#011 Cue School: Adjusting and Trusting Your Technique
Rob Reed conducts a one-to-one coaching session with his student Jack who has been playing for many years getting breaks of up to 80 but he has never been able to crack that century break on the snooker table. Recently, before Jack came to see Rob, he dedicated himself to improve his cue action and learning technique; but, like many players, he had tweaked part of his technique which ended up working against the rest of his game. The result was a massive drop in consistent breaks and even failing to pot balls he could pot before.
In this episode Rob shows how he assesses technique and what he does to tweak it for the desired improvements. He illustrates how different techniques can impact player’s shots. He points out that it is the basics, even for top level snooker players, that help improve technique. Looking for those small tweaks can have a massive impact on your game. He works with Jack to properly correct his technique with a focus on consistency and confidence.
