Thanks for the video. I usually have a good feel for this backward cut bank shot and it's even harder to shoot with inside English.
P.S. Happy father's day to all the pops here.

Was that a "typo" on the last shot of the video? Did he mean to say outside, instead of inside english?

Nice Video Larry, "Bug" probably had MORE natural talent for pool than just about anyone I've seen play!

If this was my game ball and I could shoot it with no consideration to where the cueball went, I would shoot it with inside also.

Tough to tell what Bugs actually hit it with from the video.

Dear "washin' your clothes on a rock at the river" Breath,

In all seriousness I cannot tell for certain what he hit the last shot with. It looks like outside (right) even though he said left. I would still hit it with left (inside) if it was game ball.

Ohhhhhh,I see now:lol. It went back to the first shot at the end of the vid. I'm thinking he just missspoke. There is no reason in the world as to why he or anyone would use inside on a shot like that. You would be making the shot much harder than it already is.Outside will help with this type of shot.

Just so we're clear: what do you think he hit this shot with? Right (outside) or left (inside).

If you had been paying attention either of the times you were in the 7th grade you would have understood that I can't really tell what he hit it with.

Since I have had the pleasure of him shooting this shot on me with impunity, I can for sure tell you that he uses extreme outside on these shots. Does anyone remember when I posted in that thread with a ball on the spot and the cue ball in the back pocket, when I said that bumping the ob ball over to the long rail and letting the cue ball fall to the short rail was a stiff against top bankers like
Bugs because they will turn the ball back into the pocket.

I'm pretty sure that he hit the first deep cut shot with outside but could also be done with inside. The second shot, the straight back underneath him was definitely done with outside. I doubt that that one could be done with inside from that location. What do think John about that second bank, is it even possible to be done with inside?
