9781625050076: Advanced Cue Ball Control Self-Testing Program: Break-through reality checks for dedicated players

After I wrote the popular "Cue Ball Control Cheat Sheets" book, a number of friends (serious players each and every one) contacted me about doing an advanced version - starting with tougher shots. These are players who are not interested in the majority of pool books and videos. For beginners and intermediate players, there are a lot of excellent instructional books and videos available. But, they were past that.

For advanced players ("A" rated and above), there isn't much material worth studying. My friends really wanted something that was a significant challenge to their shooting and playing skills. This is that book. All layouts went through a testing period. At first, the successful cue ball speed and spin was going to be provided. This was voted down - the consensus was, any solid shooter should be able to figure out how to play the shot and successfully shoot it.

Warning - there are some near impossible setups. At least three of them were so tough that only two of the testing shooters could consistently make both balls.

So this is the challenge to all pool players - if you think you are an "A" or better player - you need to get this book and shoot these shots. You will need excellent pocketing skills with strong cue ball positioning abilities.

For those shooters who are striving to reach that level of the game, this book is very useful. These layouts can help confirm that your skills are improving. Every couple of weeks, setup and shoot some of these shots. In between these scheduled self-testing periods, use the Cue Ball Control Cheat Sheets book to improve your cue ball management self-confidence. You will see recognizable improvements.

Study this material in two steps. In the comfort of your favorite easy-chair, review each table layout and thoughtfully consider your options. How would you play the shot? What would be the minimum speed and spin to make the shot work? Are there multiple ways to make the shot work? In the printed book, use a pencil to draw your patterns. On an eReader, use the "notes" feature to enter your ideas.

This book will help you get past the "fooling around" stage of your playing career and help you get serious about becoming a competitive player.

Product Description:

This book is for the strong intermediate and advanced players. The idea is simple. Pocket the 1 ball and then the 2 ball. Many layouts will challenge an advanced player. When you first get this book, sit down in your favorite chair and analyze each table layout. Rate each one according to your current abilities. Here is some guidance on rating these shots based on your current skills: o 4 level - Easy shots, well within your current skills. (Success rate: 4 or 5 out of 5 attempts.) o 3 level - Not too difficult, but also not consistent. (Success rate: 2 or 3 out of 5 attempts.) o 2 level - Pushing the edges of your skills. (Success rate: 1 or 2 out of 10 attempts.) o 1 level - Way outside of your current skills. (Success rate: 1 or 2 out of 50 attempts. - maybe) On your first few practice sessions with this book, work with the "4" level shots. You might discover a few should be "3" or even "2". As you master each table layout, change the rating accordingly. The book will immediately identify the limits of your skills. This is necessary. You may not like the differences between reality and your self-image. However, once you have a realistic understanding of your current shooting and playing skills, you will make better table decisions. If that is all this book does for you – it is well worth the price. This book is available in US (amazon.com) and Europe (*.uk, *.fr, *.de, *.es, *.it). Also see the author's Billiards Blog on the Billiard Gods web site.
