    Default Coaching with Tedisbill - a review

    On Friday I had a 2 hour coaching session with Tedisbill in the West Midlands. It was really useful and from watching me play he identified that my problem wasn't my cue action or my potting ability but rather my decision making. I was getting down and just playing shots rather than thinking 3 shots ahead. He offers advice that is specific to your game. I started off playing the line up and he quickly identified my faults and then I played a few practice frames where he mainly helped me with shot selection. Like he said the problem many players of my standard have is that we choose the wrong shot to play and sometimes don't have a plan.

    It was inspiring to hear that he thinks I can make a 50 break in the next 6 months with practice. I think he has a good perspective as he went from being a 36 break player to someone who has made lots of centuries so I think that learning process he went through helps with his coaching. My first aim is a 50 break in the next 6 months, so by mid to late August. I'm going to book another session for the end of March.

    I'd definitely recommend Steve as a coach for anyone looking to improve their game. He gives you great advice that is very useful.

    Yh, Steve, I hope he doesn't mind me mentioning his name. Thanks, yh I'm confident I can make one by mid to late August, I've just got to keep on practising and stay healthy off the table.

    Good to hear that it went well James. Having met up and played Steve myself he's a really good player and a great guy. Definitely make a good coach. Sure if you have few more sessions with him you will get that 50.

    James, I am with you on that. I am at the moment trying to be 50 break standard, at least one per session. Shot selection is the key area I agree all needed to improve.
    Good luck with your target. Hope we will get there after half year or even better.

    More on point, Mark... How would you feel about a colossal pasting one day this week? Half term and all that, I might be able to get over

    If you can make it over I'd be up for doing a bit of fielding. I'll give you a message and arrange something.
