Why does she use a closed bridge when playing snooker?

Probably because she plays more pool than snooker and is more use to using a closed bridge. I know I would used a closed bridge when playing snooker, just out of habit.
I tend to think the whole,"blocking your view" with the closed bridge is overplayed anyway. If thats such a problem, why can people shoot with their eyes closed and still make shots on a regular basis?

You could go to the AZ board, ask the pros section and ask her. She is very good at responding to posts. Not trying to take anything away from this board, I love the CCB. AZ does have a nice ask the pros section though.
