When I watch the pros on tv break a 9-ball rack, they break a few inches from the long rail by the second diamond with draw. I was wondering where they hit the 1 that makes the cue go directly to the side of where the 1 should be and they make they 1 go in the side or the corner? Any help for me?

Davey,
Go to the columns section and read my article entitled "Breaking to Win". There is a diagram and instructions on how to properly execute this break shot. Good luck.

Then someone like me who is not interested or have anything to contribute to what the thread turns out to be about at that time, will be more likely to be able to determine that from the subject and not have to spend time opening the thread to find that out.

This is a better view of the diagram.

Or someone like me who is just beginning to play 9 ball occasionally recreationally but would be interested in hearing about breaking in 9 ball.

Hi Tom.
