    Default A great dish

    Where does the phrase it's a great dish come from? I hear it lots now but don't remember hearing it when I watched in the 80's to early 90's

    Dish is usually a pool term, for clearing the table in one visit.

    I have heard Mark Williams say it quite a few times. 1 or 2 commentators, Ken Doherty was one I think.
    Colin Murray has said it. Also heard it in some of the dafa snooker youtube interviews but can't remember a specific person

    Default A great dish

    what I have seen is a dish in pool is from the break where the opponent does not have a single shot

    done it many times in league matches
    and had a few against me

    Clearing the table after the opponent had a shot is a clearance.

    "Great dish" never heard that phrase.

    so to me MJW means - great = good, dish = clearance
    "it would have been a good clearance from that situation"

    now of course there is "my wife makes a great dish of pasta!"
