Because sport is not just football, tennis and the NBA. This article is for anyone watching the snooker for hours in front of Eurosport. Just to remind you, the snooker is a variant of billiard with red balls that are each worth 1 point that must be returned alternately with balls of colors, worth 2 to 7 points, the black ball being the ball worth the most points. And this sport has for many years hosted a genius, a huge champion, surely the best in history in the person of Ronnie O’Sullivan. The Vestiaire du Sport makes you travel in this little-known sport and in the exceptional career of this good old Ronnie.
1975 : Ronald Antonio “Ronnie” O’Sullivan was born on December 5, 1975 in Wordsley, England. He spent his youth in North London. In fact the idea is that it rains H24, the guy can not do any outdoor sport. And by chance, there was a billiard table hanging around his house. And as, the Game Boy Color only came out a few years later, he played snooker all day long, very fast very very good.
1992 : In 1992, at just 16, Ronnie began his professional career. Early man. When you were struggling with test tubes in the laboratory, he would thread the balls like pearls, always dressed in a coffee boy’s jacket.
5 : We will not turn 36 years around the bush. Mister O’Sullivan, throughout his career still unfinished, won 5 world championship titles. 2001, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2013. Just that. The World Championship is an annual tournament which is the most prestigious of the year. It’s one-shot. All players are invited and it is the one who will be the best for a week. Not the right to the error. But 5 is also the number of UK Championships he won, considered one of the three most prestigious tournaments. No matter what the big date, Ronnie is always there, a great champion he is.
7 : Because The Vestiaire du Sport is perfectionist, we can not conclude the list of Mr. O’Sullivan without mentioning his 7 titles at the Masters, annual tournament gathering the best players in the world, like the London Masters at tennis. 7 titles including 2016 and 2017. 25 years he is pro the guy, but still competitive and motivated. But you’ll tell me, you do not have to be the sharpest guy on the planet to play pool. Even your grandfather could play for hours.
147: 147, this is the number of points of the highest break at the snooker. In fact, it is when you send all the balls of the table in one-shot, without the opponent does not enter a ball of the sleeve. In fact, it’s when you crush your cock on the forehead of your opponent. Literally. And in this area, it’s again Ronnie the boss. Breaks of 147, he stalled 13 in his career. World record. 13 sex poses on the table, a beer for Mister O. Of these 13 breaks maximum, it has the fastest 5 in history. Because what is stylish with Ronnie is that he goes fast when he plays. It does not put 5 minutes between each ball, like most players. Which gives you time to do 56 naps in one game. No, Ronnie, he has a pace to piss off the greatest marathoners. Here we put you the fastest 147 in history. We promise you, it’s not at all relooked. It’s even downright scary so it’s impressive.
2 : 2 as the two hands of the man. That’s it, hello. No, actually, the guy is ambidextrous. It is as efficient of the right hand as of the left hand. Little anecdote like that, just for the taste.
9.000.000 : it’s in pounds ( Sterling, brother, we’re not here to talk about literature ) all the money amassed by O’Sullivan in his career. Ok, Neymar he wins the quad in one year but hey it’s not bad for a guy who plays billiards. This is also a record in the discipline.
1998 : Because everything is not rosy in the career of this champion. He is not the smoothest guy on the planet. And so much the better. So much so that in 1998, after winning a tournament in Ireland, he lost his title after a positive marijuana test. Roh ok, a little grass before going to a pool, it’s not bad. You add some nice insults to other players or officials, and it makes us a great career with a good form. In any case, long life to you Ronnie. Enjoy your evening and long live the snooker.
Perhaps the biggest buzzword of the last few years and now a staple in the interior world, Scandi decor is certainly here to stay. A perfect balance of function, nature, and practicality, Scandi interiors are known for working hard, giving a room multiple uses and suiting families both large and small. Not only this, but they are known for giving spaces a new lease of life and its inhabitants a renewed outlook on how interiors can be used. Thx to Parrot Print Canvas today we can explore Scandi designs.
Create a sense of openness and light
Creating light and bright spaces are key to counteracting the dark winter months and long-drawn nights that are common to Scandinavian countries and British winters.
To enhance the sense of warmth and daylight, add canvas prints to your space that are subtle, warm in color and mirror natural daylight. By opting for canvas prints with backgrounds that match your wall color, you will further increase the feeling of openness and space. A white canvas with a soft cream, golden or neutral colored design will add depth and interest to your room, whilst keeping it airy and fresh. To keep this look Scandi, make sure to stick to one color scheme and avoid over-complicating your prints with fussy patterns or colors.
Create an urban escape
Not everyone is blessed with lots of green space and garden views. It’s important to remember that Scandi style can be applied to every home, including those with balconies or concrete patios or that are in the midst of a bustling city.
