    My Theory on Position Play

    From my book, my thoughts on position play. My Theory on Position Play I‘d like to say firstly, that, “scoring the point is paramount”, how you score that point is what this book is all about. No two players approach the same position with exactly the same solution, but, the end result will...

    The score is 1-0, your favor. Your opponent has left you in a tough spot, frozen behind a cluster of balls by their pocket. Your pocket is lower left. How do get out of this trap and stay at the table to run balls?

    Creating a draw angled bank

    This is a clip form my game with Raymond Ceulemans in 1998. In the priar 6 innings, he ran a, 6,12 and 6. I'm left in a difficult position here, and had to come up with a clever shot. I used a system I developed years ago, to create a, 'draw angled bank' to make the shot run 4 more from it.

    A Simple 1 or 2 cushion 'Short Table' Kicking system.

    I created this system many years ago, (early 80's). Here's a very simple numerical system for kicking, 1 or 2 cushions, to a point on the second rail or, contacting an OB on or close to the cushion, or even when it's along the connecting line from the 1st rail to the 2nd one. The CB requires...

    Not as good as Dave's, but, I was trying for 15.

    I got inspired by Dave's video of the 15 ball run in 1 pocket, Very Impressive! Since I haven't been in a pool room since Dec.10th, 2019, I have no recent videos. I rummaged around in my folders and found this one from 2014, when I still had both lamps working. I tried to run 15, starting...
