9-ball World Championships

It's been a while since anyone has lifted the coveted World 9-ball Trophy. It had a sabbatical for a couple years and now it's Qatar's responsibility to revive the tournament. Let's see if we can bring back the old glory that Matchroom Sports had done for the event. Those shoes are tough to fill.

In the meantime, I am back in Finland now balancing between seeing old friends, practicing and working out. Somewhere in between I need to go to the countryside to relax. Thats what the midsummer in Finland is all about. Some sauna, some swimming, good food and good friends. The nature is at its peak beauty in midsummer, so green and vibrant. I love the aroma of a finnish forest. It's my sanctuary. I can't think of any other place that would have such an effect over me. I can just completely zone out.

what is your sanctuary? Try to think of one. Then, in times of trouble or perhaps a tight match, you can just visualize this place. Imagine yourself there, breathing the air, seeing and feeling it. I'm confident that this will have a positive effect over yourself.

Time to go now...

Happy Summer!
