What's the best Pool/Snooker/Billiards table you've ever played on ?


I don't just mean a brand and model , i mean a specific unique table !

The best i've played on was this 20 year old Snooker table at this exclusive snooker hall in Melbourne, Australia. It was the best table in the hall and only allowed to be used on exceptional circumstances. As a visitor of a powerful member i was allowed 30 mins play. It was just so unreal it wasn't funny

8 ft Brunswick at the local Elks lodge. It is covered in Simonis 860, has pretty tight pockets, and rolls very very true. It is a pretty old table. Someone told me they got it in the 50's. It's a really great table.

Hands down, the best table I've ever played on was the Diamond tables at the DCC in Louisville. Bar boxes and 9'ers played exactly identical.

A Peter Vitale 9 footer in San Paulo, Brazil. I was told it cost $125,000. It played like a dream and no other good shooters around to appreciate it!

Oh yeah... I've played on the Peter Vitalie tables in Seven Mile Ford, VA. They play great. I was told it was the exact kind of pool table used in the movie Tombstone.

<hr /></blockquote>That would be the 10' pool tables at Smith's in Springfield, MA, the longest continuously run pool hall in the world. The tables were Brunswicks made for some World's Fair.

I would have to agree with the Gold Crown. First table I ever shot on, back in 67 when we use to have pool rooms here. They are all gone now but a friend of mine happened to buy one of the tables when the pool hall closed, so I still get to shoot on it sometimes. I have a Gandy at home that plays OK.

I think the best tables I have played on are the 5x10 Verhoevens at the Elks Lodge in Tacoma WA. Simonis 300, and when you put your hand down on that heated slate it feels sooo nice!
