Which Continent do you think

a) has the best 9Ball Pool players - it's really a toss up between the US and Asia. Efren Reyes and F Bustamante already make Asia strong. There's also some good chinese players

b) has the best overall Cue sportsman ? - this is tougher, if you had a tournament with 9 players from each Continent and 3 players from the team were chosen to play each of Snooker, 9Ball and 8Ball. Europe in this case would have a very good chance

That's a good question which deserves a response. Asia can hold its own. They have the Filipinos and Taiwan has Fong-Pang Chao and that young Yang guy. Throw in a couple of guys from Japan and you have a strong team.

However IMO the U.S. has a deeper talent pool. More players of world class caliber.

Snooker wouldn't even be a contest with the British players smoking the field. I think the Americans would win 8-ball and 9-ball by a thin margin over Asia with Europe a distant third. JMHO
