Meet your new history teachers, snooker legend Ronnie O'Sullivan and sports broadcaster Matt Smith, as they cross the pond to explore America's 300 year history with the game of pool. The real-life mates travel the US to hunt down America's most notorious pool hustlers while meeting a few characters along the way.
Episode 1x4; Feb 16, 2017
Ronnie Matt hit the streets of San Francisco in a Steve McQueen-style '68 Mustang to try to hustle the locals – with some sleight of hand from Ronnie – before he plays pool against one of the game's biggest ever money-earners. Along the way, they train with local NFL team the 49ers, check out the cyber-future of pool in nearby Silicon Valley – with disastrous results – and get the shocking real story of life behind bars at notorious former prison Alcatraz, from an inspiring ex-guard.
