Practice to change your performance in Billiards
Through billiard practice, a systematic
form of training, you hope to change yourself and not only become a better
player, but a better person. Through personal growth, we gain more
skills and win more games. Pick some unsure elements of your game
and set a plan to change them.
Work on your break
Develop a good break. Always try to
keep the cue ball under control; equally as important, making a ball
on the break and playing position for another shot is keeping the cue
ball from going in a pocket or flying off the billiards table, giving
your opponent ball in hand for his/her first shot is probably the worst
thing you can do.
The plump pigeon
If your kick shots don't include a plan for which side of the object ball
is going to be best to hit, you are one plump, juicy pigeon waiting for
a peregrine falcon to strike.
You must master the shot that cuts a ball along or nearly parallel to
a short rail and brings the billiard cue ball out of there using two rails
with low outside english. Practice this one at all speeds and angles,
especially when you need to go end to end.
Relieve the boredom
Yes billiard practice can be
boring. It is hard work. The harder you work, the more results you will
get. It takes concentration and everyone's attention span is different.
By understanding what billiard practice really is, and that only Perfect
Practice will make perfect, can we discipline ourselves to longer practice.
Don't sweat the small
The goals of stance are stability, consistent sighting, and a simple swing.
If you fulfill those goals, don't worry about the details.
Some people spend far to much time pointing their toes in exactly the
right direction, or keeping their Pinky off the wrap, or adopting some
other little quirk that their uncle Fred assured them was the golden rule
for pocketing balls.
Are you solid can you see the shot? Can your arm swing freely?
The details will take care of themselves and you will free yourself to
concentrate on what really matters.
Have fun with practice
Relax and have fun while you are practicing. Way too many sessions result
in nothing because the desire to score outweighed the need to learn. .
Concentration doesn't mean you have to tighten up. Tightening up will
only minimize your chances for success.
How we learn
#1 To learn something, we must Isolate, Concentrate, Exaggerate, and Repeat.
--Isolate a particular problem, or new element you want to learn. Focus
your practice time on these specifics.
--Concentrate not only on these specifics but each individual shot until
you get it.
--Exaggerate by slowing down the shot, to the point you can see every
detail. Making it is not half as important as seeing everything that goes
into the shot. Your alignment, billiard cue tip impact point, billiard
cue ball impact with object ball and the natural direction of the billiard
cue ball after impact, all are paramount.
--Repeat---Once you have the details fixed in your mind, repeat the shot
10-20 times keeping track of how many you miss and analyze your misses
#2 Only Perfect Practice makes perfect
#3 Practice drills are most productive when they are progressive drills.
#4 "Our minds can only absorb what our butts can endure!"
#5 We practice in the Conscious mind and play in the Subconscious mind.
A good "cue ball control" drill that you can vary every time
you practice is to randomly place one object ball anywhere on the table.
Now mark this spot on the table with a piece of chalk so you can replace the object ball after every shot. Next, select a starting
position for the cue ball and mark it with a piece of chalk.
The drill is to pocket object ball and select a different shape position
for your cue ball to end at in each time.
Continue until you feel confident that you can get position from this
shot to almost anywhere on the table.
Learn to Read...
Learn to read with an open but critical mind. Some pool books are riddled
with errors, but most have some useful information.
If there is no way to test what an author is saying, the point is probably
of little value.
Learn to execute
You will reach the point where you are able to execute your intended shot,
knowing you can do it. When you pull the trigger on a shot you know where
the cue ball is going after impact. You have no reason to freeze over
the shot. Let it go.