To create a Scandi look in a city-center apartment or house, it’s important to create a sense of the outdoors and replicate the tranquillity and satisfaction that comes with an open space. This can be simply achieved by hanging an oversized canvas of a serene woodland escape or countryside view above a sofa or in an eye-catching place.
Consider adding canvas prints of calming locations in areas of your home that tend to cause you more stress. For example, by the front door where you take your shoes on and off, or in the bathroom where you get ready for the day. By doing this, you will be able to give yourself a moment of calm, even when you’re facing a hectic schedule.
Embrace organic tones and textures
A huge part of Scandi interiors is its emphasis on colors, textures, and shapes that reflect the outdoors. Canvas prints are a brilliant way of incorporating natural textures and colors and can be effortlessly added to any room in your home.
Even though a close-up image of wood grain or a serene image of water will look artistic, sophisticated and Scandi, you should not feel limited to such literal representations of your surroundings.
Embracing nature’s tones and textures can include abstract interpretations of the outdoors, where color or a certain pattern may become your focus. For example, hanging a playful illustration in a sky blue color or in the tone of your favorite flower will work well in a Scandi interior, or perhaps it will be a black and white sketch of leaves instead.
Add your own personality
A common misconception about Scandi interiors is that they should be all white and minimal. In fact, Scandinavian interiors should be reflective of you and your tastes, and they should showcase your personality. For this reason, it’s important that you remember not to feel pressured to purchase a design that you think you should have, rather than one that you want. Instead, opt for the design that you genuinely enjoy.
A simple way to add character to a Scandi interior is by introducing artwork. If your walls are painted in white, neutral or subtle colors, an oversized canvas that represents you is the perfect focal point to be added to a living room or hallway.
The key to keeping a personal and colorful, or bold, a piece of artwork relevant in a Scandi space is that it should be unfussy and truly representative of you. If you already have artwork in your room, consider a smaller canvas instead, that can act as part of a gallery wall, or a large canvas print that matches the rest. By only using artwork that is reflective of you or your family’s personality, it will also blend seamlessly into your space and reflect other accessories and furnishings that you have.
The Scandi style seems to have particularly resonated with the UK audience, with a focus on embracing the outdoors, natural light and accommodating everyone, both young and old. However, as Scandi interiors are often associated with stripped back and minimal decorations, knowing how to accessorize a room can be a daunting task. One simple way of adding extra depth and interest to a room is by introducing a canvas print. Read on and find out how you can enhance your Scandi look with a canvas print.
Billiards is not a game with much boom in some other countries, especially when compared to the United States, but playing with friends or family at home or in a bar is always fun. However, has not it happened to you that sometimes you do not want to play because others know more than you and do not want to seem clumsy and lose? Well here you can find a few basic pool tricks that will make you improve :
First of all, make sure that both the table and the balls are clean. For the table, it will be necessary to use a brush, while for the balls, a wet cloth will suffice, although sometimes it is necessary to give them a little wax.
When choosing taco, look at the cap (the tip). It should not be too flat or too bulky. And when you’re going to chalk it, do not make circular movements, but horizontal, as if scraping the cap. This way you will be able to distribute the chalk evenly.
When executing the blow, keep in mind that the trajectory of the white ball will be influenced by the point of the ball in which you hit it, by the direction in which you have the cue and by the force of the blow.
To get a good body posture, position yourself so that the right foot (if you are right-handed) is aligned with the white ball and the target ball. Turn the body and foot 45 or to the right. Place the left leg forward and the right leg back to balance. Both the legs and the left arm should be fully extended. Now hit the ball with a little push of the right shoulder. The important thing is to be comfortable and allow a good balance.
There are different ways of placing the hand. To make the classic or ring bridge, place the base of the hand and the middle, ring and pinky fingers to support yourself, and with the index finger and thumb form a ring with which to control the cue. To make the bridge open or without a ring, it is the same but without forming the ring and it is more recommendable for soft and without effect rolls.
The cue must be parallel to the table to hit, moving the arm from the elbow and not from the shoulder. The tendency for beginners is to point with the cue down and hit from the shoulder, which causes the ball to jump. When hitting the ball, it is usual to stop the cue dry. But this is not correct, the cue must follow its path about 15cm. plus.
An uncomfortable situation is when the white ball stays stuck to the band of the table, preventing hit it well. In these cases, try to place the cue as horizontally as possible and hit without giving effect.
To finish, the best trick of all is to practice, practice and practice.
The best pool tricks to surprise
Playing pool can be difficult, especially if we are learning, but if what you want is to perform amazing pool tricks, what you will see here overcomes the difficult term to position itself as practically impossible to perform. I’m included in the group of those who can not play, but I hope you like it as much as I do watch this video about Steve Markle, an artist in billiard tricks :
Surely, now you are thinking: Buah! I can never do such good tricks. The question is to try it, repeat it and practice it until you reach your goals. For that reason, and so that you do not get discouraged.
start practicing and that someday you too become great artists of this game. Do you know more billiard tricks?
