    all top players started with a coach so he will teach them to aim under there dominant eye ...

    We all sight differently, could be 10% left/90% right, 20%left/80%right, 50/50. Both eyes are required to determine distance. So even thou a player is right eye dominant he can still cue down the middle of his chin, also your stance can affect this as well, because a boxer (side-on) stance is different to a square on stance. I would suggest you create the Steve davis sighting tool from old yellow pages/magazines so you can see exactly where your cue should be.

    Hardly any pro players started with a coach.
    Many go to one as their game drops as they get older

    Where do people get such wrong ideas? Dominant eye theory as most people understand it is not correct because every person sees aiming and especially sighting down the cue differently. It's something most players develop naturally until some 'coach' tries to get them to conform to their dominant eye and screws them up forecer.

    I can only think of Ding and Ali Carter and even their heads are very slightly turned to the right with cue centre chin so not exactly 50/50.

    I mentioned you and a post, without quoting as it would have spoiled the delusion\fun, lol.

    You posted elsewhere about cueing under inner eye or under chin as easier on the back, and the eyes adjust, or something very similar?

    exactly, ding and carter are slightly left eye dominant. The only ones I can think of that appear centre off top of my head are Yupeng, Wilson, Davis, Williams, Holt, but even they all appear to turn head slightly.

    I've asked Dings old coach but you can also clearly see it lol. Selby is obviously cueing under his left eye as well....google search images.
