A Couple Things That Players Do Wrong
In the game of pool, especially if you are just learning, chances are there is probably something that you are doing that is a little off. That is the nature of learning and growing, we have to weed out the bad and plant in the good. Such is the nature of any pool player at the pool table, weed out the bad and plant in the good.
In that same spirit, there are just a few things that seem to be done over and over, that if corrected would yield very favorable results, making you a better player. Most of these things are very simple misconceptions or ideas.
One thing that many beginners tend to do is to hoist the stick in the air on the draw stroke which not only will create problems for your stroke but also anyone in your vicinity when you accidently hit them in the face. Make sure to leave the stick low and watch your draw.
Some players also misunderstand how the professionals hit the ball in order to gain or secure a particular position for the following strokes. It is important to study how to anticipate the result of your strokes.
Other players sometimes refrain from trying new games that will help to keep skills sharp and imagination renewed. It vital to your pool game that you learn to try new things which could potentially help your game as well as continue to help your love for pool stay strong in slow times.
Another problem with some players is the fact that they will not invest money into buying a personal cue stick. You do not have to buy your own pool table (although that would really help), but it is important that you learn to use one particular pool cue, working with something that is consistent and you are used to is in impotent factor to consider.
One last thing that a lot of players tend to do is avoid the whole mental aspect of pool. As with any other game, there is a mental aspect of pool that will help you to become more confident as your learn to be comfortable in a game and at the pool table.
It is important to keep these things in mind as you continue to progress and learn more about the game. Again, weeding out the bad and planting in the new, creating your own little garden of skills that you can display at the pool table.
