Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Understanding of the universal forces at work on a pool table, and effective manipulation of those forces are two completely different things...

Billards is more of a Geometry problem than one related to physics. Understanding the trajectories, angles, etc. is only part of being a good billardist. Being able to plan the shot sequences and then execute on what one sees on the table are basic skills of a billardist.
