1. When and how did you find Funkypool?

Girlfriend played pool sharks at work. I had a few games against her. About 15 years ago? Complete guess as my memory is useless.

2. Do you remember your first significant Funkypool achievement?

Beating cphaynes in a clan match in my first season. I've still to witness anyone lose with less grace.

3. Which game type is your favourite and why?

8US - Potting your opponents ball is the bomb!

4. Would you consider yourself a rank, tournament, clan or anything goes type of player?

Only really interested in clans - they're all that's left!

5. Where do you stand on resetting?

Nonplussed. Only time I've done it is to see how worse I've become in my old age. Wish I hadn't! :P

6. If you could pass on 'one' single tip what would it be?

Read before you post. Making an illiterate and badly formed post totally takes away the point you're trying to make, and makes you look a complete halfwit. I'm not in a position to give any tips on gameplay!

7. Do you play pool in real life?

I was in 3 teams, but I've cut down to 2 now. World rules on a Tuesday and Old rules on a Wednesday.

8. What's your worst habit whilst playing funkypool?

Playing other games at the same time.

9. Which table baize colour do you use?

Light Green

10. Which is your preferred cursor?

Ghost ball

11. Do you have a bogey player?

Nah, anyone can beat me.

12. Can you name 3 members you respect and the reasons why?

It's tempting to mention the people that have mentioned me, but if I only named 3 I'd be leaving loads out.

13. Where do you see Funkypool in 10 years time?

Devoid of all members.....except for 2.

14. Which country on average produces the best Funkypool players?

England. If you picked the top 8 English players and played them against Ireland, Scotland or the US - it wouldn't even be a contest.

15. Lastly, if you could have one single idea implemented to Funkypool what would it be?

£1 to enter, winner takes all killer matches.

1. Friends referred me. I think I was around 17 or 18? (30 now - patchy memory)
2. still waiting...
3. Killer - gets more players at the table. (Sociable) (anything but Arcade)
4. n/a I do my own thing.
5. Previously - very set against it.
FP isn't what it was, so care less. I've been trying though.
6. Use your ignore list... FP can be more pleasant!
7. Yes
8. list is too long.
9. What's a baize colour?
10. Outline lately for visibility
11. DVZ... Great player. Memorable period I just couldn't win a frame no matter what.
12. refusing this one. People change too often and too extremely.
Ab's always been firm, but can compromise.Took stick over the years but still here.
DVZ has always been fair minded with me, despite his ridiculous ability when on form.
(most with skills turn ... I'll say uptight)
13. Depends what is done in the next 10 years. I'll be surprised if I'm still playing.
14. What does nationality have to do with personal/individual ability?
I'm gonna say South Korea?
15. Remove ALL ratings influence from games. If a 600 beats an 800... deal with it or play better.
Some games feel very fixed. Could be lag... convinced it's rating influence too though.
