About this blog

Hello everyone, and welcome to my blag.

The goal of this blog is to document any form of cue sport or cue sport related material from my travels. I am fortunate to have a job which sees me traveling quite a bit, and as an amateur billiard/pool/snooker enthusiast I enjoy exploring anything related to cue sports and feel like I have some cool stories to share.

I may occasionally go off-topic into some geography, economy, photography, science or even awesomer things I don't even know about yet, but will try to stick to topics related to cue sports in some way.

Some things you will see on this blog as it goes forward:
  • History of cue sports
  • Geography of cue sports
  • Some techniques, tips and systems
  • Awesome stories
  • Coincidence
  • Billiard culture
  • Billiard travel gangster technology
  • Reviews of pool halls and bars
Here are a couple of cool tools that I use to keep temporal and geographical track of where I am and what I am doing:
  • You can see my planned location with this calendar (will try to figure out how to imbed this at some point - I would appreciate some tech tips as this is my first blog)!
  • You can see my exact location here or here if you are on a mobile
  • I keep a shared and open map of places to shoot. Feel free to comment and CONTRIBUTE!!! Let me know if there are problems, still figuring out the quirks of shared google maps.
  • I have a new youtube channel, still learning.
  • I share things I find interesting here. Not too much about billiards, just things I find fascinating.
  • I am active on a couple social media platforms - Facebook, Twitter
About me:

My name is Gabriel Josset. I was born in France in a totally awesome bilingual/bicultural family, spent my childhood in France, moved to the US to study when I was 18. I studied biology and chemistry at Penn State at the Behrend Campus in Erie, then moved to the Philadelphia area where I worked for 7 years. I recently took a job which sees me traveling all the time, mostly between Raleigh North Carolina, Liverpool UK, Marburg Germany, Siena Italy, Emeryville California, Basel Switzerland and eventually other sweet locations.

I love meeting new people of all sorts, so if you are in the same area as me, hit me up. Do it. Nothing is worse than showing up in a strange place to shoot and not finding a game. I can read English, French, German, Spanish and can deal with bridled Italian.

I will strive to keep this blog nice and current, targeting an average of 1.5 posts per week. I appreciate and encourage all feedback, positive, negative and other.
