Forward positioning across the table

Cutting a ball down the rail comes up a lot, and there are 3 directions the cue ball will roll after your cut. It can either go up table in the direction of the object ball, cross table, or down table. This drill will teach you how to go up table for position on a ball into the same pocket.

Great positioning is key to great runs. To keep the cue-ball going forward after contacting the object ball and then the rail, apply some follow with inside English. Just using follow won’t be enough because some extra action is needed off the rail to push the cue-ball further down table, giving you an easier angle on the next shot.

Important Drill 2

Adjust your aim on the first object ball since you are using some left english. A thinner cut is needed than if you were to use just follow or center.
