  • My original post was too long so I broke it into two pieces.

    BTW Robert is a really nice blue collar guy. It is pretty typical in our championship matches to guys agree to a money split different than the payout schedule (winner = $1600 loser = $800). Robert told me he knew his opponent thought this was a cinch win for him and decided he would not ask him for split so they played straight up. It was a great win for Robert.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge and insight

    Pidge,
    You are one of my favorite posters! I thought I would drop you a quick note about how your advise on "feathering" impacted the outcome of our local league championship. I am an old retired guy and love to play pool and when I read your post I realized immediately I had no idea what I was trying to accomplish with practice strokes. I started using practice strokes as you described and quickly saw improvement. During a visit to Mecca (our local pool hall is named Paradise) a good local player and friend of mine told me he was struggling with his game. I watched him a bit, he had long quick warm up strokes so I talked to him about reading your post on feathering. Fast forward 3 days and he is in the championship match against the most dominate player in the area. My buddy, Robert, destroyed him. He played as well as I have ever seen him play and easily beat his opponent.

    saw your Xmas post. you should try that Russian Majic "crap" - it leaves no trace.... and it would cost you 1/2 as much, cause you're closer! Happy New Year!
    Thanks again for posting. My son lives in Thailand and took lessons a snooker pro/ coach for a while. He was home recently and spent several hours teaching me what he learned. My game improved a level. I changed from a more traditional American pool stroke and stance to a snooker style.
    Cue on chest helps me with side or English, stops me from trying to steer the cue during the stroke.
    always enjoy your post, thanks
    Kevin
