I'm a huge fan.

I was very good at this when there was a table in my father's house, playing almost every day.

Nowadays I just play it at bars and friends houses drinking/smoking something. The alcohol is not really a performance enhancer, but whatever, I'm brazilian so I play for fun, finesse and a with smile on my face.

There was a show in local TV about it like 5 years ago, I used to watch but not anymore. There was a player called Rui Chapéu, guy was very, very good playing like a freestyle, used to do very complicated balls.

What about UK tv?

It's on a lot here. We just had the Masters which Ding won, and in December John Higgins won the UK Championship. I guess you may not have heard of them?

Ronnie O'Sullivan is my personal faviorite.

I'll play if I'm somewhere with a table (although pubs only seem to have pool tables now - thanks, USA) and I know John Higgins is a cheating Celtic prick. That's about as far as my interest goes.

Quite a lot of Aberdeen's tracksuit-wearing organ-wasters are heavily into snooker, and wander about town with their cues. It's a bit disconcerting.

Oh my... just switched onto the Snooker... This looks tasty... 15 -15. And Bingham just squeezed 20 odd points from a dirty snooker lol.

Best out of 5 it is then.
