Totally depressing and bears no relation to the sorry way that I play pool.

If you had read carefully you would have realised that I was quite jealous as I am of the snooker players who can not only belt a ball into the hole but place the white ball exactly where they want it to be. My snooker games are similarly depressing, to me at least.

What you are forgetting Jimv7, is that I bet most pro's could do this kinda stuff too, but these shots done win games. This guy has A LOT of skill, but he has probably got through a lot of tables, and I wonder how many takes it gets to get the trick right? If this guy could string together 100+ breaks, he would be playing pro snooker. Real skill is watching a player pull of an amazing shot, and like Gandalf said, get the white inch perfect on the table.

Maybe I'm just jealous because I could never do that kinda stuff in a million years. The only thing my pool is good for is winning a few pints at the pub (of course, after a few my accuracy tends to wobble!)

Sorry that was meant to be 'don't win games'
