Learn how to add power to your break while maintaining consistency and accuracy. This is an excerpt from Disc III of the three-volume BU instructional DVD series. - Get your new pool cue from me! Pool players often have trouble with drawing the ball. I get lots of players in my store coming in and asking me what they can do to improve their draw. Before I show them the proper way to draw the ball, I first like to go over the mistakes that they are likely making when attempting their shot. The first mistake players make when trying to draw the ball is to lift the butt of their cue up so as not to jump it off the table. This is a very inefficient technique because of all the wasted energy that your cue is putting into the table. Shooting at a high angle like this also yields poor rotation on the cue ball. A much more efficient and powerful way of drawing the ball is to level out against the table. Shooting at this angle (or rather, lack of angle) will help transfer all of your energy through the ball. Some people may know the correct techniques but they fail to implement them consistently. I don't believe that any technique is worth doing unless it can be done every time. The best way to fix this inconsistency is to always start on the felt. Line up your shot using the leveling technique mentioned above. Next, stroke the cue tip on the felt a few times. Once you feel comfortable and you're ready to shoot, bring it up one tip length. That ensures that you're not guessing anymore and you can accurately hit the ball where you intend to. Some players will do all the above techniques properly but when it's time to actually hit the ball, they hit it just like it's a normal stroke. That player may sink their shot but the cue ball will not draw very far after impact. To draw the ball properly, you need to snap it while also following through. This will make the cue ball spin backwards after impact.
This will hopefully help you pot the cue ball less and land on your preferred next ball. Hope it helps! Enjoy! Outro music-. Watch more How to Make Pool Trick Shots videos: Hi, I'm Andy, the "Magic Man" Segal. I'm here at Willow Billiards in Hoboken, New Jersey doing some trick shots and pool instruction. So if you're ready, lets get started. All right, this shot here, we have the 8 ball hanging by the corner pocket, the Q ball is at the second diamond trapped by the 3 ball, which is straight across from the Q ball. The 1 and the 2 ball, the 1 ball is right on the third diamond line, right along the center and the 2 ball's right behind it. Now the 1 and the 2 ball actually block the path of the Q ball, assuming the 3 ball wasn't there, but the 3 ball is here, which makes it a little more difficult. What I want to do is I want to make the 8, so I'm going to shoot into the cushion here. Shooting into the cushion will, will caress the cushion just enough so the Q ball can sneak away from the 3. But as I said, we still have the 1 ball and the 2 ball blocking the path. So the Q ball will actually take a path down this way and curve, making the 8 ball. That's why it's called the banana shot because it's a path that looks like a, like a banana. The way you shoot this shot is I'm going to be aiming right at this third dot, and I'm going to hit it with a little bit of backspin. The backspin will kick in over here causing the Q ball to curve and pocket the 8. Kind of like that.
