good stuff SJD. thank you.

are there any current world class players who aren't breaking off the second ball?

i have been tinkering around a little bit with a third and fourth ball hit - it seems to push more balls toward my long rail. do most top players like to hit further up to rack so as to not lose the game on the break?

Most do , but the 3rd. ball break can be very effective. :)

Silly rules

Silly rules

About these silly rules that you only have to drive one ball to the rail.
I broke'em 10 times.
1 Rack I sold a shot
2 Racks I slid to the bottom rail.
7 Racks I stuck in the stack. Of these, once I didn't get one to the rail.
I got two to the rail a couple of times.
This break leaves your opponent kicking all seven times.
I won't do this to regular players as it's murder.
Rod.
PS, One example below, I have more.

It's amazing what Houston humidity will do for a feller, Rod. ;)

I couldn't get that cb result even with a kick break on a rainy day in west Texas. :D

I played with it a few shots and settled on kicking right at my pocket with a tip of left English.:)
Worked pretty well on this table. As SJD said they're all different.;)

Actually the old Oklahoma break where you roll into the head ball works very well also, since you only have to drive one ball to the rail, You opponent is usually kicking after this break also.;)

Well I don't know what the standard is ? A cue maker who's kind of a pool nut and watches all the time told me Cliff Joiner breaks like I do.
Cliff didn't when we were playing. :rolleyes:
