Pool and Billiard Game. Heavy Duty Research, Reveals the True Facts.

Should we head for the pool hall and shoot A game of 9 ball, or would 3 cushion billiards be better?

I did some research late Saturday night or should I say, early Sunday morning? …3:45 AM…

This page is here to provide you with some information and insight, on various pool and billiards activities.

I looked through the pages of Google search and the fist three were all advertising to play online for free. I did not find any good content until the middle of page 4 on the Google search pages.

Remember I am looking for information on the variety of pool & billiards games out there. I am not really looking for on line activity. The bulk of the search results however, were on line.

Have you ever played pool on line? I have not until a few minutes ago. I will be playing some in the near future and I’ll provide a report on the differences found.

On the site where I played, you could aim your cue by pressing the left mouse button and holding it. When your aim is right, you let off the left button and press the right click button. You then pull the cue back and let it fly.

It is probably safe to say that there are thousands upon thousands of sites where you can play pool on line. I even found a site where you could play in money tournaments, or play heads up for cash.
