I love😍 this shot! Upon first look, you probably won't detect that contact with 3 cushions was made. Ah, but put it on slowmo 3X and you'll see it clearly. Isn't it cool😎?!! Sorry, I get excited about these things lol. Special thanks to my pool buddy for capturing the shot πŸ€—.

Decisions... decisions... Initially, I thought of a 4-6 combo, but halfway getting into position, I realized, "nah, not gonna happen πŸ™… lol." So next option, cut forcing the 4 into side pocket. Plus 3 rails shape for a 5-7 combo... lucky, lucky, luckyπŸ™ŒπŸ˜πŸŽ±πŸ˜

I was feeling nolstagic. So I went into the kitchen and was looking to whip up something quick and healthy yet satisying and reminds me of home. 45 minutes later... Viola! All my childhood favorite food I first learned to make starting at the age of 5. Ahh... memories... πŸ‘§πŸ˜‹πŸ›

Starting to catch the 3C bugπŸ•·οΈ.. .lately I've been starting off with 3C to warm up and it's making me much more focused when I switch to pool. Maybe because after 3C, I'm dying to pocket some balls πŸ˜‚πŸŽ±πŸ˜

Here's a short vid showcasing the beauty of carom billiard also known as 3-cushion. The objective is to make minimum 3 cushions (rails) before contact with last object ball. In this shot 6 cushions were used. Looks simple, eh? Try it! 😊 .

*Thanks to my buddy here who was kind enough to record the shot.

Changing strokes... a three cushion kinda night. I love pocket pool but something about carom billiard puts you in a totally different state of mind. Here it's all about the rails, or as they prefer to call it, cushions. Every shot must be meticulously executed. One slight miscalculation and you can miss the shot entirely. .

A tribute to Gordon Ramsey -- Pan Seared Sea Bass with Cauliflower Puree and Roasted Beets. Oh! And I threw in some scallops pan seared in butter for added proteins (cause, you know, I'm hungry! πŸ˜„πŸ˜‹)

Excuse the hot pink felt lol. Had to adjust due to the glare. Kinda like it actually lol.
Here my opponent just played a two-way shot. He went for a bank 7-9 combo. He missed it by a hair but managed to block my shot. I contemplated on different options.. and somehow (just for kicks lol) I decided on the last option. Although I think a 1 rail kick would have sufficed πŸ˜‚πŸŽ±πŸ˜πŸ™Œ

Japanese sushi is truly an art form. The integrity and simplicity of each ingredient is perserved to the highest degree possible. Cooking is not required. Just simple, pure fresh ingredients you can taste. πŸ£πŸ˜‹πŸ˜Š

I don't often play much 8 ball, I prefer 9 ball better. But my opponent won a coin toss so 8 ball it is lolπŸ˜©πŸ™ˆ. 8 ball is a much different game then 9 ball, so my approach and method is different. Since I'm up against a highly skilled 8 ball player, I'll be lucky if I get more than one chance. So I must focus extra hard.
Here in this vid, I'm solids. Luckily there are no big obstacles, no clusters to break. Pretty much open layout. My intention was to cleanly pocket each object ball with no disturbance to any balls on table - mine or my opponent's. After each shot I'm constantly looking over at the 1 ball sitting on right corner pocket which I have marked as my key ball. It's the ball I will play last to gain position for the 8 ball. Luckily for me I made it through... unscathed. Whew πŸ˜₯πŸ˜…πŸŽ±πŸ€— .

Sometimes we get lost in the hustle and bustle of the daily grind that we forget to stop and simply enjoy the moment. I am not complacent, but I am content. When your heart is in the right places you will find less reasons to seek and more reasons to enjoy.

PART 1
He made some nice run, gave him a compliment. Saw he was getting too smug so I told him not to get too cocky. And... what's the next thing he does? Hahaha! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
