This is an absolute gem of a video clip with a lesson from Willie Mosconi himself.
He walked with the dignity of a king, one who had accomplished the ultimate expression of his talent in his life time. He walked also with a relaxed matter of fact gaze, seeming to appreciate the anonymity of the moment. I watched him walk away casually, perhaps the same way he walked around the table so casually dispensing of all the balls, except one break buy valium in amsterdam ball and the cue ball, rack after rack after rack.
I had met him at the show the year before and once again during the BCA Junior Nationals this year which he came to watch during the finals won by Nathan Haddad of Lansing, Michigan with a real nice thin cut on the 8-Ball to win it all, right there in front of Mosconi.
I had a chance to run into Mosconi on a break and I told him that “my grandpa once asked you what the most important thing about pool is, and you said ‘touch’,” and he told me “Yes, touch is important” as he walked back to his chair.
You can see a glimpse of the touch he possessed in this video. Remember to put touch into your aiming system as you deliver the cue smoothly and right on line.
