It happens all the time. I will never forget the time my buddy broke his dad's Meucci when we were only 14 back in the 90's. He was shooting one armed while talking to his girlfriend on the cordless phone. She said something that made him mad and he snapped it over the table.

He may be use to playing on a easy table and switched to a harder table...never know?


Don't let your bark be bigger than your stroke.

If I had plenty of money, I would probably lose more often.

Use the Deano formula - 07-16-2019, 05:26 AM

Dean has never been a great player but has busted a lot of them. He had always
played other games very well (golf, cards, baseball etc.) but never got to
be a top pool player. He recognized this and concentrated on matching up good.
You will be real surprised how taking home the dough makes you not be so
bothered by your level of play. But Dean was never a nut hunter, he would and
still will, mix it up with anyone. It is hard to play your speed against a player that
is much better than you, that is why a player can give the weaker player so much
weight, but Dean could play his speed no matter who he played, and that is very
hard to do. There were a lot of players that never missed a ball that stayed broke
( Louie, Greg Stevens, etc). Getting the cash is all that matters. Now if you don't
gamble, then by all means break your cue.

Failure is part of the process. Think about what you're showing your kids. Do you think it's ok for them to throw temper tantrums when things don't go their way? No? Then why is it ok for you to do the same thing?

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Where I live we care about pool players.
Pool Safety includes not snapping your cue.

I'm gonna go the other way on this and say snapping a cue is totally fine. I've snapped one cue ever (behind the joint, like a real man) and it was a custom 31" butt that I absolutely loved and planned to play with for as long as it lasted. Typically I'm very even-keeled, but I was frustrated with my play and a lot of alcohol and money was involved. Anyway, I was embarrassed and swore off pool forever. When I did finally get back into it, about a year later, I came with a new approach, mostly in regards to my attitude and the way I practiced. It was the best thing that ever happened to me pool-wise.


thats just like, your opinion man
