Your stroke timing is a little off. You've got a little bit of a poke going on. Try this: Increase your follow through by two inches. It may sound funny because that's after the ball is struck, but...

You're opening your fingers on the way back and then grabbing the cue on the way forward. It's okay to feel your hand as your arm swings but you're prioritizing your hand instead of your arm which is...

To properly assess a combo shot, you must be able to see the space between both balls, the first ball and the cue ball and the last ball and the pocket. That's three spaces. In most cases, the only...

It's starting to sound to me like you're not even sure what you are trying to ask. You mentioned CJ getting power from his wrist. How does a player get power from his wrist without flicking it?

Very good observations. There are two distinct reasons for flicking the wrist during the stroke. One is for added power and the other is to keep the cue level during the stroke. (There are other...

Yeah, see, I think you and I are thinking different things about the meaning of the term 'good shot-maker.' I don't mean a good shot-maker for a once a week player. I mean someone who plays a lot and...

If she's really the great shot-maker like you said and not just the occasional good shot, then just give her time. She'll start to play position too.

This is a good shot to practice. You have to know as many ways as possible so you can pull the shot out of your arsenal when you need it, depending on the table layout (where the balls are) and...

Jim probably didn't really mean it that way when he said it. I've watched him play live and even refereed a few of his 14.1 matches back in the early 80's. He was a pretty quick player; and once he...

That's not my definition of a great shot-maker. A great shot-maker may make the wrong position choice but they make a position choice and they pocket the ball based on that choice. Once you begin to...

I think we should seriously rethink the whole 'great shot-maker poor position player' thing. It's almost an oxymoron. You almost can't be a great shot-maker and a poor position player. There may be a...

What good is any of that if you can't pocket the balls? Shot-making should be every player's number one priority. Once you become a confident shot-maker, the rest will follow much more easily. You...

Yup. And it wasn't until after the film came out and he saw Gleason's performance that Fatty changed his name.

I think Walderone had it wrong. It wasn't Tevis who used him as a basis for Minnesota Fats. I think it was Gleason. They were both from New York and both hung out in pool halls and probably knew each...

That's too bad that you weren't able to make the adjustments with the cue under your dominant eye. You do wear glasses, and I don't know what your visual situation is. Perhaps it's not something you...

Okay, thanks. Got it. The first thing to check is his (or your, if it's you,) approach and alignment. With an advanced player, they are pretty much on autopilot as they approach a shot. He may have...
