Youtube: Ralf Souquet vs Efren Reyes

Sometimes it is better to not practice pool yourself, and just sit back and relax a good match between two of the best players in the world.

You can learn far more by studying their moves, patterns, shot-routine etc., in the 1 hour this match last, than practicing yourself for 1 hour. Every now and then it is highly recommended to watch a match, and try to copy some of the things the pros do next time you enter the table.

I haven't watched this match yet, but will start at it right now. I expect it to be a good one. It's from the World Pool Masters 2006, held in the Netherlands, between Efren Reyes and Ralf Souquet.

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!
