    Hey, Matt,

    Welcome to the forum. There are some good articles in Pool School that will help you get opened up. Put your pool information in your Sig when you get a chance so we'll have some background.

    After Pool School, start asking questions. You'll find hundreds of folks on here just like you who will help.
