I was wondering whether videos of the greats, Joe Davis, Horace/Walter Lindrum, were available, or could someone do me a copy. I'm not looking for teaching tapes, more tournament/live action tapes of billiards and/or snooker.

I have purchased the slate, pockets, rubber and all the accessories to build my own 10 x 5 snooker table. I have a set of plans for a pool table and was going to adapt them but would like a better set more appropriate for a snooker table.

Can anyone help me find a set of plans for a snooker table.   Thank you.

I'm taking my nine year old son for his first try on a snooker table and was wondering what type of game he could play. I'm looking for something that will get him lots of attempts at both hitting the balls and potting them.

All the reds, yellow and green balls have been potted. The next player following a foul stroke by his opponent is partly snookered on the brown and claims a free ball nominating the blue ball as his object ball. He hits the blue ball which then knocks the brown ball into the pocket. Is this a foul stroke?

We have a small club of only 40 members all of varying ability and would like to run a standard snooker competition for everyone on an ongoing basis. We have heard a ladder competition is a good idea - do you have any info that we can use on setting this up?

I'm trying to find out if the final of any world snooker championship was played at the Union Club in Selly Park in Birmingham. I believe it was the 1972 final, but can anyone give me a source to confirm this please.

Is their a way of lining up a shot along the rail; object ball about an inch off the cushion and about 2 feet away from the pocket with about 30 degree angle?

I average from 30 to 50 breaks but I just can't find that angle. I can improve my game much more if I can achieve this. Thanks.

Each time when I see a chance to pot I bend down to aim, and its fairly simple for me with straight and small angled shots. However, when I take shots that require more cut, I begin to feel that I am guessing as to where I should aim. I can approximately map out the point of aim area and strike the ball there, but in the end its still approximation, so it doesn't go in all the time. What I would like to know is how I can improve on this and what to look for when I play.

I remember a match not too long back where an investigation found that the match had been rigged as part of a betting scam. I think it was between Jimmy White and Peter Francisco and although Jimmy was cleared of any wrongdoing, Peter Francisco was punished in some way. Can you please tell me if I have this correct and furthermore which tournament this was, which year and what happened to Francisco?
