Regarding shots where:

1. It's a "dead" frozen carom.

2. It's a frozen combo which can be thrown in.

3. It's a "CB frozen to the OB" which can be thrown in.

#1 I learned from Fast Eddie Parker's tape.

#2 I learned from "Play Your Best Pool"

#3 I learned from an opponent who was kind enough to show me (after he had whupped me in 14.1 /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif )

Considering the importance of knowing these shots and the fact that there is somewhat of a "secret" technique involved, I think these should be taught at the first level of instruction.

I've seen Tom_in_Cincy give some informal instruction and I believe these are part of his introductory "lesson plan"

Wally~~likes to use "quotation marks" just like Dave "Dave" Barry /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Wally. All the above and a little more. Most all of us agree that these shots are essential to "rounding out" our playing abilities. randyg (BCA Master Instructor)
