How to avoid clammy hands while operating your men?

Post by Dr Dushra » Sat Nov 11, 2006 7:12 pm

Just wondered if any other players suffered from this problem?

Especially common in the summer months and thus far I've struggled to find an appropriate solution.

Any advice welcomed.

Interesting question friend.

I find a modest ammount of talc and having an old beer towel to hand tend to do a job.

However, during tense games the clammy palm still often gets the better of me.

I must admit though, as you know, it is often a source of some genuine anger!

You free for a game later in the week?

Got a feeling I could dust both you and Dom like a Roman vase.

Take care fella

Has anybody experimented with gloves ?

are these allowed under the rules?

I always thought a good golf glove could steady my strikers.

Always up for a game son. Unless I'm down the snooker hall.

Gosh so many Dr's in town.

Dr Dushra...you ask 'How to avoid clammy hands while operating your men'

I believe I can help you with your problem. First of all, operate on one man at a time.

I strongly suggest steering clear of talc. It may get into the wound and could cause infection.

You say you might experiment with gloves. I would suggest this to be sensible. Hygene is obviously paramount, and the gloves will give some friction. Best not to slip up in tight spots.

And I would recommend a glove for each hand. But stick to steadying 1 striker, son!

Climbing chalk and wraps work best!

Chalk is also good for intimidating your opponent/spoiling pub carpets.

Not referring to a specific table but I've seen people actually put like stick deodorant on their hands to keep them from sweating - not too sure if that is specific to your question. Peace. JJ
