    I used to play billiard but the moment I played Snooker I was hooked. Other snooker players?
    Me and my friend are so equal we end up playing the black ball to win the frame. I though like playing snooker and chess. All the best Yours truly

    Bruno Rutigliani used to come to the base at Sigonella to play pool with Americans. He was amazing at any that involved balls and a stick.

    A game first played in India in Indian Army Officers messes. Invented by Sir Neville Francis Fitzgerald Chamberlain, KCB, KCVO, KPM (13 January 1856 – 28 May 1944) in Jubbulpore (Jabalpur), India in 1875. Apparently he got bored by billiards.

    The first time I was scared of the size of the table some 3 meters. Then I loved it. Now give me the points flor colour balls. Easy.

    Should try the version played by Arch Chancellor Ridcully of the Unseen University where the balls can switch dimensions in order to pass through obstacles. See Terry Pratchett's Disc World series :marble1:

    Most who died did so in their first year there. If you survived your first year you were "seasoned" and likely to do your full tour which was about 3 years

    The other Trump is a bogie man for Ronnie O´Sullivan. When Ronnnie said he was back for only the money I started hating him. You love it or you don´t. Money is not the big picture. It is your small picture.
