    Pre shot question

    Jesus, I just can't help myself... When you call someone names, it is personal. So the "nothing personal" makes no sense. Also, WE COME HERE FOR ANSWERS. That is the whole point, so having a problem with someone having an answer, whether or not you agree with it, is bizarre. I am not trying to...

    Pre shot question

    My thoughts, exactly. I am not sure what targets Fran as a "head mistress" or whatever. Bringing someone's gender (or anything else that is personal and does not pertain to the argument) into question when disagreeing with someone shows a lot about the thought process and communication skills...

    It reminds me of what my dad jokingly says, “don’t get mad. You’re not that good.”

    Thanks for the insight. I think I might be fairly middle of the road. Sometimes hard on myself and demanding but I have no doubts in my ability to improve. Maybe it’s a fighter mentality. That being said, after reading your post, I’m thinking that going through bouts of being hard on myself is...

    Okay. I think you are saying; The confident guys with no game improve quickly while we in the “beat yourself up” category move slowly. I am definitely in the hard on myself category, but I am confident that I am improving and will improve more and more. I try to take the mistakes seriously and...

    Fran, can you talk more about that? Having confidence versus being hard on yourself?

    Yep. Shooting through the ball while accelerating is helping.

    Six ball run out - criticism wanted

    Good point! I know my good misses: When let my stroke out, leave the cue ball exactly where I want it, but miss or rattle the pocket. Making the ball is so much easier than cue ball control and a consistent stroke, so I celebrate the small victories as o know they are stepping stones to the...

    Alrighty. The feedback and subsequent practice is paying off. I took everything to heart and stopped playing so “tight“. I realized I was also keeping my cue pressed up against the side of my body and not let it’s letting it swing freely. Ever since I gave a little more space (it still touches...

    Here is the plan: I am going to work on everything you guys said for the next month. Drill drill drill (I can’t go to the pool hall anyway and the only one at home that wants to play is my dog) and then I will repost an attempted runout and see if I can incorporate these changes. thanks for...

    Good advice. Now that I’m concentrating on the shot I definitely decelerate. And change the angle of my cue. It’s helped just to keep looking at the cue ball. I think I’m following through but my follow-through is so short, and I believe this is just a matter of my physiology. If I hit the cue...

    Merry Christmas to me! Thank you for everyone’s time and input. I’m now working on speed drills and progressive draw shots. For some reason what Fran said about making my weakness a strength really hit home. Instead of being reticent to practice those weaknesses to make them passable, I’m aiming...

    Mostly the guys at the pool hall help me. I started two years ago and ended up on a team with a couple of guys who showed me the basics. I had a lesson with Jerry Briesath and a phone call with Scott Lee that also helped out. But honestly watching videos and listening carefully to what everyone...
