"The Blomdahl Era" starts in 1986, the birth of professional 3-cushion billiards. The Swede was 2nd to the great Raymond Ceulemans in the early eighties, he's 2nd to Frederic Caudron in 2014. In the years in between, he's mostly been nr. 1.
For three decades, no one added more to the game, raised the bar so high, won more World Cup tournaments than Torbjorn Blomdahl. Hence the title of this book. But on these pages, you'll also find stories about Sayginer, Sang Lee, Sanchez, Jaspers, Zanetti, Caudron, Merckx and dozens of other greats. I hope there is a little something for everyone.
- Tournament results
- Player portraits
- Cues, tables, balls and systems
- A little instruction here and there
- And mostly, my thoughts about the game I love to play, and the players I love to watch.
