The whole thing is on YouTube in bits minus his interview which itself is incomplete even on the English version of the DVD

He demonstrates and gives insight on all the major carom games

Straight rail


Raymond ceuelmans is the current world straight rail champion last held in 1969 I think? Late 60s or 70s

Balkline 47.2
Next step up in difficulty
47 cm zones in which you can only make 2 points before moving one object ball out of the zone

47.2


Caudron is the current world 47.2 balkline champion last held in 2003

Balkline gets confusing
The ref makes calls to inform the crowd
Entree means both ob balls in the zone 1st time

Dedans means now you must make the point and drive an object ball out of the zone

A cheval is when object balls are in different zones

And there are even more calls for when the balls are in the small anchor zones
A cheval entree
A cheval dedans I think
Lou probably knows better these considering

The ref has as hard a job I think at the player
Calling out the score and calls lol

he makes a pretty damn sick shot in the 47.1 vid at 16.00 for position

Who would think to do such a damn thing lol in the middle of a big run too

clever, ballsy, brilliant, and then he starts walking that line
the great tragedy of these beautiful classic games is the success of 3 cushion

my favorite quote,

3 cushion has killed carom

The 3 cushion Players might disagree
Lets appreciate each discipline for its own unique beauty....... (y) :)
rather than say one is better than the other

Thank you for putting up all these different disciplines of billiards. Controlling both balls and the cb while falling within the criteria of each discipline is a brilliance in and of itself. It seems Caudron has captured the world title on most all of these disciplines, and currently the championships are not held.
In 14.1 a player could challenge the current world champion, if qualified. Possibly this is a solution.

But in 3 cushion, is the reason Caudron was doing the reverse english shots because he was faced against a safety position, so therefore he had to go to the reverse english shots? Or, is this just the best way to shoot these shots?

Also, these cushions sure carry a lot of spin from one cushion to the next. For instance shooting high reverse and carry spin across side and coming off the second cushion.

Players of these caliber most hate playing on a pool table! But 3c players have had quite good success in OP. I believe Artie knew 3c, and of course Harold Worst, Boston Shorty possibly Fitzgerald, and Efren for sure, and the list goes on I am sure. I can see where it would be a great advantage.

OP is a great game for imagination, and watching these guys sure opens your eyes to think out of the box. thanks, Whitey

I just wanted to comment on Caudron caroms. I marvel at his precision in drawing the ball. I marvel because in pocket pool a lot of times a shot requires that you draw the cb straight back and just miss the the next ob you want to get shape on. It also takes a precise hit, off just a hair and you either hit the ob you are trying to get shape or the cb leaves you on the wrong angle.
He not only does this but also controls the ob ball to move it back into scoring position. thanks, these videos are an inspiration! He makes it look so effortless it is hard to realize just how hard this is. Whitey

From hoppe's book
The noted paragraph is what I want pointed out

After 4 yrs of playing it I couldn't break a 30
But I had no one to learn from just whatever training materials I could come across

Texas,
Those are golden words for you, for sure! Hoppe, I believe he achieved being a carom world champion quite a few years before he won the 3c title in beating DeOro for the championship. I believe DeOro was in his 70's and came out of retirement. I would of loved to have seen DeOro play. Of course he is left handed. LOL! Just amazing holding so many world titles in so many deciplines. thanks, for the golden words from Hoppe. Whitey
