Thank you Mike. That one was fun to put together.

It's amazing how one situation, with so many balls spread up and down the table and with no clear, open, and obvious first shot, can offer so many ways of accomplishing the same goal.

Thank you Mitch. Looking forward to seeing you in Memphis.
I arrive tomorrow afternoon. Haven't practiced hardly at all.
All my time has been eaten up by my students these past few weeks

But I'll be as ready as I can be. You can be sure of that!

Tickies can be fun, but I find them hard to aim the path of the cue ball as consistently as I'd like. More practice would help, no doubt. That said, I'd like to see the outtakes for this video.
Tobermory, If you wish to see the outtakes you can watch them first hand by recreating the situations on your own and you will quickly see how predictable the cue ball reacts to these hits.

In my case the only outtakes on the first two situations where due to failing to pocket the five ball. The cue ball did exactly what was expected of it. The third shot took two attempts to pocket the hanger and a third to pocket both the 5 ball and the hanging 3 ball.

Test it for yourself.

I'll give them a try later today if I can get to a table. Your results are impressive, and I'd love to be able to duplicate that rate of success.

With practice, I know you can do it. In the process you will learn a great deal about ticky shots and find them useful in other situations.

Very nice job as usual Tom!!

PS in case you are wondering, I do not consider it spam — you can introduce your new videos wherever you want to here on onepocket.org — they are of interest to all of our members I would say!

Very good job on these videos. As we have talked about before, these shots are very important options to have in your repertoire. As a young player trying to learn the game, I would watch Charley Justice practice tickies and soft kicks for hours. I didn't appreciate the importance of these shots until he explained it to me. Then watching him play these shots with no hesitation when he was in action I realized that he could trap an opponent when the guy had most or all the balls laying in his favor. I was fortunate back then to know a few good players who would show me something if I asked. As you know, there were many who wouldn't tell you anything. The information that you share on this site is invaluable. please keep 'em coming.

Thank you for the encouragement, gentleman. Your comments inspire me to continue. There is a lot of work involved in producing these videos but the work is fun and the reward comes from hearing from you.
