Definitely neither. They, along with Larry Nevel, have the most powerful strokes in cuesports, but not the best strokes. A great stroke consists of power, finesse, touch and an accurate delivery of the cue ball.

Best stroke today might just be that of Jose Parica, although his is not quite on a par with that of Steve Mizerak in his prime.

Actually, Sayginer probably has as much finesse as any pool player today. That's my conclusion after seeing him play balkline. He also plays 14.1 with amazing touch when goaded into it.

May not be the best, but don't know that I've ever seen someone get more out of their stroke than Buddy Hall. So smooth and compact, very repeatable and he never needed that long stroke to get the power like some of the other guys.

Point well taken, but billiards, though requiring a powerul stroke more often than pool, does not require the kind of speed control needed in pool. Admittedly, balkline requires better speed control than standard three cushion, but I don't feel it calls on you to control the cue ball's final resting spot with the precision demanded of you in pool.

Guess I agree with you, but only to a point.

Agreed, Buddy Hall's stroke was a thing of beauty.

If the question were most powerful I'd have to go with Larry Nevel.

But since it's the "best" stroke in the world...

Jimmy White. He had tremendous power, was able to spin the ball very well, and yet had top pro snooker accuracy to go alongside it.

He is no longer in his prime, but that guys stroke was a rock, he was a scary good player and one of the few snooker players who transitioned VERY well to 9-foots due to the power his stroke had. Few people I have ever seen look as solid as Jimmy was over the cueball.

I'd have to go with Buddy Hall, especially in his prime.


I had a stroke. I had it when I came in, I KNOW I did

There are so many guys who have an excellent and powerful stroke.
I would also name for sure Neil Robertson- this snooker-guy has such an amazing powerful stroke, really impressive.
