I used to play a LOT of pool when I was younger and was lucky enough to play at a pool hall that had a snooker table. Believe me – snooker is a lot harder than regular pool. The pockets are not much bigger than the balls and the corners are rounded, making it much tougher to pocket balls. Usually, if the object ball even touches the pocket, it rattles around and comes out.

What Ronnie O’Sullivan did in that video is unbelievable to me – he ran a “perfect” rack – that is he pocketed the black ball after each red ball, scoring the maximum points possible. I don’t know how often that’s done, but it has to be pretty rare, I would think. And the speed at which he did it is amazing too! He was definitely in the zone. If you watch closely, I think only one ball ever touched the side of a pocket, and it was rolling very slowly so it still fell. Otherwise, every ball was dead center in the pocket – AMAZING!!!
