Russian Billiards (Pyramid)

I used to spend quite a bit of time playing 3 cushion billiards, some snooker, and lots of pool (favorite game is one pocket).
Flipping though the sat channels, I am watching 2 pretty hot looking Russian girls play Pyamid on a 6x12 table with balls larger than pool balls (about the same as billiard balls) and very tight pockets, only 5mm larger than the balls.
Very tough game, more difficult than snooker. I haven't seen a proper Pyramid match since Iran.

My apologies to those who think billiard is as interesting to watch as a sand clock.
Cheers

No, its the corner pocket of a Pyramid table, or were you looking for the sand clock?

Well, now that you've mentioned clocks, it's time (npi) for a picture of the Zeitgeist's gorgeous clock as well as your elusive clock docking watch.

Are you speaking metaphorically, again?
