Thank you for that link, Bob.

I remember when I was started playing pool on a bar box. The first time i saw a 9' table, it looked like a football field.

The snooker table is unbelievable! I've never really watched the game being played before, but very much enjoyed that video.

Thought this thread was about Tors vidio on the mental game? The Book Inner Tennis has been around a long time , and used by many in other sports.The left and right side of the brain working differently on mechanics during practice and the visual of the shot during play are facts. If you never read the book you dont know what its about and if you haven't seen the video you dont know enough to comment on it. And if you think the mental side doesnt matter ?

Yeah Rico, its pretty sad that this thread went sideways. The whole intent was to inform players that Zero-X has produced a new video (available on DVD or Digital Download) helping students with the mental side of the game.

The video is excellent and is an eye opener.

For those that have viewed the video your comments posted here are very welcome.

Thank you.

I will say that the video has really changed what I'm doing. My results are very interesting. I think it will take some effort to let go, but when I do, WOW...

His grandfather was a good player and defeated John Roberts Sr. in 1865. Walter's father and older brother were players. His father ran billiard rooms in the goldfields of Australia and elsewhere. Walter watched his older brother (by 10 years) being trained by his father and wanted very much to play. Billiards was what his family did. He was allowed to start practicing when he was about 8 or 9 and (according to his biography) was allowed to use only one ball for the first six months. At 12 he saw John Roberts Jr. play and later claimed he could remember and replay an entire 600-point break that Roberts had made.

Interestingly, Walter's father changed him from a naturally right-handed player to playing left-handed. That was because Walter was missing part of a finger on his right hand and could not grip the cue well with it. In films/videos you can notice his bridge hand does not look quite right. Sigel is also a right-hander who shoots left.

I urge everyone to get and read this biography by Andrew Ricketts which is packed full of interesting historical details:

Attachment 523202
Sorry to stay off-topic, but as an Australian who used to play a lot of billiards, Lindrum is a special name for me.

I believe his father also had some pretty strict rules regarding practice (being forced to stay at the table for 6+ hours).

His instructional book is also amazing. A good friend of mine is a multiple Australian champion and has a high break of 964. He discovered billiards fairly late in his life. His college had a snooker table, and he found Lindrumís book on billiards and spent a year alone with that book and the table before even meeting anyone else who plays billiards or snooker. He would spend hours with an object ball on the rail, cueball about 2-3 inches away, just double kissing the cueball back in a straight line to his tip. If you look for Danik Lucas on YouTube you can find some 400 and 500 breaks of his. Any book that can get a player to the point of knocking in centuries without any interaction with anyone else is pretty amazing.

Actually, hereís 300 points of top of the table: https://youtu.be/72Hb96zYBdw

I'm a Patreon member and also have the DVD.

1 hour and 42 minutes of presenting a Mental System for you to improve the mental side of your game. A lot of time and work went into this topic. You won't regret the purchase.

It would be wise to use a note pad to write down key notes (bullets) of the video to trigger specific areas of the video. You may have to watch and listen to the video several times, maybe once a week until everything starts to become automatic. I'll listen to my DVD every Sunday for a month maybe even longer.

Get the popcorn and a drink ready, sit back and enjoy one of the most interesting DVD's you will ever watch.

Have fun out there.

I agree that this is another in a long line of top-notch DVD's put out by Tor and the Zero-X Team. As with all of his other DVD's you cannot go wrong with the Mental System as I begin watching it again today.

I am just really impressed with the amount of time and dedication that is put into each product to produce material for the pool community to help improve their game.

Thanks Tor, for another superbly produced product that is sure to help me reach my goal of making SVB my rack boy. Okay, maybe a little beyond reality, but it will still help me improve.

This DVD will probably be remembered and go down in history as The Inner Game of Pocket Billiards for many years to come. A great piece of work.

Glad to see some well deserved comments on Tor,s work. Patreon is also another great addition.But like everything you have to do the work,put the time in.The mechanics are important but without the mental toughness you cant perform. You never can control your opponent but can control yourself. Keep it coming Tor

I bought the video and it is very eye opening. My main takeaway was to "get out of the way of yourself"

The mental game in any endevour boils down to confidence and belief in your ability. Positive mental attitude.
