Don’t Completely Suck at Pool

Okay, so I don't completely suck at pool. I played reasonably well today and nearly broke and ran a rack of nine balls, which is quite an accomplishment considering I sometimes have trouble making a single ball. I changed my stance a little to a more open position and that has eliminated a lot of extra movement in my arm. I also realized that you can't aim the top of the tip at the center of the ball or, duh, you're actually hitting just below center. I'll post a drill to Billiards Drills .com later tonight to talk about I worked on correcting that.

I played a game of 8-ball against Chris, one of the owners. I can't be sure what the deal was, but he missed three shots and I managed to win the second game against him. He'd have won the third if he didn't try to make the 8 by banking a minimum of three rails, and he handily won the first.

Incidentally, as soon as Chris and his partner Dan decide on the setup, the forum at http://greatlakesbilliards.com/forum/ will be open. The site itself will be open sometime within a month or so of that.

  1. I don't mean to really sink your boat here but in the beginning especially, people have just days. Go a few spread-out days, not just a single round of games, before to conclude that you don't suck. Most people just suck until their practice a lot lot lot.

  2. Uhhh, Timen, thanks for being a tool. Since you clearly have no idea what I mean by "suck," I'll just let this all go.
