    Two Way Shots

    Watching the pros and having played some against pros, it seems like even when they miss, they don't leave much of a shot for their opponent (unless the shot is just a complete muff). Obviously, this isn't by chance. Admittedly, I don't think much about two way shots but started thinking...

    Should We Really Try To Hit CCB?

    I've been working a lot with the Bullseye Billiards drill for CB control. Found early on there were a few I struggled with. At first, I thought it had to be something wrong in the set up, I wasn't even close. But I thought it had to be me and kept working at it. Finally figured out it was stroke...

    Most Favorable 9 Ball Rack

    I've gone through the Joe Tucker material on racking which was quite good on evaluating the racks from other people. My question is, if you were racking your own on either a 9' Diamond or a Valley Bar Box, what order would you rack the balls in (looking into the rack, starting at the 1 ball)...

    How About Those Bears?

    A less volatile subject? The Bears seem weak from center to edge. And Cutler seems to throw ghost balls to his receivers. I think if he'd just pivot objectively, he'd throw less interceptions. Discuss.

    Playing at our bar in Birmingham, first round of the 9 ball tournament. Up 5 - 0 in a race to 9. Free. Rob Saez got a first round bye and will likely play his first match tomorrow. Tom Kennedy drew a local favorite and strong player. Not sure who will be on the next...

    How Straight is Your Stroke?

    Just curious. My first drill every day, which also serves as a great warm up, is the straight stroke drill where you put the cb on the button, stroke it to the other end rail and bring it back over the button. I also combine this with a speed drill similar to the mother drill taught to me by...

    Best Pool Training Devices

    I've found two that have helped and wondered what other people's experience has been. I think the best, far and away, is the Break-Rak. No question, if you want to improve your break, you still have to break racks of balls. But there are a ton if things you can work on with the break-rak. At a...

    Renfro, What's Up With Soft/Medium and the Chalk?

    Chris, you're vacation at the Us Open is over. :) Where's the goods buddy? I've been using the soft on my new OB2 + since I got it in late July, looks the same as the day it was installed. Didn't mushroom at all.

    Is This a Legal Shot?

    I ran across this short instructional video. He says he jacks up to avoid the double hit yet the cb follows the ob down the table. Looked like a double hit to me. What do you think?
