But the Aiming Forum would formulate a hundred different ways to find the point on the object ball.

Perhaps we need to bring back the "Aiming Wars" thread?

No thanks.
Make the ball that you are on and try to get shape on the next.
If you want to dance at the table then have at it.

A hundred different ways to hit the point on the object ball - finding it is assumed.

I believe it was Alison Fisher that said "hit the point on the object ball furthest from the pocket."
Willie Mosconi was also a proponent of this technique.

I saw an instructional video about that

And it didn't work in Mosconi's time any better than it does now. Throw happens. In general, the point on the object ball farthest from the pocket is not the point to hit if you want to put the object ball in the center of the pocket.

Of course throw happens.
Take that into effect when you determine that point on the cue ball that is center pocket.
It's a great gauge though when determining a starting point.
Sometimes you have to cheat the pocket too.
I get that.
Lord help me, you have just sucked me into the Aiming Forum while not being in the Aiming Forum.
Recently read a thread about dancing around the table if it is a left or right cut shot.
Spare me.
Ultimately it's all mental.

Keep It Simple Stupid.
Pot the ball.
Shape means nothing if you don't pot the ball.
Well, the chair will welcome you as a spectator.

I wish the video productions of pros would show their footwork MORE if at all.
Look closely at some of the pros as they get into their final stance.
Often you'll see Very subtle, left right left, or right left, or left right left, or right left right movement as they ''set'' into their final stance.... to square up on the shot.
Do they move their feet a tiny bit back and forth to get settled in?
