You have multiple pool sites? How bout some links to those also.



Here's my response containing the facts:
In the 8 second video I see a carpet, a pen, a hand and forearm (which I assume are yours) and some round thing (I don't know what it is) sitting on the carpet. What I don't see are a pool table, a pool cue or a cueball.
If you think that demonstrates or proves your assertions about swooping then your out of your mind.



How many times do I have to tell you I have no interest in a lesson. My reason for the review post was to give one of your satisfied students an opportunity to tell us how great you are. Didn't happen.

Re: lesson/ You're in Fla. I'm in NH. How can I possibly get a lesson? Through some video chat platform? Once again you're displaying your ignorance if you think you can give any kind of effective pool lesson that way.

Re: swooping/ No one is disputing that some people address the CB in a certain way and then hit it elsewhere. This could be by swooping or something else. It's irrelevant however. The exchanges between you and I and those between you and others have nothing to do with swooping. You can't seem to grasp that.
It's that you continue to make incorrect and/or way out in left field statements (and sometimes out and out fabrications) and when questioned fail to provide any evidence supporting them. You can gloss over this all you want but I can give plenty of examples if you'd like. From this thread, other threads on AZB and from liveabout.com/mattsherman. Let me know, it's a long weekend, I'm not doing much and am in need of some entertainment.
I have answers for all of your questions above, but let's start with you going back and answering a single question I've posted for you in this thread, since I've asked you about two dozen questions!

Start with this one: "How do top playing pros who aim and practice stroke at the absolute base of the cue ball for all shots get english without a swooping stroke?"

Quite difficult to see clearly due to camera angle and blurry video, but looks like he hit the cue ball with the right edge of his cue stick tip, the cue moving left, imparting a bit of left spin with a small swoop.

They could be moving their bridge hand to the spot where they want the cue to go to
rather than maintaining the bridge position

Duh. 2 posts ago (#270) I addressed that question. You must have missed it, or possibly, saw but failed to comprehend (why am I not surprised). Anyway, I'll repeat myself .
"Re: swooping/ No one is disputing that some people address the CB in a certain way and then hit it elsewhere. This could be by swooping or something else."

Okay, now you can answer the questions I asked as you said you would (highlighted in blue above).
Wait...hold the presses. I just realized you didn't actually say you'd answer my questions.
Yeah what you said is "I have answers for all of your questions above". Just because you have the answers doesn't mean you're actually going to divulge them.
Sorry, my mistake. Let the doublespeak march on.

I have answered every question you've posted until the most recent, exceptionally rude post. I've answered some of them with 9 or 10 separate points, with no replies. You are yet to answer the question, so I'll rephrase:

What is the "something else" that is not swoop (a change of direction on the final forward stroke), since they aim at absolute dead center, then backstroke to absolute dead center on the final stroke?

You are saying pros move the bridge hand during their final forward stroke, aiming at the base of the ball, backstroking to dead center, then moving the bridge hand on the final forward stroke, as in the OP?

I speculate it was just bad follow through. You can even see his cue steer to the right when he got up early .
https://youtu.be/MnT22XJlDHo?t=579

Lord, that 9 was a hanger and the cue ball was in no danger of scratching unless he drew it .
The 9 also went in almost hitting the end rail facing. He hit it a little fat.

Here , he shoots a perfect center follow when you think he needed a little inside.
https://youtu.be/MnT22XJlDHo?t=478

But, people are going to think he's doing some top secret stuff. Well, some anyway.
Reminds me of people claiming Earl Strickland turns the cue on his follow through to get more spin.

I'll answer that just to make you happy and then maybe you could answer my questions from post #270. You know, the ones you said you had answers to.
Let's see...where to start? Oh, I guess maybe at the transition point from backstroke to forward stroke.
I'm not going to say whether I paused or not cuz that's a secret.
Anyway, first I took some practice strokes aiming at the base of the CB and also at the center of the CB. Now I'm ready to hit the ball.
I could come straight forward but I kinda wanted to put some right english on the CB. Let's not forget that we don't want to miscue, that would be a disaster.
Hmm, what to do. I've got it, I'll do a swoop stroke. No,no, wait a minute,I can't do that. BilliardsAbout already knows how to swoop. He's looking for "something else".
Hey, how bout this. What I'll do is, I'm going to send the tip of my cue directly at the point I want to hit on the right side of the CB.
Impossible you say. Nope, it's pretty easy actually. Not only that but top pros have been doing it for a hundred plus years.
How is that possible? I'll tell you what. You answer the questions I asked in post #270 and I'll tell you how it's done... for free.
Is that a deal or what.

Hint: the future resides in the past and, part of the following is not necessarily reality but just your perception----"since they aim at absolute dead center, then backstroke to absolute dead center on the final stroke"

PS---Bet PJ can figure it out.

I don't think there's much sense in arguing this nonsense, but of course you could angle the cue on the final stroke by moving the back hand sideways on the back stroke (straight forward stroke) or on the forward stroke (swooping forward stroke).

I think doing more than one stroke with the cue angled is best.

Nonsense is correct. I feel like such a moron because everyone else gave up on trying to reason with About long ago.
You all saw it was hopeless and here I am still beating my head against the wall.
Well, no more, I've seen the light.
I have no regrets though. I think through all our efforts we've spread the word that it would be a huge mistake to actually pay money to this guy for a lesson.
Gonna swoop on over to the 14.1 forum where I belong.
