1.) You have played with your injured finger before, and played WELL, and you can do it again! (8/23)
2.) If you don't play well, you can lose to ANYONE. (8/24)
3.) ALWAYS play your best. ALWAYS try your hardest. (8/24)
4.) When playing lesser players, always try your best. Don't let up on them. A players sometimes throw like P players. Don't get caught off guard. EVERYONE is a threat. Just beat them as fast as you can. (8/24)
5.) Once you stop trying your best and lose that hole, it's really hard to get it back. And often it's too late. (8/24)

6.) In practice, pay close attention to what the boards are doing. Are they fast or slow? Are they kicking left or right?
7.) Get your airmail online during practice. (unless the boards are really fast)
8.) When you feel cocky/overconfident is when you are most vulnerable to lose...
9.) Never be afraid to play anyone at any time. Just do it and try your best even if you aren't on.
10.) Frustration will not help your throw. Stay calm and think logically.. what am I doing wrong? What can I try to fix it?

11.) Throwing a 4-bagger first round is HUGE. So important to jump out on people... You are good at coming back, but what if that's not possible? Try to win as fast as you can.
12.) You are best when you do not talk during matches. Stay focused. Move slowly. Take deep breaths. Stay calm and throw how you can throw.
13.) You should ALWAYS throw a flat bag. Get good at it. Throw only flat until that's all you ever do.
14.) Remember beating lesser players can make you feel you are throwing well, when it's still not good enough against other P players and above...
15.) Just because you expect things to go a certain way doesn't mean they will. Playing Ron on slick boards for example? Don't expect him to throw them all off. He might, but he might also put them all in and if he catches you off guard then you will lose to him on slick boards... (8/24)

16.) If sticky side isn't going well, try slippery side... carefully however.
17.) Pay attention to what each bag does and adjust your throw accordingly, until you find a perfect throw.
18.) Throwing slippery side has more advantage than sticky side. You get more breaks, but be cautious not to throw over the hole.
19.) Remember all this advice and knowledge is excellent and very useful, but if you cannot throw consistently straight it means very little. Over everything, improving your "robot throw" straight in the hole is most important. If you can throw 4-baggers all the time... you will be very difficult to beat.
20.) Cornhole is a game of adjustment. You can complain about conditions, but that won't help you win. Instead, adjust. Whoever adjusts best will win the game. If you can't adjust, then you better work on it for next time. (8/25 Lorain County Fair)

21.) Cornhole is 90% mental. To win you must be mentally and emotionally strong.
22.) Take practice seriously. Use it to get on your game immediately. This will get your confidence up and your focus on so you are ready for your first game
23.) You are most vulnerable to lose your first game, so pratice as much as you can and get focused on ready no matter who you play.
24.) Taking a run in the middle of tournaments has always helped you play better later on.
25.) Pack a snack to long events. You don't want to find yourself feeling dizzy/exhausted when you make it to the finals against a top player!

26.) There are two ways to improve at cornhole. Play often and play the best.
27.) Get a good night of rest before major tourneys. Not enough sleep means you may feel tired and unfocused for the event... and leads to your demise even against weak players. So take rest seriously.
28.) If you only work to resolve your weaknesses, you will fail to develop your strengths. If you only rely on your strengths, someone will exploit your weaknesses. So work on both equally.
CORNHOLE MENTAL ADVICE FOR STACIA
29.) Cornhole is a mental game, so the answers are mostly mental. This means stay calm, stay focused, and be wise to win games!
30.) Play smart. You've seen how over-aggression can kill players and you've seen how Dave Weiser can make smart decisions to win games. Do the same. Aggression is okay but should be calculated.


31.) Inertia is HUGE.
32.) If you have/draw a good partner. Do not expect them to do well. Be ready to carry them. IF they do well then great, you'll win. If not, be ready to pick them up. Then if you still lose, at least it isn't your fault. You can only do what you can do.
33.) Advil seems to help me play better.
34.) Make sure to drink water. You get tired and sloppy when you are dehydrated.
35.) Frustration won't ever help you win. If you feel frustrated step away, maybe even go use the bathroom and get your head straight. Play slower and concentrate on trying your best. React logically if bags don't go right instead of emotionally. Use your mistakes to better your game, not make you upset and possibly do even worse.

36.) Stay warmed up if possible.. if not, keep your head focused on the next game.. Who? When? Take a run to stay warm? Get other stuff out of the way like getting a drink or using the bathroom or getting food. Use every moment wisely.
