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
Has anybody seen other creative/unusual/useful bridges not included in my video. If you have a video link, please share it.

Thanks,
Dave

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?

Thanks for the link to the full-match video. I've updated my link above and in the YouTube video description.

Do you or others know why he would chose to do this when he has convenient access to those cool snooker spider and extended "rests?"

Regards,
Dave

Great bridge lesson!

#2, with the knee on the table, leg sort of folded up, very handy. I remember you doing this for a jump shot during our VNEA match. But the cb was farther out toward center table. You made this move look so natural, and I remember thinking...."Damn, can I even do that, I mean, without first doing some stretching exercises?" Lol

Congrats on a couple of strong finishes in both 8 and 9 ball by the way!

This is definitely an advantage of being tall and in good physical condition. The downside is the need for a deep-crouch stance to get my head low on normal shots. Bob Jewett says I should consider femur-reduction surgery so I can join the ranks of the "vertically challenged."

Thanks. And congrats again for beating me in my first-round 8-ball match. I was very embarrassed by my level of play, but it was a good wake-up call. I was able to win the next 6 matches to make it to the final round. My 6th match was a close call against a very solid wheelchair player. Talk about bridges ... that guy could reach everything, and he wasn't phased at all by a 2'-3' bridge, and he only used a cue extension once during the entire match!

Catch you later,
Dave

Nice thread. In my 60 years of playing, I've used a lot of those. The one I'm gonna try , real quick is that "Bumpin' the Butt, in the Pinch Stroke. I can hear them hollerin' now... Thanks Dr Dave...

I'm glad you liked it, and good luck palm-punchin' the butt. It is easier and more effective than it might look.

Regards,
Dave

We play Golf, every weekend, on a 10 Foot Brunswick Royale Snooker Table. Sometimes, when the cue ball is close to the end rail, us guys under 5'11" can't reach the shot, even with a Crutch, that Bumping Shot might come in handy...
