Same thing , His father owned a pool hall. He showed great talent at very young age he had to stand on crates to play some of the most renowned pool players of the day when he was a kid and he gave them a run for their money.
He holds the record for most balls run in straight pool, 526. The record still stands after like 50 years. It is thought it will never be broken.
15 times world champ and a few of those championship matches were won after he suffered a stroke.

Unlike Fisher he was totally sane . The moral is becoming the best chessplayer in the world makes you crazy but not so with pool.

I got past the first rack playing straight pool once and ran 20 some balls. So I'm one 26th as good as Willy. Bobby Fischer could probably beat me at chess blindfolded with his hands tied behind his back using his mouth to move the pieces while being tortured shoving bamboo shoots up his fingernails.

I'm going to start a band called the stupid fucking bastards but I could use some more band name suggestions.

We watched a play about some legendary match between Fischer and Kasparov, it was great.

Also nice thread, can I suggest DJ Goth Dildo.

First of all, Bobby Fish isn't the best chess player of all time. Plenty of the top 10 chess players (rating wise) would smash him. Plus Keres and Tal and Kasparov, even Magnus Carlson could be considered the best chess player of all time. I can't even get close to beating the mother fucker on his chess app.

Second of all, chess doesn't drive you insane, insane people are attracted to chess. It's a theoretical masterpiece.

I don't understand the comparison, did he end the Cold War and defeat Russia with love? I've seen some crazy YouTube trick shots, I'm sure this guy is just ultra consistent. Snooker is an interestin sport as well, was just watching some videos on YouTube.

Oh, yes we got lots and lots of trouble.
I'm thinkin' of the kids in the knickerbockers,
Shirt-tail young ones
peeking in the pool hall window after school
Ya got trouble, folks!
Right here in River City!
Trouble with a capital "T"
And that rhymes with "P" and that stands for POOL!

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do..

Pocket pool is not the same as billiards.

It's quite different in fact.

When I was a kid "ABC's Wide World of Sports" came on every Saturday and ran for a few hours a week. Most of the time it was an oddball sport, maybe Alpine Skiing, or bowling, even hunting and fishing, that they would show. But SOMETIMES you'd get to watch the Harlem Globetrotters (when they were great) and every year or two they'd match Willie Mosconi and Minnesota Fats in pool competitions. Mosconi always beat the pants off Fats, but Fats never let that stop his loose tongue and big mouth.

Fischer never played Kasparov. He's probably thinking of Spassky.

I remember the Harlem Globetrotters back then, I don't know what I like better the humor or the amazing display of skill. Then I see them like,, I don't know 10 years ago?... It was not there.

They had ski jumping on a lot, all kinds of skiing I enjoyed that. I enjoyed the pain of defeat no,"the agony of defeat "it was with the ski jumper falling off the side of the ski ramp at the beginning of each show . That was a really good show. I always looked forward to seeing at. Always something interesting from pole vaulting to weightlifting whatever.

Now the sports shows are just football baseball basketball . Why do sports have to be just those three things? Wide world of sports had it right,... Wide world of sports, aptly named, and entertaining, not men chasing balls.
