    @superkracker I have beaten Rossman at three world championship semi-finals. His feet are completely incorrect.

  2. PortsmouthFilms on October 23, 2011 at 11:51 am

    your feet MUST face the table.

    Not sure why so many are trying to discredit Tom Rossman. He is a mulit time World champion after all. Just because he does not play all the way down on his cue does not mean there is anything wrong with his stance. Not everyone can play like that. Some players have back problems or it just isn’t as easy to bend completely over as you get older. I’m sure Dr. Cue will give any of you a chance to prove he is wrong for whatever you want to play for. And my money is on him.

    @ga7531 where do you put the other 10%, or do you float on only 90% of your weight?

  5. ga7531 on October 23, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    This stance sucks!
    Total amater stance.
    You hav to bend much lower.
    50% weight on right leg,30%-left leg, 10% – left hand.
    Foots positioned perpendicular to each other
    Chin(look forvard), right arm(if right handed) and cue must be on one line during strike.

    @jimmydoonz
    He IS suposed to move the cue vertically, because he’s using a technique called pendulum in which the elbow stays still and you move only the forearm making the up and down movement, it’s ok to do that.
    What you shouldn’t do is move the cue horizontally because it changes the place where you hit the cue ball and the aiming point.

    whyn’t you play him for $1000?

  8. Elite59 on October 23, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    Look how far away his chin is from the cue stick…
    now look at the pros, most of them keep their chin down low, almost touching the cue. It helps me to stay low.

  9. jimmydoonz on October 23, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    im sure hes a good player n all but he isnt cueing straight

  10. aznelf13 on October 23, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    he did that after the shot, it’s to make a correct follow thru

  11. jimmydoonz on October 23, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    you can see his cue moving up and down vertically

  12. aznelf13 on October 23, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    no he is, camera view just giving that illusion of a windmill

  13. jimmydoonz on October 23, 2011 at 5:20 pm

    He isn’t cueing straight lololol

  14. amediastintas on October 23, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    how much weight goes on leaning on the table?

  15. alphacapo on October 23, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    Stance is very important…not necesarrily how you stand or standing a certain way …..as long as your balanced your stance is good….have someone come up to you and push you and see how your balance is…. Make sure your balanced….if your not chances are you will come out of alignment while stroking the cue….just like if your bridge isnt solid…. solid stance solid bridge is the most important base to becoming a great player

    you are a 5 in your second year of APA, and he has won numerous trickshot touneys. so, it looks to me like you are also trying to put in your “expertise”. I would rather listen to a lifelong player, no offense. he is just puttin his knowledge out there to help new players better understand the game. There are many variations of stance, bridge, and stroke that you will see the longer you play. not everyone is correct

  17. rish000 on October 23, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Well that that American accent surely doesn’t show that he plays English 8 ball. And like snooker you do not need to have your chin touching the cue in American 8 ball or 9 ball. Watch US open championships, no one is using their chin

  18. justmeppl on October 23, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    I just love how every1 puts in their expertise like they know it all. stand comfy, place the stick comfy in your hand and practice shooting. that worked for me and im a 5. this is my second year playing apa.

  19. mowiejj on October 23, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    Hhaha..Its a playing style. I know exactly what you mean. I ounce asked an old pool player why he plays like that. He told me thats the way he used to playing. And by the way when ur getting older u will hurt ur back if u bend over all the time:p.

  20. iCarroller on October 23, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    U then turn to the side and bend over

    How gay did that sound

  21. wataf211110 on October 23, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Its utter bollocks, he’s nowhere near the line of the cue and his chin isn’t on the cue either. Right foot should be in a straight line with the cue if you’re right handed and the opposite if you’re left handed, he’s playing around a corner style stance. Might be good for 9 ball where the pockets are like buckets but an English 8 Ball table or snooker table he’d miss 8 times out of 10.

    awesome video..thanks a lot for sharing and uploading!

  23. RSPM on October 23, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    All importantly, you want a 90° angle in your elbow, with the top part, (humerus), being paralell to the ground, when the cue tip comes in contact withThe leading foot should be an “anchor”, once it’s placed, don’t move it, if you do, stand up, move away, and start over again. [cont'd below]

  24. RSPM on October 23, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    You also want to get the proper position for the pendular motion of stroking the cue, if you have longer arms, (as someone below this post), you may need to move your hand back some. the cue ball.
    Depending on the shot, you may also want to move your hand forward or backward of the “Sweet spot”, backwards for power, (ie,. break shot), or, forward for touch and accuracy.

  25. videoaccess001 on October 23, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    That was good. I’ll try the balance point hold. I usually do the far back hold, I thought it was about a person arm length and comfort.
