View Full Version : Solo 14.1
08-26-2004, 11:29 PM
I'm looking to incorporate 14.1 into my practice routine. I'm wondering how I should do the break. I dunno if I should do the safe break as if I'm in a real match or just gently break the balls open. How did Mosconi break when he did solo exhibitions?
he left the ball right here START(
With a full rack of course. Sorry I don't have the link.

Well mud... thanks for the posts. Great question. I love the game and when i practice by myself i always use a side rack break. Being left handed i always break from my strong side which would be the right side facing the rack. that way i do not have to stretch for the break. But try different break shot at different angles from both sides. also try some breakshots from the rear. these tend to be the worse ones in my opinion. but then again i like side pocket breaks also. try different ones til you find 1 you are comfortable with is the best advice i can give you. i would be willing to bet that Wilie used side rack break shots.

mudball I would play it both ways. Practice your safety break. Many times you will have a shot afterwards and you can just start running balls from there.
Also set up some different break shots as well, like cueball said from both sides, from the rear, and also the side pocket break, to see which type you prefer and to see how the balls spread and how the cue ball reacts.

This is my favorite straight pool break.
Wondering what #### Leonards is?

You just basically want to be able to shoot with a shot you'll feel comfortable shooting without the fear of scratching. While getting a good spread. After all, you want to give yourself a good chance at getting a run going.
