This prop was one of my long suits. I beat Bugs doing this. Eddie Taylor's number on the prop was he'd make it in 11 shots for even money. Making it in 20 shots aint so easy.
if you take away the side pocket banksMy opinion doesn't count for much, but this doesn't seem like a helpful drill at all.
IMO that drill would be alot better for onepocket banks than bankpool banks.Like you said though,It can't hurt shooting them.John B.Well I think that you should practice the banks that you would try to play position on the next ball. Because you definitely need to make those, and be confident doing it.
Of course every bank is worth practicing a little bit.
But when the CB is frozen to the rail it's much different than when the CB is 1 inch from the rail. And I think most bankers are going to look for another shot, even if it's a longer shot.
As for the 2 rail banks and the long cross corner, those are just safe shots where you are more worried about placing the cueball on the rail than making the bank.
Of course this drill won't hurt you, but I don't think these are the kinds of shots that the great bankers are looking to shoot.
And I've watched John, Piggy, Freddy, and all the other great bankers, and they aren't shooting these shots very often at all.
