Learn Billiards while having fun - ACE every rack from casual to competitive

Are you looking to take your billiards game to the next level? Look no further! With over 30 years of experience playing snooker and 8-ball and 9-ball in APA, I've achieved the highest skill levels and won numerous tournaments in the Bay Area. In my customized lessons, I'll work with you to identify your learning style, playing preferences, and target skill level. While I can get into the technical aspects of the game, I prioritize teaching by feel, just like many professional players. Lessons can take place on my competition-ready table or at a local pool hall of your choice (rental fees not included). And if you're interested in group lessons for you and your friends, I'm happy to accommodate groups of up to four students. So if you're ready to start winning every rack and making it to the money round in tournaments, send me a message to schedule your first lesson.

With years of experience and a passion for both playing and teaching billiards, I am the perfect instructor for you. As a captain of three APA teams in 8ball, 9ball, and Masters, I am at the top skill level in both 8ball and 9ball. I frequently coach my teammates and am always adding new players to the team as they quickly grow in skill level. I have also played in numerous local tournaments and frequently place in the money round. But my skills aren't just limited to playing - I love teaching others how to improve their game as well. With a competition-ready Olhausen table at home, I can teach you in any pool hall or even at my own home. So whether you're a beginner or an experienced player looking to take your game to new heights, I am here to help you achieve your goals. Let's get started! If you and your friends are interested in group lessons, please message me. I can teach groups of up to 4 (four) students.

Shekhar gave me great tips that were relevant to my skill level. One of my area to focus was potting the balls in center pocket. His tips worked for me and improve my percentages of making those not possible balls in the past.
