Reflections of a Master-Student

His latest book The Final Freedom - Reflections of a Master-Student is more than just a tribute to his elder Chinese mentor Tobias Kim. It tells his personal “Karate Kid” story that he experienced in the world of pool. The story starts by reflecting on pieces of wisdom from Mr. Kim that he used to challenge his apprentice during his formative years. They can well be used as a general guide to life, even if you are no pool player. The story reflects on winning and losing, how to overcome difficulties, how to keep smiling when you don’t feel to, how to find your own game and many more topics in 26 chapters!

The Commentator

Master of ceremony, speeches and commentary are part of Ralph’s portfolio as well. He has profound experience live commenting TV table matches in high-class tournaments all over the world. Having him as speaker (German & English) you won’t miss a touch of humor. He spoke at the 100-year anniversary of the German national billiards association (“DBU”), and also introduced Oliver Ortmann to the Pool Billiards Hall of Fame in straight pool.
