Does anyone out there know in what episode it is mentioned that Sam plays pool and happens to be good at it? The reason I ask is that alot of fics out there have her be a wicked pool player and I don't know from what episode that stems from.

She plays a trick-shot in the bar scene in Season 4's "Upgrades".
Good enough to win money so..... ;)

Of course, at the time she has superhuman motor control, so who knows if she's any good normally.

There is a certain amount of logic to it, given her understanding of mathmatics and angles. Superhuman motor control doesn't help if you don't have the fundamental skills to start with.

AT is good at it - at least now that she had to practice so long to get that shot right (did it herself, I heard).

Being good at pool can't have that much to do with maths, though, otherwise I couldn't be okay at it.

It has to do with physics and geometry.

It has a great deal to do with geometry.

Now, geometry is something different. Because, as strange as it is, the only thing maths-related I'm good at is geometry, I never had a huge problem with that.

actually, i used to play pool, and i use that term very, very, very loosely. as in we'd go to parties and there'd be a table and we'd mess around. (we were kids) and i always sucked.

but a couple of years ago, we were ina bar and i starte to look at it like i would a math problem or logically and i could see better taht hitting that ball on this sidewill make it go into that pocket, etc, etc.

pool makes sense for sam in a way that it is a lot of logic, physics and geometry involved

MacGyver was excellent at pool also.

Anyone that can build a helicopter with two paperclips, a gum wrapper and a pen cap should be able to do well at pool ;)

Different rules; bigger table. I'm a lousy pool player, but at least I can usually get the ball to travel from one side of the table to the other.

I used to play pool on a regular basis and used a theoretical approach. Result: Insane shots whenever I looked snookered which sometimes came off.
