I Love Playing SNOOKER!!

This could be very Long trying to explain everything. So. I’ll just do a few. This is Ronnie O’Sullivan. He’s clearing the entire SNOOKER Table for a Run of 147, also in Record Time!

It’s a Snooker Table that measures 6’x12’. The pockets are also smaller than the standard American POOL Table that is 4’x8’.

What I’m attempting to point out here is that He is a Master of what I call “STUFF”. (Draw Back. Follow, Go like Hell, Stop Dead after the initial hit, ETC.)

Stuff is making the Cue (White) Ball go to where you want it to go for your Next Shot, not just sinking the ball you’re presently aiming at. Just watch that White Ball, sometimes it goes around the Table and stops where He wants it to and sometimes it’s just a matter of inches.

That’s all the explaining you’re going to get. ..lol.. But. As always ASK AWAY if you’d like something else explained.

Okay! Okay! After you’ve sunk all of the “Cherries” and ANY Coloured Ball after each one, you then have to sink the remaining Balls in order starting at the far end of the Table. In Order It’s Yellow, Green, Brown, Blue (Centre Of The Table), Pink, Finally Black! YOU WON!!!

Watch The STUFF Happening when he does that shoot the colours in order run!

P.S. A BILLIARD Table is also 6’x12’ but it has NO Pockets. You figure it out ..lol..

“STUFF” is known Formally as “ENGLISH”.

There You Be Buddies! I hope YOU enjoy!

I learned to play pool on a snooker table. I started out at about 11 and played several times a week until hormones took over. The it was back seat bingo.

Boy, do I miss having a pool table in my living room. Many misspent hours playing my favorite game, 9-Ball. If you appreciate the game, you’ll love this. Efren Reyes, the legendary Philippine shooter, making a shot to bounce back from a terrible mistake he made in the deciding game of the final round in a major tournament event.

I was there to see it with my own eyes. One of the greatest clutch shots you may ever see.

Thanks for your Comments Guys! I’m glad that you’re enjoying the Post!

Yes Ripper, I’ve seen some of his shooting (Magic Shots). He is one of the best there is!

Many, many years ago I saw Willie Masconi put on a show in Rapid City, SD. I was quite young and it took place in a pool hall everyone called “The Hole.” It was in a basement of a multistory bldg. and was quite large. As I recall he was employed by Brunswick. He put on a good show and was very kind to all and had a patient manner with the kids.

Jerry: Willie Masconi is a Legend in His own time. He’s played Ronnie a few times. I think they BOTH have a lot of Respect for each other!
