DCC - One Pocket round 2

Played against Stevie Dronkley (or something like that).

I played very good in the first game, won it 8-2, after some great moving and banking. In the next game I played just ok, but still enough to make it 2-0 in the match.

I started to feel pretty comfortable about winning the match, and tried dumb things. Lost two racks in a row, being very nervous in the last rack which I lost 8-7.

Took a deep breath before the last rack, broke the ball and got a good result after the break. Moved well from there, and put him in a trap and forced him to commit a foul, so now he was on -1, and after a few innings I had won 8 - -1 in the last rack to win the match 3-2.

Still in, undefeated, and round 3 will start tomorrow.

How I practice

Most of the time I practice by playing the Ghost in 9-ball or 10-ball. Sometimes I line up difficult shots or safeties that I have been struggling with, and the rest of the time I am normally using on the system called PAT.

I am using PAT (Playing Ability Test) to test my skills and to see progress, and it is really working great for me.

I have bought the books and DVD's on Amazon, and I recommend it to all players who wants to raise their game to another level.

PAT consists of 4 different levels, from amateurs to professionals. As a side-note, top-players such as Jasmin Ouschan and Thorsten Hohmann uses PAT on a regular basis.

The best part of PAT is that the majority of drills in the books/videos are situations that you often will face in a match. Nothing pleases me more than be in such a situation knowing that I have practiced this and fires it in with confidence.

Check out my Billiard Store and buy the books/dvd's that suits your level!
