    But yes it won't work on...

    Re: How do you aim at the rail?

    Deeman is correct.

    Since the OB and the QB can be anywhere on the table you can't use ghost pockets. All you can do is applied geometry using the diamonds location. These will help to at least...

    Re: Some rules for winning at 8-ball

    These tactics should be weighed more on your opponents skill level than on your own.

    Re: Switching cue's

    Here's my 2 cents.

    Consider this. Maybe you have learned to play on the wrong cues!

    Now that you have a proper cue you're having a hard time adjusting. Before you spend the extra money try...
