side pocket break - 02-07-2019, 07:47 PM

any advice?

i put the ball in the center of the table, cue ball a diamond and ahalf up and about 2 balls of the rail

when i strike it well, the rack blows open and my cue ball is spinning from the collision
great break


sometimes i go through mental spats where i end up scratching alot, sometimes i break it open and get into double digit runs lol

Since you are practicing trying to run balls, i reccomend using a more traditional breakshot. Since that's what will come up in a game mostly.

Learn to master the different cut angles and controlling the CB off the rack.

I Agree the center table break is a lot of fun, but not very common to come up in a game.

Hope This Helps !

Standard is best to learn. If you shoot that center pocket break, try get perfect stun shot with speed. Cueball should hit middle of 2 front balls and give high chance to get great break. It rarely happens in game though..

I just was using that one as a opening break since it can give great results and help start a run
then ill flake out mentally and miss a straight in 1ft shot or get going and not watch my position and end up frozen to another ball with no shot
