When playing with pool tables with via friends or competitions,
you will notice each player has a different stance although
they all come from the same basic structure or where to place
your feet, arms and hands no matter what age, height or weight.
The first thing to do when creating your stance is where to
place your feet. Unless your feet are steady, you will not
have a steady hand when playing your shot. As with many sports,
it is vital you do not place your feet to far apart but also
not to close together. It needs to feel comfortable no matter
what types of pool tables you maybe playing at either at home,
pub or any other scenario.
Any player at a pool table has their centre of gravity change
when learning over the table. The player may need to readjust
their feet to compensate for this. If not, your cue action
will be far inferior than if you move your feet to a comfortable
width apart. The hand being used as the bridge is not for leaning
on the table so there should be very little pressure of weight
felt upon this hand. Your overall weight should be distributed
when positioning your cue and that you are not to close to
a pool tables leg and also making sure both feet are on the
When playing your shot and lining up the cue ball, there maybe
times when your body needs to be more flexible. This can also
be affected due to the placement of the pool balls. You can
easily compensate for this by bending the front knee which
allows you to bend your hips closer to the table.
The bridge arm which is resting on the pool
usually almost straight. Not elbow locked but slightly bent at
the elbow instead and away from the players body. When your stand
is correct, it means you are in a kind of triangle stance when
ready to take your shot after using the bridge hand to line up
the cue to the cue ball.
