(AWAP) The Art of War v. The Art of Pool - An Introduction & Instructions

(About the author)

AWAP-new-125

This post begins a new category of information for all cue sports players. If your sport is table billiards (pool, snooker, carom), this series of posts will provide very useful information to improve your game winning percentage.

The book is a strategic and tactical guide to how to use Sun Tzu's war strategies and tactics on the battlefield of the pool table. It includes techniques to analyze opponents, attack their weaknesses and undermine their strengths.

Sometimes one of these posts will get a "I know that." or "So what?" reaction in your head. No worries. Move on with your life. Other posts will get the “Wow!! That REALLY makes sense!. I can USE this” response
(your reaction may differ - more or less) 

When you get this "Eureka" reaction to an improved understanding -- savor the pleasure of your new-found awareness. The discovery will benefit you a lifetime.

Instructions

Read the first part of the post (from the "Art of War" by Sun Tzu). Then read the second part which explains how the ideas in the first part can be used in competition. This information can be integrated into the strategies and tactics used on the table and against your opponent.
