Are you frustrated with your pool game? Missing shots you know you can make? Losing to people you are supposed to beat?  Knowing something is wrong with your game, but not knowing how to fix it?

You have bought all the books, and watched videos for hours. You might even have taken a lesson from a local pro, yet you still don’t feel comfortable at the table.  You might have bought a new cue, tried a different tip and still the frustration builds.

Your worries are over! My three day intensive seminar will give you the tools to play pool at whatever level you want. You will learn the fundamentals of a great swing, and how to develop it. You will learn how to control the cue ball and play better position.  You will also be exposed to three or four aiming systems to add to your arsenal of skills.

Your game will be in your hands with no morw mystery. You will know what to practice and how to practice it.
