    Hi there Steve.

    I have just logged onto the site. I am looking for beyond what I have picked up from Barry Stark. What distance is ideal if the cue is on the correct line, should your hips be from the cue.

    Hi Steve

    I just wondered if you had any experience with the yips or cueitis via coaching or otherwise? I see a lot of coaches mentioning technique and not too much about the mental side.

    Hi there.

    I certainly have a few things I would try with a player that had the yips. There is a guy that plays in my club that has them and I have helped him quite a bit.

    I think the problem is, because it's such a complex psychological issue, I really think you'd need to actually spend time with a person face to face and have a chat about things. I don't think there is one method that can work for all players. You'd need to find out specifically what is bothering a player, and then work out a plan to get them to hit the ball with freedom.

    Sorry I can't be more help than that. I just think because it's such a personal thing, what would work for one person, wouldn't necessarily help another at all.

    Hi Steve,

    Great initiative.

    I play snooker for some years now. Participating in the local competition.
    What I'm still struggling with....finding centre ball.
    Also how to grip the cue properly....in most cases I think i do a decent job.
    However in stressfull situations....during matchplay or powershots I often totally mess up things.
    Any advice in that area is more then welcome.

    Makes sense Steve, thanks for taking the time to reply.

    Hi Steve,
    Could you do a video on standard two cushion safety from a pack of reds back to baulk? Ie how you find the angle and judge pace etc as itís from a distance. Always seem to hit thick or thin yet Iím a regular century break player.
    Cheers and keep up the good work

    Yes, I will note that video down to make as well!

    I have a few good suggestions now (and yours is another), so I'll make sure I get around to it.
