Fitness Sport

So, lets talk about things other than pool.
If you want to be successful in pool, you should partcipate in other sports. This will help to improve your patience and help your game.
I took up jogging, but had to quit due to an injury to my knee.
Then I started swimming once a week, and added yoga classes and cross training to my routine.
Also I changed my eating habits.
I think it’s important to know your body and to take care of it.
It’ll make your life easier and and make you feel better.

Kärten Grand Prix 2009

Last weekend I was playing and shooting pics @ the Kärten Grand Prix in Wolfsberg (Chicago Billiards) and in Klagenfurt (Meran).
I like to go to Kärtnen, because all the people are very friendly and polity there. Also we had a lot of fun.

 

Sadly I lost two matches 4:5 (@ both matches I missed the 9 @ the hill), then I won one match 5:2.
My last opponent was Mario He (2. place Eurotour). I won the first game and he the 2nd. After the break no ball was down and I played push out. Mario missed the Ball and I won this game (2:1). Then I got some chances but missed too much balls….. So I lost again 5:2. It was still a great Tournament.
Jürgen Jensey won (3rd Grand Prix this year) again. Alexander Markut was second, Charly Hanscho and Werner Scheu (from our club) was 3rd. Congratulation to all players!

 

I took some pics:
