Good places to play pool?

UClub Billiards B4.jpgJames emails:

I find some of the posts about great places to do various things incredibly helpful. For example: there was an article on the best places for trivia recently. I was hoping you could investigate places to play pool (billiards).

... the Helderberg neighborhood is fabulous for Trick or Treating, maybe too much so. We always see families coming from other parts of Albany by the van load - being dropped off at one end and working their way to the other.
