The game of pool: fun facts. Billiards evolved from a lawn game similar to croquet played sometime during the 15th century in northern europe probably in.

The term “poolroom” now means a place where billiards is played, but in the 19th century a poolroom was a betting parlor for horse racing. Billiard tables were installed so patrons could pass the time between races. The game of billiards and the poolroom became connected in the public’s mind.

Today, the two terms are used interchangeably. Pool is one of the safest sports in the world. Pro player and trick shot specialist paul gerni is nicknamed the “ambassador” and speaks six languages. Thomas jefferson’s home, conceals a billiard room. In jefferson’s day, billiards was illegal in. The term “scratch, ” as applied to a pocketing of the cue ball, was derived from the penalty assessed for such a foul.

In pool’s early days, the score was often kept on a chalkboard. When a player pocketed the cue ball, his opponent “scratched” a point off the shooter’s score.


There are 15 colored balls in billiards, 7 “solid”, 7 “striped” and the black 8-ball. According to research conducted a few years back, billiard champions have the highest average age of any sport, 35.6 years.
Tom cruise did his own trick billiard shots for the 1986 film. Except for one in which he had to jump two balls to sink another. Director martin scorsese said he wanted to let cruise learn the shot, but it would have taken two extra days of practice, which would have held up production and cost thousands of dollars. The shot was instead performed by professional billiards player mike sigel. Billiards was the first sport to have a world championship (1873). Throughout history, billiards has bridged the gap between the aristocracy and the masses. Both gentlemen and street toughs played. Queen of scots, was invaded and captured. The invaders made a note of forbidding her the use of her billiard table. They then killed her, and used the covering of the table to cover her body. The first billiard room was built in. Played there was one-pocket, which was a table with one pocket and four balls.

The first coin-operated billiard table was patented in 1903. The cost of a game on the first pay-for-play table: one penny.

Before the invention of celluloid and other new-age plastics, billiard balls were made out of ivory. The elephants can thank their present existence on the invention of plastics. Because billiard balls had to be cut from the dead center of a tusk, the average tusk yielded only 3 to 4 balls.

Captain mingaud, the inventor of the leather cue tip, was imprisoned for political reasons during the french revolution. With the help of a fellow prisoner, he was able to have a billiard table installed in his cell. It was during his incarceration that be became obsessed with the game, that he devised and perfected his invention. His obsession became so intense, that at the end of his prison term, he actually asked for a longer sentence so that he could complete his study of the game. The world’s largest billiard hall was built during billiards’ golden age.

” “the recreation, a mammoth seven-story health spa, was a bustling. It featured 103 tables, 88 bowling lanes, 20 barber chairs, three manicuring stands, 14 cigar stands, a lunch counter on each floor, a restaurant that could seat 300, and an exhibition room with theater seating, that could accommodate 250 spectators.
Charles goodyear – the inventor of vulcanized rubber, which revolutionized billiard cushions and countless other industries – died a virtual pauper. His company failed, he was imprisoned for debt, and he profited little from his breakthrough invention. Was based on a novel by walter tevis. The novel, however, was based on a short story he had earlier submitted to playboy.

Before “the hustler” was released, the “philco tv theater” aired an episode called “goodbye, johnny, ” which bore an uncanny resemblance to the playboy short story. In it, cliff robertson portrayed the cocky young hustler, making robertson – not newman – the original “fast eddie” felson. Marquetry – the art of making pictures or designs with thin slices of wood, shell or other materials – has long enhanced the beauty of tables and cues.

The art form is hardly a recent development. It has been practiced in. And the orient for more than 3,000 years. Many handicapped people have played the game of pool, but the story of “handless george” sutton is truly one of inspiration. Born in 1870, sutton lost both hands in a sawmill accident at the tender age of eight. Despite his handicap (and long before the days of advanced prosthetics), he studied medicine and graduated from the. During his college years, he took up the game of billiards. He became so proficient, he set an 18.2 balkline world record with a run of 799, in 1921. He took his playing skills on the road, touring the country and amazing audiences for nearly 35 years. He left an everlasting legacy – the resolve of the human spirit – upon his death, in 1938. Fields, despite his slapstick persona, was an accomplished pool player.

