Who hear plays pool and/or snooker?
    #9773340 - 02/10/09 07:24 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

So I've played pool for a while as a pub hobby and have recently gotten into snooker.

I enjoy snooker but it's a big step up from pool although I'm getting used to it. So who enjoys playing?

I play pool, but I'm not pool shark. Not anymore at least. The summer after my senior year of highschool all we did was drink and go to the pool hall every night. I got pretty damn good too, thought about buying my own stick.

A buddy of mine is a billiards-fanatic.  He has is own stick, stick bag, and would spend hours during our valet shifts with a coke bottle on a table, moving his stick in and out of the mouthpiece.

I don't know how he had such prescision - i could never do that shit 500 times in 10 min.

I love playing pool, just don't get to as often as I would like.

Got my own stick too.

Ya pool is the shit. I can play fairly well steaming drunk as I'm sure a lot of people can.

Snooker on the other hand,I haven't played that drunk and think it would be like pissing into the wind.

I prefer a heavier weight because I find it hard to judge with lighter cues. Especially if I'm playing dirty pool i.e. gaffing/snookering.

I have had it for about 25+ years

Haven't used it in probably 15.

It is on the heavy side though

I used to be pretty good, and occasionally I still pull off a really good shot from way down the table, but I'm definitely out of practice and most people would beat me these days. Awesome game though! One of the best classics.

Wherever the hero may wander, whatever he may do, he is ever in the presence of his own essence — for he has the perfected eye to see. There is no separateness. Thus, just as the way of social participation may lead in the end to a realization of the All in the individual, so that of exile brings the hero to the Self in all.

I enjoy playing pool while tripping. More challenging and fun.

Don't get to as much as i'd like tho.

During high school my friends and I would go to the pool hall daily.  I havent stopped playing since.  Granted, I dont play daily anymore though I would love to if I had the time.  Its more of a bar game to me now, but I can still win my buddies any myself free drinks all night :cheers:

At one point I entertained the thought of replacing my bed with a pool table instead. Then just sleep under the table or on it.

I'd love to play pool tripping. I imagine the break would be fun to look at. All the colours flying around.

Played on mephedrone the last two weekends and I can say I play exactly the same on it maybe even with a bit more interest.
