Paul is a late starter to top class competitive snooker but is the best natural potter of a ball I have seen in a long time. I have been working with Paul for the last 3 months focusing on cue ball control, break building and tactical play and we are seeing a big improvement in his game. Paul intends playing in the P.T.C. and Cue School events next year with a view to getting a place on the main tour. Combining his potting ability with what we are working on he has every chance of achieving his goal.
