Efren's New Break for 1p - 01-09-2008, 12:52 PM

I don't really know what to think of this

CueTable Help



He broke the balls like this in one of his early 1p matches.

Anyone seen this break used before. Its tough to tell, but it looked like he was using low inside. It moved A LOT of balls towards his hole.

I've not been able to duplicate it so I might be doing something wrong her.

It could be accidental. The standard break uses top inside, but if you're off a bit, you can hit the second ball a little too full and end up like your diagram.

Perhaps Efren was not satisfied with his 100% DCC 1P winning record, thus time to make some changes! :P

Did he hit it harder than a normal 1pocket break? Seems to me that he'd have to if he wanted to keep low english on the CB all the way to the rack.

Did he scratch his head afterwards? If not, it probably wasn't an accident.

That's usually a bad spot for the cue ball after a 1-pocket break.

I would think he just hit that break bad, like Patrick said that is the last place you want the cue ball. Unless he is so accurate that he can ensure a blocker will follow the cue ball down the rail.

Very astute Cuebacca! That would be a telltale sign another would be Efren sticking his tongue out. I would think if he intended to break in that fashion he would probably use low lefthand english. Philw

How do you protect against the sell out on the 5 ball? That ball tends to drift to the wrong hole.

Very unusual... do you know how the other balls ended up? I would think he'd leave a bank half the time at least.

What do you think of his chances of repeating this year after his loss to Alex P. in round 5?

Pretty sure that was the year before. In 2007, he faced Cliff Joyner in the finals and Cliff would have to win twice. Efren won the first go-around and that was it.
