My opinion is this: These chalk holders (mini fanny packs) are uncool and unnecessary for many reasons. Why not just put your chalk in your trouser pockets? Or leave it on the side of the table which I've seen players do?

They are not needed IMO. I feel like some hack has probably sat down and conjured up a problem where there wasn't one and by trying to come up with a solution these items are the result of that.

Ding is a prime example of a player who is willing to lay his chalk on the side of the table for certain "stretchy" shots. He also did this a lot whilst in the premier league - as it saved time going into his pocket for the chalk.

I believe the fanny packs are an American thing IMVHPO.

Come on Alfie. <ok> :wave:

Its like wearing a cap indoors or a pair of sunglasses during a gloomy day. Totally unnecessary.

youve blocked yourself from receiving PMs. Whether this was done deliberately or by accident I'm not sure. But please look into it. Feel free to get in touch with a moderator if you feel you need more help with this matter.

He only uses this at the PTCs though, in regular tournaments he just puts his chalk on his waistcoat pocket like most players do.

As for Ding, I do miss him playing these European PTCs, at the end of the day it's his decision to only play the Chinese ones.

What's the huge deal with Selby using a chalk holder? Big deal out of nothing really pmsl Ronnie playing in socks or having a towel over his head for most of a certain match was a billion times worse.

What do you mean it isn't a big deal? If he was a diabetic who needed to bring a fanny pack everywhere with him, I'd understand. But why can't he use a shirt pocket for his chalk like everyone else? What a fruit!

The point is, does the chalk holder disturb his opponent? Answer: NO!

And if it does then he should look for another job. :wave:

Maybe Selby should use a chalk holder from now on to gain an "advantage" over his opponents rofl

And that's my point exactly. If it was gaining him an advantage, I'd be giving him a round of applause and pelt bucking roses at him. But it doesn't - meaning he looks like a fruit for no good reason.

Contemptible.
