Is anyone here a pool shark? I've been playing for about 8 years now (if not more) and I love the game. Playing in Japan is different than playing in the States. For one, almost no one knows how to play 8 ball. Don't even THINK about straight pool No, the game of choice over here is 9 ball (which I don't really like.) Pool halls are pretty cool though. After people are done on their table, the staff comes and wipes them down (the table AND the rails) then polishes the balls and puts them in the tray in NUMERICAL ORDER Gotta love it. One thing I don't like is the absence of carpeting in most places, which makes it louder and when someone drops a cue it wakes up the whole neighborhood. Getting to the point though I cannot seem to do draw shots anymore. Follow (top) I have no problem with, and English I have no trouble with, but I cannot do draw shots to save my life. I've tried different bridges (open & closed) and different cue heights on the ball, but even when I follow through the cue ball either stops dead or rolls back 2 inches then stops. Any pros out there want to give me some tips?
