    Stroke with no acceleration versus stroke with acceleration

    A robot could theoretically, perfectly execute any shot with a constant velocity, the acceleration is simply to keep the the tension out of the arm and keep the cue on the intended path.

    US Open 9-Ball, 2023, Atlantic City, Sep 25-30

    I haven't watched all the matches, but from the ones I have watched I can't say I have seen balls refused in favor of a safety just because of pocket size, if anything I have seen some downright reckless attempts on tough shots :unsure:

    How do these diamond tables play so badly? vid

    R spin would not check off the second rail, even if by chance there was any spin remaining at the speed this was played. First year they changed to Diamonds at BCA they played like this, awful.

    Just making a slight historical correction :) In the 70's and 80's the top snooker players were already household names well before Matchroom took over in 2010, they took over when snookers sponsorship was drying up.
