You should hear the conversations that go on in between my ears ...its great that you were able to let your subconcious mind do the work while playing
your practice is allowing your brain (its a wonderful thing) to learn what works and what doesnt
.if you dont try to "overide" the programming while playing you will do fine..
great progress hank...yahoooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can talk with the QM (Quartermaster), on Monday, see what he's got to sayi hope you get those tables fixed.
maybe you can make a deal where you chip in $20-50 as credit towards table time
with alittle extra for paying up front....
At $0.25 a pop that would be a lot of table time :heh
another idea i had depending on the number of pool players that regularly use the room would be to have $1-5 dollar donation can towards the repairs.....may not fly ...its still pool players......But and it's a big but, they are all Veterans that have (mostly), been in combat or close to it. We'll see.
try to set the object ball on a marked spot so its in the same place every timeWhitey & lll, Howdy;
Thursday (yesterday), was a decent day, still the attempts to success ratio was
something like 3 or 4 made of 10 attempts. I know it doesn't just 'happen', it
takes time and patience as well as work on my part.
Thanks for all of your help, the small nuggets of information and recommendations
of 'things to try' are truly appreciated and will be used in warm-ups anything
else y'all think of will be gratefully received.
That's what this is about getting some repeatable results on a more consistentIt's just about feel for me. Never liked the diamond system. Just keep practicing. it will come to you!
keep plugging away hankWhitey & lll, Howdy;
Well, spent about an hour with the new (to me), drill doing the cut/pass-over
drill. Really amazing how just a small amount of adjustment it takes to miss
or hit the pocket. I was setting it up with only 1 diamond between Start and
pocket, had OB on line from pocket to diamond next to side pocket and 1
diamond away from the rail. CB was set on the line on the Center Line of the
table and alternate spots were 1 ball dia. either side of original spot. Next time
I'll try with 2 diamond separation and larger separation across the table.
Speed was critical as was the amount of cut/pass-over. Things are a lot closer
on a Bar Box. Gonna need to find a 9 footer to see how one compares to the
other as far as the speed sensitivity goes.
I've got a lot to ponder...
Thanks once more for your support and thoughts.
