A billiard table is that richest of metaphors,
by turns a theatre, an altar, touchstone, gauntlet,
ritual ground, a gunfighter's high noon, a refuge,
a verdant landscape for balls to scatter and rest in meaningful synchronicity,
a classroom, a karma dance, mirror of moods, a guide and trusted friend...

Center axis and what I call 1/2 tip high. Rolling ball no extra follow.

In any attempt to better Mr Spot Shot’s record, I wonder if it would be permissible to have an accomplice spot the object balls?

Doing it oneself (like Mr Spot Shot in the video) sure makes the feat a whole lot tougher.

You have to chuckle at the embroidery guy.

You had one job...

evergruven,

I have an iron clad rule I follow whenever I set up tough shots to practice.
Make the shot, it might be luck. Do it twice, it might be a coincidence. But
pocket the shot 3x in a row and you are likely to have it down so I use 4-5x.

If you don’t have a training ball like I mentioned, substitute any striped ball.
It isn’t as revealing as the semi-hemisphere design of the Elephant training
cue ball but it works. Got a 9 ft table? Take ball in hand and stroke the cue
ball from the kitchen down and back but not so hard as to bounce it off the
head rail more than a few inches. Heck, just play it like a lag stroke but do
It 4-5x in a row with no wobble or wiggle on the stripe positioned vertically
on the felt. With a stripe this wide, any movement (wiggle or wobble) on the
OB will not be as noticeable as with the Elephant cue ball but it does work.

You must stroke through the cue ball smoothly to avoid the cue ball acquiring
any wiggle or wobble. But shoot hard and CB speed disguises a flawed stroke.

Matt B.

Ignoring throw, a half-ball aim produces a cut shot of 30°. But with the cue ball on the head string one diamond from the side rail, the cut angle needed for center pocket is actually about 32.3° rather than 30°. The correct location for a half-ball aim with a center hit on the CB is actually a couple inches closer to the side rail (10.4"), plus maybe even a little closer to allow for throw (9.5" from the side rail for 1° of throw, 8.6" for 2°, 7.7" for 3°).

But I imagine quite a few people use that "two diamonds up and one diamond over" location and do something, consciously or subconsciously, to make the correct hit for the spot shot.

[the locations mentioned are to the base of the cue ball]

According to reports -- in previous threads about him -- Spot Shot Kenny often had a helper to do the spotting.

I'm at least a 751 and my response wasn't regarding when whitey is adhered to the kotex.
Maybe 752.
Or 753.
Might be 754 or 756.
Not 755 though.


So keep your nose clean keep it on a shoe string
With no opposing no undue disclosing
Nothing stale nothing old or decomposing
Nothing empty nothing bold or over knowing
Nothing more than tasteful reconstruction

It's on the goodness of our dime that you can function

This. The little bit of throw sorta helps.

Nah, I don't think so.

Different Kenny. I'm talking about Kenny Kiddy. See the video in the link. Kiddy made 1250 spot shots in a row. Head spot to foot spot. There are several threads discussing him.
