After nearly butchering yet another straight pool rack last night I found myself without a decent break ball and had a shot come up that I'd never tried before. I've been playing long enough to where it's rare that a shot comes up that I've never seen before. I've seen (and missed) them all. I made the six in the corner, played the cue off of the tit and broke apart a few balls and had a perfect 2ndary break shot. Blind squirrel...

That is certainly unusual. I've never been able to play off the tits. I have enough trouble simply with the rails.

But the real question is, how in the hell did you leave yourself like that? /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

How? Crooked stroke, no speed control, lack of concentration tempered with ADHD, bad eyesight, bent cue, no confidence, bad pattern play, too much beer, poor position play and bad fundamentals. But I'm working on these things!

I would have played it like this. You get better results hitting the head ball. Try it next time.
