Competitive pool/snooker/billiards player wanted!

Post by gradebg96 » Mon, 12 Oct 2009 5:09 pm

Hello!

I just recently came to Singapore and am looking to find someone to play pool with. I have played for years and still love the game. My best game is definitely 8 ball, but I enjoy carom, 9 ball, 3 & 4 ball and snooker as well :)

Anyone interested in playing? pls reply or email gradebg96 @ gmail dot com I live around Clementi and there is a pretty big pool hall right here at the recreation center.

Thanks!
Greg

same same, as the asian saying goes, also live close to Clementi. The only slight problem is that I travel a lot for business, usually out of town during the week, two weeks per month. So I am here this week, but out next week. However, I have played quite a bit in my mis-spent youth still keep my eye in when I get a chance. On the 8 ball Pool side - which country are you from - they all have different rules :)

I'm from the U.S., but even there we have different rules for each state, county, area, etc so we could play whatever rules we agree upon. I'm not working yet so for better or worse I can play during the week or on weekends. Are you up for playing? I'm good for it pretty much anytime :)

how about thursday evening? We could go somewhere a bit more interesting and fun, I have a car so I can pick you up, you do the investigative work on where we could go play and you need to do a couple more postings to get your PM facility enabled then we can swap tel numbers.

Sounds interesting! What area would be more interesting and fun? I just know there is a place right in the Clementi recreation center that's pretty big with a lot of standard pool and snooker table and is well cheap.

Thursday would be good for me tho, and my email was in the top posting to exchange numbers. Which country are you from?

I'm interested too. Have been playing seriously for a number of years. Haven't played much in the last 6 months though. I usually play at cue room in south bridge road. Let me know what's the plan and maybe I can join you guys

Pool and beer

Post by slupen » Wed, 14 Oct 2009 3:56 pm

Hi

I used to play in the HK recreational league every sunday but now looking for new pool buddies.

Work near clementi so more then up for a pool game.

Beer as previous speaker is of course a large plus in connection with the pool.

Let me know!

They have mostly snooker in HK don't they? All I remember seeing in HK were snooker tables when I went.

Playing in Clementi at West Coast Billiard Saloon sounds like it would be ideal right now. I'll check later today to make sure they have beer at there.

Cue room is quite ok. The people are friendly and they serve food and booze. Sorry I won't be able to join this week as I'm tied up with work

Looks like West Coast Billiard Saloon doesn't have beer so tonight it will be 'cue room', I should be able to get there around 7.

The address is 73 S Bridge Rd, very close to Clarke Quay, you just walk down Hong Kong street to S Bridge Rd and it should be right there. I am going to email/pm people who said they might come with my number as well. Message me if you got any questions.
