It also works well due to the template they are using - the balls seem to break up very nicely even when the angle and pace is not that hard.This is the most striking part of his play. He will often nudge perfectly nice looking break balls farther away from the rack and then work to get position just off the rail for the thin cut.
He doesn’t have to hit the ball that hard but gets a lot of action in the rack, meaning he can leave the cue ball in or around the rack and still get a shot because the balls have spread so much.
I don’t know how much this can be emulated because you need incredible end of rack position play to make it work. It also won’t work as well on tighter pockets due to the risk of missing the break ball.
