is there anything that you like to do right before a match? Like a pre game ritual?

Almost forgot.... I like to wash my hands, and get a cup of coffee, I always put 1 part sugar, 1 part cream and 2 parts coffee, that way it is not steaming hot!

I like to focus on one mental affirmation related to what has been giving me the most problems of late. Recently I've had problems finishing runs due to missed balls, so my mental affirmation currently is "Lock it in"

Jeez Jordan, why don't you just eat a box of chocolate and drink a glass of milk. I mean thats a lot of sugar and caffeine!! You said you type fast, well I can see at least 2 reasons why. I'm wondering if your visiable when you play pool, or are you just a blur? Maby you'll be the next Lou (machine gun) Butera. Something to think about.

Jordan...why not go the "whole nine" and add some peanuts and caramel, then you would have a warm "Snickers-in-a-cup!"

NOW HOLD ON THERE YOUNG LADY!

Rod accused Jordan of "riding the C&amp;H rapid transit train"...I simply offered ideas on enhancing the "trip".

The most important thing for me is to get there early and hit some balls. I don't like to shoot cold. If I can't shoot on the table the match will be played on, I try to find a table of the same dimensions, and table covering. This will give me a feel for the speed. I have to hit a few balls for my stroke to develop. Cold, I am too stiff.
