Iíve tried...itís painful! Gave up very quickly!

That said (apparently) some players (I mean top level players not bangers like me) practice for Chinese 8-Ball that way as they donít have access to Chinese 8-Ball tables!

The new crop of players from Asia and Russia were bred to pool in basically factories standing in line 10 at a time, learning from the same instructor doing the same drills. Pretty much what they do in the snooker schools. It's like watching a robot doing free throws instead of watching humans play a basketball game. I don't WANT perfection in my sports, humans are not assembly line products. That is why players that learned on the road will always be more entertaining.
Most snooker players aren't like that. Judd Trump's stroke isn't straight, he cues up off centre and straightens as he delivers. Ronnie and Mark Selby move all over the place. Steve Davis, Hendry and John Higgins are pretty text book, but most the other top players over the passed 40 odd years weren't/aren't. I don't really know about 'snooker schools'. Other than some of the young Chinese players, most are self taught.
