in pool rooms all over the states. watch and learn to clock each persons speed realistically. and just play with or give the spot that makes you a winner. if you dont have enough the best of it then you also cant adjust and are very limited to the money you can make.
yes you get to sit on the side more but you get to sit there with a pocket full of money which also makes you more desirable to play with from the big losers in the room.
this is if you are there to make money and have fun.

but if you want constant action then be prepared to be a loser but have more fun playing. to each his own

I think it depends on how much you know now. If you can play anyone in the room for twenty dollars and come out on top. Move up to thirty dollars a game. And so on..........

As usual, you manage to misconstrue what I write in the worst way possible.

I’m not even going to bother explaining. Past experience has shown that to be a futile exercise.

I see what happened -- I breezed through the thread in standard view, but then viewed just your posts as admin, given you just returned to posting here. In that manner I conflated two of your posts which read worse to me when viewed like that. Looking at the full context of your posts I can see that was not fair to you, and I apologize Lou.

Jeremy Jones gives One Pocket lessons here in the DFW and surrounding area's, it's normally by the hour and I wouldn't consider it cheap but it's very in depth knowledge of the actual game. He's not going to spend 45mins of your 2 hours fixing your stroke, it's a lot of game theory, shot selection ect.

The Tom Worth stay in Lesson/Camp sounds awesome though, especially during this pandemic!

Hi,

I'm in Central Florida and I also do One Pocket lessons....
Per game and/or per hour are both acceptable methods of instruction, and they both have their merits.

Sincerely,

Adam Wheeler

1 game session.... please describe. How does the $$$ work?
We decide on a $ per game, then I point out shots I would recommend and why. Sometimes, I let them shoot the wrong shot, then set it back up and show them all of the variants that were available. Then they decide which one they can execute the best for their skill level.

I am good at gauging skill levels, so I try to show people things they can execute within a reasonable percentage. I also show higher level stuff in case they are looking to expand their repertoire.

The issue I have when doing an hourly (one pocket) lesson is its hard to recreate scenarios, in both layout and consequences. In games, situations arise and can be dealt with one at a time. The same ball layout doesn't always have the same solution.
