  7. DDragonlord says:

    Good Instruction. I wish it also included how what was described in breaking techniques is seen in practice. It would have been helpful to put everything that was said and see an example after-wards.

    so lift your head higher when your stroking it? well ok I’ll try that but I thought this was about playing pool.

    i cant wait to use your advice and kick my friends ass in pool. Your advice was nice good work. if i had money i would tip

    I get way more power holding the cue furthur back as that creates a longer
    stroke. Will practice leaving the cueball in the center of the table after the break.
    Use to go Kama Kazi with some heavy top. May not make as many balls on the 9 ball break, but also may scratch like never. Thanx.

    Great video man, very informative and easy to understand. Along with what you said I found one of the keys to a great break is practice strokes….feeling that power build up with each stroke. I observe people when im not playing…and your absolutely right about some people not pulling back far enough before they break.

    Im going to check out more of your videos I could learn a few things!

    Thanks for the video. Great information. I need all the tips I can get to improve my game.

  18. Cunelito says:

    I second what u said^^

  19. noobsluvsboobs says:

    i know this is irrelevant to this video but i still dont get the hang of moving my arm to use the cue. I understand how i need to keep the arm still and only move the forearm but do u let it loosely fall down with a flick to the wrist or push the cue.
    nice video btw 🙂
