Not Much from Mika
November 11, 2010
This video was well done in terms of presentation, and we see Mika playing some very elegant pool, but I was hoping for more of a glimpse into the poolplayer's mind as he demonstrated skills and ran racks. Instead we get a narrator describing situations we may encounter, and while we watch Mika demonstrate jump shots and masse shots to get out of tough spots, the narrator explains that "the degree of difficulty is very high".
This is not to say that there is not a place for such instruction or that it wouldn't be exactly what someone else was looking for. I would recommend it for some players. For me, though, I was hoping that "advanced" meant more analysis, more of the thought process, more of the strategic part of the game.
