View Full Version : Trouble shots

Here is a particular shot which I have trouble with sometimes. Some days I make this shot 99 percent of the time and other days I only make it 25 percent. I don't understand because it's not a very difficult shot but some days it just seems like my brain will not process the angle or something. Here is the shot I am refering to: Cutting the ball into pocket A
START(
%Bf9H8%Pb8W2%Qs3B3


)END
Anyone else have a particular shot which plagues them?

This one bothers me worse than the others. I for some reason my eyes haven't let me make those thin cut shots. I just don't trust it. Now, even though my eyes are screaming at me that I can't hit it I try it anyway. Sometimes now I over cut it. I think that's better than driving it into the rail. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif In recent weeks I've been making them every once in a while.

Hi Chris. The shot you describe is fairly tough... I think everyone has trouble to some degree on this shot.

That said, I find the most success on this shot when I have a FIRM plan in my head for the cueball. I think part of what makes this shot difficult is the uncertainty with the cueball - and some viable potential scratches.

Once you are down on this shot, your mind needs to be completely clear of the uncertainties. You do this by analyzing exactly what type of english/speed you will use to miss the scratches. Once you know that nothing bad will happen to your cueball, it allows you to focus entirely on hitting the correct spot of the object ball.

Good answer Steve and this shot does need all of your focus.
