Shoot Pool, not people
He knows! Some people (mostly young ones) have more athletic ability than others and can learn a new sport faster, much faster. Maybe one year as opposed to three. That said, NO ONE ever picked up a cue and starting running racks! I've played pool with world class athletes and they were as inept at pool as any other beginner. If there was ever any real money in pool, then some of these young kids who become star baseball or basketball players would become star pool players instead!I've said it before yes there is natural talent.
We all have seen the players that have played for decades and struggle to run a rack of any game and the player that has been playing a couple years that can run multiple racks.
I see this all the time in the room I go to and for the last 60 years I've been playing.
