I’ve played the game of pool for 36 years. I’ve played 3 cushion billiards for about 10 years. I was on the billiard club in college. I won some tournaments and have played countless cash games. I had a coach for 2 semesters in college, who learned from a pro. She taught me the most about the game. I’ve read a handful of books on the subject and spent many hours practicing and competing.
About 5 years ago I started giving lessons. I’ve taught men, women, teens and groups. In about 3 shots, I can evaluate where a person’s skills are and immediately focus on where they need to improve. I’m all about quantitative results and I set up exercises to measure progress. I emphasize competition, study outside of the lesson and learning to shoot with both hands.
Tips & Shaft Conditioning
My old cue repair guy worked 2 ways: you go to him or he gets your stuff from the pool hall and drops it off when done. That got to be a time-consuming inconvenience so I decided to do it myself. I did tips for my cues and folks at the pool hall by hand for 3 years and refined my technique.
I recently mechanized and started my partnership with Quality Pool Table Movers. Oftentimes while work is done on the table, I do the client’s tips. Even if Quality’s not doing a job with you, I’ll travel to you and do the work out of my vehicle. It takes approximately 15 minutes for a tip and 10 minutes to condition a shaft. It’s a hassle-free experience and your cues don’t leave the premises. I NEVER use slip or screw on tips. Mine are 100% pressed leather, glued on, shaped and polished to last and play beautifully!
