    Just twice for me, in a long career of pool I have managed this holy grail. God it feels good. And the first time wasn't against a man absent skill. He just fucked the break and then I cleared up. When it was down to final balls him and his mate started cussing my mother, calling me out on personal hygiene- the works. All to break my nerve. After such ungentlemanly and unsporting behaviour I felt entirely justified in doing two victory laps round the table and saying 'seven balls bruv, you've took a hell of a beating'

    the thrill of victory!

    I've played Pool five times in total and seven-balled my opponent in every game. I gave up because it was too easy. I'll never play again. I'm the Kim-Jong Il of Pool.

    Round our end most traditional pubs have a forfeit for being 7 balled, usually involving athletic public nudity

    There's nothing more satisfying than dishing out The Wasted Pound* - challenger pays, champion breaks & clears up. Winner stays on.

    * I remember when it was 10p etc - £1 each for quiz machine, jukebox, crisps and pool? It's a national disgrace.

    Twice I think, to different people. My smug self-satisfaction was sufficient to not demand the table run forfeit.

    Does miniclip count? If so, dozens of times.

    yes... american pool more though

    once i was in a hostel that had a pool table and this big-ego twat was dominating the table - no one could beat him - after about an hour it was my go, he was still unbeaten.
    he breaks and in goes the black. "Whose next?" I asked chuffed, only for him to have a hissy fit and say that if you pot the black on the break that means you win, and he got his management mate to back him up - small town p:mad::mad::mad:k (22 years later and i still havent gotten over that!)

    No. I am shit at pool, but slightly less shit after a couple of pints, I think.

    Officially it's a re-rack I think (not that most people pay official rules of course).

    I've done it loads of times, if the balls break right off the break and with a bit of luck and a true table and an inform player, its well doable for your average team player.

    Should have been a re rack.

    My optimum level for being not-EVER-so-shit-at-pool was between pints 4 and 5 if I remember rightly. But I have never 7 balled anyone, I think I only did more than 4 balls in a row a couple of times. Not really my game, I'm more badminton

    A real jock type in a bar in Oakland. Luck was definitely on my side, I slammed the cue ball and they each went in. He said, you play hard and fast like I like it. Through gritted teeth. :D I'm normally shit.

    My friend, an average pool player, 7-balled another friend twice in Paris.

    Friend A had taken Ketamine for the first time in his life, and said that the table turned into a series of geometrical lines.

    :cool:

    i think there is an optimum amount of booze for playing pool. the graph goes something like

    no booze - shit
    modest amount of booze - less shit
    more booze - shit

    Once at uni, when slightly drunk.

    I didn't enforce the "lap round the table with your trousers round your ankles" forfeit which I was told is standard.

    This is true. Though it occurred to me that the first few games are a warm up, then you get into your stride. Then the booze takes over and you lose it.

    I can only play pool when I've drunk two pints and the top inch or two of a third.

    No. Not even playing my kids when they were little, on my cousin's table, back on the prairies.

    I know it's macho to be a pool dude. I'm not that terrible, actually [with a nod to shoring up my own nascent machismo...], but I ain't never ran seven balls.

    But I like real ale and push up bras on hot broads. Honest I do.

    Yes, many years ago in my mis-spent youth I was invited to play for Yorkshire (a bit of a come down for a born and bred Lincolshire man) and was playing for fun against someone who was a beginner. He took the break, I beat him.
