We have all played,and the cue ball seemed be possesed dancing with speed,hitting the break just right,dropping the object ball,and leaving the position we wanted.. Bob called this being in the groove.But where does being in the groove start,in the wrist,in the grip in the elbow,in the shoulder Because sometimes,same cue,same table same arm,and a dead game...comments please /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

(Most) everything but the dropping of the object ball is within your control. The (Most) is because no matter how well you control the cue ball, other balls may interfere. The magical days are just that, magical.

If you aren't having the magical breaks as often as you want to then just keep trying to hit exactly where you are aiming and getting the rock to react exactly as you want it to you (adding speed/power until you can no longer control it). Over the long haul you should be rewarded because you are doing the only things within your power (unless you are playing "rack your own", but that is another thread entirely [and equally filled with magical overtones]. Right now I'm really thinking about starting that thread but as usual laziness will prevent me).
