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 are some bad habits to avoid?

  • English

(About the Author)

HOBGlogo95-book

The vast majority of pool players, both casual and regular, have one or more of their fundamentals out of whack to some degree. The problem mostly arises because the player never took the time to check with someone who could show him/her how and why to do things correctly. The closest most people come to correct fundamentals is a flawed imitation of the friend who introduced them to playing pool. And that example probably had many bad habits. Continue reading

Every once in a while, for one reason or another, you approach a shot, bend over, and the next thing you know – the cue ball is moving and you don’t even know what happened. You just allowed your back brain to take over your consciousness and totally ignore your pre-shot routine. Or it could be your evil self took momentary control. There are two ways for your pre-shot routine to vanish. Continue reading
