    DO NOT be a 14.1 Statue

    DO NOT be a 14.1 statue. We've all seen the 14.1 statues - the players that stand in one spot looking and mulling over their dilemma ... they just stand there frozen in time ... and instead of increasing their knowledge and perspective of their layout - they rely upon their limited, 1 degree...

    Which way?

    Here is an interesting situation that comes up all of the time. You have a wide open layout with many options. . . . In the first route, we use the pattern 8, 10, 5. With this option, we just have to get straight on the 5 ball, and basically just keep the cue ball in that area, below the...

    Videos: Niels Feijen 130 & 116

    I had both of these videos posted to google video, and due to google video shutting down, I uploaded these to my youtube account this morning. These videos are slightly different from the originals that I uploaded in 2008 - they are scored, and available for viewing in HD. Niels Feijen: 130...
