Thank would very much depend on the condition, size and the location of your pool table. 1. Condition Well if it's missing more than a leg and every ball you've got is rolling down in a particular direction, it will typically raise several question that begins with "why... is this broken?" 2. Size Assuming you've gotten yourself a pool table that does not cost anything close to a standard pool table we'd find in pubs, virutally endless number of questions can arise out of it, beginning with "wtf is this is a pool table" to "how am I going to hit a ball at this size". 3. Location Rather than looking at a pool table's size and condition, most people would have question about its location more than anything else. Anything from "but isn't this is swimming pool...?" to "How to..... play.... can't breathe.... no oxygen..?" So all in all, since even an ordinary pool table in perfect condition, size and location can have a question: "why isn't anyone playing on it...?", I'd say the answer to your question is: from 1 to infinity.

John Quincy Adams had the first billiards table placed in the White House. Congress would not pay for it, so he paid for it himself. I do not know whether Adams' table had pockets. Pool and billiards are often used interchangeably, but some use billiards only to mean a pocketless game. The current pool table in the White House has pockets and was installed by George W. Bush.
