Does anyone know of any good free online sites that has carom billiards?

I'm looking for a program that I can play on my computer. Howevever, if you do really recommend a payed program, let me know to, but I would prefer a free version :)

BTW - Carom is the older game of pool aka 'billiards' - bigger table and, no pockets, mainly 3 balls but can be played with 5.

Thanks,

reeeech

Finally! someone who knows what real billiards is, I always get laughed at because I claim billiards is played on a table with no pockets, but everyone complains saying it is played on a snooker table....

haha, yes i do know the difference :) but i'm not saying i know how to play it well, or anything at all lol.

i don't know anyone else who plays this game, and i don't feel 'up' to challenging any of the players at the tables as i need lots of practice.... so i'd rather play online :) working with angles is alot easier on a screen hehe

i love the movie The Hustler, with Paul Newman... it really sparked my interest many years ago. so i've always wanted to 'learn' this game.


I respect snooker, but like billiards, i don't know anyone who plays it.

So my game at the tables were 9 ball and Straight. :P

Personally I play UK Bar Pool rules, the 6x3 tables i think it is....but I am also moving into snooker too, as I my dad's new local only has a snooker table in it, mind you, not to brag or anything, I am quitw good when it comes to pool, I can beat everyone in my dad's pool team, and they are top of the league. 8-)
