    just want the throw a question in there , lets just say black off its spot , white high. would there ever be a time where by the position of the 2 balls you already know where to aim because you have come across it so many times in practice that you just walk into the shot without doing the imaginary bit.

    what i'm saying is you recognise the angle and just get down without going through the pre-shot routine

    There would never be a time when I didn't go through my Pre-shot-routine. Even though I would recognise that angle well, because I've played a lot of shots around the black spot area, I would still do the Pre-shot-routine.

    The difference between a 30 break player and 100+ player, is that the 100+ guy won't ever be lazy. The line will be picked (maybe a bit easier for him or her to see this because of experience), and position for the white, and where to strike the white and at what power will all be decided before the shot.

    When I say "don't overcomplicate it", what I mean is: you need to do all these things, but you don't have to be 'slow' or 'over-think' things.

    So the short answer to your question is: although I would recognise the angle of shots around the black spot to a high level, I'll still do the Pre-shot-routine each time.

    Just to add...

    You may need to take a bit more time picking the angle than John Higgins, but he's still picking it, yes. He just sees it very quickly.

    I wrote a post on SnookerZone referencing another great video from Steve - but also with reference to cueing, something which I think is a little under focused from coaches...I'm hoping Steve is going to do a video on cueing at some point!

    Read the blog post below...There's also a funny image I have when I think of straight cueing, but for me practicing it in the last few sessions has improved my cueing much more!
