Is there any sort of rule or etiquette in how long you take to shoot? I try to keep it with in 30 seconds, but would happily take longer. If someone can explain this please help. Thanks!
This question relates to the following billiard rules:

If a player is suspected of intentionally playing slow the ref can implement a stop clock into the game. It will apply to all players at the table. It is a 30 second clock. I believe most good players take about 10-15 seconds to take a shot. If a player takes too long a time to make a shot it is a sign to his opponents that he is unsure of himself and also inexperienced. Good pool players not only read the table, they also read their opponent. If anyting I would advise you to practice, and at the same time, time your shots ( or have someone do for you.) If you 're taking 30 seconds or longer try to bring it down. But do not rush it.
As always, have fun doing this.

If you need 20 strokes and then 20 more do them while I'm making balls. If you're sharking you're wasting our time.
