    Man I wish I had a room like that to shoot pool in. And good tips. Hope they get more advanced.

  4. RSPM says:

    Another point, try to do everything exactly the same each time you approach the table. You will develop a “memory” of muscles and thoughts. Make it a ritual.

  5. WhiteBoyAsian says:

    I understand the mental aspect of chalking up to get time to think about your shot, but does the chalk really matter in giving better grip on the cue tip in the shot?

  6. ChillinCherokee says:

    of course it does.

  11. deathgrind291 says:

    Its generally how American 8Ball and 9ball players bridge
    some snooker players use it when the cue ball is tight on a cushion/rail

  14. ThatsWhatImTalkingB says:

    chalking up is what Im talking about

  15. stavari says:

    when you want to hit the ball not in the centre but in an angle in order to spin and help you put in the next ball and you dont have chalk then the cue “slips” and the white goes sideways(like 0:37 ) but when you chalk there is grip so you hit the white… it goes strait… put it has the spin so it helps you put the other ball easily (if you spined right)
    i explained as much simplier i could…
    sorry if a made mistakes or the vocabulary doesn’t make sense but i’m not american either english..

    To Dr Cue and anyone else who posts training videos. THANK YOU for all your time and effort. Its good people like you that let poor people like me learn for free 🙂

  18. bore2008 says:

    Thank You Dr Cue I saw you quite a few years ago in Truro NS Canada. Your the best…

    Most of these videos are good, but this one is just silly.
    Here’s what I get out of this: The purpose of chalking is to give you a “time out” to think about your next shot…
    I would expect a lesson on chalking to explain HOW to chalk the stick properly, instead of just drilling the tip into the chalk cube like most people do.
