Hey, it's always been my dream to hustle drunk people, but I'm no good at pool! Like.. I see all these guys that are really good at it, and I just have no idea how to get that good, lol.

I just learn the formula, apply it to a key, and use said notes on fretboard. Why? Cuz I'm not a pussy.

Watch some, and learn Geometry/physics.

Dont follow through, except for shots where it is necessary to follow through.
...In my opinion.

It's very easy to cheat. But be sure to keep a pokerface and not look guilty.

Or you could just practice to become better than average and then hustle some drunks.
People are bastards. Bastardcoated bastards with bastardfilling.

Man Just practice. I have a pool table in my house its pretty bomb.
Fuck rights, I believe in something... even a guy like Merlin you know?

Quote by sashki
Learning geometry is one thing. Getting the ball to go where you wanted it to is another. That takes practice.

This. But to get proper techniques to practice, google them. The first thing I'd look up is "english" as I've heard it called. Not a joke, its a technique.
#18
I think that, and I know this sounds stupid, but one of the best ways to learn the geometry aspect and where exactly to hit the ball for the pocket you're trying to land, is to play a good online pool game.

Watch the pros play, and they REALLY helped me with my sense of strategy.

Also, practice! Me and my friend have been get good at pool, too. We started playing pool about 3 weeks ago and we SUCKED. We'd miscue like every other shot. But we've both been practicing a lot. Like, we play twice a week, sometimes for 3 hours, and we've both gotten alright. Not amazing, but alright. Although I've gotten better than him.

First: Bomb is in no way an adjective.

Second: Practice. Also, learn how angles work.

Surely there's easier ways to hustle drunk people?

But if your dead set on pool, just look up some tutorial vids and play it as often as you can.

I took some lessons from a friend of my dad's who competed. Didn't spend quite enough time at it to get good, but I learned proper technique and how to set myself up using english. If I had my own pool table I could become quite good at it. Just get someone who is really good to teach you.
We're only strays.

Keep playing and learn your angles, I mean when your shooting etc.
