    long before you started playing one pocket. Which way to cut a ball sounds weird to me. You should know where to hit either side.

      instead of which side, i'm actually more interested on where guys place the cue ball.

      i'm three fingers off the rail at the head string.

        It's more the latter, Bill. And of course that was just a generalization based on my own preferences. Eye dominance may have a big influence on it too.

          I put the CB on the line from the corner pocket by me to the OB. That way I can shoot a half ball hit. I'd rather aim at a HBH because I want to know exactly where to aim. The only time I change the CB position is if it's for position purposes.

              I've heard that for a right-hander left-eye dominance is advantageous in golf and baseball but detrimental for pool because it's more natural to put the right eye over the shaft.

              I COULD BE WRONG,,,,,,,,
              BUT
              from my understanding a a right handed shooter that is left eye dominant
              should find LEFT CUT SHOTS easier than RIGHT CUT SHOTS
              that player should fing he has a tendency to hit right cut shots alittle too thick
              the reason being
              when you cut to the left your left eyeis controlling the shot AND
              your left eye is also along the shot line and edge of the cue ball hitting the ball
              when you cut to the right
              your right eye wants to take over forcing you to hit the ball fat
              until you hit enough balls to get your subconcious to compensate

                Yep. That pretty much sums me up hahaha

                  I like to break from the right side, Because my bridge off the rail feels better. However... if the table is leaning the wrong way for me, I'll switch John B.

                    You'll break'em better with your bridge hand on the table.

                      I think you get a better spread off the side but you risk scratching off the corner ball more often. YMMV.

                        Not that it probably means much Larry ( just throwing it out there),but I am right handed and left eyed dominant. I have to shoot guns left handed but that's the only thing I do left handed.I don't have a clue where my eyes are over the cue,to this day. Like Rod said...that should have come to ya about the first hour you shot pool.Some of this stuff they come up with is just mind boggling to me. Just practice and never think about it...believe me....It'll come to ya people. ( Meaning...IE: you won't have to think and worry about it ) (inside tip) John B.

                          Little Buddy...you promise I will never scratch off that stinkin corner ball again? I'm going to work with it some. I have this feeling you are right Skipper

                                Ha! You're right, SB. I've said many times that I should have never started tinkering with my stance and alignment. I've improved in some areas, but it's also tended to confuse me, resulting in a slight lack of confidence. When a guy starts playing well, he should just leave his mechanics alone.

                                On the other hand with guys' different methods in their mechanics is the reason we hear statements like, "To make this shot you have to twist your wrist outward at contact, and pinch your first two toes together of your backward foot."...
