  2. philipcwelch says:

    Important lesson but he never explains why you need a level cue. If the cue is not level you will have a tendancy to masse the cueball and it will not follow a straight path and will not strike the object ball in the spot you were intending.

    Check out Pool’s TV Network.

    what are all the different types of pool, ( the games)? where can I find out how to set up the balls in the rack?how do you know where to put the cue ball after you have made it in to one of the holes and you take it back out?

  7. Blindside453 says:

    What about putting spin on it? Aren’t you supposed to angle the cue a little for like backspin or keep it level and hit it low?

  8. Medsas says:

    if you shoot with right/left english, do you move your bridge hand to match the contact point? or you keep your bridge hand in the center of the ball and shoot “sideways”?

    This says BILLIARDS ??? lessons for beginners ??? LOL Billiards is a WHOLE different game. And a VERY skilled one at that. This is POOL. A very simple game played by drunks and Americans 😉 And that first bridge he shows whereby the cue goes through a “hole” made with his index finger has got to be the worst possible way of holding a cue for a shot. Bar holding it with your feet of course 😉

  12. mattdeshotels says:

    MrXeno you sound like an idiot. The type of bridge that it used by a player is all about being comfortable. I have never seen you playing BILLIARDS or, as drunks and Americans call it POOL, on television before so what in your right mind would allow you to judge someone who is giving a very simple technique that probably 80% of the players I coached started off doing.

  13. joewizard100 says:

    dude loads of world class players have that bridge. I my self use the snooker text book bridge holding my thumb on my knuckle for the cue to rest on. It is where ever you feel comfortable cueing.

  14. azbilliards says:

    There is a lot a damaging information out there for learning this game such as from this guy. Beware folks! Search for quality billiard instruction.

  15. Dalester10 says:

    funny shit :p

  16. ArcDodelijk says:

    lol sounds like he’s either drunk or american pretending to be a ‘pool’ player

  17. runoutman says:

    I agree this guy is a douche but carom billiards is just another form of billiards like pocket billiards so don’t get all snooty with a little piece of info on a subject you don’t know anything about

  18. runoutman says:

    what a good question medsas but I don’t feel like taking the time to articulate the answer

  19. MrXenophobe says:

    LOL Au contraire mon ami. Au contraire

  20. runoutman says:

    ok buddy guy. keep telling pool players how to make a bridge while you play with your euro taper.

  21. 49ERSiBleed says:
