Woman World 10-ball Championships, 31 may-1 June Philippines

Dragon Promotions and WPA will stage the first ever Woman World 10-ball Championships!

It will be held in Manila, Philippines, and there will be 6 qualifiers held around the world. 2 of them in USA, 1 in Japan and 3 in Philippines.

The qualifiers in USA will be held in Orlando, Florida the 2nd and 3rd of May, while the Tokyo, Japan qualifier will be held the 11th of May.

The three qualifiers in Philippines will be held the days before the main-event starts!

As always I am cheering on one of my favourite-players, Jasmin Ouschan, in this event.

I know a lot of people feel it's about time for her to start dominate the women's events, and I am pretty sure that she will (already is?) be the best female player in the world someday. I predict she will be for women's pool what Ralf Souquet has been and still is for men's pool. Always a threat to finish top 3 in all events he is joining, a class act and a good ambassador for our sport.

It would for sure be fun to see her take home the World Championship, but to achieve that goal she needs to bring her best game and beat all the top women in the world!

You are on my top 100 list of female poolplayers I root for.

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!
