Question Best Dr. Dave Videos / Video sets for newbies? - 10-22-2019, 10:34 PM

Iíve seen Briesathís videos - several times. Theyíre gems and Iíll watch them again no doubt. Iíve got Poolology, but I feel like I need more visualization and foundational understanding before I can really pull from it just yet.

Dr. Dave appears to go pretty deeply into some things that Iím thinking will benefit me and my son, such as understanding Ďinduced throwí etc. etc. And no doubt, other things I donít know that I donít know yet.

In the interim Iím working on my stroke: pre-shot routine, stepping in, stance, smooth, straight, pendulum, grip, set-pause-finish, follow through.

Anyway, if youíd recommend just one of Dr. Daveís sets to get a more advanced understanding... (again for a couple of newbies that are hungry for info)? Iím sure Iíll wind up with a few of his offerings, again though, best set to begin with...

Thanks!

PS: almost put this in the aiming sub, but didnít seem to quite fit there. Please move if Iíve made a mistake!


Make no mistake, the Bolshevik menace is making its move ó right now ó in the United States, to forever destroy our Constitution and way of life. Will you go quietly into that bleak hellscape, knowing that the Orwellian boot will forever be upon the face of our progeny? - JackOfNoTrades

All of Dr. Dave's videos are great. Also take a look at Tor Lowry's Zero X videos. I learned a lifetime of info from those. Good luck.


I do a hell of a job working around the holes.
Trust me aimings not your problem

I have the VEPP which is pretty sweet. It goes over basic stuff pretty quickly but thoroughly then gets more advanced. I’ve been slacking on my structured practice though and this has reminded me to get back to it.

I also have the VEPS I think it’s called. The encyclopedia of pool shots. This one I don’t like quite as much because even though it has a lot of good shots, from what I’ve watched so far he never give actual coordinates to set up these shots. You can set them up yourself and get close but in some situations you can’t be sure you have everything the same and what you’re trying to replicate may be impossible due to just a small difference in angle or whatever so you can’t be sure if you’re doing it wrong or setting up wrong.

Awesome! After reading a bit and looking at Dr. Daveís video sets, I had VEPP as my horse. Barring other definitive opinions from yíall, this is what I was going to go with. Looks like a lock.

Hopefully Santa will have extra room in his bag of toys

(I might add Tor Lowry too. He appears to have some good stuff.)

Seriously, thank you.

I hope you enjoy and benefit from my stuff,

Thank you Dr. Dave! Maybe one day we can enroll in your personal school in Colorado.

I was going to say the "How to aim pool shots" video, which I see as kind of an updated and shorter version of the Video encyclopedia of pool shots. But to be honest, he has so much freely available, that I'd start with all the free stuff first.

Thank you.

Iíve been enjoying his free YouTube videos - still watching them ;-) They are indeed chock full of fantastic information, and there are a lot of them as you well know!

Maybe itís a sign of the times, and zero aspersion towards Dr. Dave, but I imagine the real goodies are behind the paywall. I know mine would be. What can I say, Iím a red-blooded American capitalist.

We still have some spot open in the Advanced Course of the Billiard University (BU) Summer School Boot Camp next July, and I give private lessons throughout the year via Dr. Dave' Pool School.

Let me know if and when you want to sign up or visit.

Regards,
Dave

Thank you Doc.

I ordered your VEPS DVD set from Seybertís today! Thanks for the input.

You're a class act Dr. Dave. Thanks for your work and always being a gentleman.

You mean to tell me that the good Dr. Dave has never once lost it and told a bunch of you knuckleheads here where to stick it? Dang!





















lol j/k ... oops!!!



PS: On a serious note Dr. Dave, VEPS is likely just my first purchase of your materials. No doubt Iíll end up with more. From what Iíve read, your prices for what you teach are slam-dunk worth it.

VEPS was an epic project. Tom Ross an I spent many weeks together planning and filming for it, and his wealth of experience and playing skill really added a lot to the project. I hope you enjoy and benefit from it.

Best regards,
Dave
