(FAQ) Why do pool players love pool?

(About the Author)

There are may aspects and elements of this game that almost defy description and definition. There is such a variety of complexity, and difficulty to a seemingly simple playing field. Yet, people’s lives have become entangled in the effort to jubilantly demonstrate greater mastery of the battle field over your opponents.

The appeal of table billiards extends around the world. You can travel to anywhere and find pool tables in one form or another. The table quality may be of various levels and materials, but it will exist. In every locale in the world, you will find kindred souls that will share the same passion and enthusiasm of cue sports.

Once you develop even the slightest interest in the sport, you will find others with skills similar to yours. They will also have the same interest in banging candy-colored balls around a rectangular table, with the sole purpose of making them disappear off of the table into any one of six holes.

You can find mentors that will be happy to have someone listen to their advice. But among all the good players who really want to see you improve are the senior shooters. These old geezers and geezies have the time to help out learning players willing to listen and pay attention. By their examples, you have a peek into the far future of your life pursuits. Their participation in cue sports means that you too will enjoy the Green Game for years and decades to come.

If puzzles and problem solving is an interesting pastime, there is no better environment then figuring out how to efficiently push a bunch of balls into pockets. And, each new rack provides a brand new puzzle. The complexities are so vast that you have an endless lifetime supply of creative confusion.

If you are a very precise individual who lives for careful control and predictability in your life, the Green Game presents a constant challenge to bring order out of chaos. The challenge of learning how to control small movements can consume a lifetime.

There is the pleasure of watching and enjoying the artistry of the best professional shooters who constantly compete at locations across the planet. Every game and match they play provide examples of what is humanly possible.

Other players find the competitive challenge of the rectangular battlefield to be irresistible. The continuous opportunity to come to the table and prove you are the better or best player – all in a relatively bloodless environment.

More players love the strategic and tactical applications of the game, discovering and taking advantage of opponent’s weaknesses and suppressing strengths – all the will, making table decisions to enhance their strengths and minimize personal weaknesses. These players are also big fan of Sun Tzu and “The Art of War”.

And, at the simplest levels of the sport, there is the greatest and most joyful reason why pool is so attractive to so many people – finding and discovering new ways to intentionally and accidentally make the balls disappear – like some continuously changing set of tricks.
