Watching Parica play Cliff Thorburn at Miz's Senior Tour event, breaking from the edge of the break box, he routinely moved the 9 toward the foot corner pocket, setting up 4 early combo outs on the 9 in a row as part of his 10-4 win.

I mentioned that at the ph, and someone remembered watching a televised match where Parica did this same thing, to where the announcers mentioned how consistently he was getting that done.

How does one move the 9 on the break that way? The same way it is said that you can get better odds to make the 9 on the break, which is, breaking from the side, hitting more toward the top of the 1 than full on?

Does anyone other than Parica do this regularly?

I remember Parica doing this during the 1997 Legends of 9-Ball at Commerce Casino. Supposedly, he and Luat devised their break to smack the one-ball to the side and move the nine really well. I believe breaking from the right rail he was using low-right on the cueball.
