Definition of Talc Billiard Hand Talc

Talc Billiard Hand Talc is a billiards term that is a part of Billiard Accessory Terminology.

Billiard hand talc is white talcum powder used on a pool player's bridge hand in order to reduce moisture and friction so that a cue's shaft can slide more easily over or between the player's fingers.

It is not provided in many establishments as many recreational players will mistakenly use far more hand talc than is necessary and transfer it all over the pool table's surface.

Venues that do provide it usually do so in the form of compress cones about 6–inches tall. Some serious pool players bring their own hand talc, in a bottle or a porous bag that can be patted on the bridge hand. Many players prefer a billiards glove.

Billiard talc is frequently mistakenly referred to as hand chalk, despite not actually being made of chalk.

You should be able to find some billiard talc at amazon.com.
