(D&E) Drills & Exercises - Pocket Skills (progressive): Long table sets - 1D Rail

(About the Author)

This progressive exercise to improve your shooting skills is in the book Drills & Exercises for Pool & Pocket Billiards.

This setup concentrates on progressive pocketing skills. There is no concern about where the CB ends up.

This is a multiple cue ball speed and spin drill. See Cue Ball Speed and Spin Variations. Make sure to observe the cue ball action (path from OB, any rail action, etc.) until it stops. You need to remember the results when you are in competition.

Instructions:
DONUTS: one of OB - one at each end of gray line.

  1. Put CB close to OB, pocket the OB.
  2. Re-spot OB and move CB back 1/2 D.
  3. Upon a miss, move CB 1/2 D closer to OB.

Proof of competence: Repeat 3 times without miss.

Suggestions: Start with a basic center ball at pocket speed (OB drops into the pocket). Then increase the speed up through Medium 3. Following that work with 1/2 tip out 10:30 and 1:30.
