There are five factors that help predict who will win the majority of games.
- The player who knows when to play offensively, and when to play defensively.
- The player who knows how to use cushions, angles, and spins to manage table positions.

- The player who is self-disciplined and is not distracted by others.
Success is a consequence of possessing these abilities.
