The "why" of the success of CTE and the coaching of Stan Shuffett

A person I know and I had dinner with Parica in Pioneer. CA one time.
He was taking lessons from Jose.
Jose told us by the time he was 12, he could run 15-ball rotation.
He said his brain is just like a computer when he's on the table.
And he told his pupil not to use English unless he has to.
Told him Busti misses shots because he uses spin often when not needed.

There is a "system" which has been proven to be successful. It's called the Tiger Woods System and it will work for both pool and golf. You start playing when you are 3 1/2 years old and you play for at least 12 hours a day for the rest of your life.

The guys who think they can buy a game by watching videos are the guys real players pray for.

Rule # 1 "Never give a sucker an even break."

Rule # 2 "A sucker is born every day."

The one where everyone is guessing or speculating ?

If you speak better Tagalog, maybe you can translate what Jose told us.
" Wag kang gumamit masyado ng pektus." .


No, watch the video. He actually lined up with right and hit it slightly with left. Translate that.

More than one way to skin a cat, unless you are Tiger Woods of course. Are you the Tiger Woods of pool?

LOL That's what i thought.
Cookie-e-e-e-e, going back and forth about this method with closed minded people is merely 'fattening frogs for snakes'.
They thrive on thinking they're center stage....when they're merely non-descript wannabe's.
Come on Cookie...you've been watching this absurdity for quite a while now.
Ignore, Ignore, Ignore

How many if those European and Asian greats now do you think have secret aiming systems?
I think none.
They all see the shot and shoot it shooters.
JS ran 626 balls with no secret aiming system.
Im not sure about that. But my gut tells me that most great players by nature will not go around sharing how they process the game and aim. I dont see the value in being hostile, or ridiculing people we disagree with. I have been told by one instructor that most players use a system. It may look like they jist get down and shoot but probably are just proficient in using thier system. I know a player who does not read any books or watch vidoes. He play good but has not improved notably since i have known him.

And in your local room, the best players have no clue about secret aiming systems.

You (and cookie) are the most negative, content-free posters in this forum for a long time now. Do the forum a favor and take your own advice, CTE trolls.

Hey Cookieman....I "cooked up" this bit of satire over in the Main Forum where they were arguing about John Schmidt's run of 626 balls and whether it's all fake and all that stuff.
Don't know if you saw it or whether you go into that section or not, so I'm bringing it here and changing some words so it applies to "aiming in pool". Enjoy.
Don't you think it sounds like some of these people...?? :thumbup:
Here 'tis....
A POOL FORUM CONVERSATION
"He ran over 90 balls in straights using the CTE aiming system"
"No he didn't, it was a setup, he doesn't use a system, he just sees the shot"
"Did you see it?"
"Did you?"
"What does that matter? "
"It matters a lot"
"Why?"
"Because I said so, that's why"
"Well, who died and made you king of the forums?"
"Doesn't matter, I was at Johnston City and I've seen the best..nobody who plays good uses that CTE bull"
"I Just don't like you"
"So what, I don't like you either, you wanta' bet something?"
"Yea. lets play some straights for a thousand"
"Make it ten thousand"
"No, let's make it for our lives...winner gets to push the loser in front of the bus"
"The bus doesn't run down this street"
"Yes it does"
"Does not"
"Does so, I used to drive that bus"
"I will beat your ass first"
"No you won't"
"Yes I will, I have a 32nd degree black belt in Sigmund kubra kai.
"I have a 33rd degree black belt....so bite down on them apples, fool"
"I still say he didn't use CTE, its a fake"
"No it isn't a fake, my sister's husband was there"
"You're lying.... anyhow, your sister is a Ho"
"No, you're lying and your mammy is a bigger Ho than my sister"
"It ain't no accident that you look like me, chump"
"I said you were lying first"
"No you didn't. This is my 56th post in this thread...so YOU were lying first".
And as the sun settled in the West, the band played on:thud:

A sitting duck 9-ball and you're analyzing what he did ?
Can't wait for the disguised pivot next.

And the fact remains, Jose didn't have to use english but did anyway. And lining up with right english and shooting with left, guess what, the cue has to pivot.

You mean your facts.
He also wonkered the tip to the right after getting up.
And you can't prove he just mishit the ball.


You have theories there from scooping to he didn't hit it inside.

It's not a theory that he didn't use inside. There's video proof. Check the reaction of the CB

All speculation on what he did.
I say he did not give it a full quality stroke and follow becuase it was a lame duck 9. He could make that one handed chomping on a steak.
His tip wondered to the right and the scoop stroke was brought up.
