About Mayur Jobanputra
I'm a snooker fan and snooker enthusiast that has been playing the game since 1998. I think snooker is a wonderful game. The challenge of playing isn't just with making big breaks and winning, it's also about how you control your mind and your nerves and how you act under pressure. You really get to understand the diversity of people and how they think when you watch them play -- their inner drive, courage, fears and more. The mental side of this game -- strategy, tactics, remaining calm, performing, etc -- is where I spend a lot of my energy and effort these days. Like any other player, I get the nerves and jitters in match play and it's something I try hard to discover more about. I find that part of the game particularly fascinating.
