I have been watching some of this and still can't believe these guys
can run a table of snooker balls.  I hope there are others that are
watching this, very interesting and informative.  I was watching on
Thursday morning and you should have seen a professional lose his
cool.  After missing a black ball shot, I think it was Jimmy White,
slams the cue ball back into the black and both balls fly off the
table and concedes the game.

I don't play snooker, I have on occasion in the past tried to play the
game, but I can understand his frustration.  From my time playing pool
and now from playing 3 cushion, nothing can be more frustrating than
when than when you just hit a shot with so much care, focus and
precision, and you hit your spot and just miss the point.  Makes me
want to break my stick.  In fact a friend of mine just broke his cue
this weekend over a missed 9 ball shot.  But to see a pro do this is
actually funny.  Just goes to show you, we all are just human.

quite a few things happened this week! there was a streaker at the crucible
wearing nothing but a mask!

Dominic Dale got very upset and threw his cue through a window and broke
into several pieces after playing terribly against Jimmy White

Also of course Bingham, was up for a maximum 147 break. he potted all reds,
and followed them with all blacks, got the yellow, green, brown and blue in
but didn't put enough power in the blue to get positioning on the pink...
very costly shot for a 147,000 plus 20,000 high break prize!!!

plus of course some amaizing snooker as usual

I have a friend that plays a lot of snooker, he is the absolute nicest guy
in the world when he's playing pool.  He never gets mad when he is shooting
pool, I once saw him miss a straight in 8 ball for $200 and just shrug it
off with a laugh.

Then I went and watched him play snooker for much lower stakes.  He was
pissed the entire time, he ***ed about everything, from the long rail cut
that he missed and still got a safe to the way his opponent was working the
wire.  He through his cue 3 times during the match and at the end ***ly
took his cue apart, put it in the case, and through both the case and cue
against the nearest wall damaging both and he actually won about 50 bucks
that day.  Later when I asked him about it, he said it's just a very intense
game, he's lost 5 friends in the last 7 years to strokes and heart attacks,
2 of which died right at the snooker table.
