    Snooker... Why does Ebdon take so long?!

    Has anyone been watching the snooker on BBC2?

    Have you noticed that Peter Ebdon almost always hits the cue ball on the 10th Strike when he's lining up his shot?!

    WHATS ALL THAT ABOUT?????!!!
    I'm after another Coupe Turbo

    m8 i play pool as a hobby and sometimes take part in competitions, he takes long because the angle of the cue has to be str8 on impact for the shot he wants to play e.g. screwback, topspin or sidespin etc. If he just goes rite ahead and plays the shot he may not pot, spin correctly or worse case scenario, he could miss cue(really bad).

    He does play a little slow in terms of thinking about his shots, ppl may think this is to plan ahead, but i think he does it on purpose to break the other players rhythm. I'm quite surprised how offensively he's played this year, in terms of the pots hes taken on, some where very risky.

    all in all m8, he is a bit slow. But if it wins him matches, then good for him, he's just ensurin perfect contact between the cue and the white ball.
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    I played quite a bit of snooker at uni, and agree that concentration is needed but just feel sometimes he takes too long and it does not help his rhythm.
