    Not twisting head off line

    I seem to have an issue. When I step forward with lead leg my leg (in order to be at lead shoulder width apart) also steps slightly to the side and my head follows which,to me, moves my head off original shot line. Another issue is I bring my cue/bridge hand in from the left and as I’m bringing...

    Grip thumb

    Anybody else notice Tyler Styer and fedor gorst have a particular way their thumb is positioned on grip hand? They both work with Johan. I wonder if coincidence or some sort of technical thing. If advantages to it I’d love to know what they are.

    Proof of method

    Simple way to prove ( to yourself) if aiming system works. To keep it simple let’s disregard deflection and all that jazz. Basically use a cranfield arrow or some reinforcements as a ghostball. Set it up accurately so if you aim cb at that spot the shot goes. Then basically use your system. If...

    What in the world is going on?

    Weight distribution

    Contrary to what most books say I notice a lot of top players appear to be shifting weight backwards. Is it just my perception?

    Zheng Yubu

    I know it’s a blanket statement but he has the best pattern play I’ve ever seen. Makes Chinese 8 ball look easy. He’s scary good

    What I’d like to see

    Forgive me if I posted something similar before ( can’t remember). I’d like to see a full instructional dvd devoted to what is “ impossible “ to do or at least not wise. The little things like trying to hold the cb when near impossible or trying to use English to straighten out off rail when...

    Certain places

    I'm hoping some advanced players/pros will chime in on this question. Are there certain venues/pool halls/bars that you can't seem to play well at? Maybe because of lighting/temp etc? Or does everyone feel high level players wouldn't go through this? Just curious

    Back hand movement

    Noticed a lot of pros hold the stick with one hand then kind of throw it and catch it therefore adjusting their grip. It happens before putting bridge hand on cue. Probably nothing more than a readjustment but nobody I know does it. Any advantage to this?
