The Eurotour has started and I am not there this time. It is really strange, I have not missed a tournament for years, but with the restrictions we have in Norway it is not possible for me at the moment. The good news is that I finally got my appointment for the first vaccine shot so next time I will be there for sure!

I am off course following both events online, watching kozoom and wanting to play. St Johann is my favorite stop, the Sports Hotel Alpina with it’s beautiful view and the venue is always spotless.

I must say I am really happy that the EPBF managed to hold this event, it means we are mowing towards normality. I can’t complain, my family and I are healthy, I have my own pool table to practice, I got a new job and I am generally ok. But I must say I miss all my pool playing friends and the competition itself! As you all know it’s an addiction:)

So, I want to take this opportunity to say that from here on and out I will not miss more tournaments and sincerely thank Kamui for still supporting me. It says something when a company is willing to still support players even when they can not be at the tournaments and promote the products.

Also, remember you can follow the action on EPBF.COM and watch the livestream on KOZOOM.COM (and some free featured matches on EPBFS page on facebook)

Good luck to all the players in these two final days! And the EPBF and IBP with staff that make this possible.

Onwards and upwards!

Thanks for reading

2 out of 3 tournaments won, good start of the season:) I still can’t do a decent break because of my elbow, but I think that’s more my opponents problem than mine. I am going to rest my elbow a couple of weeks and see if it gets better. Next tournament is not before December as the Norwegian Championship 9-ball in Oslo next month is cancelled due to covid.

Hope you are all doing well and stay healthy, thanks for reading:) And thanks #KAMUIBRAND for equipping me with the best tip and chalk!

It’s been a while since I have posted, sorry about that. It’s been quiet during covid and I have not had much to write about. But now tournaments are back on here in Norway, we are back in business!

I did play a ranking tournament in 10-ball today and somehow I found my focus and played som good pool. The finals was the poorest match, but I managed to win it:) I have an inflammation in my right arm so I have been playing with painkillers and heat bandage with absolutely no control of any drawshot. Most of them finish as stun shots, but as long as it is good enough, thats ok:) Sorry to my fellow competitors, I have been playing soft breaks all day, leaving loads of trouble.

Hope you are all doing ok out there, take care and stay healthy!

Thanks for reading

Happy Birthday Norway!

Today is our national day, the day we got our own constitution, the 17th of May 1814. This is a big day in Norway, we have several parades and everyone wears their finest clothes or national costume (Bunad). The picture shows one of the parades form my city form an earlier year. This year we have had no parades with people, but we have had car parades and boat parades. The Covid-19 situation cannot stop the Norwegians from celebrating this important day:) I hope the world goes back to normal soon, but we are all ok. We have a low number of infected, a low number of deaths and we cope, together.

Today I should have been in Tampere, Finland, for the European Championships. I am sorry the event could not take place, but when things gets impossible there is nothing much we can do. I hope all of my friends in the world are doing ok. I miss you all and I miss travelling and tournaments, but the most important thing is for all to stay safe and healthy.

Crossing my fingers we will all get through this and that we meet soon!

Take care everyone:)

Strange times

April 17, 2020

So, after I came home from the Eurotour in Italy the world pretty much went upside down! After a few days I had to close the pool hall, all sports activities had to stop immediately. All tournaments cancelled and social distancing. You know the drill:)

I am missing the tournaments, but at least I have the possibility to practice. Not all you guys have that and I feel really lucky. This time out has given me the opportunity to get used to my new jumpcue and breakcue, Fury CFX-2 CarbonBreak and Carbon Jump Cue with the same design. Both cues are great, but took some getting used to:) The cues will be in my shop soon and the break cue is also available from Dynamic:)

Now all we can do is to wait for the world to go back to normal. Hopefully the European Championships Youth and Eurotour will go as planned in Petrich, Bulgaria, in July. Our Eurotour stop in St Johann, Austria, is moved to October and the the European Championships Men, Women and Wheelchair that was supposed to be in Tampere, Finland, is moved to Turkey in November and will be held together with Seniors and Ladies. We will also have the Eurotour for both Men and Women after teh EC. The EPBF sportscalendar is full of postponed and moved tournaments, take a look so you know what is going on:

I am also finding time to work on my new webshop. Hopefully I can launch that soon. I will also launch some new brands in the shop, that will be exciting:)

I leave you with one of my favorite episodes of “Your Average Pool Player”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOctfGqCJRc

Vegar Kristiansen tought me this (too) many years ago, I use this one way or the other almost every match. Remember to always check the table!

Thank you for reading and stay healthy:)
