He explains how important it is to get the correct spin onto the the first object ball (ball #2 in European-speak). Amazingly, the editor of Daly's Billiard Book said that such a thing could not be done although he included Daly's instruction to do so.

Hey Richard. I see that you've been reading up & practice lots of straight rail.

What's your average and highest run now?

I still don't have lots of time to practice yet. So I'm still at my highest of around 15 (doesn't come often as I wish though), average maybe 3-4. Practice makes perfect for sure.

When re-read my post, what I probably meant was, my average high series are 3-4, not my overall average. Overall average is way below that. Hehe.

My target for the rest of this year is to get consistent on "easy" (balls close together) shots: 1 bank, half table positions, direct carom. Then start practicing on gather shots, and rail nurse.

Around here in San Jose, they don't play for "fun". At least something is at stake. Mostly Vietnamese & Mexican players as far as I can tell.

You also changed your signature to mention Royal Pro cloth?

he shows and tells you need a 1 inch or less bridge and holding the cue at the balance point
gives the greatest control over speed. for the rail nurse
