Thanks for the memories. I think I remember watching that before, but I have watched lots of snooker and other “pool” tournaments. I have wasted many a day playing snooker, eight ball, nine ball and my favorite table game “golf”.
Golf was also played on a snooker like table, with the rounded pocket rails. No short banks into the pocket. If you just missed your shot it would leave the ball there in front of the pocket for you opponent.
There was a place in Spokane, Wa. that had an over size snooker table(bigger than the twelve foot regulation one in the video), and there was always folks there playing a game of golf on it. It was a dime a hole. There was a large glass milk jug that would fill with dimes as the game went on.
I can still make the strokes and the shots, but I would need four pairs of glasses with different focal lengths to play the way I could once.
