View Full Version : Planning ahead

Jay M, in eight ball, are you in the habit of planning three balls ahead or eight? If you plot the route to get to all eight, do you find it particularly frustrating to change your plan as you lose shape. I find reassesing three balls much easier than reassessing 8, 7, 6, 5 etc.

I plan 8 to begin with and then up to my first problem ball after each shot. No matter how good you are, you are always reevaluating your plan after each shot so get used to doing it.

In 9 ball I evaluate three balls at a time unless there is a problem ball somewhere.
