To All:

I overheard some local players talking about shooting with misdirection. Has anyone out there heard of this?

Could any one explain what they may be talking about?

Thx

I think you'll get a better answer by asking them, but...

Many oldtime players would never show where they were going to hit the cue ball before they actually hit it. Kind of like Bustamante who addresses Cuba when he wants to hit Oregon. They were said to do this on purpose to hide what they were doing.

Or, they could be referring to lemonading.

Or, maybe they are talking about certain sneaky foul shots that people play intentionally.
