Guys think that to win Foosball you have to be able to hit all kinds of shots from all kinds of positions. But all you really need is one shot, says Robert Mares, a three-time gold medalist at the World Cup of Table Soccer. If you can get the ball to one of the front players—and shoot at either right, left, or center of the goal, you'll always win.
Since only two players can cover the goal, there will always be an open spot. Perfecting three shots from one player will win. “The shooter always has the percentage,” he says. “There aren’t enough defenders to block it.”
