www.poolplayers.com – Dr. Cue Pool Lesson 11 Lateral (Exotic Spin) Applications! – Sometimes a player must maneuver the cue ball in tight quarters or find it necessary to move the cue ball from one end of the table to the other, but finds it difficult to accomplish this with basic spins or even standard side spins. the use of “exotic spins” may be just what the “doctor” ordered!!

    hmmm…. do you know any snooker players that play with a closed bridge? Gotta admit though my stroke is way off so i rarely use open,

  4. gopper747 says:

    You actually see afew snooker players using closed bridge on occation obviously for hightend control

  5. bushputz says:

    Concentrate on having a nice, smooth stroke and follow through. Also, pulling the tip of the cue all the way back to your bridge and then PAUSING before pulling the trigger might help.

    Good luck!

    last week i paid $300 on a one piece ash cue in a limited addition case and i havent lost a game with it yet..
    Its not all about the cue, u can spend $10 and make a big difference..
    Confidence around the table has great effect..
    A good table makes great effect and no matter how u hit it on a great table 95% of the time it will do what u want it to..
    I can screw the cue ball the whole length of the table on through confidence.. Now the follow thorough!
    needs to be smooth and consistant

    I think with snooker you have to be so much more accurate that you need to look own the cue to be sure of the pot, pool players often have a relatively high stance. I find that a closed bridge adds friction though, just a matter of preference i think, though i can’t say i’ve noticed snooker players using a closed bridge either (maybe loop bridge though)

  8. hero12428 says:

    i am not a pro yet but i do practice pool techs every day and it seems that the friction you metion is only as tight as the user allows thier closed bridge to get. like for me my closed bridge has only helped me aim better at times and the open one can be too loose at times but i do understand were your coming from about the friction between the cue and the users fingures.

  9. hayato10 says:

    you’re right. confidence plays a huge role… like tonight i miscued on break like 6 times… i just can’t do it with this level of confidence….

    any tips on how i can better the bottom Englishes cuz everytime i do them, they just spin in place

  13. deruiter10 says:

    probably a better follow trough would make the difference for you

  14. drewmandan says:


    Lol wtf? That’s impossible.

  15. aznelf13 says:

    im serious, the ball just spins in place

  16. Shaggy30000 says:

    Either you’re not cuing low enough on the ball, or your cue isn’t level. When drawing, you want to lower the back of your cue as much as possible to make sure that you get an even hit. If you raise the back, you might scoop the ball up.

    Otherwise, you may simply need a better cue/cue tip.

    this is something Ill be practicing a lot. my brother is goin down….

  18. kevinleverne says:

    I would say about 80% of the decent players out there are using these “exotic” spins already. UNINTENTIONALLY. To be a high level player you must be able to strike the cueball accurately otherwise you’ll constantly be putting unintentional side on the ball. Even a little bit of side will cause your cueball to squirt, curve or loose speed off the rail because of it. Side is a wonderful thing but you have to know when your applying it. Unintentional sidespin=Inconsistancy in your game. Trust me.

    parabens are a lot of videos for hours pow

  20. lazymuthafukka says:

    According to doctor cue
    i love it everytime when he says that

  21. unvmygame says:

    High left/right, low left/right are not exotic spins— nor are they used in limited situations. The best players on earth use these spins on literally every single shot.
    Exotic??? Stick to trick shots.

  22. jelaelkeleel says:

    I just saw him live. Have you ever seen his starburst trick

  23. lazyall21 says:
