Effective break: Place your gaze on the cue ball when impacting it.

The key to an effective break is where you place your viewpoint.

Where do you place your point of view when making a break shot?


When you go to impact with the cue, look at the cue ball.

This will allow you to accurately shoot through the cue point and make an effective break.


You want to make a powerful break, right?

Where do you put your eyes when you make a break?

Look at the target ball, look at the cue ball, look at the target ball, look at the cue ball, and repeat.

If you are satisfied with the result, you may break while looking at the target ball.

Of course, this is fine, but sometimes you make a break that seems like a missed shot.
This is when the ball is not scattered properly.

Why does this happen?

The reason is that the cue is not impacting the exact same spot that you are aiming for.

This is especially true for breaks, which are played at a higher cue speed than in normal play, so if you are not aware of the proper bridge and impact, you will be off.

The best way to ensure a good break is to swing the cue while watching the impact point of the cue ball at the end.

This will allow you to hit the exact cue point you want to aim for and make an effective break.
Give it a try!
