Jump to Page. Search inside document. Such a deal! Now here 1 am myself serving up a predigested meal, namely, a selection of my articles and features from Billiards Digest mag- azine dating back to its inception in T'm not red-faced about it at all.
In fact, I'm pleased as punch, as Hubert Humphrey used to say, and I feel morally superior to the average recycler. For one thing, the articles were planned from the beginning to be chapters in a book.
In the magazine I was able to write about the game in more technical detail than I could in a general book of instruction like Byrne's Standard Book of Pool and Billiards, which also first appeared in For another thing, relatively few people saw the articles when they were published, and students of the game today would have a hard time collecting them.
In its early years, Billiards Digest had fewer than 10, subscribers and was not sold at newsstands. Compare 10, magazine subscribers to the 30 million people surveys show now play at least an occasional game of pool or billiards. There are 2 lot of people ready for something that goes beyond chalking the tip and drawing the ball. More editing, updating, and rearranging was needed than I first thought to turn my journalism into 2 book.
Diagrams were cenumbered from 1 to and keyed to the text. Among the repetitions that were pared down were reference: to Robert Jewett, Ph. The misconceptions he has swept fror: my mind over the years would fill a book as lacge as chis, Thani you, Bob.
While the book is aimed mainly at experienced players, ther is plenty here for neophytes as well. Parts of the book even your gran. Then, too, players rely on instinct rather than analysis maybe including granr might be thrown off by learning about the physics of the gar at least initially. My career as a billiard journalist started in when f Newby, a billiard room owner in Philadelphia, started mailing publishing seems too grand a term a small newspaper on game.
Newby was a sweetheart of a man, bot he bad no b. His early issues were fountains of typographical errors, misspellings, and syntactical muddles. I used to Jook at them in awe, wondering if a bomb had gone off in the printing plant.
A lesson for us all. He provided a way for players, tournament promoters, man- ufacturers, dealers, wholesalers, and just plain fans to communi- cate with each other and find out what was going on. I salute him. He would be amazed to see how many billiard publications there are now; almost every tavern league has at least a newsletter. Writers have to eat just like people who work for a living. In Bowlers journal spun off the handsome, profes- sionally edited Billiards Digest, from whose pages this book is drawn.
For the first time in history, pool fans could open a mag- azine and see photos of players, equipment, and rooms in full color.
Poot is in boom times, make no mistake about it. New rooms, especially of the upscale variety, are opening everywhere, and tournaments of all kinds are growing in terms of entrants, spec- tators, and prize funds.
A Gallup survey shows that there are as many pool players as joggers, a fact that surprises people who have never had to swerve to avoid a pool player. The advertising industry suddenly loves pool. Pool is in. Pool is chic. Television networks, though, with the partial exception ' ESPN, have yet to notice how the recreational landscape h:- changed.
When they do, there is no telling what dizzying heigh: the game will attain. One would think that after years there would be agree. In other words, take even what J say with a grain of salt. You have to develop your own style of play, which means finding out what works best for you. The point is so obvious it seems unnecessary to state it. Watch 50 top players in a tournament and you will see a wide variety of postures. Forget all that stuff about facing the sor with your hand at your hip, taking a half-step forward, turning 45 degrees, ete.
Some good players bend stightly at the knees, some keep the legs straight and spread their feet wide apart; some balance their weight evenly, some put more on the forward foot; some put quite a bit of weight on the bridge band, some hardly any; some turn almost sideways, some face the shot more squarely. What should you do?
Whateve: feels right. There is 10 correct way to stand. Notice, though, that all the snooker professionals, who play a game where accuracy of hit is all-important, lean down so far that their chins are on the cue. The three-cushion champions, on the other hand, who are more concerned with carom and rebound angles, stand up straighter. That obses vation leads me to think that pool players who need a precise hit shoulc crouch low and aim the cue like a rifle, the way the snooker players dc Missing shots you normally make?
Are you in a slump? Try leaning dow- more, Because of laziness of fatigue, players sometimes don't bend over 2 much as they should. The bridge. All you have to do is provide a support for the cue thy enables it to move back and forth without wobbling from side to side.
It -: up to you to find 2 comfurtable way to hold your fingers. Should there be a space between the cue and your fingers? Should you hold it with just two fingers or all five?
Should the wrist be loose or locked? People write and phone to ask me such questions. Hold the cue any way that feels right to you and ignore all other advice, including mine. A sprinkling of great pool and billiard players, Al Gilbert among them, use a slip stroke, in which the hand takes a new grip just before the trigger is pulled. The stroke. A lot of mythology surrounds the stroke. Some players believe that uncanny, mystical effects are possible with one kind of stroke or another.
A loose wrist, it has been claimed, will make the cueball do one thing, while a locked wrist on the same shot will make it do another.
Not true. A long follow-through does one thing, a check stroke another. Use a tight grip here, a loose grip there, stroke with the wrist here, with the shoulder there, rwist the wrist here, swerve the cue there. Spare me! Here are the facts, and wouldn't lie to you on something so important. In the physics formulas that describe the motion of balls and the collisions between them, there are no coefficients or factors for wrists, grips, or strokes.
They aren't needed. The cueball moves down the table with a certain speed, spin, and direction, which can be applied to it with almost any kind of stroke or grip. Whether or not you twist the cue or check your stroke or lock your wrist or follow through makes ng difference to the cueball at all, Consider the follow-through.
The contact between the tip and the cuchall is almost instantaneous. But there is no particular reason why you shouldn't follow through, unless there are balls to be avoided. You can make quick warm-up strokes or slow; you can pause at the rear of the final backswing or not. As in the other fundamentals, you have a wide range of acceptable styles to choose from, Find what is right for you and don't let a teacher try to make you his clone.
What really counts. While good fundamentals and basic technique are undeniably important, other factors are even more important in reaching top fevels. What does it take to become a champion? Here are just a few things you must have: steady nerves; good eyesight; good hand-eye coot- dination; enough intelligence to learn how best to analyze an array of balts: a.

Optimization of a Billiard Player – Position Play
The following is a glossary of traditional English-language terms used in the three overarching cue sports disciplines: carom or carambole billiards referring to the various carom games played on a billiard table without pockets ; pool , which denotes a host of games played on a table with six pockets; and snooker , played on a large pocket table, and which has a sport culture unto itself distinct from pool. The term " billiards " is sometimes used to refer to all of the cue sports, to a specific class of them, or to specific ones such as English billiards; this article uses the term in its most generic sense unless otherwise noted. However, due to the predominance of US-originating terminology in most internationally competitive pool as opposed to snooker , US terms are also common in the pool context in other countries in which English is at least a minority language, and US and borrowed French terms predominate in carom billiards. Similarly, British terms predominate in the world of snooker, English billiards and blackball, regardless of the players' nationalities. The term "blackball" is used in this glossary to refer to both blackball and eight-ball pool as played in the UK as a shorthand.
Today we're going to tell you all about cue ball control. First, we're going to learn how to identify tangents. Then we're going to talk about side spin, and how to use it to our advantage. And lastly we're going to do some exercises and a few drills for Valerie to improve her game and help you guys in the same way.

Беккер повернулся и увидел человека в красном одеянии. Тот вскрикнул и испуганно посмотрел на Беккера. Как кот, пойманный с канарейкой в зубах, святой отец вытер губы и безуспешно попытался прикрыть разбившуюся бутылку вина для святого причастия. - Salida! - крикнул Беккер. - Salida.
