Kind of like in the wild west. If you would jump on a buffalo with a knife and stick it's neck trying to stop it and you get blood in your eye your would hardly notice that you could not see out of that eye.
I'm left eye dominant so I shoot a little side arm.
If I put my right eye over the shaft I cant make a ball.
Been like that my whole life.
We probably did meet in 2009 if you came to Felt or Hanks.
Lower level players don't have enough natural talent, no matter what lessons they get, how much they practice, etc. Sorry for the truth, but it's the truth.
All the best,
I am tired of people being so sure other people can't do something. I did it. I am proof it can be done. And if you think I was naturally talented you haven't seen me play, don't know my story, and don't know what I've put in.
How are you so sure?
Name a player that has played 10 hours a day for years, then played on the pro tour for another handful of years, that hasn't played high level pool. Not "#1 in the world", but high level. Able to win local tournaments and compete in pro events.
WW is dead on. You can have the heart of a champion but not ever win anything at pool. Taking lessons to go from banger to champion is a fools errand.
I think having strong motivation -- like hating to lose -- is a huge factor. A common motivation you see in the children of champions who also become champions is that the family expects it from the child. Playing well is what the family does.Thank you for making it sound so honourable...
Truth is, I just really hate losing

Pool is fun and addictive but if you really suck at it not so much.
I take every chance I can when I'm at the pool hall to show some unexpecting couple how to get the eyes right and the reactions are so rewarding. They are there trying to play pool and have hardly no chance to play good.
Many of these players that i teach i see them again and again and they always come back over and say hi.
We are all in our separate world as far as what we know about pool and what we can do. When we learn something that expands that world a little and makes it more fun we just want to do it more. We really don't know how much we don't know, we just know that we learned another thing that really helps us enjoy the game. And this dominant eye stuff is something that will help them forever.
They don't know how limited their knowledge is because they don't know at the time how much they don't know until they learn more .
But it is fun to make the ball go into the hole, have a few drinks and enjoy the night.
The fire is started but it's just a smolder at this time.
You just never know where the fire will start blazing away.
All of a sudden we have another pool plater added to our pool family.
