The environment includes a lot of small things that distract us or divert the target. We lose focus . Those things are comments from friends ( “to see if you win”), public comments while you’re playing (though they speak low, are heard), the presence of some important billiardist in the stands (places) or the level / quality the music heard in the background. All these factors are a major enemy and determine your performance.
