1. When and how did you find Funkypool?

Friend of mine showed me it about 9 years ago, signed up a year later (rip niallisgreat )

2. Do you remember your first significant Funkypool achievement?

Getting into the top 10 overall ranking, it was a pretty big deal back then!

3. Which game type is your favorite and why?

UK, because I still think it requires the most thought and concentration, though not so much these days given the relative simplicity of runouts

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

Anything goes, no longer care enough to fully apply myself to games, though I do try a bit harder in clan games I guess

5. Where do you stand on resetting?

No opinion whatsoever

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

Don't waste hours of your day on here!

7. Do you play pool in real life?

Yeah, decent player, similar to this

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

Humouring idiots

9. Which table baize colour do you use?

Blue for US games, green for UK

10. Which is your preferred cursor?

The cross with white circle, it's all I've ever known!

11. Do you have a bogey player?

No, I don't think any one player has an exceptionally better head to head record than me. There's been a few players down the years I've disliked playing, but for a variety of reasons

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

Right now...turtle, for being so humble about his brilliance...faust, for being a "normal", genuine, easy going man (a rarity on here these days) and maybe someone like horse/crazzy/ab who are still enthusiastic about the game after all these years. There's been so many others down the years I'd be here all day, some I've lost all respect for and others I still respect in spite of our history.

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

In the hands of madmiketyson apparently

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

I've rarely come across a bad Irish player and have seen many brilliant ones so yeah, Ireland!

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

Doubles...15 years later

1. Back in 07/08 when I was looking for an online pool game to play lol.

2. My first tourney win (back in the days when it was very hard to win a tourney)

3. Varies tbh, I have days when my UK is crap and my 9us is amazing etc.

4. Anything goes

5. If people wanna reset... let them get on with it lol, it's their account. What I will say is that players who regularly reset shouldn't start crying when the good players refuse to play them.

6. Don't snooker penfold.

7. Used to, not anymore.

8. Don't think I have any tbh.

9. The light blue one.

10. I didn't know you could choose haha, I just use the one the game came with.

11. Craig at 9us, that's all I can think of.

12. There are a lot of people on here that I respect for different reasons, it's impossible to put it down to 3, but off the top of my head.

turtle for always been a class act, as well as been the best on the game.

ummagumma for his enthusiastic efforts to bring this site back to it's former glory and just for been a top bloke, big shout out to you man.

and trats for telling me to get a job



13. No idea

14. Probably Ireland

15. Get rid of all the plonkers

The general consensus so far is that Ireland produces most of the top players, it's bad to smoke () during game play, preferred cursor is either default or ghost and funky will not be here in 10 years time unless java/browser issues are addressed sooner rather than later.

The other thing was a fair few people not being aware there was a choice of cursor. This could be a game changer because i would swear the outline and ghost can make a big difference when it comes to thin shots.

Please keep them coming if you get a moment Ladies and Gentlemen

Kudos for actually thinking of something new here. May as well give it a go.....

1. When and how did you find Funkypool?

Found snooker first via a dull boring search during the world champs years back. Never played over here till I was dragged into Snooker Squad, then started playing properly a few years after that.

2. Do you remember your first significant Funkypool achievement?

No idea about Funkypool. First significant achievement to me would probably be the 192 straight run (and my still highest success %). Had already done a lot more over on snooker so (without meaning to sound arrogant!) most of the things I've done over here didn't mean much at first.

3. Which game type is your favourite and why?

I wouldn't really say I have a "favourite". Pool is pool to me. Not a huge fan of killer. At a stretch I'd have to say 8 Ball because it most resembles the real life game.

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

Probably consider myself a clan player. It's where I made a name for myself with SS and Uprising and I still find it the most enjoyable part of the game. Started to try for rank a little more lately though.

5. Where do you stand on resetting?

I can understand resetting having done it myself, so don't really mind it. The majority of the stats aren't a true reflection anyway so I don't see much of a difference.

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

Play your own game and forget who you are playing. I'd wager that I win a majority of my frames from opponents making unforced errors. People tend to adopt the mindset that they need to go for every chance that they get or the other guy will clear up. There is a lot to be said about not taking on silly clearances and it's stood me in good stead over the years.

7. Do you play pool in real life?

I do - And I like to think that I am far better in real life, but my recent record doesn't show it!

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

I'd probably say that my worst habit is not focusing 100%. I tend to struggle against "weaker" players (no offence meant!) by taking liberties and being a bit disrespectful in the process. Really should ought to stop doing it....

9. Which table baize colour do you use?

Light blue for the American tables and green for the UK table. Have to have it the same colours as what I am used to in real life or I get confused......

10. Which is your preferred cursor?

I'm probably one of the only people who uses the system outline cursor. It's the only one that was available when I first started and I've never bothered to migrate to a new one.

11. Do you have a bogey player?

Only name that springs to mind is beenjammin. The only victories I've had against him have been narrow one framers and he has destroyed me a couple of times too.

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

whocares8x8 - A lot of people take a while to get good at the game, myself included. He seemed to appear out of nowhere, go straight to the top and has been there ever since.

beenjammin - His style of play is completely different to mine and I hate to love to watch it. I'm still not sure how he manages to take out the things he does but he manages it more often than not.

derik_dalton - Doesn't play as much now but was around a lot when I first started over here. Unfortunately he isn't regarded as one of the top players but my god is he hard to beat when he actually plays. Never understood how he manages to dig deep and grind so well.

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

Like many I can't see it lasting that long. Haven't had an influx of new members for a while (from what I can tell as most are new accounts). Would be surprised if it lasts two years with most of the current crop of players moving on with their lives and losing interest.

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

Ah, god to be England surely? No competition

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

Rejuvenated tables across the board. Tighter pockets, better scaling (the balls are too big at the moment!) and a completely new UK table that isn't silly.

Sorry for the length - Got a bit carried away

justsumgirl, spinnerand nick, just for their commitment to the site in many aspects over the years.

13. Where do you see Funkypool in 10 years time?
Hopefully on handheld or consoles.

14. Which country on average produces the best Funkypool players?
Probably the UK as that's where it's originated.

Playing for real cash, with the site taking 10% fee for support.
