pool tables have been around since the time of the British Empire. Snooker is believed to have originated in the British Raj bored developed by military officers British stationed in India. It is believed that development was a game of billiards Russian pyramid that has 15 white balls and one red as the cue ball. However, it was invented, game quickly gained popularity and reached Billiards pool game as the favored in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth countries. Before Snooker, pool was the game supreme, but a game can last for hours, so no wonder pool became the favorite game in the big tables.
A pool table is 12 feet long and 6 meters, so it's a bit of a monster and needs plenty of room to play. There are 6 pockets, four corner pockets and two pockets mean and side table and cushions are covered with a wool fabric that has a "nap." The siesta is a special battery or raised fibers of the fabric so it feels furry. The nap also has an address on a pool table from the D or a stake until the end of the black dot. The nap is soft going into the final point thick black or rough direction D or final timber. This means that the cue ball may deviate slightly especially if it is running slowly against the nap and is a danger in the game. For keep the nap of the table must be ironed after some games to restore the direction of the nap on the web. (Rarely done in the clubs, but acceded to some tournaments)
The billiard table itself is usually made of wood and has a slate playing surface covered with fabric. The framework is important to support the weight of the slate which comes in 4 or 5 pieces to the board to be transported, otherwise you would need a crane to put the slate. The board also is ¾ to 1 ½ inches thick, depending on the manufacturer. In fact, the pool table weighs approximately one tonne or 1000 kg when put together, so you have at least 8 feet to spread the load. Surprisingly okay to put on stage because the normal weight ranges between 8 feet and is equivalent to the weight of two average men leg.
The other component vital pool table are the cushions, which offer the rebound side of the table. In the early days were made from natural rubber and had to be heated before play. In fact, a table design was a system whereby you could pour hot water around the heating pads before a game. Today rubber technology has moved and is no longer necessary, thank God.
The pool table when set in a room is an impressive site, traditional made of mahogany or golden oak, is a statement like no other table games. Some tables also come with a wooden lid that can be used as a billiard and dining table but keep in mind the height of a pool table is just over a dining table at 2 feet 9 ½ inches to 2 ½ feet 10 inches (85 to 87.6 cm). To compensate, some tables have a rise and fall mechanism to adjust the height depending on whether you are playing or eating.
