    Pressure situations can be replicated through imagery and contextual mental problems. Ever hear a pro basketball player say "I’ve been practicing for that shot my whole life.” In their head, they have. So in their head they have solved the problem enough to give confidence, a value/ risk positive thought.

    Personally I like Ralph Eckert’s thought process of “this next shot is for me” when it comes to dealing with pressure and even shooting in general. Keeps you centered and not thinking about the distractions around you.

    High stress relief? Two beers and a few tokes. No more beers as you then get 'fuzzy', but more tokes won't hurt. Oh, and CONFIDENCE. When one sits and watches a video of someone playing a match they constantly tell themselves how easy the shots are. And they are. SO, whenever you are the one performing the shots, you must be calm and cool and remember those times when you told yourself how easy the shots are when you watch someone else doing them.

     If you want humor, try shooting firmly on a snooker table using 2 1/4 inch American billiard balls. way more misses on those tables, not because of the ball size, but more because of the pocket opening and rail end shape. That will keep you laughing.

    Sometimes when I play shots, I get the positional spot on but I dnt pot the intended ball…. Is that a case of overthinking or being caught in 2 minds?

    1st you have to like the pressure regardless. 2nd you either want to make the shot or you don't

    I have to say that the thing that throws me off guard the most and makes me miss shots is if I’m playing with someone else…Most of the time I play by myself, so I don’t have to worry about the outcome of the shot. But when it’s with someone else I tend to overthink everything

    What helps me with focus is music, I usually play with earpods in and I play music which helps blur out the crowd and any sounds that could throw me off..

    Get enough practice to correct your mistakes and to feel confident in competition. If you feel nervous slow down, chalk your cue, look around and determine your best option for potting and getting position. Consider position but concentrate totally on potting first. If the shot appears difficult consider safety.

    For "pressure shots"….Resolve in your mind that you're going to miss this shot. "That's it..I missed. I lost. Oh well…I'm still gonna do my best to make it..Even if it's just to get practice at it…But I missed. I've lost already"….Don't get yourself down about it, but rather just accept it. Then all the pressure just goes away. Now you're shooting calmly, because there is nothing at stake. In your mind, you've already missed and lost the game. Works for me quite often in MANY situations. Not just pool.

    There is a guy on my team who is a decent player, but during matches he gets in his own head too much. I told him, as I always tell myself when I’m up is it’s just another ball. One more that O have to put in a pocket. Nothing more, nothing less. Hope that helps

    Hi, I've played for some years, Best this to do is (if your underpressure) Stand up.. Chock your que, clear your mind, and THINK,,, I am playing the table..not the person. and yes.. Know I've made this shoot before.
    Approach the table CORRECTLY. Get in your stance. and stroke your shot. Wow you made it. Cool,Great Job

    The pressure on you is exactly the same as the pressure on him. You’re both playing the same game.
