And if you dont think that way you have to practice and learn. Thats why you can learn by watching and practicing and asking quistions. Figure out the best and correct shot and the more you do it the easier it will be to learn. ITs not about how fast or slow you play. Its about what your plane is and why you are shooting the shot you are shooting. Have a plan and have it figured out what you are going to do. Not just one shot but the whole thery behind the shoot. Dont just say thats safe. Because everyone does that. Thats not good enough and that can be a big mistake. Have a plan and figure it out before you shoot. And I keep putting in their you have to no why you did what you did. I made it clear a few weeks ago. When you are winning you have to train yourself to give all you have to finish off your opponent dont let himbreath. Sufficate him. Go for the kill. No more chances and no more mistakes. Finish him off you want to finish the session off with giving it all you got. And if you gave 100% and lost its ok you gave it all you had. And Memorize this. Whether you win or loose take it the same way. Dont be a real happy winner and then when you lose you will be a very sore looser. You do your best weather you win or lose. Dont have big mood swings. Be nutral. And show some class people like players better that have control instead of being a sour looser. And most of it is all a show anyway. Be a control winner or looser. Be huble and gracious. Being very happy and beong very sad is not the way you want to go. And its the same thing betting sports horses or other games. You need to control yourself. Just like you are going to conrtol the game of one pocket. ITs all about you. You can shoe clas or be a little baby or spoiled little brat. And you will see it very clear with people. If you gave 100% and lost you mave nothing to feel bad about. Its all we can humanly do. BUt if you didnt give 100% then you no you need to learn how to give 100% in every game or match. And you will no if you gave 100%. Winning is a hard load on your shoulder but loosing is easy. And you have to learn how to be a winner. Her is a Quistion for everyone. WHO THOUGHT YOU TO BE A WINNER. Nobody. So you see these are all things we have to learn. Everyone wants to be a winner. But not to meny people want to do the work that comes with being a winner.
PART 4 Stick and stay and make it pay. Winning should not change your standared of living. Your standared of living should not depend on you winning or loosing. Because you should be living your life the way you want to weather you win or loose. And if you win big money lock it up and let it work for you and when the time comes and you need it you will have it. And by the time you are 60 years old you will have enough money to live comftrable and enjoy your golden years. But their too it goes back to what did you do with youre money when you made scores or had moey to lock up and let it earn for you in a interest baring account when you were younger. Everything goes back to the beginning were we made the mistakes. If you make a winning game you dont need to worry about loosing. You have to learn the whole pacage. Not just playing correctly. Everything you do is what makes you a winner. Even the things and choices you make in life. Its about making correct joices. Why do you need to get pmpet up unless you made a bad game or spent your money foolishly. And you mite go through your vwholt life gitting pumpt up. If you have done the wright thing with your money you will be ok. And you will not live in a cardboard box. If you have done it correctly from the start. And its never to late to start doing things correctly. Your moey will be their for you if you took care of it. and didnt waiste it and spend it foolishly. Shoe your money respect And you will have it when you need it. Everyone is a great spender. We no you are a champion at spending. BUt how meny champions are out their in SAVING. Not to meny. We all spent our money on bad habits and foolishly. Because we didnt no and we never realy learned. I no I never took a course on saying moey. And what to do to have it earn for me. I never learned. So why would I no. And some people never learn and never even think about it. But do the correct thjing with your money and you will be in great shape when you get older.We need to correct our mistakes in one pool so we can improve our game and not repeating the same mistakes over and over and not changing and learning. I have given you some of the things you need to learn. And I have woken you up to new IDEAS that should help you to change and think correctly. And my joy and happines will come from you learning. And their is a lot to learn. Jus put your mind to it and THINK and LEARN. Reach your goals. And you will feel great about your game and yourself. Enjoy your learning experience. Make it fun and enjoyment. Dont make it stress and strain. WEll I hope you are learning?

Practice shooting every shot and move and see what you did to trapyourself on the shot you have to memorize the important things you learn in each game. You can even reflect back at the end of the day and think about all the things you did and learned and in a month you will have put a lot of information into your computor. Your mind. Start from the First shot to the end of the game. And learn were the balls go on the breack and why. And we all breack the balls basicly the same way.
Practice shoots that will improve your mind to thinking correctly. Learn everything you can and how to IMPROVE what you learned. Practice yopur whole shoot and what you want your shoot to accomplish. Nevever ever shoot a shot unless you no WHY you are shooting that shot and what you are looking to accomplish.

