                        After scouting out the town we have learned the city of Garland  has eight pool halls, most of them well known within the streets of these neighborhoods. While a few remain exotic and estranged except to those that frequent often. Understanding the need for the game we have compiled below a list of all the locations and a little bit of information to help improve how we play. Enjoy!

"Step 1
Develop a consistent, smooth cue shot. Place your forward hand on the table so that it is as stable as possible. The cue stick needs to slide smoothly through this hand.

Step 2
Use your cue stick as a sight by placing the tip of the cue stick in the target pocket. Align the stick across the middle of the ball you intend to sink. The stick now traces a line through the ball to the pocket. Where this line (your stick) crosses the outer edge of the ball is the point where you want to hit it with the cue ball.

Step 3
After you are in position and have lined up the shot, don't look at the target ball, look at the cue ball. Strike the cue ball with your stick slightly below the center line.

Step 4
Keep your shooting arm close to your body and your elbow bent at 90 degrees. The shooting movement should come from your shoulder. Use only enough force to make the shot. Additional power is not necessary and can disrupt your aim."
