It is a sport requiring the highest level of, practice, accuracy, patience, determination and positivity that can be imagined. I could say I dislike the physical play of the game too, but I don't watch it for that. I watch it to witness things other people only wish they could pull off doing anything else in the world. Facing odds only masters of their own fates can prevail against. Saying it is lame is just an empty opinion. (:
This younger snooker player is of a rare kind. Over many many years, you will always come across this type at least once, where he brings his ''Practice Table Game'' to the championship games, some say, the most dangerous player is the player, playing just for fun. Winners of any world championship are living proof that they are masters of their own fates.
