Great jump draw shot he had that slow speed high rev action so he got the extra hook. Strong shot.

Just to clarify, it was annouced and written in the article that he used left english (spin ), but he used right based on the action of the cue ball once it hit the bottom rail. Understandable to make a slight mistake when announcing it live, but why was this not corrected in the article???? Mark does an excellent job announcing and this is in no way saying anything against him, just the editor of the artilcle.

Great shot under pressure, Efren's the greatest! And he is the master of creativity, I love watching him shoot. Rep to the OP.

C'mon, Dave, Efren doesn't have to obey the laws of physics. He hit it with left, but when the ball was airborne it did a somersault and landed with right spin. (Probably learned it from HH.)

I think it's hard to say if there was any english on the shot; the CB will pick up a lil right spin from glancing off the OB. I dunno.

Maybe, but after traveling the distance the cue ball traveled, at the speed it traveled, my opinion is that any minimal spin because of the glance should have been used up by the time it hit the rail. No matter, it was a great shot and I have not seen it before so I was happy to be pointed to the link. But the direction the cue ball went after it hit the rail was definitely caused by right spin, so I thought I'd point it out.

Hope you're well, Eric.

Dave

This is exactly right, and in fact you can even see after the CB has landed and the draw has all taken effect, as it rolls slowly toward the camera it's spinning very rapidly. Most of the side-spin wears off by the time it gets to the bottom rail, but there's still enough to very noticeably affect the angle off the rail.

This is not the only one of these "strokes of genius" articles up on BD that mistakes which side the english was applied on. In this one, for instance:
http://www.billiardsdigest.com/new_s...jan10index.php

The article says a touch of right english, but the effect can only be achieved with left. With running english, the ball just takes off uptable; it's reverse english that's required to kill it enough off the rail that the top-spin can have such dramatic effect.

A matter of perspective when viewing the shot?

Andrew:

Not to be nit-picky, but when the BD article speaks of "Reyes drilled the cue ball with plenty of follow and a touch of right English" -- aren't they talking about "right/left" from *his* perspective? (Not our perspective, from our rear-of-the-table view, which reverses the notion of "right/left" respectively.)
I ask, since in the diagram, right spin/english on the cue ball -- from the shooter's perspective -- *is* checking/killing english off that short rail. Left spin/english -- again, from the shooter's point-of-view -- is running english off that short rail. And you're right -- with running english, that cue ball would've "taken off" uptable after contacting that short rail.

Could this little discrepancy of the "BD articles being wrong in the past about right/left" be merely an issue with perspective?
