    thanks for your help roy I do play this shot plain ball as i am not confident enough to use spin as i am trying my hardest to pot, i do also use th ghost ball technique, although this hasn't helped much.

    I suppose it's just a matter of practising

    Yeah it is just the P word but try holding the cue just an inch higher. Hopefully youll feel more control when playing the shot..just an idea see how you get on. Sorry too for not getting back that time about Watford when im less busy ill deffo come down buddy.

    I know this is probably the bread and butter shot for all you decent guys but i nearly always miss the black off the spot or any reds near that immediate area. I think i try too hard to get the white not to stick to the bottom cushion and mess it up.
    Ha ha everyone i watch seems to know exactly which shot to play around the black but i seem to mess it up every time unless its a simple run through

    I need serious help, although my potting is improving, my positional play is totally rubbish.

    similar to my troublesome shot, it is more of a mental thing than anything else IMO, a dead easy shot to some can be awkward to others.

    Around the black spot requires good "touch play" with little soft screws and stuns. For this I would recommend simply the line up with 1 red behind the black to start with increasing it to 2,3 and 4 over the weeks. Also try just potting the black off its spot and using the cushion to help you which is what its there for. Remember, whether you think you can or whether you think you cant your probably right so clear your mind of any negative thoughts when your in/around the pink/black area and give every pot 100% concentration.

    Pretty much any shot at the moment!

    Cheers Roy, I have tried line ups but i often miss the pot or instantly go out of position and either wreck the line or leave a tight angle then wreck the line with the next shot. I will stick to it tho, no matter how embarrasing it gets

    Thats the beauty of the Line-up you can always learn. Left hand stun off the cushion from black to red or top right hand side to check the white literally thousands. Practice them all and really enjoy learning.
