Kudos sir. The layoff will end up helping your game, it's good to take a break once in a while, you'll come back and immediately notice when you're standing incorrectly or lined up poorly.

Thanks for not being a selfish person begging to get into private homes to play.

I feel your pain chuck..been over a month for me..
hang in there tho..we'll (probably) get back better than ever


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...

-- from grissim's "billiards"

Conversely, I have been playing 3-4 hours a night on my table.

I have found it is very difficult to maintain concentration (or even give a crap) about the fine points of the game; unless I am playing competitively against myself looking for winnable safeties and run out positions.

Stay safe everyone !

I am sure when they open up America people will want to get a Cue in hand, and hit some Balls. In the mean to watch some instructional DVD, you might build some new mussel memory into your game.
