Dave, I think you're correct about what Jay is saying. When an object ball is deep in the jaws it's better to be laying along one of the connected rails to avoid the points of the pocket. Most of...

When Predator shafts first came to my home room, probably around 95 or so, the owner of the pool hall wouldn't stop talking about them. More spin, lower deflection, and on and on about how stiff...

focus

Some good replies.

I like Maniac's approach to leagues. Socialize when you're not playing, focus when you are playing.

As for players that want to enjoy a beer or two, that's fine. No problem...

good question

Good question. It's a challenging balance for players that plan to play socially but still want to play high quality. I'm not here to tell anyone what's right for them. I just think it's important...

Importance of focus / The 9 ball dice game

In my view there are two types of players: Recreational and serious. One isn't better than the other, they are just different ways of enjoying this game of ours. The problems creep in when someone...

Agreed

Yes, this is very sensible. The physical game limits your ability. The mental game ties to how much of your potential you deliver in battle. Developing skills is paramount. At some point if you see...

One question I’m curious about for those who say this is overthinking things. Do you think mental game is unimportant in pool? Or do you think the best strategy to a great mental attitude is to not...

None taken

No offense taken. I understand most people just try to shoot balls in the hole. If it’s working for you and you’re satisfied with your level of play and trajectory then don’t change your approach.

Thank you for sharing.

The mental side of pool is every bit as important as the stroke, yet because it isn't visible and you can't see how other players think it's importance is perpetually...

If you're playing good there shouldn't be any adjustments just because your opponent starts playing better.

Yo-yo

Funny! I’ve been doing this for years. Came up with it on my own because it’s such a critical shot. Sometimes you come one rail, sometimes two. Softer speed can be tricky to maintain your slide and...

sidespin

For me personally, I just put spin on the ball and try to shoot it in.

I don't deliberately use back hand english. I just look at the contact point, then pick a tip placement and aim line that...

Pocketing 2-3 balls on the break, sticking the cue ball, and playing the one in front of the top corner pocket with shape that is as good as ball in hand seems to be the preferred approach.
