Have you ever 7 balled anyone at pool?

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!

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.

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!)

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.

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

round here its known as a "tin hat". and yes i have inflicted it on several occasions to less skilled/more drunk players

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
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.

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.

Because I could not stop for death
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.
