APA Dr. Cue Instruction – Dr. Cue Pool Lesson 29: Game Victory with Imaginary Position!!

www.poolplayers.com – Dr. Cue Pool Lesson 29 Game Victory with Imaginary Position – No one is immune from missing an easy 8-ball to win the game. During a game a player makes a ball and plays position a maximum 7 out of 8 shots or 87.5% of the time. On the final shot the brain registers making the ball, but not playing position. The brain short circuits, so to speak, 12.5% of the time, and does not understand why it is not playing position on the final shot. This right brain thing can be fixed by creating a mental ball for imaginary position to an easy place on the table. Shooting the 8-ball now becomes part of the normal shooting journey with a subsequent imaginary shot providing victory!

    Never thought of that. Thanks for the advice.

    Yes, that is true… and sometimes one may notice that he or she scratches the cue ball on the final 8 ball because he or she does not play imaginary position.

    it’s real rocks !

    is the best way to have the game sure and save in my opinion…

  7. projectlxix says:

    wouldn’t it also make sense to actually play defensive on the 8ball shot cue position? find a good spot to leave the cue for a more difficult shot for your opponent? So it wouldn’t even have to be imaginary. Just a thought…

  8. Hr9C0 says:

    I just pretend i won the game off break and walk off even though I didnt. It works.

  9. Hr9C0 says:

    I was thinking that. I’d rather think of safety, control power on 8 just incase u do miss.

    Hm, I’ll have to start keeping tabs on making the 8/9 ball for wins and see what happens if I don’t play imaginary position. Usually I’ll do something to the cue ball to prevent it from scratching or just stopping it, so effectively playing some kind of position w/o meaning to.

  11. yuletak says:

    I’d say that would depend on your opponent and their ball positions. For example, if the 8 ball is at the far end of the table, your opp can make routine shots, and they’ve got one or two make-able balls (in your estimation), then yeah, I’d try to hide the cue ball with the 8 or put the cue ball on or as close to a rail as I could.

  12. lakunas23 says:

    A great tip for beginners. I compete and also show to newer players that trick. It prevents you from scratching when playing carelessly and the worst thing in a tournament is to scratch on pocketing the 8 ball.
