Pool - New Zealand Style

Here you certainly will not be finding any spots and stripes. Instead you will be potting "small ones" and "big ones" respectively. Also non existent for some unknown reason is the 2 penalty shots rule which means that if I commit a foul I look and feel stupid, end of story. For this very reason therefore the art of snookering is not often practised. However in the case that some smart-ass Irishman such as myself successfully snookers his opponent on both sides, the opponent may nominate one of mine and strike it to his advantage with the white. Meanwhile when on the black, a player who fails to hit it will automatically lose the match. So as you can see while the Kiwi may be a brute on the Rugby pitch it is honest gentlemanly behaviour that prevails at the pool table.
