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.

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.
Don't worry about missing, worry about pocketing the ball.

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?

Yes, some do....I think Biado was on of em if I remember correctly, a slight rockin'/back/forth.
In golf I think this might be their ''waggle'' term.
To get their stance set, to swing ''straight thru'' the chosen cue ball strike.
This takes years to simplify, tho a few like Strickland got it quickly ''swingin Exactly straight'' through the cue ball.
