Why Is Pool Practice Boring? How Can It Be Changed?

By Dominic Esposito aka The Drill Instructor with Matt Sherman of About.com

Do you agree with the formula: Pocket Billiards + Practice = Boredom? You can be honest.

Okay, then answer this, fellow pool shooter. How do you know for certain if your skills are improving overall? What if I can show you a way to make practice fun, even as you see yourself progressing toward increasing your average? I can. Want to know how? It's through the time-tested method of training drills--fun drills, all, but they need to be done. I turned pro at a young age and used these drills and ones like them to get there.

Do you want to play better or not? I have the rudiments that will push you past the plateaus that seem to hold you back. Now stop your whining and let's get to it, soldier! When The Drill Instructor starts his Jody calls you say "Sir, yes sir!" Now let's crack those racks!

Nothing increases your personal playing skills like solid practice drills. They develop your utmost in focused concentration, isolate effective shot making and establish your pace for technique and execution. Your overall player skill level will be improved through practicing my professional drills like those listed at this site.
