How to Chalk a Pool Cue

You might think you know how to chalk a pool cue but think about where you learned your technique. If you learned from watching someone else in a pool hall or from watching people on TV or movies, odds are you're doing it wrong. An improperly chalked tip can cause you to miscue or can diminish your accuracy by not gripping the cue ball properly.

A well chalked cue tip should be thoroughly coated in proper billiard chalk and it should be well chalked with every single shot. The type of chalk you use can dictate how often you need to chalk up but chalking your cue the right way each time can be the difference between winning and losing.