I have toght Larry Schwartz a lot of great and important information on all pool games. And he is the best teacher and the most qualified pool teacher in Chicago. MR. Larry Scwartz Mr Larry Schwartz he desirves the recignition and he is a clasy guy. And he is great at giving pool lessions if someone is looking for a great teacher. I dont no if he is avalable but I am sure someone can get ahold of him . Even Phil Welch can get ahold of him. I have his number but I cant give out someones phone number. But if someone wants some pool lessions he does not charge a lot. And its great for people who live in chicago. I charge a thousand dollares a houer and I no thats out of the reach for 99% of the people. But I am giving you all this information FREE. And i will keep helping everyone tell. Its time t hang it up. And I will not charge anyone for any quistions. And I no I could have opened up a sight and charged to answer peoples quistions and how to play correct one pocket mistake free. BUt Larry Schwartz is very sociable and a lot of people like him. And he will give you a great lession. And he is honest and sincere when he gives lessions. And I am AB And I approve this message.

PS Artie is not into "fun". It'll be interesting to get his take on it.
My reply would be whoever gits the weaker player gets spotted 8 to 7 and I no the answer but I want to her your reply. I am trying to get everyone to think. Because matching up is a lot of different opinons and how it should be. But I am trying to get people to think more and learn more and that is very important for their game. But if I played a partner game with Buddy Hall of Efrin as my partner I would do the traping and moving and I would have them doing the banking and shooting. The weaker player should move and the stronger player should SHOOT. THen you will have the best of the spot if you can do that. Because in reality you shouldnt be gitting sppoted in a partner game.

I have rote 4 parts to quistions and I think you can learn a lot and everything is above board. And I have learned and that is what I did with my game. And if you learn it you will have learned a lot and you can use it to win and take your game to a higher levele.

Oftentimes I'll miss the bank and not get safe besides!!

The key for me is to stay with the shots that I have the highest percentage of executing best. I think a lot of us average players take a whirl at some of the delicatessen shots we see the top players accomplish-- and we mess up!!

Doc
Shooting a long shot and playing position behind a ball is hard to do and why are you shooting a log bank and gitting position. And what will the resulte be if you dont make the shot or you dont get the cusball correct. And you leave your opponent a shot were he can run 8 and out. Or you make the bank and trap yourself by not getting the cusball correctly. My answer is shoot shoots that you can handle and control. Remember I said you need to have control of your shot. Or shoot a different shot. And the score playes a big part weather you shoot the shot or not. And figure out how maney balls you can make and what the cosiqunce is if you miss the shot. All these quistions have to be answered before you shot. You cannot get the correct answer if you dont give all the details. Even the computor you have to have all the information to get a correct answer. You need to shoot shots that yopu can execute. I said it earlier a weeker player cannot shoot the shots that Champions shoot. Because you do not have their skill or their shooting ability. AND YOU HAVE TO SHOOT SHOTS ACCORDING TO YOUR ABILITY. THats why shooting the same shoot the champions shoot is NOT the correct shot for you to shoot. And you have to learn what is the correct shot according to your ability. So you see its not the same shot for every player. Its a lot according to your shooting ability. We are not Efrin and we do not have his executing skills. If we had his skill why would he spot us 8 to 5? If the player is the smartest and the most talanted and the most skillfull. Well nobody should be able to beat him. Unless the get very lucky and play way over their head. Its not a mystery. It skill and braines.

Default My 1st Question to Artie

Hi Artie ! Its good to see you posting on here and thank you for contributing your knowledge of the game to all of us !!

Well ve learned the game from a very good mutual friend we have by the name of Tony who use to work at Bensingers in chicago. He started to get into the thought process that he learned from you and i was wondering if you could help break it down. I guess this isnt really a question but more of your thoughts on this concept.

Obviously I am aware of your "suffocation" of your opponents when they played you. what was explained to me is that you knew what your opponet HAD TO DO innings before. You knew that if you put him in a position .. that he HAD NO CHOICE but to shoot the shot you wanted him to shoot.

Can you elaborate on this topic a little more ?

I have also observed my opponent shooting what I sure thought was the wrong shot, yet they execute it and it ends up costing me. These two situations illustrate results that make it difficult for me to learn the "right shot".

Can you give us any advice on how to better observe our own game, so as to learn to avoid mistakes? What should we be looking for?
You might be executing poorly because you havant learned to do it correctly yet. So work extra hard and practice what you need to learn. And learn to execute correctly. Till you can do it correctly yourself. And ask yoursefy why you are not doing it correctly. You need to find that answer and correct it to were you can ececute the shot. If your opponent shoots a shot that you might think it is the wrong shot might be the correct shoot. You have to answer the quistion yourself. ANd then shoot the shoot 10 or 20 times and see what the resulte will be when you shoot that shoot over and over till you find the answer. Or maybe he is more skillfull at shooting that shot then you are. BUt work with the shot and ALWAYS keep learning tell you find the answer. Or have 2 or 3 champions shoot it and explaine it to you. And figure out why you think its the wrong shot.
