I find it interesting that some one-pocket enthusiasts think straight pool is too slow. They are obviously terrified of being stuck in the chair for so long (?).
Do you play chess?The problem with chess is you can study a game by reading coordinates.
For billiards people need to actually see how it looks and record it.
If chess can be simplified but not billiards its clear billiards is more challenging to talk about, to play and to write about.
Do you play chess?
thanx for all that extra info. just wanted to know if you like to play.Yes Im unranked and Ive dated a Womens International Master chess player. She introduced me to the Grand Marshall Chess club. Why chess players pay more in fees than pool players is crazy? Speed chess for the young is full of errors and officiating is worse than billiards. Chess is mostly played sitting down.
I prefer billiards its built on a design principle that supports mathematical thought at cosmic level. Billiards is played standing up.
Chess is the ground game like wrestling. Billiards is an upright game like combat striking systems.
