Cue Ball English 101
In this lesson I am going to use the same shot and angle I used in lesson six. In the game of pool you must look for other options if there are balls in the way that will interfere with where you want the cue ball to end up. For the first time we are not going to use just high, low, left, or right English by it's self. Look at diagram # 1. This is your natural tangent line with no English being used. This is also a 45 degree angle to pocket the one ball.
Look at diagram # 2. We are going to use a combination of English. For this shot I want you to use low right English. Think about what the cue ball is doing in every step of this shot. Because you are hitting the object ball on an angle with low English you are changing the cue balls natural tangent line.
The solid line with the arrow shows you were the cue ball is going to hit the rail using Low English. By using low English you have changed the tangent line. The dotted lines with the arrows, shows you where the cue ball will go with right English. You have just made the cue ball go three rails to get position on your next ball. Look where the cue ball ends up for a good shot on the two ball. The low English changed the tangent line when it hit the object ball. The right English changed where the cue ball was going to go when it hit the rail. Right spin on the cue ball throws the cue ball further to the right than it normally would have gone.
In next months lesson I will show you how to make the cue ball go four and even five rails for your next shot. I also want you to remember this 45 degree cut because before I made the EZ Shot Ghost Ball, I use to think that every shot was different. Now I know every shot is not different. After thirty six years of playing pool I have found a repeated pattern to every shot.
