Barroom pool affords otherwise unimpressive men the opportunity to be cocky squires -- a fine thing, until you lose. To ensure that never happens again, take lessons with local legend Fran Crimi.
Fran's list of on-felt accomplishments is as long as your list of aching defeats. One of only nine Billiard Congress of America "Master Instructors", the 20+ year tour pro has served as president of the Women's Professional Billiard Association, played with legends Willie Mosconi and Minnesota Fats, and, for Carlito's Way, taught Al Pacino how shoot a cue ball straight into a man's forehead.
Some of what Fran can teach you:
- Proper alignment: Most people play pool from the waist up, but as with golf, it's really about lower body positioning. Unlike golf, it's not about visors.
