It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that ping.
That makes sense. I went down to the table and I found I actually do glance at the cue ball for a bit then back to the object ball before pulling the trigger. If nothing else it helps you remember which spin you're applying. I'm still learning and not some kind of world beater but I cant make jack **** if I don't look at OB last.As far as I'm concerned, cue ball last should be developed because there is a confirmation bias happening when you see the cut angle. IOW you tend to subliminally cinch what you're shooting at. Yes many a machino blaze away in this manner. The problem arises when this automatic shot reasoning starts to drift. You can't tell; for one. And by the time the method fails, it's too late.
Then you you do the jock thing and tough it till you recover.
About the edit thing, I was using google chrome and there are literally no buttons, no avatars, nothing, just a grey box and quick reply at the bottom. I fired the site up in firefox and it's all there. I feel pretty dumb but there literally was no edit function on chrome for some reason lol. Thanks!
