Good advice. Something I definitely need to work on regularly. Reminds me, too, that I need to get a new bridge head.i know i am not good enough to control my cue ball on cross over banks going inside. outside is okay with the cueball. inside a little too thin or thick and the cue ball goes where it wants and so does the object ball.
too easy to leave him a bank there and lose the game because of it and dont win anything unless you luck in a ball or put one in the jaws.
if you dont put one at your hole this whole layout gives him great options.
if you cant hit the bridge well practice a few hours and it will become second nature to you.
if i played truly even with someone, i would rather take 8 to 6 and have to play one handed or with the bridge every shot and would rob him all day long.
