    It was before 16299 was released to the Fast ring on the 26th, and now 16299 is released to the Slow ring tonight 28th.

    Gosh I am so impressed. I play for a team in Aberdeen.

    A few years ago when I worked in Denmark, I was in my local pub where I played quite a lot and generally beat most locals. I went in one night and I was only person there. The tiny but gorgeous owner of bar (nice things in small packages) asked me if I fancied a few games.

    I was surprised and said yes. Of course being a typical arrogant male, I assumed this would be a walkover but she thrashed me in first game and I realised she was really hot (at Pool as well ).

    We played nine games - I won one and that was more luck than judgement.

    I said to her that she was the best pool player I had ever seen, and she laughed and said "Well, I do play for the Danish Ladies International Team" !!!
    Yeppers, dynamite do come in small packages. :)

    I got thrashed tonight. But no more than I expected because I'm only a 2 and played a 3. Daughter is also a 2 and played a 5 and got thrashed too. She did win her two matches with a 3, though.

    :) I admit that it can be confusing to keep track of all these, slow ring, fast ring and skip ahead builds, especially if for some reason one miss an announcement or two. But I assure you, all has been released in chronological order in each Ring. :)

    One thing I can recommend is to practise on a snooker table. Back when life was still OK, I had a snooker table at home. Although it was not full size, only a 9 feet table, but playing on it improved my pool game, too, simply because the pockets are so small on snooker table, smaller than on pool tables.

    When the downhill started, it was first item to be sold. A shame...

    On a full size Snooker table, one almost need binoculars in order to see the tiny balls and the pockets in the other end of the "airstrip". :)

    But yeah, it helps developing real pool skills. Eight-ball and similar is easy once you can call yourself a proficient amateur Snooker player.

    I've had my fair share of Pool games and a lot of special skill practice, where goal was to make the moving balls stop within a few square inch area, so that next ball would be easy to pocket. :)

    In terms of ball skill, having snooker experience helps. However most people only play "bar rules" in pool e.g. you carry a free shot and only get on shot on the black, or variants of this.

    League Rules (World Pool 8 rules) are much more sophisticated e.g. either the cue ball or an object ball must hit a cushion if you do not pot a ball, you can do combination shots ie pot your ball and the opposition's ball eg to free up a blocked pocket.

    On any foul shot, you can return cue ball to baulk etc.

    This make REAL Pool a much more tactical game - you have to use any free shot immediately or lose it if you pot your own ball, so you always have to think how to use your free shot.

    Make a single mistake and you get punished.

    I have played many young lads who are better potters than me in league rules, and beaten them simply due to better tactics.
