I posted 2 more videos, one of me making a cut shot with inside english. The balls are center to center so it looks like they can't be cut int. It took me about 20 tries. The draw shot took less tries but its tough getting some juice on my furry felt table. Its like playing on a rug /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif.

Hi Chris,

I was able to download and view them this time. I actually think you have pretty good form and fundamentals when you shoot. For example, on the end-rail cut with inside, many good players can't resist twisting their stroke during the follow-through, but you stay pretty straight.

However, you do swing your elbow out on the long draw down the side rails /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Hmmm. The WMPlayer on my iMac says incorrect syntax or some crap like that. Same thing when I save the file to disk.

Chris:

Did you see the streaming video on this thread:

The guy ran 95 balls. Not all of the run is in the video, but you get to see him run a few racks. I think it lasts about twenty-five minutes or so.

I'm suprised that somebody didn't clarfiy the "cutshot" along the back rail. It really is a kick or spin shot with inside english. I've been playing this shot for years. As soon as one learns the amount of swerve/squirt form their cue and cloth, it become a simple shot. Much to my opponets dismay, I make that shot anytime the object ball is frozen on the back rail. On my table (9 ft. G.C. III w/simonis) I'll make 4 of 5 on an average day. It is really an easy shot to add to ones game, and really impresses the un-initiated.

also one more note on that cutshot, work on it with cue ball off the table (sitting on top of the rail). Once you get used to it it's actually easier (at least for me for some reason), and even more impressive to onlookers.
