How to conduct yourself whilst at the table
How you look round the table can have a big influence on your opponents game as well as your own.
If you act confident you feel confident. So even when you are not feeling great, you can still look confident. if your opponent see’s you as being positive, even if things aren’t going well they will not be as assured that they have the upper hand in the battle.
Never walk with your head down, don’t show any negative emotions. Don’t tut, huff or puff and certainly don’t criticise yourself out loud.
Stephen Hendry is a great example of how to look confident round the table. He possessed an aura around the table that made him look very focused and in control.
Look at this next picture. It shows Hendry at the table in a world final against Jimmy White. If you look at White, notice how he has sat his cue down almost as a gesture of resignation and the look of dejection in his body language.

Enjoy your game.
