How to trace a pool game


Sometimes complicated pool games start and no choice but to Curran an epic comeback. Most billiard players throw in the towel before time without knowing that, with a little confidence and claw, looking lost that game could still end in victory. Read on if you want to discover some useful for tracing your pool games and leave the opponent knocked out tricks.

It’s not how it starts, is how it ends. Until the referee blows the final, anything can happen. In our case, until the black (or 9 or 10) is in the pocket, there is still game. The first truquillo is clear: trust.

1. Trusting that you can trace

You only get traced if you trust 100% you can do. That even complicated, it is possible, feasible. To maintain a good level of confidence, you can use your past successes, remember that take a long time and you master playing pool or just enjoy the game you most passionate about.  

2. Remember great comebacks

Surely in a championship you have marked one of those historical comebacks that we love. When you see again in a difficult situation, remember that day and convince yourself that you can do it again. If you do not remember any of you comeback, recalls some of the professional billiard players, like this one of the great Ronnie O’Sullivan.

3. Staying motivated

Motivation is everything. And when we go below the score even more. If you have no desire to win, to spend one more round of “crush” the opponent (in the best sense of the word), then it is very likely to end up doing what 90% of billiard players: throw in the towel with 4-0. Or even earlier. The key is to stay motivated all the time, even when you’re losing 4-0. Find your own motivation, remember why you play, what goal you marked you and go for it.

4. Change the dynamics as

The pool is a dynamic game. Sometimes all you wheel for and, at other times, not knowing very well because it seems that everything goes awry. When you go below the lead as normal it is that everything goes awry. So we have to force a change of dynamics. We need to do “something” that things start to go well. There are many ways to do so. One of the best is to ask the dead to take the air time, toileting or relax listening to your favorite music. When you return to the table you’ll feel cooler and you saw it uphill now may make it easier to carry. You have to change the dynamics either way but always respecting the opponent.

5. Save your composure and keep positive

If you follow the above steps, it will be much easier to keep your composure and positivism despite trailing. It is very important not to go into the spiral of negativity, complaints and frustration at falling many billiard players. To overcome have to think positive, see the good side of the pool and be the best friend of the balls. Only then they will also be your best friends and help you achieve the goal: the comeback.
