a GREAT video breaking down the 3 shots of the rail nurse,

setup, position, and bringing your ball back

He explains how important it is to get the correct spin onto the the first object ball (ball #2 in European-speak). Amazingly, the editor of Daly's Billiard Book said that such a thing could not be done although he included Daly's instruction to do so.

funny that i still cant do it

i was regularly getting 15 easy right after i read hoppes technique in his book i got last yr
i got a 28 once from it,
reverse english on the 2nd and hit below the center of the cue ball to kill momentum in all 3


now i cant get 7, strange thing
even with all the practice and this vid

Hey Richard. I see that you've been reading up & practice lots of straight rail. :thumbup:

What's your average and highest run now?

I still don't have lots of time to practice yet. So I'm still at my highest of around 15 (doesn't come often as I wish though), average maybe 3-4. Practice makes perfect for sure. :)

Texas Carom Club 02-10-2019 05:27 PM

oh yes all of last yr i started to take it on seriously, along with 1bande

i hover around 1 average, but havent played alot since because they all abandoned me lol
i just practice gathers and try to make a few points, i think that was deans suggestion

28 is my high run

im going to start going out to play with others across the city
lot of libre gamblers here lol

HaiNhi 02-10-2019 07:33 PM

When re-read my post, what I probably meant was, my average high series are 3-4, not my overall average. Overall average is way below that. Hehe.

My target for the rest of this year is to get consistent on "easy" (balls close together) shots: 1 bank, half table positions, direct carom. Then start practicing on gather shots, and rail nurse.

Around here in San Jose, they don't play for "fun". At least something is at stake. :) Mostly Vietnamese & Mexican players as far as I can tell.

You also changed your signature to mention Royal Pro cloth?

Texas Carom Club 02-11-2019 05:08 AM

Ya i gotta get back to training
Been hooked on 14.1 pool again

Not focusing much on libre, bet i play really good for a little time now!

R.p. yes
Its time for a change

Texas Carom Club 02-11-2019 09:30 AM

My goal is to get a 20 plus 1 cushion run and 30 plus straight rail run on vid
This yr

Texas Carom Club 02-11-2019 02:17 PM

Another great one for straight rail these guys take a position and come up with the best gather from the spot to get a good run after

Thank you for this one.

Texas Carom Club 02-11-2019 05:17 PM

he shows and tells you need a 1 inch or less bridge and holding the cue at the balance point
gives the greatest control over speed. for the rail nurse
