Robin dreyer...another great weekend of improving - 12-01-2017, 05:37 AM

i posted this in the main forum but thought it should be here
just spent 3 days (again ) with robin dreyer in beaverton oregon..
A TREMENDOUS POOL INSTRUCTOR
his understanding of all aspects of the game is superb
and his ability to communicate is excellent
he is able to hone in on what will help you improve
from fundamentals to the highest levels of strategy in 8/9/10 ball or straight pool
he was able to answer any and all of my questions
having been an elite player he is able to demonstrate whatever he is teaching you
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
to help you get to the next level

Just to be fair Larry, you should thank Lance Cowles too. He's the one who got you setting up correctly on the shot (which was still a problem, even after your first session with Robin), so that your stroke would be more accurate and efficient. This was due to you not being able to make many of the one pocket shots that you came there to learn. Your experience with Lance, over several days, enabled you to take more advantage of another 3-day session with Robin. Credit where credit's due, imo.

Robin Dreyer is one of the best instructors around. I vote that he be the new USA Mosconi Cub Team coach. Those guys would be in tune for next year. Wow, if those guys took lessons every week or month or so, like 99% of the pro golfers, maybe we could catch the Europeans. Robin would be the best coach.

thats not how i remeber my time with lance
we (lance and myself ) spent very little time on mechanics
i went for onepocket and thats what we worked on
we spent VERY LITTLE TIME and mainly on the last day on mechanics
yes he tried to tweaked a thing or 2 but in no way "prepared me " for robin
i have praised lance for his onepocket
http://forums.azbilliards.com/showpo...55&postcount=4
AGAIN
my work with lance DID NOT prepare me for my time with robin
robin deserves the credit i have given him
its sad you had to post what you did in this thread to force me to set the record straight

Robin Dreyer has two tables inside his home. One Diamond 7' and a nice 9' table. He doesn't have to meet you in some pool hall. He has every piece of pool table training equipment and tons of things he has invented for the instruction. He has taught pool full time for over 30 years. I wish everyone could see the 70 transitions he has made for the Projection Pro Billiards display. Soon, he will be on AZB telling everyone about what he has accomplished for the projector. This is about to get started.
You'll never know how great he is until you book your lesson.

Your guy sounds like a genuine hitter.
There used to be an instructor in a little town above Atlanta (I think he's dead now) called himself "Fast Larry" and he took a lot of money away from gullible people. He had a lot of questionable 'credentials'.
He was really just an eccentric kook, however he did make some impressive trick shots in his demonstrations at local poolrooms.
Nevertheless, when in actual competition, he wasn't much of a player and got beat most of the time by shooters on my own level...and that's not so hot. That doesn't inspire much confidence.
I guess that's a reason I'm skeptical about instructors in general.
Quien sabe...life goes on.

I can guarantee you would be happy with Robin. We've ended all the doubt about it, so all you have to do is call him up and schedule your appointment. If you show your "aiming routine from the aiming section", Robin will quickly demonstrate why it doesn't work. OMG, knowing that would save months of useless practice! But, there are hundreds of other items in the pool game to work on.

If your man really and truly believes that "aiming systems don't work"...then he's a fool.
He's telling you that to keep you as a customer because that's what you want to hear.
Actually he has an aiming system of his own.............but he ain't telling you about it, no way.
As I've said.....life goes on.
Stay happy.

i am not as zealous a disciple as denwhit regarding robin and i have not spent as much time with him as denwhit
my impression from my time with robin was
that robin does not beleive aiming systems dont work
andwould not change your aiming system regardles if it was cte /samba/90-90 etc if it was reliable and successful for you
he doesnt teach it though to someone who is trying to learn how to aim
i spoke to robin before i posted this and he agrees with the above statement
regarding your statement about the guy who could "show off" but not play when the pressure was on reflecting your mistrust of instructors
i dont think vince lombardi was a great football player
what i am trying to say is the coach doent have to play just be able to teach
robin can do BOTH play AND teach...
stay happy..

What's sad is that you don't even realize what you learned from Lance (and several others). You can remember things however you like, but I spoke with Lance personally every day you were there. So I know what was said, and how things progressed over the 5 days you were there.

Nothing against Robin...I believe him to be an excellent instructor.
