No one is immune from missing an easy 8-ball to win the game. During a game a player makes a ball and plays position a maximum 7 out of 8 shots or 87.5% of the time. On the final shot the brain registers making the ball, but not playing position. The brain short circuits, so to speak, 12.5% of the time, and does not understand why it is not playing position on the final shot. This right brain thing can be fixed by creating a mental ball for imaginary position to an easy place on the table. Shooting the 8-ball now becomes part of the normal shooting journey with a subsequent imaginary shot providing victory!
