CCB Pool definitions and acronyms

Pot or Potting
Making a shot. Executing a shot at pool. Pocketing a ball. Most commonly used term by European players and commentators.

IIRC
If I Recall Correctly (used to eliminate memory failure)

BTW
By the Way

99CS
Book by Ray Martin “99 Critical Shots in Pool” basic and advanced shots set up to be able to execute if practiced correctly.

HTH
A Fred Agnir original phrase “Hope this Helps”

IMO
“In my opinion”. Usually used to disclaim any expertise implied.


I hope there might be more to add, its early and I just made this a first pass.. Please feel free to add anything to this list.. I will try to keep track and post often so we can all speak the same language BTW IMO HTH
