A Lesson In Confidence And Delivery From World Snooker Champ Stephen Hendry

Once you have created and mastered your fundamentals, being able to hook them up with confidence into every shot can make you a champion.  Many pool players have so much movement in their stance during delivery of the cue that it is laughable when compared to snooker players.  Why make it so hard on yourself to be great?  Why not just realize that you have got to stay still, and start staying still when you stroke your shot?

Watch how once he decides what to do, he just gets down into his stance perfectly and is ready to make the shot and move on to the next one.  Also, when he shoots he does not jump up, he stays down as if to exaggerate good form.

Whatever your fundamentals are, it is important to master them and position yourself into the shot with accuracy and confidence.  Do this and you will become better in an hour for the rest of your life.  You will beat players you only dreamed of beating before.  You will transform yourself into a champion.

See you soon,
