Black Belt Billiards: Cue Ball Control. ~ Hurricane Wayne Jenkins

In the last edition of Black Belt Billiards, we started working to increase our ball pocketing skills with a game called Straight Pool.

How did you score? Post your score on our Facebook Group here. You should continually see your scores increase week after week as you make this game part of your daily practice session.

This time we are going to start working on our cue ball control. We will take the focus off of ball pocketing by placing the object ball near the pocket and focus on cue ball angles off of the rail and cue ball speed to a targeted location. For this game you will need:

  1. The cue ball

  2. The 1, 2, 3, and 4 balls

  3. Three sheets of 8.5 x 11 notebook or printer paper.

  4. Scotch tape ( will keep target from moving )
