There are some common mistakes that all players make when playing 8 ball or any pool game, in some cases. I have put together a free course on the fundamentals of billiards and would recommend this as a definite starting point for new players and a great review for more seasoned players. You will find the page to request the course with the Free Fundamentals Tab above.
This letter is dealing mostly with 8 ball and some awesome secrets and tactics that will have you winning more games than you lose in a flash.
Many players can run 5, 6 or even 7 balls and then fail to get position or even worse, choke an easy shot on the 8 ball. I observe players all the time who shoot in all their easy balls and leave the ball stuck in a cluster or behind another ball for last. The average player will then make some crazy attempt at the tied up ball and leave the table wide open for their opponent to run out. I watch many players get to the 8 ball and miss it no matter how easy it is. Having the game in the palm of your hand and then missing an easy shot is one of the most miserable feelings that I have personally experienced. How about you?
I wrote an E Book filled with diagrams and videos, called "8 Ball Winning Strategies" and I wrote it with winning 8 Ball games in mind.
I have been playing pool in leagues on multiple teams, several nights per week for the past 23 years. Before that I was playing sometimes daily in pool halls and rec centers. I'm a certified instructor with the ACS (American Cue Sports Alliance) and I flat out enjoy good pool and watching new players learn the game.
There are many strategies when it comes to winning any pool game. There are some specific to 8 ball which present themselves over and over again. Knowing how to recognize these opportunities and traps and then execute the shot will elevate your game from day 1.
Ted..I just went through your "course", and for a low end player like me, I picked up a lot of good pointers. It goes without saying, but I sure need to improve my shot making and pattern play shooting....I know that goes with a lot of continued practice. I'm in my late 70's and have only played for about 5 years, but I keep trying. The best part of your lesson for me was the breakout section, the comments on safeties, and to NEVER clear all one's balls except for one or two....try a safety instead. Your course was well worth it, and I shall view it many times. Perhaps a minor point.....In Part 16, page 29, you left out the link...!!!I also got a lot out of your pointers after you had been with Ken Tewksbury.....Thanks for all of your efforts....they all are a great help...

Ted--Thanks so much for your Billiard Basic lessons! We have a pool table and my wife and I play just about every day, but I'd gone into a "slump" and was really shooting poorly. Thanks to your basics, I discovered several things I was doing to mess up, such as not following through, etc. Keep up the good work! Sincerely, Pastor Rix W. Tillman El Paso, Tx
TED; JUST A FEW LINES TO SAY THANKS FOR YOUR BILLIARDS INSTRUCTIONS. IVE BEEN PLAYING POOL FOR 30 YRS AND ITS AMAZING HOW EASY IT IS TO FORGET THE BASICS. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND KEEP THEM COMING. THANKS GENE SPENCE GARDEN CITY KANSAS
After not playing pool for a long time, about twenty years, I bought a pool table for my home after retirement. A couple of my buddies come and shoot 8 ball once in awhile. At first I was very rusty at it but I could still shoot a little straight. During Ted Mauro's Pool - Billiards 7 step Installment Instructions, I began to shoot better than I ever had. Not only did this program help me shoot better pool but it helped me get rid of some bad shooting habits and to focus more on my game. Thanks Ted, my draw, left and right English, and my overall game has improved. The seventh Installment has been the most useful instruction for me. I am still practicing and enjoying this part. I can now clean out six balls off the table most of the time. I know it will take awhile before I start with the seventh ball, but it is like Ted says, "Practice, Practice, Practice". Thanks a million Ted.
