There are two classes of pool players in the world. The serious shooter is dedicated to finding ways to gain better control how the cue ball rolls around the table. Most players enjoy pool because, well – it’s fun! This book is written for you guys. This is an introduction to the idea that defensive shooting is just as important as offensive shooting. Here is something to remember: there are no rules that require you to play stupid shots. When you have a table layout with a shot that is too tough, you really do not have to figure out some crazy way that the object ball MIGHT (maybe) get to a designated pocket. How about this as a simple solution? DON’T try to make the shot. Instead, shoot something that prevents your opponent from winning the game. If you do this, your opponent has a difficult situation. You can let him invent silly reasons to miss. You come back to the table with a good chance to win (or get closer to a win). Let him play all offense all the time. You play a few safeties and let him give you the opportunity to win. When this book falls into your hands, there is stuff you can use immediately. Besides the tips, there are techniques, exercises, and a few tricks that help you win more games. Yes, you can even use these to beat better shooters. Consider this book to be the digest version of the Safety Toolbox. A couple of hours of study, combined with some practice table time, and you are suddenly a tougher shooter. Let your opponents use the bar-banger style of calling fantastic hero shots, such as, “5 ball, four rails, off the 7 and into the side pocket.” This book will add some competitive maturity to your playing style. I don’t need to wish you good luck. This book and some of your time is all you need to begin winning more games. And here’s a useful benefit from the book – you don’t have to outshoot your opponent. Simply prevent him from winning.

If you think (or want to think) you are an “A” player, this book will either prove you are as good as you think – or demonstrate that you need to work harder. These series of layouts require excellent pocketing skills – and strong positioning abilities. For shooters who are seriously striving to reach that level, this book is a critical part of your training regimen. The sequence of these layouts either confirms your ability, or demonstrates a weakness that needs to be fixed. Every layout requires that you make the ball - then get into position for the next ball. Every layout shows the positions of the cue ball, 1 ball, and 2 ball. You only need to pocket the one ball, and then the two ball - very simple and easy to understand. But, these are not ordinary problems, every starting position for the cue ball and 1 ball was a problem facing a professional player in national and international competitions. Study this material in two steps. In the comfort of your home, review the layout, and carefully consider your options. How can you solve the problem? What speed and spin is needed? Are there multiple solutions? Write down your ideas. Then, take this to the practice table, and see if your solutions are possible. Learn from your failures, and make adjustments. And, once you learn how, repeat several times. It is very important that you can consistently make every ball. This book will be a challenge to your abilities, a source of many frustrations, and the joyful experiences of successful accomplishments. Enjoy the challenge and the satisfaction of success! ++++++++++++ Some information on how this book was developed. After I wrote the popular “Cue Ball Control Cheat Sheets” book, several friends who are serious players, wanted something more difficult. Most billiard books and videos are for average players. There are very few books for advanced players. They wanted a significant challenge to their skills. This is that book.First, hundreds of hours of competitive matches were reviewed. Several hundred shots were selected. After a series of tests with strong “A” players, the system in this book was designed.

Have you ever lost a game or a match you KNOW should have been yours? Perhaps, your opponent distracted you. If, at any time during a competition, your concentration was destroyed, you were being set up to lose. Unfortunately, there are way to many players who use such tricks in order to gain an advantage. Like it or not, gamesmanship has become as much a part of table competition as the rules of the game. This book describes every dirty trick someone can play on you – and how to stop them. These situations are most often observed in sports competitions. They also happen in your family, spousal relationships, friendships, work, and in business. This book is a primer to help you survive life. The more easily you can recognize gamesmanship, the more fun it is to counter-respond. With this information, you no longer need to be the victim of someone else’s ruthless behavior. The book could never be complete enough to cover every possible ploy, but it will help you recognize when someone is playing with your head. Gamesmanship has been around forever. Tricks and traps to fool others have been used in nature since the beginnings of the food chain. It is so pervasive in the world that Sun Tzu incorporated trickery and deception in his “The Art of War”, and that was 2,500 years ago. Even at the first Olympics in ancient Greece, psychological sharking tricks and traps were used to distract and intimidate opponents. These were the guys who came up with the Trojan Horse – an ultimate shark if ever there was one. However fiercely you may cling to the high ideals of upstanding sportsmanship, the reality of the world is that there are many who do not. This book is your best educational tool.

Together with his partners Andreas Huber, Jorgen Sandman and Dirk Schwiewager the author developed the PAT System (Playing Ability Test), a standardized evaluation and training system for pool billiards that has been recognized by the WPA (World Pool-Billiard Association) and the European association EPBF. The player‘s level is checked at regular intervals in a series of tests, for which points and emblems are awarded. This book is written for beginners through to slightly advanced players who want to make their game of pool more professional using the PAT systems and generally have more fun playing (PAT 1). The training units in the book are accompanied by comments from the German national trainer Andreas Huber, a graduate of engineering born in 1969. Andreas is an expert pool billiards player who also helped to develop the PAT System as well as setting up the Dachau Billiards Academy. His tips on how to play in practice draw on a wealth of expertise and experience collected over years as a player and trainer.

This newly revised edition is intended to serve as a practical tool for school administrators, physical education department heads, architects, planning consultants, and all others interested in planning new areas and facilities or checking the adequacy of those already in use. Chapter input was solicited from carefully chosen leaders in the field of athletic facility planning as well as from outstanding architects. Efforts were made to incorporate the most recent advances in facility planning and construction. Certain program areas, such as planning for the handicapped, were expanded, while outdated or irrelevant materials were deleted. The following topics are covered in separate chapters: (1) the planning process; (2) indoor facilities; (3) outdoor facilities; (4) swimming pools; (5) encapsulated spaces and stadiums; (6) service areas; (7) facilities for recreation, parks, and open spaces; (8) planning for the handicapped; and (9) trends in facility design. The book is illustrated with photographs and diagrams of the facilities discussed and selected references are cited at the end of each chapter. Appendixes include state requirements for school construction; checklists for building service, and security and safety planning; and supplementary photographs and figures. (MLF)
