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) Do you play the opponent or play the table?

(About the Author)

HOBGlogo95-book

This question has been asked to players of many levels. Several pro-level players, when asked, recommend concentrating on playing the table. Their rationale is based on the fact that since you are on the table, and your opponent isn’t, so just run out the balls and win the game. Their competence makes this a viable approach to competition. There are several thousands of professional players. There are millions of regular players. Their approach works for them because, when given an opportunity to shoot, the table gets run out to the win.  Continue reading
