I love both games!
Pool is MUCH more common in Texas (at least west-TX) so that happens much more than snooker for me.


Even a bad day at the table is better than a good day at work!

A man is what he makes of himself.

I'm about this close to giving up on all pocket games
I can't run any kind of rack

And while I will probably try snooker atleast once, that will probably be all,

I get the impression from watching a live stream last night of local players who I know are good at making balls


But they were missing soooo much on the snooker table
While making breaks of 20-60s at times

It would just be far too frustrating for me

I'll just stick to Carom play and admire pocket games from a distance

Sorry to hear it. The people that play snooker enjoy it because it is so difficult and you get great satisfaction for slamming in a long ball or making a 50+

I'll go so far as to say I enjoy learning the local table well enough to take advantage of its idiosyncrasies: hit a ball slowly enough along the long rail, and if loses nearly all its speed just in front of the side pocket, it'll swerve and drop in. Huzzah!

The table has probably been fixed since I pulled that trick. The little swerve only worked on one side.

Never been. It's an hour drive for me. Makes little sense to drive there and pay to play when I have a perfect snooker table at home.... Go check it out, there are usually lots of players to play against!
