Jumping up !!!

I completely agree with what Matt has stated above. In my 40+ years of playing I have done the 1000 ball drill at least a dozen times. I also do the drill for a few hundred times, when my stroke...

WWYD - Getting on 2 ball

Agreed. My answer is still to go between the 6-9. That is much easier than perfectly matching spin and speed all the way down table. You also have the short rail as a brake.

I will say the shot...

WWYD - Getting on 2 ball

I’m sure the shot is possible but it takes very accurate speed and spin to go around the nine. I think going between the 6 and 9 gives more opportunity for success. Brushing the 9 on the inside...

10 Ball - is it played like 9 ball

I’m a big fan of “call safe” but only in the right game at the right time. Definitely not for league or tournaments.

I am in agreement. However, I’ve never seen it played “call safe”. I’m not against playing “call safe” but I rarely see “call safe” in anything other than straight pool. And I rarely see straight...

I think he means achieving the same cue ball action (speed and spin) with a shorter stroke. Reaching your desired cue speed, in a crescendo style, using a 5-6 inch stroke, with a 5-6 inch follow...

Billiards on TV

I was very surprised to get home from work and find my DVR recording billiards! It appears ELVN, DirectTV channel 623, is running the 2019 Predator World 10 Ball Championship.

551102Found both of these online a few years back. The blue one is for snooker but works fine on 2.25 balls. The smaller size makes it nice to carry in your case.
