I've been doing kicks on demand for twenty years or so. The cause has been known since the 1980s. Except in the UK, where they still think it's due to phlogiston or weevils.

It should take them about four hours or preferably less.

In one match I remember well, Thorsten Hohmann ran 100 (and out) in 26 minutes. At that pace he would run 626 in about 2 hours and 45...

Well, while it was in operation you could sit close enough that you might have to move your legs out of the way of a player for a shot.

They're not playing one pocket?:grin:
