Last night, at my wife's league play, a fellow team memebr, a Canadian, told her that they play 8 ball differently in Canada and rack the fifteen in the center (8ball spot). I have played snooker and nine ball in Canada but never noticed anyone playing 8 ball. It would seem she is saying they are playing 8 ball, 9 to 6! Please let me know as I told my wife I thought the woman was nuts. She did say it was French Canadian thing! Aay.. I know they count their money differently....

Ummm...no. 8 in the center, standard BCA or VNEA rules, 9 ball goes from 1 to 9 and snooker uses the regulation set of balls too. However, the money is more colorful, the weather is colder and the beer is much better.

The only difference is the beer.

Thanks, It didn't sound right to me but I'll just let it slide as I think the lady was just assumeing no one else had ever been to Canada. She'a a nice lady but I guess prone to saying wierd stuff (like i can talk!) /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif.

Anyway, thanks for setting me straight.

<font color="green"> Hell it seems like if that were true it would defeat the whole premise of "8" Ball !/ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif Similar to some of the folks that post, she probably likes to sound like she knows all! but hopes her listeners don't!
