I'd tell him that the only way out of a slump is to shoot your way out of it....and that's hard to do with a broken cue.

All power to the ones who like and use them...that being said, few things look as wildly out of place, as a glove on a bad player .
(or a $2000 cue that they dont know how to use)

Of course, if my cues matched my level, I would have a pool-noodle, but thats another story! 😝

Great advice from everyone, only thing is....all of you are missing the fact that he clearly has anger issues, and they have nothing to do with playing pool, it just happens to be the outlet at the moment. What is this guy like behind the wheel of a car in rush hour traffic???

Suicide is a desperate attempt to improve your situation.....
...it doesnt work
Breaking your cue is suicide by proxy....
...it doesnt work either

But, how bad would that player play without the glove?

Pro players use them because they feel it gives them a better advantage by having a consistent feeling with their bridge.

Is it unreasonable to suggest that even a not-so-good player have that same feeling?

I just don't get the criticism of any product a player, good or bad, chooses to use.

Remember....at one time or another you probably were a not-so-good player yourself.

Anger and temper tantrum out bursts!!

Several years ago a customer playing Blackjack at the Riverside Casino in Tukwilla, WA lost a big bet to the dealer, and in doing so jumped up from the table and accused the dealer of cheating!!!! Security told him to go cool off outside the casino, so they walked him out. 30 minutes later, he came back, told the front door security people he'd cooled off, and was ready to go back to playing cards again, so they let him back in. He walked right up to the same Blackjack table, pulled out a .357 magnum revolver and put 3 slugs into the dealer, killing him where he sat before security could subdue him....it was later found out he'd lost his home mortgage payment, and was behind in his payments as it was.

What advice would all of you given him....don't gamble if you can't afford to lose????? It was found out later he had a history of temper problems and had been in and out of jail because of it!!!!

What advice would I have given him? Go into the woods and blow your own brains out. Seriously. Would suggest he get help. Find out why he hates his own life. Figure it out and change his lifestyle. Sad truth is some people are head cases ...always were and always will be.

He doesn't need second hand advice from a bunch of chuckleheads on an internet forum and I don't think anyone was offering actual advice. Post a funny pic and I wouldn't offer or expect anything other than funny(ish) answers.
