The big difference - 04-14-2019, 07:03 PM

The big difference between developing strategic thinking playing pool or chess is that chess can be played almost any time and almost anywhere. It is a bit tougher to tote a pool table around than a chessboard or internet accessible device.

In chess like one pocket we have to not only be working on our own attacks but be watching closely to see what the other player is attempting. It is worth remembering that both pool and chess originated as war games to help young men learn strategy for the battlefield.

I wouldn't play chess to help my pool game if I didn't enjoy chess but I think it unquestionably helps develop battlefield awareness, doesn't matter if the battlefield is a checkered board or a field of green.

imo chess puzzles help playing pool more than actual games.

This thread may explain why I yelled out to my opponent, "Mate in three!," the other day playing one-pocket.


"He knew what those jubilant crowds did not know, but could have learned from books; that the plague bacillus never dies or disappears for good...and that perhaps the day would come when, for the bane and the enlightening of men, it would rouse up its rats again and send them forth to die in a happy city."
