If anyone can find a pic of Bobby Chamberlain's bridge, it is about as unique as I has ever seen for a daily driver.

Are you referring to the 2nd sliding-butt bridge with the grip-hand fingers gripping the shaft close to a solid bridge hand to prevent the double hit? If so, I agree ... that is useful. FYI, here are previous videos Bob Jewett and I filmed many years ago showing several other useful techniques for avoiding double hits:

NV B.49 – Using your knuckles to prevent a double hit and stop the cue ball, with Bob Jewett
NV B.50 – Using your knuckles to prevent a double hit and get follow, with Bob Jewett
NV B.51 – Using your natural forward stroke limit to prevent a double hit and get draw, with Bob Jewett
NV B.52 – Using a fouetté shot to prevent a double hit, with Bob Jewett

I hope that the next revision of the official WPA rules of pool is more forgiving than the current rules. IMO, one should be allowed to use a mechanical bridge however they want to help support the cue or bridge hand. One should also be allowed to place the cue on the table without keeping a hand on it. And one should be able to use the cue, the CB (with ball in hand) or their hands to measure whatever they want to measure (e.g., a ball gap).

Dave

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

It was 2014 US Open finals against Orcollo.
Thanks! I've added a link to the YouTube video description. Here's what I have so far for pro examples of bridges used in my video:

Efren Reyes pinch bridge under cue with butt push

Ronnie Alcano regular stroke with bridge

Kyren Wilson hand bridge on top of mechanical bridge stick

Shane Van Boening stacked-bridge jump shot

Dave

Here's another:

Gary Wilson elevating the mechanical bridge (rest) with his hand

I don't know why a snooker player would resort to this when they have all of those awesome high and long-reach spider rests. Dose anybody know why he chose to do this?

Regards,
Dave

With a decent jump cue and stroke, this really isnt that hard to do. It's even easier with the classic white plastic bridgeheads because they have a little notch that allows them to interlock for the very purpose of stacking them.

Not to take away what Shane did plus the setting, still awesome to see in a high pressure finals match in one of the largest tournaments in the world.

But give it a try, youd be surprised.

The reason is when the two middle fingers are curled under, the bridge looks like the standard hand gesture for "bullshit." The same hand gesture is also used for heavy metal "rock on" and The University of Texas "Hook 'em Horns" ... among many other meanings. For more info, see:

Yes that was the shot I was referring to, and thank you kindly for those other links. I can’t get to them from work but I will definitely check them out later.

Your time and effort has helped me in my few years of playing, I’ve got the VEPP dvds and they rock. Thanks again
