Agreed..!!

Playing 9ball monday, 6 and 9 close to the short rail
I kiss off the 6, lot of low left, carom the 9 off in the hole
Guys reaction was priceless

Isn't that fun!

A huge development for me was learning the correct rail nurse cue stroke from the straight rail video by a Colombian you posted not long ago.

The best way to hold the cue to minutely control speed was something I had been badly missing.

Just last night I wowed some pool players demonstrating the drill that Bob Jewitt advocates for beginners to learn speed control (taking at least 4 shots to move an object ball across the table to the side pocket).

I took around 50 strokes to do it before they got bored and I had not even left the middle of the table yet . I even moved the cue ball 360 degrees around the object ball without getting the object ball very much out of line.

Oh, man....I feel your pain! Itís all Richís fault. I would never have thought to try 1 cushion and it is a humbling experience!

Quick question - more out of curiosity as I will not be trying to win a prize, but am using this as an incentive, but does the streak have to start with a break or can we just start with a given setup?

I have reached 11 with a given start up position.

Yes, half pregnant can be a real thing.

Does not have to be from the break shot as that gets mich harder


In the lesson video on the front page caudron starts from the rail nurse close to the corner and gets to 29
Even he runs into trouble, but he knows how to get out of it lol


Good for you with an 11
Trying to get a 10 run a day is tough enough for me
for now
