finally understand CTE, its working big time for me. - 09-15-2019, 11:12 PM

I got tired of missing my long angle cuts with my bullshit half ball aim system I was using, and watched Howards burger video on CTE. I had watched various videos on CTE, but I never could really understand the concept.

but for some reason, maybe because I have been playing steady for a while at home, it clicked big time. I went to my table, and I started making balls, balls that I would have missed using half ball aim. then I watched another video by lil Chris, and it even made it more simpler for me. it just clicked.

to me its pretty simple. 1/8 A-B-C 1/8. thats it. left cut or right cut. 1 tip pivot

I have been playing all day today, and I got it down. its even working on my long rail cuts, that I usually miss.

I still have some fine tuning to do, but im very happy that im now a certified CTE man

Good for you. Lil Chris nailed it when he used the his phone to show the shooters view. Very clear and easy to follow. He didnt cover every aspect of cte but niether does any other one video.

What lil chris describes is not even close to actual CTE. If it works that's fine but its NOT CTE as Stan teaches it.

I thought you only needed half a tip of pivot?

To each their own I guess, whatever it takes to work... half tip here, full tip there, lil Chris's version, Bob Nunley's, Howard Berger's, John Barton's, etc...

It's always a good feeling when something clicks and you start playing better. I hope you continue to improve.

garczar is correct. No lie. CTE pro1 utilizes a 2-line perceptual relationship between the balls to "fix" the cb for a specific ccb perspective. It's from this ccb perspective (the "perception") that one must align the cue left or right half a tip and then pivot or sweep to a final ccb solution.

Lil' Chris does not use perceptions. He simply aims from half tip left or right of ccb straight to A, B, or C on the ob. As garczar pointed out, this is not Stan Shuffett's or Hal Houle's version of CTE. It can be made to work, just like real CTE, with enough table time and experience.

Are you calling Garczar a liar? Or are you just making yourself look stupid?

Thanks guys but i don't need any help. That guy is a moron if he can't handle the truth. Lil Chris's description is NOT Stan's CTE and we all(at least most of us) know that. I have Stan's vids and have talked to him in person at DCC. I know what CTE is.
