thanks pat
I can visualize that..
I miss a real pool table tho.

thanks all for the replies~


A billiard table is that richest of metaphors,
by turns a theatre, an altar, touchstone, gauntlet,
ritual ground, a gunfighter's high noon, a refuge,
a verdant landscape for balls to scatter and rest in meaningful synchronicity,
a classroom, a karma dance, mirror of moods, a guide and trusted friend...

Can anyone post a video example of "stun follow"? Thanks.
