How much it costs a game in a poolhall per hour? Here in Athens it costs 6.00-8.00 euros (7.50 - 9.00$) per hour.

In my poolhall here in Lisbon (Portugal), the hourly fee is 7€, which is about the average you can expect to pay around here. You can get afternoon rates in some places as low as 4.50€, and depending on where you are playing, the price can go up to 10-12€. The most I've payed here for a table was 15€ per hour for a 12 foot snooker table in Algarve.

Cush -- u forgot venue No 6 -- me team-mate's (Lawrie'z) home table (in hiz garage) -- in fact nowadayz i spend most of my time here -- u will see why.
Lawrie duznt charge me anything -- in fact, it's like this -- he bringz me a coffee -- later he bringz me a cold beer -- later Mrz Lawrie makes dinner, with a bottle of red.
Me, for my part, i give Lawrie advice -- for instance -- last week he said that he had put 3 new (elks??) on hiz cue during that week, but that he woz still having trouble missed-cueing. I agreed to vizit, and gave him the following advice.
I advized that often missed-cueing woz due to the fact that the tip woznt symmetrical -- one bit (your favorit bit) woz depressed, but the rest woznt -- here, if u simply do the silly pool-action of screwing the cue into the block of chalk, u get a thick cake of chalk on the bit of tip that u dont uze, but stuff-all chalk on the bit that u like to uze -- hence, missed-cue. But i looked at hiz tip, and it woz symmetrical -- hmmmmmmmmmm.
Then, i had a closer look -- ahaaaa -- a dark smudge on the side of hiz chalk. I explained that he woz doing the silly-looking-pool-thing, ie, drilling for oil, and that the chalk-block woz in fact touching hiz brass ferrule -- this woz leaving brass on hiz block -- then, this brass woz getting onto hiz tip -- hence, automatic missed-cue.
I took hiz block outside, and scrubbed it on a brick to get rid of the deep silly-looking-pool-hole -- problem solved -- gee, i love this job. madMac.
