I think this is one of my main weaknesses. I'll see a path for the cue that is reliable for SVB but a bit touchy for me, and go for it instead of looking for a more realistic option.Many players at his level think they should play like SVB.
I agree. If your opponent isn't a threat to run out then there's no need to sink balls.I think that 9 ball is a lousy game for players who can't occasionally run out unless there is also money on other balls.
This is what I need to do. There are plenty of runs where they are looking good and I over roll my position, Usually on the 7. Not enough balls to hide behind or bet on the opponent not being able to run out.I would probably spend at least half of my time on the practice table focusing on one and two ball safeties, one ball and rail safeties. You are going to spend more time shooting safeties, spend more time practicing them.
