Welcome to all Pool & Billiards Players

Howdy folks –

First of all, thanks for coming by to check out my blogs – there’s a LOT of posts. That said – allow me to be straight up with you about learning.

Right now, you are like millions of others – tips (like my blogs) are good – but basically, your standard style of study is to learn from personal experience. Your acceptable status quo is to enjoy the joy of winning (once in a while), and suffer the humiliation of losses (far too often).

Here’s a reminder about a fact of life – it’s stupid  for anyone to think learning from mistakes is quick and easy. You can do it – but it is VERY painful.  Take steps to save yourself from most of that future pain and enjoy more episodes of joyful happiness.

Each book and video is a summation of 50 years of playing stupid, then figuring out how to stop. These are (for you) cheap concentrated packages that contain decades of personally suffered bad experiences – and lessons learned. They all have a single purpose – to make you the Intelligent Shooter.

I urge you to try out my PDF books – they work on all smart devices. That means you can study the information anytime, anyplace. And for the armchair researcher – get the printed book on Amazon (or other online book stores).

Psst – I provide author support (as long as I’m still alive). As you study one of my books, I will answer any questions about the material.

(GK) What should you consider when buying a first cue?

(About the Author)

HOBGlogo95-book

(This is just a general set of guidelines for beginning players getting ready to get their first personal shooter. It’s a starting point of things to consider, not a solid buying guide.)

There are a lot of sticks available (custom and production). Most anything in the range of $150 to $400 will work. When you first start thinking about a personal playing stick, it’s always a good idea to talk it over with several players and get some understanding on why they like their stick and how they decided on that as their primary pool tool..

(GK) What you need to know about one-rail banking?

(About the Author)

HOBGlogo95-book

Almost all players have difficulty being consistent with banking. Most people (rightly so) consider banks to be low percentage. When you make an attempt, you can protect yourself by playing it as a two-way shot. If you make it, you are on the next ball. If missed, it doesn’t hurt you. Continue reading
