Or perhaps you just fancy beating one of your cocky mates a little more than you currently do. The goal? To spread the balls out across the table and, preferably, pot one of them. You can then stay on the table and continue with your break.
Fail to pot from the break and you allow your opponent in. Two things to consider — power and technique. Make sure all balls are touching and static and, cue ball behind the baulk line and just off centre, smash into the ball at the tip of the triangle, nearest to you. Aim for just above the centre point of the cue ball, make sure you chalk the tip a fair amount and really give the shot some welly. If you can avoid them, do.
The best tip we can offer you here is to try and avoid putting any side or swerve on the ball at all. You want the object ball hitting the target ball nice and flush. Each shot is different, so play it by ear. Again, practice makes perfect with these bad boys. But where are you aiming on that cushion? These shots are easier than they look and when they go in they make a pretty satisfying noise. Getting good, though? That requires cue ball control. One of the basic shots here is the draw shot.
You want to hit the object ball, pot it and then have the cue ball return pretty much to where it was when you hit the shot or even further back. Play the shot as you normally would, except strike the white lower down on the ball. Boomerang style. Most shots in open play are fairly easy to judge. Catch it too full and the ball comes into open play, but your break is over. But how? Have the cue ball contact the object ball and cushion simultaneously and at a medium pace and you should sink the sphere. The sexiest, most flamboyant shot in pool there is. Striking the cue ball hard and fast downwards, from an elevated position will cause it to move forward and bend.
There you have it. At least you will be once you head down to your local Rileys and try these tips out and practice a little. Share 0.
