yep its all one giant package. any parts of it you dont do well or miss because you didnt know about it costs you something everytime. and over the course of a long match it adds up to win or loss.

Only one for all pool. Stake yourself when you got the nuts and run to backers when you don't.

1. One pocket is about mistakes. Limit your mistakes and you usually win.

2. Your shot depends upon the score. Play the score.

3. Stay focused. One pocket is as much mental as physical.

4. Cue ball position is critical in one pocket; See #1.

5. Check the stack for wired combinations first; both to your hole and his.

6. Distance is the cousin of safe. When in doubt, leave them long.

7. On Pocket size: Pick a table you are comfortable running balls on.

8. A man who is a weak banker cannot play one pocket.

9. Be a student of the game. Learn by watching better players.

10. One pocket is the greatest game, but it is still a game. Have fun.

I'm so confused......I been studying WWYD's forever......where there's three dozen offensive shots for every situation and nobody plays safe............ever.

I think it must be true......afterall.
