How does he get practice time?

You have a home table?

Do him a pool playing favor, keep him off AZB aiming forum.

When he first started we spent 20-24 hours each weekend at the pool hall. He was proving to me he was really in this before I finally got him a table. We got a used GC IV and then traded with some cash for the Diamond.

LOL.... I keep him off here completely except for reading him the comments that he should be aware of.

9 years old and he's practicing on a pro-cut 9ft?

I have a ~10yrs old nephew and he's on my table from the time his parents are over til they leave.
Not much coordination though b/c he doesn't get to play much.

Yeah... our corners are at 4". He wants a snooker table or at least a Chinese 8 ball table for practice. My problem is I'd turn it into firewood within minutes.

He sleeps in the basement at Felt Billiards
Englewood Schools picks him up and drops him off everyday, and the bacon cheeseburgers are pretty good there.

The ice cream at Felt is pretty good also.

Triangles tips and Masters chalk are good enough.

I was at Felt today and played Jin 9 ball.
I asked his father if i should take it easy on him and give him some shots.
His father said no play him normally.

We played about 8 games and he won 2 or 3.
One game he broke dry and i missed a bank on the 1 ball.
Now keep in mind he is 9 years old.
He ran out from the 1 all 9 balls.
He's 9 years old!!!
He shoots 7 foot shots and not only makes them but controls the cue ball.
He's 9 years old!!!
One thing i did notice is that he thinks 3 balls ahead,looks at the shot and then sees where he needs to be on the second shot to get to the 3rd.
Did I mention he's 9 years old!!!
Some day if i live long enough and he becomes a world champion I can say "I beat that kid when I was 72 years old"

Oh and after he played a couple of jam up safes on me i told his father that Jin was off my Christmas list.
