We all know the classic chestnut: some dude sporting a leather jacket storms into a bar and interrupts a game of billiards. No one thinks much of him until he takes one stroke of the pool cue and somehow sinks three balls in one play.
Wake up for a second, would ya?
Billiards is a game of skill and patience – it’s not the Wild West – and unless you put in the time and effort to practice you might as well quit while you’re ahead. However, if you are looking for a way to improve your game and you get your internet through places like www.satellitestarinternet.com/ then there is a wealth of information. Luckily, we have a few tips on the basics.
Let’s talk about aim.
Aim is important. It’s the fundamental of the game.
Never take a shot without spending some time to aim. Doesn’t matter if you are in a rush or your opponent has lost patience, if you want to win you need to carefully line up that shot. Also wouldn’t hurt to have some knowledge in geometry. Remember all that math you though you would never need? Well, now you do.
Knowing your basic geometry can help you line up those shots perfectly.
And if all else fails, take to the computer. There are plenty of free, online pool games that can help you master the basics of aim and trajectory.
