Keep the Head and Body Still
I am always interested at how many professional players exhibit some body motion when attempting to deliver the pool cue to within a one millimeter point on the cue ball. This movement occurs when they feel pressure and are uncertain and nervous. Amateur players do this often but you might expect that from them, but pro players I would think are beyond faltering because of pressure. The point here for you is to be sure that when you feel nervous redouble the effort to remain still beyond the stroke delivery. The only movement is eye motion and the actual swing of the cue. The head and body must remain still to obtain supreme accuracy. Check on yourself when you feel the "heat" of battle and you will be playing better pool.
