What to practise, week 2, January 09

It's getting closer to the Derby City Classic, the worlds biggest one-pocket event, and I will practise some one-pocket the following weeks.

This is a drill that I saw on onepocket.org, and I will give it a try. If you have any other one-pocket related drills, please let me know!

The rules are to pocket as many balls possible in the upper left corner, starting with ball in hand behind the headstring. Don't bump into other balls while playing!

Har klart 11 to ganger.

Funnet ut at å starte med 1-2-3, deretter ta to av kulene 4-5-6 for så å spille legg til 10-11-12 er greit. Da har du en "reserve"-kule på kortvantet som du kan spille til etter 10-11-12 hvis du ikke får riktig posisjon til å spille til 7-8-9.

Skal nok klare den snart ;)

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!
