box. Do you have some good tips (haha)...

    Observations: Earl Strickland

    Dear all, recently I've been observing Earl Strickland's playing (2014 and 2015) in various tournaments, most recently the Chinese 8-ball masters. Still chalking up very carelessly (which irritates me greatly), and can't play a safety if his life (game) depended on it (which it really did all...
