10 commandments of one pocket. - 12-14-2018, 04:53 PM

Can somebody do a list of do's and don'ts for one pocket.
Short and sweet. Not long and involved.
Something like
1- leave the cue ball on the rail for your opponent.


Playing cue- The Mighty Lucasi Cocobolo
Back up cue - Troy Downey

I woke up.
Triangles tips and Masters chalk are good enough.




The Truth: If you have a stroke the gear don't matter... If you don't have a stroke the gear won't help.

Here's one from Dan DiLiberto:

"Never shoot a shot that can lose the rack unless it can also win the rack."

A couple right off the bat:

1. Ye and thy opponent shalt post the monies of the wager before the first ball is struck.

2. Thou shalt learn to break well in a consistent manner for all manner of table.

I could go on and
do at least 10
but will let others go

Dont kick at balls on the short rail

Difficult shot vs easy duck should not require an actual decision

When in doubt, take a foul



It ain't no fun when the rabbit got the gun.

When you're unsure of what to do in a situation do something simple.

If the balls are laying good, and you think you can get out.....
...keep playing position for the ball farthest from your hole.


Lionize your game.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

When you get a champion down 6-0....make sure you run another 2 balls before you leave the table.

(I know this one from recent experience..)
