  • Power Snooker

    There used to be a wonderful tournament of power snooker some time ago. Don’t see it from quite a few years. Do we know why it was discontinued?

    eh.... because it was rubbish.

    Clive Everton was paid to commentate and said one line at the start and realised it was rubbish and didn't say anything for the rest of the night.
    Up the TSF!

      Lol. I liked the format, especially when the power ball went in and started a 2 minutes adrenaline rush. I guess it did not entertain the public much which led to its closure.

        the sponsors didn't like it
        the **** heads in the audience liked it

        Shoot Out started at around the same time and has survived and (for what ever reason) is now a ranking event -go figure?!

              Very delicately put Dean, you'd make a wonderful diplomat.

              -
              The fast and the furious,
              The slow and labourious,
              All of us, glorious parts of the whole!

                    I think the format itself wasn't that bad. Better than current Shootout.
                    My problem with it was that table/cloth was very ugly looking. Also it was a napless cloth. You could see that players struggled with it.

                      We have a couple of tables at my club set up with power snooker cloth, don't ask me why. The cloth is quick, but not napless- still a lot slower than an American pool table. The tables are always the last to get used. I'll have to ask what the story is next time I'm in.
