If you like to play Ring Game or Rotation, you know about spotting the ball. For those unfamiliar with it, whenever a player scratches the cue ball, the ball gets spotted (placed in the center spot market on the table). I’ve got an easy technique for you to hit it reliably every time.
First, you need to be “in the kitchen”, which are those first two diamonds on the long side of the table. The technique is go up to the far edge of the Kitchen (the second diamond up on the longer rail) and one diamond up from the corner pocket.
Now that you’ve got your cue ball placed exactly where you want it, it’s time to aim for the object ball that’s been spotted. Aim for the far edge of the object ball with the very center of the cue ball. You’re not shooting this ball like a normal shot. You’re not trying to make contact there, but rather you are aiming specifically at the edge of the object ball.
You’re basically splitting the cue ball directly in half with the edge of the object ball. Take your shot. With some practice, you should be able to get nearly 100% success with this technique.
