You Guys are spot on !, I’am 65 and been in the pool halls a long time, In the 60′s you had to hide the fact that you wanted to miss a shot and put the cue ball in a spot hard to win from. It took me a little time to adjust my game but I am enjoying it more. I dont want to be the best player in the room, I want to be the player in a tournament that nobody wants to play. You are putting all the pressure on the other guy to perform. The articles are great , keep these nuggets coming . John
