Vica Kerekes playing strip pocket billiards

Vica Kerekes playing strip pocket billiards

This actually makes billiards a good spectator sport.

This is from a 2011 Czech film called "Muzi v Nadeji." I can only guess at the Czech from my knowledge of Russian. I love to study languages, but the grammar system in the West Slovak languages is daunting, and I had no need to know them, so I took a cowardly pass on attempting one. Muzhchiny v nadezhde would be the Russian equivalent, literally "men in hope," but that phrase doesn't mean much to me in English. Maybe "hopeful guys"? Something like that.

  1. You probably won't notice the first 30 or 40 times you watch, but if you look close...there are no pockets in that table.

    Any pool geeks out there know what game this is? I think snooker has pockets.

    Of course near the end, those two guys seem to be playing some pocket pool.

  2. Carom billiards tables have no pockets or opening where balls are sunk, that snooker and pool tables do have. In its simplest form, the object of carom billiards games is to score points or "counts" by bouncing one's own ball, called a cue ball, off of the other two balls on the table.

  3. Hey thanks. I've soon these tables once in a while, but never in action.
