I used to struggle with my breathing so I’ve since eliminated it from my game altogether. Less variables to manage. ;)

Nice post OP. I’ve used square breathing before but not as part of match...

Fair point. There should be constructive conversation around FargoRate and as a billiard community of course we can offer feedback and ask questions. Sometimes tone is easy to misunderstand online...

Look, I am a big fan of SVB and bet on him in this match, but let's not be too quick to call Dennis washed up.

This format favored Shane. Newer cloth and template racks made the importance of the...

generally

I was speaking in general terms. Chang is an exceptional player that was close to 40% and won in a race to 50.

I'm not suggesting that he wouldn't win in a longer set, simply that I'd expect his...

It's strange. In the 60s and 70s legends were told about 10 ahead sessions that lasted for days, and it was considered a badge of pride to play long sessions. Gambling was where the top players...

Thank you for doing this!

I think this is the only stat that matters. Shaw was close to SVB in the B&R category. Anyone under 40% need not apply.

To add to my thoughts above, the goal isn’t consistency, it’s to improve. Thus asking how to be more consistent is really asking how to improve. The answer is specific to each individual’s strengths...

That picture doesn’t do it justice. Most of the ads are bright white, and they flip flop with flashy animation like when someone hits a grand slam at a ball park. Not a huge fan but it doesn’t seem...

I get where this comes from. He lost out of the US Open and showed a lack of resilience or positive attitude along the way.

The part that needs to be baked in is that he got dealt an extremely...

I think Styer's combo to win the first set for USA in 2018 was legendary. Nothing that followed would have had relevance if he hadn't broke through.

His approach actually makes sense to me.

Everyone has already stated he won't make much money here if he puts it on Youtube or sells DVDs. We know that. And selling the rights directly doesn't...

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...

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...
