I've something to ask you all out there about something which I haven't seen covered very much in terms of informational material (be it literature/video); and it's about the mental side of the game for snooker.
It seems to be covered in afew books and the sort for 9-ball, but it seems to be near non-existant for snooker (unless I'm just not looking hard enough =P)
My question is rather about your own experience(s). Be it mid-frame or halfway through a race; How do you deal with the mental aspect of the game? Does it effect you much? How do you cope or pull through when you're in a rut? Any techniques/tips you'd like to share?
I ask this as I sometimes tend to get myself stuck in a downward spiral after a frame or two of poor cueing and shot planning. Once I start talking to myself or the balls/table, I know I'm done for. haha
