    Pretty awesome stuff TS.

    Steve Davis and Jimmy White are the guys I remember.

    Too bad Cliff Thornburn was a coke head and Alex Higgins a drunk. Wasted talents IMO.

    I remember Stephen Hendry.

    I always wondered what those top snooker players would be like playing for money in bars on the smaller tables with bigger pockets, playing 8-ball. Would love to see the reactions of bar-level players not knowing what they are in for.

    Please explain difference between pool and snooker, I always though interchangeable.

    Imo hendry is goat .

    Most dominant player ever

    He would kill pool in his prime going from 12 x 6 table to 7x3 is a lot easier that's why a lot have snooker players have crossed over

    Go other way and it's hard

    The top snooker guys only messed around in pool but at top level mosconi us open

    Hendry white Davis Ronnie o Sullivan

    Europe won mosconi few times and was down to the snooker players

    Mark Selby multiple time snooker world champ and I believe 8 ball champ

    Most accomplished I think

    I used to, back in the early 2000's. The names im familiar with are the likes of strickland, reyes, mika immonen, thorsten hohmann, that era

    And o'sullivan too

    For some reason i got bored in the mid 2000's, would only watch if there's nothing else on tv

    Droughts and chess

    The latter is more technical and overall hard game

    Imo snooker and pool are alike

    Playing 9 ball to me is easier than 8 ball I'm no pro I played countty for a year but 8 ball is harder 9 ball pockets are huge

    I prefer 9 ball as it's more technical but game wise it's lot easier than 8 ball
    I know Darren appelton has crossed over he's one of best pool players ever and he's dominated American style
    He's English

    I'd love to see earl Strickland in prime at snooker at least old snooker guys like Higgins Davis hendry had a go at pool

    Strickland Reyes busta I don't think would ever have guts

    Different level snooker
