In ramblings #3, John talks about a particularly good performance in a 6 Pocket event, and what he thinks were the main things that contributed to his elevated level of play.
I had a conversation today at the pool hall with a friend about my stroke. He’d been watching me practice for a few minutes and then asked me why I didn’t pause before I took my final stroke at the ball. I explained my logic and we talked for a few minutes. Neither of us was taking the position that we were right, we were just talking about the pros and cons of several different approaches, as we understood them.
