How do you get over the frustration of playing someone that just bangs the
shit out of the balls and either lucks in the 9 or locks up a safe on every
Example... Playing in the tourney last night I won my first match 3-0
against a finesse player (plays position, safes, etc). I then lost my second
match to a pretty good player. Then in my third match I play Joe kill the
balls. He slams everything and for some off the wall reason the cueball
travels 4-5 rails and rolls right up behind the 9. Or he jacks up, the
cueball flies off the table bounces down the rail back onto the table again
hits the object ball that rolls to one end of the table and the cueball
rolls to the other end of the table hitting the 9 and it falls in. At every
chance at the table I would say I only had a shot 10% of the time.
The frustration level was immense. The guy sharks me with luck and I loose
0-3. This is not the first time this has happened either, there is a guy at
another tourney I play in that does the same and I lost 0-5. How the hell do
I practice for this???
