Hi people!
It has been a while since my last post but I have been so busy last month that i couldn find time (or energy) to write any post here... /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif
Well, whats new here? many tournaments were hold, most of them with me in it.. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif The results were mostly good with few disappointments, my game is getting better and better. I have been able to overcome one minor slump too which had been caused by one reoccuring error in my fundamentals (stroke hand too forward on the cue). Recently I started to play on snooker table as well to improve my level of concentration on shots. Damn its hard to play on it but its rewarding!!! I have almost eliminated stupid mistakes I sometimes did due to the lack of concetration. Also it makes my "comfort zone" on most shots quite bigger... /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
I must admit that it amazes me how an improvement in one area of my game can lead to a big improvement in whole game. i have been practicing short range position play recently and the improvement which it caused in my whole game was HUGE! I can only guess that this area may have been my "blind spot". Man, how many of those "blind spots" are still there... /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif But on the other hand I makes me think possitive about the possibilities of my further improvement. My goal is to make my game as "complete" as possible and I am working on it. I think its possible to make my game "complete" within 12 months period with only 50 areas of my game to fine-tune for next 10 years......... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Thats all people for now!
Have fun and enjoy your life!

Hey Marek,
How you hanging buddy? Funny you should mention the short butt hand, this is one of the subconsious fundament errors that creeps into my game. At the moment I have a small rubber band on the butt to remind me where the grip is on the butt. I do this so I can adjust quickly w/o interrupting the rythm of play. Keep up the good work...just remember the more you learn the less you know... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Well, I thought that the exact position of grip hand on the cue should have solved the problem. And it really did. But after few weeks I found myself having the same problem even if I checked the position of grip hand. I found out that I subconsiously put my bridge hand further away from cue ball which caused the same problem... /ccboard/images/graemlins/ooo.gif so I had to change my technique again.And it works smoothly again. /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Good to hear from you dude.

What kind of cue are you using now?

Does Jasmine Ouschan or her little brother ever come over for tournaments?

Im using 18oz cuetec midnight series cue for regular play, 18 oz cuetec strickland series cue for breaking and 18 oz cuetec snooker cue for snooker play. I just cant resist the feel of fiberglass coating.... /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif
