  • How i play snooker - Joe Davis

    Since Ronnie mentioned this book prices for this old book have gone up extremely, so since i can't afford to get a copy at those prices i wonder if anyone has done the effort of scanning it and make a pdf version of it?

    You can buy this old book on Ebay that has around 20 pages from Joe Davis on the fundamentals of snooker which I believe is taken from his book, including original black and white photos of the man himself showing the stance and bridge etc. A great little book with chapters from Clive Everton and Ray Reardon. A steal at ?3...

      I’ve never been a big fan of Joe Davis’ coaching methods. He was a bit inflexible imo. It was a case of do it his way or not at all. Much prefer Frank Callen’s approach who preached that everyone’s body was different so how they played snooker could be different.
      The example that I’ve always remembered is regarding the bridge arm. Joe taught that this had to be straight whilst Frank maintained that it could be slightly bent if it was more comfortable.
      Suppose it’s difficult to argue with Joe given that he was a multi, multi, multi World Champion. Have to question what the opposition was like in those days though.

        It's got to be a lot easier to be world champ, when you get to hand pick who you play.
        This is how you play darts ,MVG two nines in the same match!
