    Why do some people suck at pool?

    That's probably why Ronnie is superstar. He does not have these problems and his precision skills are exceptional. :) I used to have this problem myself, hopefully not anymore. It was very frustrating. I had to adjust every day and sometimes my center shifted during one night couple times...

    Why do some people suck at pool?

    Some people are more natural than others and those who are not, they require more training. Personally for me the biggest challenge is to perform a repetitive exact motion over and over again. As a result, sometimes I can finish a relatively complex 9 or 10-balls rack, pocket several moving...

    CTE/Pro One Practice Table Set Up 2

    It is understandable. The perspective on the picture is different from how human eyes see. The diagrams are close enough to start working at table though. I think the only way is to actually try it and calibrate the way so you do not feel pivot/sweep adjustments. Here is what I mean. Let's say...

    CB center used for CTE v4 (Shuffett Pro One)?

    The center as in the ball core center how you see it. You can hit points on the vertical axis to do follow, stun or draw. I know 3 methods (I came up with 2 and 3 myself, will appreciate any comments/suggestions): 1. Imagine the vertical axis separating the ball equally. 2. Find the closest...

    John, you did a very good job with explanation how your aim using CTE Pro One, very clear! I like it.

    CTE/Pro One Practice Table Set Up 2

    Yes, I read it some times ago. I tried to aim like that and went to some inconsistencies. I have my right eye dominat but at near sight my left eye sees better and frequently takes a function of the dominant eye. When I used 2 different eyes rather than one (or strongest visual center), it was...

    Understood. Thanks. I like marking the table too, adds more consistency in training.

    CTE/Pro One Practice Table Set Up 2

    Interesting. Do you mean you use 2 different eyes for 2 lines or you just wanted to demonstrate that the picture changes when you move the eyes? Why I am asking. I am trying to use the same strongest vision (vision center) from position up and when down and I am able to “see” 2 lines at the...

    Pool Is One Of The Hardest Games

    I really enjoy your posts. Each time when I read them I find a new understanding of what was said. Thanks a lot!

    Very well said. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    Pool Is One Of The Hardest Games

    Completely agree. I think the most difficult and influential part in pool is psychological one, after that it goes mechanical and sensory one and the eyesight is at the last place. I am leaving logical part aside. CJ, what do you think is the most difficult part in pool? How would you rate...

    CTE/Pro One Practice Table Set Up 2

    Actually I like the left picture better, even if it is not exact. The right one looks to me too much off. I mean imagine if you are actually see the picture from the side, not top. What do you think? What I see when I use CTE Pro One is some pattern and if it is the same shot category it looks...

    CTE/Pro One Practice Table Set Up 2

    One more note, it is very important for balls to be exactly the same. Some ball sets have a larger and heavier cue ball. Personally for me these balls force me to adjust a lot and make banking with CTE Pro One almost impossible to perform.

    CTE/Pro One Practice Table Set Up 2

    Your picture is good enough to understand how it works. At the same time t's difficult to tell exactly how these lines look. Even if someone drew a diagram it would not be exact because the shooter is not behind either of the lines. The shot speed plays a big role too. It is much easier to...

    Stick speed.

    Einstein had straight A in school if I remember correctly. The myth appeared due changes in the grades system while he was studying. The true is he was an advanced student.

    Fastest Break Speed Ever Recorded?

    What I do I point the cue a little bit down, hit below the equator and my cue tip lands on a table after the break shot. Maybe I create too much speed then.

    Stick speed.

    Cue weight does not matter. If the cue ball has the same speed (and I assume spin too), it has the same kinetic energy regardless of the cue weight because once the CB moves, it gets detached from the cue and has the same mass when it hits the balls regardless of the cue weight. It's not a...

    Fastest Break Speed Ever Recorded?

    Colin, It is interesting you mentioned draw. When I try to hit "too hard" with draw during a break, occasionally the CB jumps off the table before reaching the OB. Is there any good technique to avoid it?

    With all due respect CJ Wiley

    I watched all four (PPV) videos the first time last June or July and since then I constantly have been having new insights about the materials. First, I think I understand what it is , then I try using it and after a while I realize what I did was wrong and there is a better way to do it. At...
