    I would say 'TEMPERAMENT'- Not to panic either in front or behind.

    Not using Dominant Eye to Cue; have good rotation of the cue and use the Rest differently

    Then you'll be Numero Uno for another 12 months, without picking up a Cue.

    Just be Mr. B.S. and you will believe you are the best, but who cares if you really are.

    I think that players who can fall into the zone no matter where they are or who they are playing have a great advantage over the field. OCD players do great in there basements, Great players perform when itss needed. Like a switch. just a tought.
    I try hard, play hard and dont always succeed, at first.!!!!

    You can have all the ability, all the determination and practice imaginable... but if you can't hold your nerve when the pressure is really on - time and time again - then you will never be "great". Something you can't really teach.

    To me when you go down the club the difference between a good club player and a great club player is how they hit the cueball. You can hear it when someone hits the ball well as it makes a nice clicking sound when the cueball hits the red.

    At the pro level I agree with bolty in that it is how they hold their nerve when the pressure is on.

    technique aside it seems to be someone who is up for a fight, with a flare for the game. then its all up hill showing patience, practice, and dedication.
    iv come across many players who've had ether or, the fight and ability but not the dedication and visa versa. waist of time always in the club but not entering tournaments, or laying down when on the battle field.
