Exclamation New Video Dealing with Creative and Unusual Bridge Options - 06-11-2019, 02:12 PM

FYI, I just posted the following new video on YouTube:

NV J.22 – Top 10 Creative Billiards Bridge Options

Check it out. It demonstrates the following creative, unusual, and useful hand and mechanical bridge options:

1 – Elevated Hand Bridge
2 – Thigh Bridge
3 – Air Bridge
4 – Sliding-Butt Bridge
5 – Mechanical Bridge with Normal Stroke
6 – Vertical Mechanical Bridge
7 – Stacked Mechanical Bridges
8 – Hand-Elevated Mechanical Bridge
9 – Hand-Bridge on Mechanical Bridge Head
10 – Hand-Bridge on Mechanical Bridge Stick

Which do you guys like the best? Are there any that you had not seen before? A few of these have been discussed in recent threads, and I got some additional ideas from Bob Jewett.

Enjoy, and thanks in advance for any feedback or comments,
Dave

I have links in the YouTube video description showing pros using some of these techniques. If anybody knows of or finds (now or in the future) any other examples, please post links in this thread. They would be fun to see, and I will add the links to the others.

Thanks,
Dave

Good and creative stuff and I trust all is somehow technically within the rules...but if your feet or ass are on my table you'll be asked to leave.

The one I remember is SVB jumping with two bridges in the finals of the US Open.

9 and 10 are definitely questionable (at best) since the bridge is being used for an unintended purpose, as discussed in recent threads.

What if I take off my shoes and wear thicker pants on my ass?

If you can find it, please post a time-stamp link. Do you remember the opponent, and was it this year? If so, I can try to find it.

Thanks,
Dave

Thank you. They were fun (and educational) for me to practice also. FYI, I didn't hit every one perfectly the first time (except for the misses that I showed ... they only took 1 "take").

Catch you later,
Dave

Thanks. I learned a few things also when I was doing research for the video. Bob Jewett taught me a couple over the phone.

I like that one too. The "Bullshit Bridge" is a close second for me.

Thanks to everybody for the comments and feedback,

That shot/bridge right after the “sliding butt bridge” (or just #2) is very crafty and useful. And I think those last 2 were pretty dang cool, legal or otherwise

A very good video -- quite good, in fact -- even if the narrator (Dr. Dave) sounds like a GPS / navigator monotone voice.

Learned a couple bridge techniques from this video, which made me go.... "Recalculating!"

I think this is it, shot #2.

I can’t time stamp on my phone, but here’s the link: https://youtu.be/KNVlt3wBwco

Edit here’s a better one, about 3 min in: https://youtu.be/jwuf6kbA2YM

It was 2014 US Open finals against Orcollo.
