    An avid player here (well....more of a 'watcher' actually ), and definitely interested to hook up for a game or two. Not a pro, but not a complete novice also. There's this place in Western called KC city that has a pool/snooker hall, and another on in Sheung Wan called Frankie's. Let me know.

    Thats looks good. So much interested players. What if we could play on Saturday from 11am-1pm? I think the snooker club in my area is quite good. 29hkd untill 1pm and they have 28 good snooker tables. Sai Ying Pun is between Sheung Wan and Kennedy Town. The Snooker Club is just above the Ramada Hotel if anyone knows it. So who is interested? Write, and then we can maybe exchange mobile phone numbers for further preperations.

    @DDD

    Snooker is a billiard game. You have 15 Red Balls each counting for 1 point and 6 coloured counting from 2-7 Points. The winner is the person with the highest score after the table is "cleared". You have to hit a red one in a pocket first, then you are allowed to hit a coloured one, and so on. You play on table which is nearly 2 times bigger than a pool table. Because of that, the game is much more difficult then pool.You are more frustrated at the beginning but when you are getting better its really fun. So try it.

    @Maverick

    That sounds good, but is it really a snooker table? I've only seen pool tables in Hong Kong Bars. Is the Kangaroo down under in Wan Chai?