Wille hoppe was truly a legendary player. Yet, his most famous match strangely had more to do with a penknife, than his unequaled wizardry of the game. In 1925, he met robert cannefax, the three-cushion champion.

After several games, cannefax, who preferred a fast cloth, asked to move the match to a different table. Hoppe, who was leading, said the cloth was just fine, and refused to allow a change. An incensed cannefax drew a penknife and savagely cut the cloth down the center of the table. Hoppe was immediately awarded the match, and cannefax was suspended from competition for a year. Ironically, cannefax never played another match.

He toured vaudeville for several years, and then died of meningitis in 1928. Throughout most of the 1800’s, the chalk used on the new leather cue tips was carbonate of lime, better known as blackboard chalk. Most chalk used today is comprised of fine abrasives and does not contain a speck of chalk. The church has long been a part of billiard history.

From its earliest days, the game was often denounced as a sinful, dangerous, morally corrupt activity. Billiards play was forbidden, by the church, as well as the king. In early american history, actual laws were passed (thanks to religious influences), outlawing the game in many parts of the land.


Until almost 1920, american billiards was dominated by the carom games. Pool was a dead, or dying sport. When the first championship pool tournament was held in 1878, the winner, and the event itself, all but went unnoticed. The first 18.2 balkline championship was held in. It will probably be the only world championship in history ever decided by the courts.


After six days of play, three contestants were tied for the first place. When a tie-breaking playoff was suggested, maurice vignaux, the french champion and notorious whiner when things weren’t going his way, scoffed at the suggestion. He insisted the title should be awarded based on the highest overall average (which he, of course, had at the time). Vignaux refused to continue, and the matter wound up in the french courts. (which, of course, awarded vignaux, their countryman, the title, after a delay of more than two months).
No one knows exactly who, when or where the first billiard table was built. The earliest documented record of a billiard table was made in 1470. In an inventory of the possessions of king louis xi of.
His table was said to have contained the following: a bed of stone, a cloth covering, and a hole in the middle of the playing field, into which balls could be driven. He actually toured the country and amazed audiences.
What is billiard cloth made of? Amazingly, the main component of billiard cloth has remained unchanged for over 400 years. Wool was used in the 1500’s, and remains the fabric of choice today.

It has, of course, undergone some perfecting (and some wool/nylon blends are also produced). The word “cue” is derived from the french queue, meaning tail. Before the cue stick was designed, billiards was played with a mace.

The mace consisted of a curved wooden (or metal) head used to push the ball forward, attached to a narrow handle. Since the bulkiness of the mace head made shots along the rail difficult, it was often turned around and the “tail” end was used. Players eventually realized this method was far more effective, and the cue as a separate instrument grew out of the mace’s tail. There were few, if any, women’s tournaments in the early 1890s. Whatever titles there were, were local, and usually self-proclaimed. Until, of course, frances anderson came along. Native merely proclaimed herself champion of the world, and offered $5,000 to any woman who could beat her at pocket billiards. Toured the country, playing both men and women. Legend has it, she went undefeated for 25 years against her female competitors. She was paid handsomely for her appearances throughout the 1920’s, taking on challengers and giving exhibitions, in both.

She followed this up with a well-publicized announcement that shocked the pool-playing world. Her real name was orie from. , not frances – and she was actually a he.

Behind the eight-ball – a dangerous position from which it is unlikely one can escape. From a version of the game of pool. The balls are numbered and must be potted in order. The game is forfeited if a player’s cue ball hits the (black) eight-ball first. A “behind the eight-ball” position leaves a player in imminent danger of losing. In the course of play, one day a visiting military cadet remarked that first-year cadets at this particular academy were known as “snookers”. When the cadet missed a particularly east pot, a remark was made why, you’re a regular snooker! Tables originally had flat vertical walls for rails and their only function was to keep the balls from falling off. They resembled riverbanks and even used to be called banks. Players discovered that balls could bounce off the rails and began deliberately aiming at them. Thus a “bank shot” is one in which a ball is made to rebound from a cushion as part of the shot. At times, including during the civil war, billiard results received wider coverage than war news. Players were so renowned that cigarette cards were issued featuring them.The item “Pool Table Brunswick 9ft pro solid wood 1905 Loaded value 12k FREE set up & deli” is in sale since Wednesday, December 18, 2013.
