any reviews are appreciated~


A billiard table is that richest of metaphors,
by turns a theatre, an altar, touchstone, gauntlet,
ritual ground, a gunfighter's high noon, a refuge,
a verdant landscape for balls to scatter and rest in meaningful synchronicity,
a classroom, a karma dance, mirror of moods, a guide and trusted friend...

Stan Shuffet recommended that to me years ago, and it helped me tremendously - especially the 16 reference shots (can't emphasize this enough!). Practicing and learning those really helped with both my confidence in shot making and understanding how to string patterns together. I think they may be specifically applicable to 9-ball but have helped me with all games.

-Brian


"This ain't pool. This is for bangers. Straight pool is pool. This is like hand-ball, or cribbage, or something. Straight pool, you gotta be a real surgeon to get 'em, you know? It's all finesse. Now, every thing is nine-ball, 'cause it's fast, good for T.V., good for a lot of break shots... Oh, well. What the hell. Checkers sells more than chess." - Eddie Felson
