This isn't a strategy question, but I was hoping that you could answer it all the same. I am wondering how much room you would recommend be between a pool table and the wall?
Don't believe your salesman!

When shopping for a new table the retailer has a spec sheet that seems to be standardized.  It's specs for the distance around the table is about 4-1/2 feet.   This is just to sell the table.  If you believe the chart, you'll be purchasing a short cue stick for certain shots.  The real safe distance to use an average length cue is minimum 5ft.  If anybody playing on your table uses a longer cue they may still run into a problem.  To be safe 5-1/2 ft. on each side is really a minimum.
