You dont have to apolagize to me as far as I am cocerned you only gave your opinion and I listen to everyones opinion and I belive every one should voice their opinion wether the are wright or wrong or weither we like it or not its better then saying nothing. And I hope you keep playing and learning all the things you need to learn and that goes for everyone. Be the greatest you can be. And maybe we can help to create the greatest one pocket player in life. Because my moey would be on the future player. Because the old and over the hill players cant take it to a higher level anymore. But a young very talanted player can pass us all up if he has the ability and knowledge combined. And I hope such a person comes along. And learns the percentages in one pocket and can play the whole game mistake free and explain exacly what he is doing and WHY. I have given some things to help you with your game and you need to answer the quistions I am asking you yourself. Its ok to ask good player what do I do her but it is more important you learn the lesson then the players who already have the answers. Play hard and play every chance you get. If you want to become a champion and you have the ability. I recomed you eat sleep and think about pool. And if you want it bad enough. Own it. Its all up to the indevidule. And if you dont have the ability of the champion player you can still enjoy the game and learn and understand what you are doing. AND WHY YOU ARE DOING IT. Go ahead and enjoy yourself And the more you learn I promise you you will even enjoy it even more. Because every human being craves for knowledge. And all these players are still playing for the LOVE OF THE GAME. AND IT SHOWES. Be open to learning no mater who it is or how the play. You can learn somthing from everyone. Imagine how great it would be to play a whole game perfect. Their is no greater feeling in life. I have been their and I felte like the whole world was mein. And if you ever get that feeling you will no what I am talking about and how I felt. If you go to the table to practice or play I hope you are playing to learn and wright down what you want to learn. And get the aswers to your quistions. Its a chalange and it is up to you to meet that chalange. I hope everything works out for you and I hope you learn more than the world already knowes. You can do it. Stay positive and keep striving for your goal many people never reach their goal and give up or say it does not matter. But it does matter. You can do whatever you want bad enough. I am trying to incourage you so if that is your goal stay focused tell you reach your goal.gbru said:Nothing but one pocket.
I am starting to hear cleared and clearer what you are describing Artie. There is no doubt that you know what you are talking about. Just in the last couple of weeks I have progressed further along with my recognition of shot selection. When I make a mistake and let whitey get away I am reminded of what you keep saying. Shoot more conservative safe shots until you are more confident that your shooting ability can sustain a somewhat riskier shot selection. Every time I lose a game it is usually because I let whitey get away without fully weighing the penalty of how many balls it's is going to cost me if I miss. Especially if I'm playing someone who is a better shooter. Thanks for all of the advise. Believe me I will use it. And I'm through with the debate on best ever. I'm going to focus more energy and time on getting better myself.
I hope you, Dick, Freddy and others continue to share your knowledge and expetise as freely as you have been doing these last weeks.
Have a nice day
