Proper Stance for Shooting Billiards
Rather read than watch? Read about proper stance for shooting billiards below:
First we have the traditional stance which happens to be the one that I prefer. As you can see my knees are bent my weight distribution is roughly 50/50 the two key words for a good effective stance is comfort and balance. Also note that my anchor foot , my left foot is also along the line of my shot, my grip hand is at rest right around the hip area.
Now the alternative to this particular stance is more of a snooker style stance, saying that simply because if you watch some of the snooker players they tend to take a more squared-off stance, such as this. Both feet are even, grip hand is still roughly where the hip is. Again, balance is the key. 50/50 weight distribution and knees slightly bent, comfort and balance are the keys.
