    Interesting snooker battle

    Watch the first 11 minutes. It's amazing how tight they get these reds trying to avoid dropping the pink!! This whole match is long ,,but worth watching. I believe this is the 2nd round. Not RO's best performance but still good snooker. Ronnie O did end up...

    table difficulty and 14-1

    Do you get any credit for playing on a table that is rated as "very hard". LMAO I watch allot of videos of people running a 100 or more. And I see balls going in that wouldn't go on my table. Well at least I don't think they would,,,it is hard to say. Maybe I am getting frustrated because...

    Been trying to find a u-tube video

    Of a snooker player,,,that was hooked behind a ball. And tried a 3 railer,where the cue came to the side pocket,,went of both points ,,and came to rest, millimeters from the ball he was trying to hit. He did this 3 times,,,and was shooting it this way. It was not accidental. Playing the points...

    I mean the markers where the balls go for 14-1. What are they?? stickers?? Where can I get them?? I thought about using a permanent markers around the rack ,,but I'm a little nervous about doing that on my new table. It seems to me,,if anything is put in the area of the rack,,like...

    14-1 is good practice ,,,,

    Fianally got a 9 ft table. Greenhorn observation!

    I have always had a 7 ft home table. But now have a nice 9 footer and I have noticed a few things. I always wondered why the pro's would leave such a angle when playing. lol Now I know. It is huge,,,huge,,, on a 9 fter. On a 7 ft table it is much easier to get out of a straight in shot...
