Here's another one....

The white dot represents where the bottom of the ghostball needs be. Here it is a visible dot, but in reality it's imagined and not seen. On the ob is also a dark smudge...

I'll never forget going back to the bar scene and using house wood (a house/bar cue) after spending a few years of playing exclusively in poolhalls with my personal cue. Every time I used english I...

What about this: Two draw shots, same cue stick speed, same off center hit, but one cue stick is more or less level and the other is jacked up at about 30. Would the jacked up cue stroke produce...

Well put. And I agree 100%. Once you get a feel/understanding of how to play, the only aiming system you really need is a well programmed brain.

Yes, we "learn" from mistakes. But learning something isn't the same as developing a consistent skill. If I point to an object and say "aim here, point your cue to right here", there is nothing to...
