1) Never take your eyes off the pool table (the game being played) whether you're at the table or watching your opponent. 2) do some research on sports psychology, especially being in the "zone". 3) Play some one pocket. this game requires a lot of concentration to win.
I completely disagree with 1).
I've won several tournaments this year and I don't stare at my opponent or even watch them shoot anymore. Just keep my head down and wait to attack again.
I think exercising and working out will help you, to be honest. It keeps you relaxed and focused. Also, try practicing for a long session every now and then. It's kind of like running a marathon -- you train for the 5k first, then a half, then full. You can't just jump into it and start running like a champion if you're not well-trained.
