    Good stuff Stevie!

    I think trying to pick a shot where you can deliver the cue properly and with authority is very important. Sometimes we pick a shot that's not really on, and that's when we tend to decelerate a little bit.

    Thanks for sharing this video. I know the grip mustn’t be tight but still hold it that way subconsciously on the backswing and delivery until I realise and loosen it but not always. This video will help make it a routine.
    Looking for perfection is the only way to motivate yourself.

    Hello sir,
    I got a doubt.. I am a beginner and capable of 20 break.. I used to play regularly but suddenly on someday when I hold the cue I get an awkward feeling by gripping itself I am not gonna play shots comfortably and I end up playing bad with a lot of miscue during screw shots.. Is that common to all players?
    Another doubt is, my cue action is a little bit odd.. When I am cueing my hand is not straight behind my head it comes a lot outside but still I play shots properly but when I try to adjust my hand to fit straight back to my head I feel a lot uncomfortable.. Is this a major problem, should I change my cue action?

    Hi. I would try and get a good conventional setup. Because you are just starting out, you might as well begin practicing while doing the correct things.

    If you can, I would film yourself and then try to see what it is that's causing you to look a bit unusual on the shot.

    Hope that helps!
