    Wrong English

    Hello ,There's times when i use the wrong English and it cause me to lose games or put me in difficult shots.Can somebody explain to me when do i use bottom right/bottom left and top right/top left. There's times when i win games with the basic shots. But when i play more talented/advance players they understand which English to use to put themselves in a better position.

    Explaining English to someone is possible, but much better learned first hand. Even a series of actual examples would be better, books too. From a short post, I simply could not explain properly. I wouldn't want to confuse you more with concepts and words you aren't familiar with. Best I can do is spend a half hour with you, for free. If you like what I have to say, we can work out a more formal yet low cost, lesson arrangement.

    I do recommend you go get that lesson with Dave. He'll be able to get you clear on how it all works.

    Ironically though, I'd wager you're missing shots and losing games more BECAUSE you're using sidespin. Once Dave helps you understand the issues of sidespin, you'll use it far less.

    Bottom line is the only time the cueball goes where your stick is pointed is when you hit the vertical axis (absolute vertical center) of the ball. If you hit even a millimeter of sidespin, that ball is not going straight. Using sidespin is art. It takes fine judgement, understanding of the physics, and lots of experience. Yes, there are times when sidespin is necessary, but better players spin the ball LESS.

    And if you're pleased with Dave's free lesson, pay him anyway. He has spent a lot of time, money, and effort to get to where he can really help you.
