    I don’t like to post negative things, but I have to agree. Suggesting a tight grip does tend to change your follow through and the spot you are striking the cue ball. Bravo stating the importance of your bridge hand being stable, but not so sure about agreeing with the bridge.

    There is no “correct” way to hold a bridge. If you feel comfortable closed then use it. It doesn’t matter.

    There’s a life lesson, kids.

    Grip the cloth ( felt ) inbetween the heel of your hand´╗┐ and your fingertips especialy your pointer´╗┐ finger unless your using the closed bridge, and if you are using a closed bridge tuck your ring finger under.
