Learning Straight Pool - 10-16-2017, 03:20 PM

Are there any websites or videos specifically targeted towards straight pool? I really like the game and am trying to learn more, but there doesn't seem to be a lot out there. Most stuff seems to be 8 or 9 ball related if anything.

This is the straight pool section from his video
By the best straight Pooler

https://youtu.be/qRKw56oAA-E


I thought it was longer than this, the straight pool part of the video
And I think there's better quality of it as well, probably the whole video

Thanks to GORDML the stream and some previous matches are on Diamond Billiards Richmond Facebook at

https://www.facebook.com/Diamond-Bil...82772148489583

I was able to watch without becoming a Facebook member. Once you get on the page scroll down a few clicks to view the matches/stream.

This was a little frustrating that the information for the stream wasn't posted somewhere on AZB but that's pool.

...and my apology for all of the mis-information I previously posted.

Jim Rempe's How to run a 100 was recommended to me, along with Phil Capelle's book on straight pool.

Here is a link to the book from one of our forum sponsors
https://www.seyberts.com/play-your-best-straight-pool

Here are two places you can get Jim's video

Holy cow Tony C, I've never even heard of this page, but they got some sweet matches on here. I know what I'm going to be doing for the rest of the week...

Thanks cueacademy but I'd never seen it either until AZ member GORDML tipped me to find it.

If you get the chance to watch any of today's matches make sure you watch the Alcaide/Van Corteza match. Very impressive play and easy to watch. I found the others today not so much.

Big fan of Phil Capelle's "Play Your Best Straight Pool" and "Break Shot Patterns" books. The Break Shot book has a DVD of over 100 patterns as played by the pros.
