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...

The idea of a pool coach is definitely a new stereotype not portrayed in film or media.

It is a quality production.

If one can afford it, a pool coach is where it's at really. I know it has changed me a lot and even outside the table.

Excellent stuff here from one of Europe's legendary player.

The points Niels makes about breathing are very important. I'd single out Ewa Mataya Lawrence as having been especially effective in using the right breathing patterns to think and execute clearly and to maintain a good playing rhythm.

From what I've seen in the Pro Snooker ,
They all have coaches ...
I recall seeing on youtube,
a clip of a young Steven Hendry with his coach,
watching tapes of previous matches and,
being coached and instructed
I think the coaching did well for Steven Hendry-
"Pretty sure Steven won 7 out of 10 years in a row WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SNOOKER MATCHES

In a pool room coaching looks like hazing.
