Thanks for the kind words Jimmy! The instructor in question was not me, but was Randyg...another world-class instructor (and my mentor)...and someone who Mike (DCP) has never even met, let alone worked with.

Most 3's, and 4's I know, seem to have a deficiency understanding basic physics, and the touch of an elephant!

Actually Randyg and I have met. Years ago in Las Vegas in mid-late May at the BCA 9-Ball tournament. The one where men and women played next to each other.

I doubt if he remembers though.

I think we need to reset and realize that the eye dominance correction Gene teaches isn't the whole picture. However after spending a few minutes on it with him. I can fully understand how it could greatly hamper a new player's progress.
You statement at the end here: I can fully understand how it could greatly hamper a new player's progress.[/QUOTE] is spot on. As you help some other players there in Canada you will see how huge this is. When that person you are trying to help line up a shot and misses and misses, but when you help them find this perfect spot for their eye dominance and they line right up, you know this is the answer. Once they can find this they are on their way. Now their hard work will actually pay off a little.

Many of players just like this that i have helped are playing at a higher level for sure. Mitch from Burnsville put me in the loser bracket about a month ago. Two years ago he couldn't make 3 balls in a row. Another one Joe, is battling for the top spot in the master league he plays in. There are so many.

All I can do and any teacher can do is just help who you can and spread the fun. The reason I say fun is because this game is fun. If you can help someone play a little bit better you can help create allot of fun.

Let me know your experiences with the players you are helping. The results I'm sure will be off the charts. This is what holds so many players back, seemingly stuck in their forever skill level.

Good Luck my friend.

A world class instructor will not help a student if they don’t put in the work
I also think it takes more than one session since it’s easy for bad habits to creep back in until they are extinguished by good habits done enough times to be internalized

I'm trying to help players on here by showing and explaining how valuable knowing the dominant eye and what problems it causes. Not only what it causes but how to fix the problems we almost all have with it.

It's been really clear by the few lessons I have done with players on this thread how much it helps.

This bantering about my dad can beat up your dad could be done on another thread for sure.

If a guy is not happy about a lesson that he got and felt like he got cheated because he didn't learn anything valuable that's his freedom of speech right I guess.

Not to call him untrainable or whatever and blame it on him.

Sounds like the student wins here?

If something is going to work it is going to work right away. At least that is what I see with what I teach. if it doesn't work, working at it for months is not the answer.

But i don't think attacking the student is a good idea.

I don't have a dog in this argument but it doesn't look good and I'm just trying to help players here.

And I remember a little further back in this thread you attacked me a little Scott. It didn't even deserve an answer from me.

But I guess you don't know what you don't know unless you totally understand what you didn't know.

Geno,

See the two shots.

On the first shot i seem to be able to "SEE" this shot.

On the 2nd shot i seem to have trouble "SEEING" this shot.

Any thoughts on what the issue is?

Look at one cutting to the right about a 1/4 ball hit and cutting to the left the same way. One will look easier than the other. This will tell me something. We really need to do this on skype. it would make it so simple and easy to figure out.

I meant for both shots to be of the straight-in variety.

The first shot, i seem to see it fine and have no trouble getting set.

The 2nd shot, i seem to have trouble settling into the shot.

You might have your body a little different one way than the other. Your not reaching far with this shot but being right handed when you shoot the ball on the left side your comfortable because of your position of the body. The shot on the right, your body is turned more to the right so your left hip is closer to the table. Making this shot a little more uncomfortable. if you are left eye dominant it would make this worse.

One you might be standing a little bit back further than the other also because of body position.

These are the only 2 things that I can see that effect this shot one way or the other.

Like I said though. It would be a whole lot easier with skype.

I'm guessing here but it's an educated guess anyway.

Two words that come to mind when I think of World Class.

Had a record as great player, and is great instructor.
