How To Pool is a game that can be played like a pro.

You need a good pool cue, a fluid stroke and a precise aim to play pool like a pro.The basic toolkit that you need to become a better billiards player can be found in this article.

Step 1: Look at your hand position.

With your palm facing upward, hold the thick end of the cue in your dominant hand.The cue balances evenly on the wrap.Go behind that spot with your cue.Make a circle with your non-dominant hand.Take the cue out of the circle and put it on the top of your middle finger.To create a tripod-like support, spread out your ring, middle finger and pinky tips.The ridge of your hand should be on the table.Lift the other side of your hand.

Step 2: Take the proper stance.

The non-dominant hand should be placed in front of the foot that is on the other side.The other foot should be behind the front foot.To avoid interfering with the shot, turn your body away from the table.Don’t be too close to the table.You want to lean into the shots for more control.The cue stick should be under your chin during a stroke.If you compare the form of a pool player with a novice, the professional player will always keep their head down, known as being down on the ball, with the cue directly below his or her chin.

Step 3: As if you’re brushing the chalk on with a paintbrush, chalk the cue tip before every shot.

The chalk should not be twisted on top of the cue.

Step 4: If you want maximum control, hold your cue parallel to the table.

Step 5: As you approach the ball, accelerate slowly.

Imagine if you moved your arm through the water in a swimming pool instead of hitting the ball with a quick strike.A longer stroke gives the ball more strength.

Step 6: Follow-through should be straight and relaxed.

The cue almost hit the table ahead of the ball’s starting position.The tip should hit the ball before your cue slows down.

Step 7: Don’t go up after the shot.

You can analyze the angle of the ball and the direction of every other ball with this position.It makes sure that you don’t cause the shot to deviate by introducing a jumpy motion.

Step 8: Don’t hit balls until it feels comfortable.

Step 9: You want the invisible ball to sink into the pocket.

Step 10: Your cue should be above the target.

If you angle the cue, it will create a parallel line from right above the ball to the target.

Step 11: Back your cue and place the tip on the table where the invisible ball would be next to the real ball.

When you lined up the ball and the pocket, keep the angle that you made.

Step 12: The cue tip should be on the table.

Pull the rest of the cue until it is over the white ball.You have the angle at which you need to hit the white ball to sink the other ball.

Step 13: You just calculated the angle, so set your shot up at it.

Make contact with the other ball by striking the center of the white ball.

Step 14: When you become ambidextrous, start playing with your non-dominant hand all the time.

It will make you less likely to win the current game.If you play with your non-dominant hand all the time, you will gain more skill for awkward shots if you use your dominant hand.If you do everything with your non-dominant hand, you will gain skill for pool more quickly than if you just play pool and use your dominant hand.

Step 15: The cue has a wrap or butt.

If you have small hands, choose a smaller wrap.Finding a wrap that feels good in your hands is the most important point.If you sweat, choose a cue wrapped in Irish linen.You can choose a cue with no wrap or a leather wrap.

Step 16: The shaft should be checked.

The diameter of most shafts is 12mm to 13mm.Smaller shafts can make the bridge position more comfortable for people with smaller hands.

Step 17: The pro taper is measured.

The diameter of the shaft is maintained for 10 to 15 years.The shorter the taper, the harder it is to hit.

Step 18: Know the cue weight.

The average weight for players is between 19 and 20 ounces.

Step 19: Check cue length.

You can order different lengths of cues.

Step 20: Pick a cue tip.

The tips are usually rated medium to hard.A good tip will give you better control of the ball.

Step 21: No parts are loose.

Your ability to strike the ball well will be hampered by loose parts.
