The Ultimate Guide To Playing Pool

Posted on January 15, 2016 | 0 comments

Thank you to Jess Philpott of Home Leisure Direct in the UK for sharing this with us.

Cue sports are hugely popular across the world. The simplicity of the game and the fact anyone from any age group can play makes it a great game to play socially. The problem with this is that hardly anybody knows how to play pool/billiards properly. The misconception is that you hold a cue, aim it and fire. This is how most people play and it’s still fun to play this way. Wouldn’t it be better though if you knew how to play and dominated each game you did play on pool tables
It’s your lucky day
We’ve found a comprehensive guide on how to play pool by no other than 4x World Champion Gareth Potts. The guide is 10 chapters long supported with text, video and additional resources. You can jump to any chapter you like and focus on that aspect of your game. Once you complete the guide you realise how many little things affect your play in pool
The way you stand and line up a shot is vitally important. The way you hold the cue with your back hand is vitally important and the other 8 aspects discussed in this complete guide to playing pool. 
You can find the full guide here: The Complete Guide To Playing Pool
Let us know what you think and come back here and comment below on what aspect of your game you think is lagging the most and what your favourite chapter is.

Thank you to Dr. Emmanuelle O. of Rockville Maryland for purchasing this new Vox pool table by Plank and Hide.  The table is shown in the dark gunmetal grey finish on solid steel contruction with Olhausen Accu-Guard tournament stain and spill resistant billiard cloth in Ebony.  The table plays wonderfully off of the custom distressed grey wide plank flooring for a rustic and urban feel in this game space.  The buyer has young children who will enjoy this table for years to come because of the indestructable steel construction and 1,000 pound assembled weight.  Wow! That is not your run of the mill basement pool table.  For pricing and availability on the new Plank and Hide steel line of pool table please contact Robbies Billiards Home and Patio at 301-331-7024, email robbies.scheduling@gmail.com, or visit our new Rockville Maryland design center.plank and hide vox pool table grey metal detailplank and hide vox pool table setup in rockville marylandplank and hide vox pool table logo grey metal

The Alexandria custom pool table is our most sought after game room showpiece and we would like to thank Steven G. of Potomac Maryland for purchasing this unique example.  Steven worked with his designer to coordinate the finish and fabric on this Alexandria pool table in his upstairs dining room so they could enjoy billiards just off of the family kitchen.  The finish is Olhausen Heritage Maple with a wiped through antique treatment showing the lighter maple panels with burnishing along the edges.  This more traditional finish on the very contemporary Alexandria works well in the customers home in one of the more established neighborhoods in Potomac Maryland.  If you would like to talk about designing your own custom Alexandria pool table please call Robbies Billiards Home & Patio at 301-331-7024, email robbies.scheduling@gmail.com, or visit our new Rockville Maryland Design Center today.alexandria pool table olhausen heritage maple finishalexandria pool table side viewolhausen alexandria pool table potomac maryland
