Hi, just wondering if any1 can help me. Here is the situation. I am going to play snooker with 3 friends (making 4 altogether) and we are going to use 2 tables so we can play singles games on each table. However, we all want to play each other and want there to be a final. How can we work this draw out and also by saving money by stopping the other table as soon as it is possible to? cheers

There's four of you, each playing the other players once each, so that's 6 games. Plus the final gives a total of 7 games. Schedule 3 group games for each table, which ever table finishes its round of group games first, cancel it, keep the other table for the final, for the top 2 players in the group standings.

how much can it cost to have 6 games (you ask about saving money) and how long will it take for the 6 games. Just use one table if you want to enjoy it more. The 6 games won't last more than an hour unless you are very very bad players.
If the idea is to finish it in 20 min than use two tables but it cuts on the fun you can have with 2 guys watching and passing comments. But it should probably be best of 3 between players or two matches alternating between teams and if there is a tie then have another match or round to make it best of 3. The idea is to enjoy and kill couple of hours unless too much money is involved

Cheers, this is the best idea and pretty simple to work out too! Thanks a lot
