Beautiful. But I bet every time I'd rack and break, I'd furrow my brow intensely wondering if they whole thing would come undone.

Under the film surface, meant to emulate the felt top of a regular pool table, is safety glass. It's 3/4 of an inch thick, and the bumpers are standard, so I suppose it's safe enough to play on. But maybe I just want someone to sink that 8 ball so hard, the entire thing shatters. Saving that, some director should use one in a bar gunfight scene.

DISCUSSION

felt is not used in tournament play anymore, regulation tables use a nylon surface. a lot more slick, but forces the player to be more exacting in their shots.

it looks like the table play is very similar to regulation.

and for all you english guys out there, it's only amateurs that use bottom english extensively, pro players use ball speed and top/side english for control.

play more than five games a year and you'll learn control is more important than power. my break isn't particularly powerful, but i can run 10 balls off the break regularly.

you want to learn how to play pool, take up straight pool or snooker, now there's a game, rounded pockets that are not forgiving at all, plus the table is something like 13.5 feet long
