    obvious Strickland
    Busta
    Reyes
    Mosconi

    American style play

    I think though any top 5 snooker player great would destroy them overall it's been proven many times

    But not other way no great pool player has owned at snooker

    Pool though I think Strickland at his best he was unreal

    Any top 24 professional Snooker player, given 6 or so months of adapting, would wipe the floor with any pool player on the planet.

    Grew up with Eddie Charlton as the king but that was years ago, I was a kid and it was snooker.

    Thought Americans played/called it 8 ball?

    Mark Selby, the current World Snooker champ and the best player in the World, a Snooker pro since 2001 played pool as a hobby and won the World Pool Championship in 2006.

    The difference in difficulty, tactics and precision is huge.

    Which pool championship is that? Because the 2006 WPA World 9-ball Champion is Ronato Alcano.
