Go on then.

1. When and how did you find Funkypool?

Inventively typed "poolgame.co.uk" in the search bar and found pool sharks way back when! Crossed over to "funkypool" after a period of stubborness (didn't like the new colours and layout haha). I'm a lifer

2. Do you remember your first significant Funkypool achievement?

Didn't make any waves early on. Won a few tournaments (again when 8UK was the only table) which were pretty difficult! First decent moment i can remember was probably reaching virt on the 9US table....but that was only 5 years ago!

3. Which game type is your favorite and why?

8UK - I hated the middle pockets at first but then came to love them! This was the only table we had when i started too so i'm staying loyal! Though i do like the quick game that 9US offers.

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

Used to be a ranker when i was on here loads but I only play here for clans these days. I emigrated to snooks when that started up and didn't play here for a long time. kev04 dragged me back to join cobra's which was my first taste of clans!

5. Where do you stand on resetting?

mrmagic is my 2nd account. I've never reset or plan to, but i don't mind it when people do! Personal goals and all that. Each to their own.

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

Cheer up! It's only a game All the clan squabbling does my nut these days. Does it really matter that much?!

7. Do you play pool in real life?

I smash the hell outta my mates but i would probably get trounced if i delved into it competitively!

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

Getting distracted by reading the forums in between shots and missing some sitters! I'm very inconsistent.

9. Which table baize colour do you use?

Turquoise all around!

10. Which is your preferred cursor?

Definitely default.

11. Do you have a bogey player?

Recently it's been bloody corsair

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

nick - whether he's about or not at the moment, it is what it is. Without him the site wouldn't be here at all and i've had the pleasure of wasting MANY an hour on here so thanks to him for that!

fastboysam - was the mod and then admin i could always ask stupid questions of when i joined the moderating team! Very impartial and just says it how it is. Top man.

turtle1560 - he's ridiculously good and never brags about it....he should! I would definitely brag

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

Hopefully still around! Even if it is only a few originals left i would be gutted to see it disappear completely! Tablets, consoles? Can't see it but who knows?!

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

Kiribati

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

There was huge interest in doubles a few years ago! It would have been ace to see what that would have looked like and how well it would have taken off!


I like it when these threads pop up! Interesting reads

1. I found pool by googling online pool games
2. I guess making virt in killer was quite an achievement or a certain clan match I played.
3. The us table and anything played on that as I cant stand 8uk or arc its that simple
4. Im easy going il play anyone that wants to play be that clan ranked or friendlys.
5. Never have and never will I don't see the appeal for it.
6. Don't worry and be happy
7. yes I am pretty good in real life id say, im still waiting to teach corsair how to play
8. Play far too often sometimes
9. Turquoise
10. Default with a smaller pointer
11. Anyone can win on their day but Beenjammin or Samuel I reckon.
12. Faust- He approached me out the blue when I first started and asked me to join uprising I've been there ever since and he has contributed a lot to bring it to glory, and he is a great northerner
Corsair- In my opinion he is the best player on this site and has a great attitude to the game ( of course there are many players like this)
Whocares8x8 - Never plays and when he does he has a blindfold on!
13. The way its going in 10 years this will no longer be here which saddens me but then maybe we can change that!
14.England I think :P
15.Advertising the game a bit more and making it playable on tablets would boost this up I think

Too many top people on here , dont feel its fair to single people ou for praise , i respect everyone and would expect the same in return

On Respect thing these days a lot more names like Cliffy, Zante, Rich, Faust, Eri, Pirate, Turtle, Imran, Jimmy, Fran, Mich, Sam (fastboy), Baff, Fuunky, Keith, Seb and many more

I'd say the guy i would respect most is Harry as we speak quite a bit

On internet emulators.

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

UK, just because there are more online at the same time.

12. Poolbiird - I have been friends with her for almost the 10 years that I have been playing. Turtle1860 - sound fella and very humble.Also sounds really corny, but I respect the guys that run the clan leagues as they are giving up their own time for nothing for all to (try) and enjoy.

13. No longer here

14. The Irish seem to be pretty dominant at the minute!

15. I would love to see doubles implemented into the game.
