I ordered Joe Tucker's 3rd eye stroke trainer. I was skeptical at first, but now I realize that I was not aligning to the center of the cueball correctly even though I thought I was. So it was definitely worth the nominal price.

Book. 99 Critical Shots by Ray Martin. DVD= Almost anything from Joe Tucker. For the guy/gal just starting to play, believe it or not=The Black Widow's DVD. It' a got all the basics starting with the feet all the way to position and jumping. It's a no BS, no gimmick DVD teaching pool the honest way. Johnnyt

+1000...the video does not lie! I remember Randy breaking down my whole process (or lack thereof) and it was a real eye opener. After watching the video I told him I was probably the worst APA 7 in terms of fundamentals and was amazed I could even shoot like I did with those bad fundys. Fortunately he told me he had seen much worse

I'll give 3 but in different time periods.

When I started, the best thing was the Byrons Stadard Book of Pool/Billiards. I pretty much learned from that book and some AccuStats videos to play.

As I got better, I'd have to say AccuStats videos alone got me through, and also watching/playing better players although that's not a training aid, but I did not really have anything else when I was a C player.

At a B level, the best learning I got was from a few Bert Kinister tapes ( two in particular, the "It's A Hanger" and tapes #55 and #56) and the Joe Tucker racking video.

A level, well, we're not quite there yet even on my best night. I can go though some racks like an A player, maybe even a set, but never over a whole tournament.

Unfortunately the Third Eye Trainer doesn't seem to be available anymore. You can buy the white fork (I forget its name) that fits on the ferule and makes sure you're hitting centerball, but the clear plastic "viewer" can't be found anywhere. I even asked Joe and he doesn't have them. It's a shame because it would really help me, now that I'm looking at the OB instead of the CB.

If anyone has one for sale, let me know!

I've got a handful of books and DVDs but nothing that has benefited me much more than instructional videos available on youtube (big thanks to DrDave, forcefollow, Max Eberle, Mike Page, Brian Gramse, Mika Immonen and many others.

As someone mentioned earlier, some of my best education has simply been watching pro matches on youtube, particularly in learning How to Play Safe.

Buddy Hall stroke trainer. That goofy clear tube is worth it's weight in gold to help straighten a stroke.

99 critical shots.

Winning one pocket/SM&S. It's somewhat advanced for a beginner but it makes you think about possibilities.


10 years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. Now we have no Jobs, no Hope and no Cash.

I was arrested and the judge said life in prison, or you can join an APA league. I wish now that I had taken the prison term.
