Let's have fun by playing pool on table 4 and 5 in room 1. We will preferably play doubles, taking turns, depending on the number of attendees.

The tables are downstairs. Arrive 10 minutes before 7:00 pm.

The price of a pool table will be HUF Protected content hour, to be divided evenly among the attendants + everyone to pay for their own consumption.
Snooker players will have to pay HUF Protected content table per hour.

Pool will be played according to our special, SIMPLIFIED rules as below, while snooker will be played as seen on TV (Eurosport):

They apply to every player, and this is how we have been playing here for more than 7 years.

Some basics that are special for the 8-ball game.

When the white ball has gone down, it is always placed back on the cue point.
In such situations, the player has to stand behind the table and direct the white ball forwards.
The 8-ball at the end has to be sent to the pocket opposite to the one the last coloured ball landed in.

Players should not go for the same pocket with the 8-ball. The opposite pocket will be the one the 8-ball must be landed by the second player.

If we make even the smallest mistakes (for example, touching a ball unintentionally) we announce it and the other player will play.

Instead of free balls, 2 shots are granted to the other player when at least 1 ball has been landed and that player still has at least 1 coloured ball on the table.

Usually, we stay in the pub for an afterparty.
