Hmm.. I don't feel so bad now..
My home room in Tacoma had a full sized snooker table with Simonis 860 on it.. I used to practice on it with pool balls.. Long shots and all..
Later on, I went to Thailand for 45 days with the Army and after practicing and playing with the locals a bit, I was beating the best players the little town of Pitsanoluk had.. They were just regular players, but still.. A few bhat were wagered at the game they played, where the back row of reds were taken off..
I had a lot of runs of 30+, a few of 40+, and back in North America, I went to a tournament in Abbottsford, Canada and had a break of 50+ in what was probably one of only 2-3 games of full rack snooker I had played in my life.
Seeing that Corey's high run in competition was 68 doesn't make me feel so horrible anymore.
Than again, I only got to play the game for a very short time, and that was when I was 22. :grin:
Short Bus Russ... C player
Just think how good Selby would cue if he were to come over to the States and get some proper instruction. Personally, I think he gets down too low on the cue.:thumbup:
C players aren't 50+ breakers.
