    Absolutely. I can vouch that this works. Some guys I have played are far slower than any pro you might have seen on tv. One minute per shot, 25+ feathers, getting up on a shot, chalking again...etc. You don't want to look at that.
    What others have said is true. It is very rare to see a very good slow players. They always seem to have severe limitations in their game.

    it is not relevant - your speed is you at the table - when he is at the table listen to music in your head and relax.
    ADR hit the nail on the head for me... Just do what you want to do when you're at the table, nothing else should really matter.

    When I come up against someone (normally some no hoper thinking they'll frustrate me) playing slow or refusing pots I play a little game where I don't go for anything at all for a few minutes... Even if they're over the hole, just keep playing immaculate safeties for as long as I can.

    They always lose their rag and revert to type, smashing balls everywhere and twitching like a Dog in a sausage factory.

    You got to hold on to your nerves . I have seen worse players in club i play. There was a certain player who took handicap from me and purposely wasted time by ordering food, chatting on cell phone and taking time while taking a shot. I used to loose very badly against him because of that. You too can take time before playing a shot , it sometimes help during long potting.

    If it's a match and you share the reffing and it's your ref, you can call foul for unsportsmanlike if a player is persistently wasting time, unless the rules have changed? I did that once in a league match, it was obvious, I warned the player once, their captain second and then called foul and 7 away, reminded them the ref was always right when questioned and that they could complain to the league and that I would keep doing it unless he sped up - he did - trouble is you need a ref to do it for you

    If it's not in a match and it's just a player down the club, don't waste your time or money with them, simples, blackball them so to speak, they'll either learn or go away
