Billiards Pool Game for Beginners
Learning to Stand and Hold the Cue Properly
(The Stance, The Grip and The Bridge) Beginners tend to stand very awkwardly when they try to shoot pool. Most stand in a way where they have no balance and will fall over if pushed. Some can barely hold the cue steadily because their whole body is shaking from the strain of trying to maintain their weird posture.When I am teaching, I first get students to learn a good stance and bridge and make sure their cueing is straight.They do not get to touch the cue ball or make a shot until they can maintain their balance in their stance and have a clean, straight stroke. Sometimes I even try to gently push them to test if they are in a stable stance. Ideally you should be so comfortable, you can stay in this position indefinitely.
