The PoolGlove concept is to provide a smooth and slidy material barrier between the cue shaft and your skin. This will allow the cue to slide more smoothly as the material has a far more consistent and lower coefficient of friction than your flesh.
The cue condition, age, chalk dust, temperature, sweat, dirt, grease all compound to make the idea of sliding a cue shaft against the skin of your bridging hand an almost impossible task, if you are aiming for 100% consitency.

The index, middle finger and thumb are covered with this glove allowing your palm and two fingers to remain exposed. This is chiefly to allow air to circulate around your hand and keeps your palm cool and sweat free.
The exposed fingers also help with providing a secure bridging hand as your finger tips will grip the pool or snooker cloth better. An elasticated wrist band ensures the bridging glove remains a secure and comfortable fit.
