  1. 1. Snooker players: James Crickmore Snooker players have the potential to earn some real money at this popular game, if they can become good enough to go at it professionally. Many folks, like James Crickmore, only play it for fun, and it can be a great hobby to have. It can be fun to play at social events, and can even impress a few folks if a player is particularly good for a hobbyist. Light snooker players can take a few steps towards improving their game, even if they do not intend to go into the game professionally. One way to improve is to do what is called “feathering.” Essentially, this is like rehearsing a shot before the player takes it. The player positions himself as if about to take the shot and, without touching the ball, pretends to execute the shot a few times in order to play out the move in his head. If the shot feels right, the player can then make the move. It is important for players like James Crickmore to remember to execute each shot with confidence – second-guessing part way through a shot is one way that amateurs consistently foul up their shots. Having confidence that a ball will go the direction the cue points it is one way to improve without even really trying. Another thing to consider in improving a player’s snooker game is to have an appropriate stance. For right-handed snooker players, the right foot should be near the shot and always kept in a straight line. The left foot is placed in front and the knees should be kept loose, allowing the hips freedom of movement. A player should pick a stance that he can hold comfortably until the end of his shot. It is important to hold the stance until the shot is completed. In addition to stance, grip is also very important. A firm grip is important in order to correctly guide the cue and make sure the player does not lose control over it while making a shot. On the other hand, it is also important for a player to avoid gripping the cue too tightly, as that risks just as much loss of control as a loose grip. A good grip avoids exerting too much pressure in either direction. These are just a few things players like James Crickmore works on whenever they get a chance to play a game of snooker.
