What is the average prize for a tournament in Coolock and what would be the average skill level? I played in the annual tournament in Dun Laoghaire on New Years Day and the standard was very high especially with 200 euro up for grabs!

It depends on the entry. The total prize money for the monthly tournament in Coolock is generally around 200 euro and for the last league it was 550 euro.

As for the standard of play, thatís pretty subjective unless you get all the best players in the country into one tournament. Something that hasnít happened yet. There are certainly players in coolock who can run 3 or 4 racks in 9-ball or have made century breaks in snooker.

Where in Dun Loaghaire do you play? What quantity, size and make of tables do they have?

Thanks for the reply.The prize money involved in Coolock is definetly an incentive for any 9-ball player in Ireland.What are the tables in Coolock like?Size?Pace?etc......

In regard to Dun Laoghaire,the Premier Snooker Club on the main street has two eight-foot tables yet the pace has gone somewhat as the tables are quite worn and old.

On the subject of the quality of tables,where are the best tables in Ireland to be found?

The tables in Coolock are 8ft Brunswicks. They have recently received new cloths. The tables show their age though and some of the pockets can be unpredictable.

All the clubs Iíve been to, Iíve found some fault with the tables. Having said that, there a plenty of clubs around the country I havenít been to. The Palace in Wexford St is probably the best Ďclubí Iíve seen in Dublin, even though the cloths could be improved.

A good place to see peoplesí reviews of clubs is on our ĎVenuesí page (quick plug for the sitesmiling smiley). BTW, Iíve put the Premier Snooker Club on our Venues page. If you like, feel free to add your own review.

The prizes in the ireland tour range from £300 to £500 pounds to the winner. The standard of play is great as we get top ranked players from england ireland scotland. I myself have run 7 racks without missing.

Although there are a few decent players on the tour, but there aren't as many players as there could be, simply because there is not enough prize money to get all the players interested in the idea of traveling to any tournaments and also the other turn off is that pool rooms like the `Pin Tavern` in Letterkenny does not bother it's ass to keep the pool tables in good condition for players to get a decent game, but life can be exetrmely pish for pool players and hustlers alike.

Hi Everyone

I want to appologise for any offence caused by my message yesterday especially the `Pin Tavern` as they have done a lot for the tour already.

It was not intended to be a statement against any clubs or tours
, it was actuly ment in a humurous sense as the club I play at isn't even big enough to hold any reasonablle tournament but also the guys ay the `Pin Tavern` are the nicest people you could ever meet and I have a great respect for them.

Last, but definitely not least, the pizes on our tour are actually better than most people realise.
Sam `The Road Warrior` Gibson won
750.00 euro I think it was for winning the `Donegal Open` in Aprill and I personaly would love to see all players from all parts of Ireland to play in the
`ALL IRELAND CHAMPIONSHIPS` in July
31st to see some really great action
and also I have aquired a camcorder
so it is possible for me to record a tournament match up and it could be any player, just think of it the tour was 1 year old in Aprill and we have recorded matches available for players got get an idea of what it's like to play on tv and I am looking forward to providing this oppertunity possibly as soon as 26th June in Enniskillen.

There will also be a demonstrtion on how straight pool is played as it will be selected for the all-round tournament in Letterkenny in November which the prize money will be quite good there also.

Righty then I look forward to seeing everone in Enniskillen and if anyone
knows of a good idea for picking good commentators for the video idea then bring them with you to Enniskillen and I'll be glad thear and ideas that you guyys might have as this is for the benifit of all players so that they are getting recognition for their skills in this great sport.
