I just seem to be a lot more innacurate when I play with a lot of power. I wondered if it was just a matter of practice on this type of shot or if there were any specific points to think about when playing with power.
Sonny wrote:The coach will arrive soon with a proper answer Andy, I can't answer because I struggle with power shots too but I think one of the keys is to keep your head still as the instinct is to stand up with the effort when you try and deliver the cue as hard as you can. I guess Judd Trump would be the player to study seeing as how hard he hits the ball on a straight line.

im far more accurate and confident playing power shots than slow touch deadweight shots etc
i just feel far more certain blasting them in to be honest
