I've played the line up drill thousands of times. It's addictive trying to hit the max score. This drill alone improved my break building more so than any drill I've tried.

Once you start to reach a certain standard and it becomes less challenging, the possibilities are endless to keep it a challenge. The most difficult I've tried was potting a red, then yellow, then red, then green, then red, brown, red, blue, red, pink, red, black, red, yellow.... You get the idea. Cycle through the colours in value order until you have no more reds left. The reason it's difficult is the white has to travel more than normal. But what it achieves is forcing you to think not just 3 shots ahead, but several shots ahead. It's mentally tiring but you get used to being mentally tired... Which is a good thing also.

He changes the configuration of the reds a bit to make a yellow clearance a bit easier. But it's still beyond my skill level, that's for sure.

This gentleman manages a 99 clearance with the use of the baulk colors and no reds below the blue.

First, thanks for the links.

Wow, absolute wow!

That yellow clearance was humbling and inspiring at the same time. Humbling, because now my pool line-up clearances don't seem like much
Inspiring, because now I understated that this drill can universally test anyone to the fullest of their potential. The bar can be set very high. We see it here.

Thanks again for the links.

Good drill and good shooting!

Just so I'm clear, do we need to get on the 2 directly from the last stripe, or can we shoot, say, the 5 after the last stripe to get on the 2?

Thanks and again, good shooting.

Thanks for watching, Mitch.

Yes, the way I was shown is that after the last stripe you have one more solid of your choice to get position on the two and then begin the run of colors in order to complete the drill.

Thanks for the compliments and as more videos get posted, I'll copy the links and add them to the list in the first post.

No problem!

Those guys aren't even pros, top level amateurs though which is essentially equivalent to local 'pros'. They would do well in the pro-ams but Selby, Robertson et al would not have much trouble with them.

There is a video of Shaun Murphy talking about the line up and how the routine is his bread and butter. I think translating the yellow clearance to the pool table would be an excellent routine/challenge given the cue ball movement required. I also like Pidge's suggestion of rotating through the colours.


I would kill for a nobel peace prize

the purpose of all drills is to make a ball and make the cue ball go THERE
the more times you do that
the better you get at it

I counted 8 of 17 shots were your elbow was visible.

That's basically 50% of the time that your elbow dropped.

Fairly nice shooting as you made it fairly easy with good CB control.
