You know when the tip ball runs cleanly into the pocket?
This is important to increase your shooting percentage.
What’s going on?
And what should you do about it?
Be aware of the rotation of the ball at the tip.
The right amount of rotation on the tip ball will stabilize the movement of the tip ball and improve the pocket rate.
If you want to increase your shooting percentage, you need to put more rotation on the tip ball.
What does this mean?
In fact, as you can see in the video below, intentionally rotating the cue ball will stabilize the movement of the cue ball.
On the other hand, if the cue ball hits the target ball without rotation, it is likely to cause a large amount of slowness, resulting in unstable rotation of the target ball and unpredictable movement of the ball.
(The ball is greatly affected by slowness).
In other words, the moment the cue ball hits the target ball, such as a stop shot (stun shot) played by Huri, the cue ball will have no rotation and the tip ball will be unstable, so be careful and anticipate the slowness when you shoot.
The trick is to give the cue ball a little spin (twist) each time if you want the cue ball to run cleanly.
If you do too much, it will cause too much jumping and curving, so be conservative.
Also, the slower the cue speed, the bigger the throw, so the faster the cue speed, the better.
Also, by deliberately speeding up the cue speed, you can deliver the cue ball to the target ball while retaining the spin of the cue ball. The reason for this is that by cueing the cue ball faster, the cue ball glides over the rusher (i.e., it is not subject to the friction of the rusher), so the amount of spin on the cue ball is not diminished.
This is why professionals don’t cue balls with a little bit of spin. This is because the friction between the cue ball and the rusher is greater, which not only shifts the trajectory of the cue ball, but also takes the spin of the cue ball with it.
Beginners are often afraid of missing the ball, so they sometimes cue the ball too slowly (so-called “yardstick”), which has the opposite effect. This has the opposite effect: it causes the ball to be missed.
If you do not want to miss the ball, it is better to cue at a certain speed.
