I love billard Carambole (French billard) of course ie without hole in the table and with only 3 balls. Three-cushion billiards is my preferred variant. But I didn't practiced since years

I also appreciate watching at Snooker, but I dislike defensive parts.

groar, I can't find a place with a billard or snooker table around here any more. used to be a cool place when I was growing up (wasted a lot of time there) that had regular and snooker/carome tables. The pockets were tight on the snooker table, good practice.

Spend a few days on the snooker table and the regular table pockets seemed hard to miss

A pool table is an idea that I'm toying with putting into the basement. I'd love to have one. We have the room...but my wife is also italian which means we need more room for a downstairs kitchenette.

I'm working on pursuading her that we need a pool table more then another kitchen for our large family gatherings.
