Surprised, no. It was pretty poor compared to Billiard Digest.

I know I am a youngster in my early 30's. But I would not read a physical magazine if someone else paid for it. Online or nothing. That said I probably would not read a magazine to begin with. I have never really been able to get into them. I am glad it is going digital.

I haven't been much into the game/hobby over the past year. Too many other things have occupied my mind.

I still like magazines. Be it about pool or something else because I can pick it up and read it. Go to the bookstore and read it. Online magazine means paywalls. You cannot read.

Plus it’s easier in the eyes. I’m a pool player and I don’t want bad vision. Vision goes bad especially when we’re staring at a screen omitting rays. Monitors and TVs can destroy our lens and cornea during long exposures.

I’m not old, yet, but I’ve seen many good players in the past lose their games due to bad eyesight.

There's an entire generation of great old guys that due to various circumstances, cannot or do not use the internet (and certainly not phones) for such things. I feel for them, often time such things are their albeit small but greatest pleasure.

With the wealth of experts who post online, there is little reason for print publications of any kind.

The notice from Pool&Billiard says "Print Copies Suspended Due to COVID-19." Also "Print subscribers will have their subscriptions extended for all monthly print issues that are missed."

So it is not presented as a permanent elimination of print issues. But the magazine has shrunk -- just 32 pages in most of the issues over the past year. We'll have to wait and see whether they return to print issues at some point.

I think there are two letters from P&B. The one I got late last week says no more paper copy, online only.

Yes, there are indeed two letters from P&B. I have them right in front of me. The latest one I have was postmarked 13 May and it says no more paper copy, online only.
