Watched all three parts yesterday and all I can say is WOW!

I have Marks book "Play Great Pool" number 1 of 1000 and enjoyed reading it.
However I fall into the group of being a visual learner. These videos helped me to better understand Chapter 3.

Thanks Mark and hope you continue to produce more videos of different chapters of your book.

Thanks for sharing. Watched them and thought they were very informative.

As previous poster said, I am also a visual learner. Always wished that he would come out with a video version/companion for his book, which, IMHO, is really great.

I find that watching videos like this helps fine tune previous experiences like reading his book, lessons with Scott, etc. Alway keeps me focused for some time after. Thanks for posting.

Watched both yesterday, actually backwards and all I can say is "wow". I also have his book, but as one other said, visual is much better.....everyone needs to see this, even if you're an advanced player.

That's really good stuff, I took two things from that I think can help improve my shot making.

The slowed backswing. I can look back at times I've played better and know I was doing this an other times not so much.

The stance. I know I'm making enough room but think I can tweak it a little to deliver a straighter stroke. Gonna have to video that.


The rail is your best friend.

I really enjoyed it and feel like I got (am still getting) a lot out of it.

Perhaps the best testimonial is that Iíve loaned it to a couple of people and usually they end up buying their own copy.

Really interesting stuff about the time to stroke. Less than .5 sec from the beginning of pull-back to cue ball contact for amateurs, but 1.5 sec for pros.

But I can’t help but wonder why. What is it about the slower backswing and/or pause that improves accuracy?

From a sports psychology standpoint, and I am only guessing here, I would expect it is due to consistency and repeatability. Like kicking a field goal or shooting free throws, players want a practiced and defined pattern each time. Consider a 0.2 second variation in the example you listed. One would be a 40% change to the norm while the pro would be 13%.

You could also assert that almost no one can shoot accurately in <0.3 seconds. With regular variation, the amateur would shoot this often 1:1000 shots while the pro would never.

Try it.
The longer you stare at that shot before the last stroke, the slower the final stroke will be . And your pause at the back will be longer too.
It quiets the brain and the eyes.
