I played target pool a long time ago and LOVED it. As a below average player it helped me see the "HOW AND WHY" things happened with the cue ball. I grew up in a smallish town and there weren't many people with the knowledge or desire to teach others how to actually play. That being said, it isn't the right tool for EVERYONE to use. A player that has been a pro for a decade probably doesn't need this tool at all.


Oh yeah, by the way, in my imagination I don't need a grain of salt, my cue ball just floats wherever I will it to with my mind.

For those interested, video demonstration of Bob's "card trick" can be found on the target-pool resource page. Also available are other instructional articles (including Bob's) and videos describing and demonstrating useful target-pool practice drills. Also available are free templates that can be printed and cut out as targets for practice.

The BullseyeBilliards product is also very well done, with excellent drills and a larger target (much bigger than a dime or the templates on the resource page) with different zones for scoring.

Agreed. Even if people don't want to buy a target-pool product, they can still benefit from their own target-pool practice.

Yes, I played in both the major 'Target Pool' championships. Also was "lucky" to win both of them, probably because I liked the game......it put an emphasis on longer shots using a variety of spins and speeds.

Here is the simple tool you can use instead of cards. Taping the screen will generate 2 random spots on a pool table diagram.

Number 2 at the end of the link can be replaced with another number (max 6)

That's cool.

FYI, I've added it with credit to you and a link on the target-pool resource page.

Sounds like you must have got lucky, having to use something other than TOI on so many shots and stuff.
