We have a major snow storm up here all day and still going on, so I got the idea of browsing One Pocket matches online looking for examples of a certain amount of extended end game play. Mostly these pick up with 3 or 4 balls left on the table and at least a few exchanges of shots and safeties before someone wins.

If anyone else wants to add links to this list, I am sure we have a lot of fellow members who would be interested! I did it by going into the tool settings so I could watch the matches at 2x speed, and then instead of actually watching them, I slowly scrolled through the time line scouting the thumbnails for stretches without many balls on the table. I would say in general the majority of games between pros end without extended end game play -- someone runs out, lol. All of these links should take you directly to the end game segments.

I suggest that when practicing with your friends that you should play the game out until the last ball on the table drops. Regardless of who won. This way you always get to gain the experience of the end game.

What a great resource, Steve! It's nice that we can all benefit from the weather up in the "Live With Snow or Die" state...;):)

Thanks for effort in putting the list together, might have watched some of these matches before but it never hurts to see them again As a relative beginner I can say that the end game has proven to be tough to get a handle on but I'm not giving up.

Online video links to end game situations

The story Bill tells during the Earl match is probably my all time favorite story. I would love to see a movie just about the multi day trip with Mike Sigel when the go into the country to play with this Earl kid that he'd been hearing about. Bill if you could muster the willpower to write that story in as much detail as possible it could really be something...someone could turn it into a screenplay...

So for us inexperienced guys, is there a collection like this for return-of-break shots?

No, but since every game starts with a break and return -- you won't have to look far :D

What you would like would be if someone edited, so only the break and returns were compiled into one video, right my friend?

Great links Steve!

Like others I am sure I have seen most or a lot of these matches but I am going to go back through each one to make sure and even more so, focus on the segments you posted to try and improve my end game.

good way to play to learn end game is race to 25 balls and you play till one player gets there. I like that you get all aspects of the game that way !

This is interesting. How do you play this exactly? Like straight pool meaning rack’em up when only one OB is left on the table?

alternating break one point per ball play till one person gets to the number
