SNOOKER!
« on: April 19, 2009, 02:26:35 PM »
So,anyone else following ?  ..-)
I know it is hard to follow for the Americans,but I hope mates from the UK could be into it..
Anyway,its time for the 2009 World Snooker Championship ...
I started following it after last year final between Ronnie O'Sullivan and Allister Carter(my fave #1)
Except Carter I also like Mark Selby,Neil Robertson ...

I knew Kick would start that  :rofl_2:

I watch it from time to time, but can't watch it to any great length, and generally wil only watch parts of the World Championship and not even much from that.

If snooker is a sport than so are the following:

Golf
Darts
Pool
Billiards
Horseshoes
Pooh-sticks
Shove ha'penny
Poker
Chess
Speed-reading
Rock-paper-scissors

bbc sorted snooker as a sport, If you seek the definition of snooker I spouse that must be sport-related...

I used to play pretty serious pool (about .... years ago), and used snooker to tighten up my eye. Snooker not only is a bigger table, but the pockets are rounded rather than straight diagonals, in addition to being small (with smaller balls). So you have much less play on either side to work with. You have to be very accurate. After a couple tables of snooker, 9 ball on a "normal" table is a breeze.

I actually played snooker only once,because it's difficult to find snooker table in this country  ..-) all the entertainment I have now is a pretty realistic snooker game on the internet..It's called ''PoolSharks''...and its pretty great .

Nice to see a Snooker Thread  :)

Well done to my man Stephen Hendry making it through to the quaters  :gleam:  :gleam:

Thank god the arrogant one is gone = Mr R O'sullivan  :bye1: :H :yay:

His comments that only he and Mr John Higgins where the ones in form

Well you was not Mr Ronnie O'sullivan  :whistle:  :whistle:

Did he not know of other hungry players around? Arrogant twit  :)>>>>

I never thought he would win 4 French Opens - Roger Federer on Rafa

Quarter Final Line up:

Maguire v Robertson (what happened to his hair  :( )

Higgins v Selby

Allen V Day (creepy eyes )

Murphy v Hendry  :cool: (Hendry 8th  ://  :// )

I forgot Mr Allen was colour blind, seems he has probs when the Brown ball is amongst the Reds, poor fella  :confused1:

Hope Robertson beats Maguire and Allen beats Day, and Hendry beats Murphy  :// and not too bothered about who wins between Higgins and Selby (although it would be nice if Selby won)

Should make an interesting match, if both play well, I have a feeling Higgins will win it though!!
