Last night at work I have 2 15 min break periods, 1 30min break period and I got the 9 on the break 4 times total and 3 times in a row. I was breaking pretty good all night(making multiple balls and good cueball control) and heres some things that I think were helping my break.
1. I was leaning into my break with my body instead of going upwards I was going more forward.
2. I was using about 85% of my total break speed that I can produce.
3. I was using a more inward stroke(kinda hard to explain). Like I was bringing my stroking forarm as far as it would go and then lean into it.

Remind me not to let you rack for yourself.....

There is a good chance that what was helping your break was the balls falling into a pattern when they were being racked. This often happens and balls begin going in like crazy even 9's

I don't buy that. I always rack for myself when practicing and I always am not breaking up to my potential. Plus the racking conditions on our work table are not ideal. Bar table with a old plastic rack, dirty table, dirty balls. Plus you should see some of the other guys break my racks, its like they think the balls are made of glass and they might break em litteraly /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif.

"dirty table, dirty balls"

I got the world's worst break myself...you made three
9-balls in a row, and I haven't made three in the last 6 mos.

But you should. The nine doesn't move if the balls are racked tightly, as with the Sardo. Your rack is loose. Exactly how it's loose determines which balls move a lot. You may want to get Joe Tucker's book about racks. He tells you exactly which balls you want loose to make or not make the nine move.

I'm guessing this helped with your control and consistency, and that you were breaking on a bar table. Nice work, keep it up.
