maybe set up stop shots of varying distances, but each time draw the CB back to its original location.

Then it wouldn't be a stop shot, but rather a draw shot?

A good drill none the less.

He does but it looks phony. Says he plays in the NBA(??). No way to message. Might try here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/StxBilliards/posts/ Looks like where he may play.

Yoyo - 09-24-2019, 02:46 PM

Yo-yo drill is
1. Place a ball just off the rail on the 2nd diamond of the long tail.
2. Place one on the opposite long rail so they are across from each other.
3. Ball in hand behind the side pocket
4. Make the object ball, bring the cue ball back above the side pocket.
5. Shoot the other ball and then replace both and keep going back side to side.

Hope this helps

Yo-yo - 09-24-2019, 02:50 PM

Funny! I’ve been doing this for years. Came up with it on my own because it’s such a critical shot. Sometimes you come one rail, sometimes two. Softer speed can be tricky to maintain your slide and you can decelerate, firmer speed reduces the margin of error on the pocket. I practice this on the 3rd diamond for a while, then eventually the 3rd diamond shooting shortside shape shooting them past the side while going back and forth.

Very good practice. One of a handful of rail drills I strongly recommend.

Darren Appleton does a variation of this where he pockets a ball in corner, comes back up by the side and shoots next one i opposite corner. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgEZ...S7ksiU05qMk6EF Seen him do this both following and drawing. Great drill. Found another one: https://www.facebook.com/darrendynam...8425989774703/

Guy walks past the table while you are playing and you say "yo". You bet with someone whether the guy replies "yo".

I hope Johan doesn't get angry at me for giving out some of his golden knowledge that turns top players into champions

That's the initial setup. Two object balls are frozen against that diamond. Cue ball is in hand to start with, and you can make it little harder for yourself placing it closer to the headstring (or even behind it), or, vice versa, closer to the balls. The only thing is you shouldn't cross the dashed line on initial placement.

You start with any of those balls, left or right corner, doesn't matter. The goal is playing position on the other object ball. And you do it only by bringing the cue ball back - with a shot which is kind of a stun - to the darkened ara of the table, crossing the dashed line. The best way to achieve this is driving the cue ball to hit the rail between the side pocket and the first diamond to it.

After you make a ball you spot another one at the same place.

Basically this drill is a series of crossovers, rail and out for position, same stun shot every time.

[ If you fall too close to the rail you cannot stun the cue ball any longer, so that way your next shot is tougher because you must go back to the head rail and out with a deep draw.
If you fall too far from the rail you cannot hold the cue ball travel and might end up with another tough shot, so any significant error builds up pretty rapidly ]

I recall Fedor Gorst made something like 24 or 28 once. And the record holder, as per Johan on his FB page I think, must be Sky Woodward with 35 or 36, something like that. Those are balls pocketed in a row without a miss and with following the requirement - crossing the dashed line on every shot. How sick is that!
