    Yeah I like Snooker, have you been following this years World Championship?
    I'm good at pool, but as you mentioned, it is on a different level..
    It's not until you get up close to a full size table that you realize how much practice the professionals must have put in to get where they are today.

    Last time I attempted to play on a full size table, I looked down one end to the far corner pocket and it looked like the eye of a fucking needle.

    exactly man, the angles just get so sharp. firstly you gotta respect the pot. secondly screwing the white off into a couple of cushions and ending up exactly where they wanted it .. all in the same shot ..

    and yea, when you try play snooker , your respect of the talent increases 100% . id like to start playing it actually

    they make it look so easy on tv, but when you have a go and a real size table it makes you realise how difficult it is

    yeah snooker is a big game, requires so much skill, I'm decent at pool and played snooker on a full size table once and it took ages to finish a game.

    That sounds pretty homosexual, anyway back on topic, I like playing snooker but not a real fan of watching it tbh but that Jimmy White vid shows some pure skill.

    jimmy white can drink a pint as quick as i can pour one into a bucket.

    he can do that thing that circus acts do when they swallow a sword or something, he opens up his gullet and just pours it away. seriously he can necka pint the speed you can throw one on the floor.

    english sportsmen are the best

    I used to be pretty decent at snooker. I got a 56 break once, which isn't shabby

    I'm the same as this really. I like watching it... but I would rather have a game of pool down the pub, at least I'm half decent at that!

    Snooker takes a hell of a lot of skill, some of the shots they manage to pull off are amazing.
