Playing games online with yahoo

hey i was just wondering, is it possible to play games online with yahoo? Games like pool and other games that i always play with when im in windows. I remembered there being an issue with java, that i did not quite understand. But i really want to figure this out. So if anybody has a link or up front info please post.
