For the last 3 weeks I have been training on the most common shots that come up normally in a game. I shot cut shots & rail shots from every angle I could come up with. Long shots that were a true indicator of a correct stroke. It was hard work! I found out where your eyes tell you to hit the object ball sometimes lie & decieve you. I am in no way a Top Stick but, I found out that practice can improve your game! I ran my first & probebly only rack of 9 ball yesterday.

Hmmm, "practice", that is an interesting concept. I'll have to try it some day. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif

The best training iz hitting a meezle ball up n down table at different pace and skrew etc uzing accurate chalkmarks for qball pozzys and for targets.
Then progress to long straight pots with top or skrew.

Yes pool is really about truly mastering the 20 or so shot types that come up over and over again. This realization is more of a milestone than you probably think at this point; you are on the right track. Byrnes (sp) practice game for example is one of the most valuable training tools ever conceived.
