Thanks, Rick. Memory lane for me, too.

My friend John Burleson and I used to shoot pool in the early 80’s at a pool hall (Whitlock’s in Verona, MS) where they had three pool tables and one snooker table. The few times we entered 8 or 9 ball tournaments, part of our practice was to shoot lots of snooker just before the tournament. When you make the switch, it seems like the regular tables’ pockets are the grand canyon and so much easier to hit that huge target. We placed a few times (never won it outright) but I’m sure we did better than we would have.
