My Father's favorite game; in this era he would have been a champion.
Does anyone play snooker now, or if they do, it has to be very few. A lot of pool tables, but then I do not get around to places where there are even pool tables.

Snooker won't ever catch on in the US, but I got hooked when I moved to Italy and got EuroSport on the TV. Now, Ronnie O'Sullivan destroyed all competitors this year, and one of the commentators, a former professional player, referred to him as a "true genius." He gets into a rhythm, and all his opponent can do is sit and watch as he methodically runs the table.

Here's a great article:
