Learn to play better billiards – Lesson 3: Grip
Is there any billiards fan who doesn’t want to improve their game? Probably not. After being bitten by the Billiards Bug, we all want to learn to play better billiards. Jester’s Billiards is proud to share this wonderful video series on how to play better billiards, starring Master Instructor Anthony Beeler!
Lesson 3: Grip
In Lesson two, Master instructor Anthony Beeler showed the correct stance to use at the table and where to place your bridge hand. In Lesson Three, Anthony will talk about the correct grip, and look at the correct grip pressure – which fingers need to be on the cue, how your wrist needs to be pointed when you’re ready to take the shot, and how to stay consistent when stroking.
Here is some background information about Anthony Beeler, from pooldawg.com:
“Anthony Beeler is an instructional columnist for Pool and Billiard Magazine and On the Break News. He is the owner and founder of Virtual Billiard Academy and the Angles as a Second Language Course. He is a player representative for McDermott Custom Cues and is a four time Kentucky State 9-Ball Champion. In addition, he also won the 2013 BCAPL National 9-Ball Championship and has a total of six top 25 national finishes to his credit.”
“[Anthony] is a certified instructor for the American CueSports Association (ACS) and is the primary author of the ACS National Billiard Instructor’s Manual. Recently, he released a new book entitled, “Unstoppable! Positive Thinking for Pool Players.”
