Today I’m going to show you a shot that is very common. Higher still level players have no problem making this shot. For the beginner players, this is a shot that scares them. Here’s a simple way so that it will never be scary again.
Imagine you’re playing a game of 8 Ball. You have the 8 ball in the jaws of the pocket and the cue ball has a little bit of distance behind it. Most players would just shoot the ball in and stop it, or draw it back or put the cue ball wherever they want. But what if you don’t know how to draw the ball back that far?
The best, simplest way to get this shot is to aim for the crack; the gap between the rail and the 8 ball. Don’t try to aim for the rail just before the ball or else you’ll miss it because the ball is too deep in the pocket.
You will never, ever miss this shot if you aim for the cracks between the ball and the pocket. You’ll make your ball and it’s virtually impossible to scratch. The best part about this technique is that it works even if the gaps are small or the gaps are large. You’ll make it every time.
