  3. TSsun says:

    hands too small?

  4. IProphetI says:

    have accelerators running?

  5. DC1903 says:

    …and thats according to mr.cue (gunshots in background, cue hits the floor)

  6. 1111111dave says:

    It is very dangerous advice even if you are kidding, to suggest some one Super Glue there fingers together.
    If some pore bastard tr-yes it he probably will need a doctor to cut his fingers apart.

  7. apaleagues says:

    Very true.

    Hey kids! – The good Dr. Cue was kidding. Don’t use super glue on your fingers.

  8. Petrikau says:

    Yep, don’t do this at home. Only professionals can super glue their fingers.

  9. lifegiver36 says:

    ahh thanks for the warning but its a little to late. I’m off to the hospital now.

  10. PharcydePhreak says:

    these videos fuckin rock. I’m actually picking up my game. 😀

  11. hidden4est says:

    don’t let your hand fall down, very helpful, it seems to bring your hold body into line.

  12. VoxSweden says:

    I think you need bigger glasses, Dr. Cue

  13. grime909 says:

    is he kiding put super glue he stupid that may damage the skin

  14. libertatus says:

    He’s just kidding about the super-glue. At his clinics he’s part comedian as well as phenomenal technician.

  15. flyculture21 says:

    Dr. Cue your the man…Keep it up I’m actually getting alot better with your tips and instructions. You have a great deal of knowledge and you explain easilly in a universal way that reaches everyone.

  16. CadillacMatt95 says:

    Acetone will do the trick pretty easy too but still not worth all the hassle 😉

  17. ematt454 says:

    F%$K! I wish I knew it was just a joke before the tournament last night. Now every one I see thinks im “OK”

  18. Monatee says:

    So, the closed grip offers control, accuracy but does not offer height for the cue stick, in that case, a tall open bridge grip is used

  19. shaana111 says:

    Actually if you watch lesson 3 and THEN lesson 4, you will notice that in lesson 3 he says “IMAGINE – that there is a drop of superglue between your thumb and your finger” – he is just carrying that forward into lesson 4. Of course nobody would advise you to *actually* superglue your fingers together!

  20. MuskyMan111 says:

    @apaleagues Fingernail polish remover dissolves super glue

  21. lvbohemian says:

    Ok, lets see… first somebody is going to superglue their fingers together because somebody says “Pretend” your fingers are super-glued together…
    Anybody with over a double-digit IQ can comprehend the point being made…

    Lack of common-sense = Darwin Awards… Natural Attrition.

    What’s that the comedian says?

    You Can’t Fix Stupid…

    Dr. Cue is a Doctor of Billiardology, ESPN & World Masters trick shot Champion and having seen him play in person… as the saying goes is the real deal…

  22. orido01 says:

    Thanks Dr. Cue. Your advice has helped me improve my game immensely.

    No matter how much I try, I can’t seem to be able to get my closed bridge good enough to get the accuracy to justify using it over the open bridge. I hope it does improve with time.

  23. Daninater567 says:

    is that a balabushka?

  24. MsnVidio says:

    xD dålig haha

  25. Longie says:

    Haha yeah, of course he was kidding. However, if you guys tried it, you don’t need a doctor, just some nail polish remover, dunk your fingers in it and the superglue will dissolve and you’ll be unharmed (except for maybe your ego if you get busted)
