I've tried to do those same things they do during the match.

Like play a standard break shot, but when it backfires, the consequences are awful.

Its the things like watching their patterns and when to play safe, not just shots.
Some of the old time guys never ran more than a rack but would never leave the
opponent a shot. You will pick things up that you can duplicate by watching these guys.

I agree with you the pros play a standard in tournaments.

To replicate that at below the pro level, doesn't seem possible. Without the same talent and skill it costs me more to try to play like that. If I go for their patterns I might mess up so badly I give up the table and leave a 8 ball run.

At a less than pro level, what makes sense to me is pocket the few I have a high percentage on, then go for a safe. From watching the pros, taking a chance on a shot for shape, is something I have a higher chance of screwing up.

I like all of those . George Fels really breaks down the balls really good and easy enough for someone like me to understand . I watched a video of Sigel on straight pool and really liked it and I canít find it on you tube or for sale either(not the perfect straight pool one). Does anybody know where I can the one by Sigel running a 100 balls? Rempeís is my favorite.I have been watching matches by the old timers like Crane and I have learned a little more from watching the matches.Mr. 600 has really good stuff and man does he shoot at a fast pace. Thanks everyone for the help.
