    proper sport . Not physical but mentally draining

    Best moments

    Mine are Alex Higgins winning it in 80s

    Taylor beating Davis 85

    Share yours

    I expect uk replies I don't think USA know snooker ?

    Pool USA are savages

    But any snooker player beats pool player

    I love pool but played snooker my dad too

    Pool is big in America but I'd bet any money on snooker player beating them at pool

    Americans probably don't know snooker

    Reyes strickland pool vs white Higgins

    Modern era Ronnie or hendry

    I don't think a pool player can compete with a snooker player

    I've played both and love both

    Snooker imo is a lot harder

    Reyes busta earl vs snooker players is epic


    At pool snooker held their own

    Earl couldn't play snooker

    A lot more complicated than pool

    Pool is easy

    Any snooker player destroyes a pool player
    Just a lot more technical game

    Pool yes

    Snooker is a lot more restricted

    Pub game I agree but still very skilled

    Cool. I'm going to check out some videos on Youtube. Is it more of a game of feats like trick shots and bank shots or is it more about strategy and defense?
