    Is there such a thing as natural talent? Some say yes, I do not think there is?

    Can work the other way around also: People who don't believe in talent stay motivated longer since they know, practice will get them to their goals. And putting in the practice makes them shine over other players of the same age so they are considered talents and get better coaching. People...

    Is there such a thing as natural talent? Some say yes, I do not think there is?

    Well, i kinda do. Exactly my point. With the right practice and starting with the right (young) age the differences in ability will be very close. And there will be no natural talents, who get on this level of skill with significally less practice. And there won't be any untalented guys, that...

    Is there such a thing as natural talent? Some say yes, I do not think there is?

    Getting the father willing to put in the time to get you to Nr. One is definitely God given :) If this is definition of talent in this forum (getting the right coach at a young age, best a parent) then I agree that Tiger Woods, Mozart, Williams Sisters got talent. But they won the talent...

    Is there such a thing as natural talent? Some say yes, I do not think there is?

    This is just a theory. For a scientific approach you would have to find people, that put in 10.000 hours of deliberate practice and didn't become world class in pool. Anders Ericsson spent his life searching for "god given" talent and couldn't find any. In his famous study he interviewed world...

    Is there such a thing as natural talent? Some say yes, I do not think there is?

    It's proven by science, thst talent doesn't exist and it doesn't make any sense from evolutionary point of view. Our talent as a species is to become great in whatever field we choose. So it's funny, how many here will advocate the talent myth. Best forward studies are the girls from Laszlo...

    How important to your success at the table is your pace of play?

    I think there is an optimal pace/rhythm for every player. It pays to experiment, what your optimal pace is. If you deviate from your optimal pace, your game worsens. (Best approach is probably to find optimal speed for different shots of different difficulties. If it's a hanger, treat it like...

    Perfect rack is bad for straight pool

    It's only dead with introduction of the perma rack. Introducing perma rack changes the game. It makes balls possible, which were not possible before. It's open to discussion, but in my opinion it's against the idea / spirit of straight pool to call or to be able to call balls out of the rack...

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    I didn't. I said 60$ is fine, please send me mp4. (I was assuming, that ordering the usb i would get an usb data stick with a HD video file in some popular format. I couldn't understand, why it is then a problem, to just send me the file. In a private conversation worldpro explained, that my...

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    So this is your definition of trashing. Like some Amazon seller asking moderator to delete the negative reviews, because they are bad for business. You integrity standarts are that of a crook (if the product doesn't speak for itself and sells because of it's quality then truth is hurting the...

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    No, you don't get it. I said, product is probably fine. 100$ is too expensive for me. I was willing to pay 60$. (And it's a sad truth, that no one downloading an illigal copy does have to sit through FBI warnings he can't fast forward. But on a lot of Blu Rays you buy regularly in the store...

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    Thanks No, I dont want and don't need it that bad. This is something wrldpro doesn't seem to get. I have absolutely no interest in the run if the price and or format is wrong. Its worth 50$ to me for a HD version in mp4. The extra package with a piece of the cloth is just trash for me and...

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    Yes, i own 100s of blurays, 100s of Accu-Stats tapes 100s of CDs and a few Terabytes of pool matches but I don't have Netflix or a single iTunes song because of the copy protection. It's worthless to me because of the use restrictions.

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    Or to sum it up before you write "it's too confusing": I could send you 60$ in 2 minutes with PayPal and you could send me the video file in 15 minutes with Google Drive. But instead you insist that I pay 100$ and wait for 4 weeks to get some restrictded version of the video, which I probably...

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    Here are some examples of things, I want to be able to do with the video, I rightfully bought and own (and I have big concerns, that it is not possible with your overpriced version of the run). For straight pool learning the first one might be the most interesting:

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    the issue seems to be (as so often with copy protected material) that I am not able to watch it, the way I like. I like watching straight pool with VLC player, pausing after break balls, thinking about the way I would play it. Fast forward 10 sec if player take lots of time thinking (more an...

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    yes, very confusing. I am trying to say, it's very easy to get a copy of the run much cheaper. (Like 3-10 people buying one version and splitting the money.) I want to pay the full price of 60$ for the run so that it's actually Jayson who profits from it. And you say, no way. I can only buy it...

    Jayson Shaw’s World Record 714 High Run Video

    Run is worth 50$ to me. I am ok with paying 60$ but not 100$. You (or Jayson) doesn't earn anything with buying USB stick, bringing it to the postal office etc. If you don't know a way to send me the video file securely, there are surely people in here on AZB capable of this. Perhaps Dennis...
