I was watching a friend play in a match for 4th place in a weekly tournament and his opponent had just two-stroked the 8-ball and missed it. (btw, "two-stroke" means he literally only took 2 warm-up strokes, and we all know you need a lot more warm-up strokes to focus and make your ball).
After my friend won that game I shared my observation, "yeah, he two-stroked the 8ball but he took his time with all the other shots before that."
My friend agreed and then started laughing.
"You know, that's something I always pass on to the guys starting out. I tell them, "You don't stroke once or twice to masturbate do you? Nope, you need to stroke more than that in pool, too.""
OMG I DIED LAUGHING!
But, pretty dang true!
Maybe this blog post will help someone from rushing their shots ;)
