Billiards Made Better
There is no doubt that watching people play billiards is far less exciting than playing the game itself.
Ofcourse, then there is the option of socializing - you visit your local pub and make a lot of new mates. There is nothing satisfying than getting tips from a new bloke whom you have met at the pub and who happens to be a pro.
They say that the most important thing in playing pool is your breathing. Although, I am not in a position to substantiate this, I guess you have to take my word against yours, and use it to perhaps elevate your game to a greater level of excellence.
Although most people give little thought to their breathing as it is relatively an automatic response, something more of a survival instinct. Despite us ignoring the function of breathing, it will still be there, without our knowing. However, it is said that if we are able to control this function, we could achieve extraordinary things. That is to say, if we practice breathing in different ways, we can in a way control our brain, body and emotions. Whew! so much for breathing. Perhaps it would be useful in "pocket billiards" (pardon the comment)
Anyway, try it, experience it and let me know about it !
Hence, once you know your objective, control your breathing and try implementing the stroke with patience. I am certain you can develop it.
