Ronnie O'Sullivan

I'm Ronnie O'Sullivan and I'm one of the top snooker players in the world.

It's time to look at the cueing action so get yourself into position.

Watch my masterclass

Forget about the cue now, it's all about what we do.

Keep completely still with your arm over the cue.

Steve Davis and Stephen Hendry - the greatest players in the game - have always demonstrated this perfectly.

When you are striking the cue ball the elbow with which you are holding the cue should be in a direct line with the cue.

Don't let your elbow fall away outside the line of the cue, or tucking it in closer to your body.

This is the best way to ensure that you hit the ball straight and positive consistently.
