It would be great to have that book finished! If this lockdown goes on for a while, it may help you and Steve turn your mind to finishing the book. At least something good will come of all this lockdown kerfuffle.Thanks mon...
...matter of fact bro, over the years, several different people/players have told me that I need to write a One Pocket book, or make a DVD, but I just never have got the energy together to do it......relating to that subject, here's an interesting anecdote that nobody here knows of...
I first met our Commander, Steve Booth, about 18 years ago, a coupla years before he launched onepocket.org....when we first talked back then, Steve told me that he was considering writing a One Pocket book, and had started writing down his thoughts to that end...we then discussed my collaborating with him on this book, and I started sending him some ideas, formats, content, etc...and then...
Somehow life got in the way and it never happened ...I think maybe Steve got the idea for onepocket.org, and decided to put all of his energy into creating this site instead.
Good shooting Whitey! There is obviously a lot more angle than I thought so it's nowhere near a kiss when playing for shape on the 5.https://photos.app.goo.gl/FBpg54h7TSGfZ71W9
I thought I would do the 3 ball cross corner bank for you guys since there is quite a debate as to the kiss involved when playing for shape on the 5. Then I just decided to keep on pocketing balls. Got a little upset for shooting the 14 so hard and losing position, so I shut down the video, but I guess I had a bank for the 8th ball.
But for you guys that can set this up, it is a good/fun exercise to see how well you can run the balls.
Just a fun thing! Whitey
duly noted ....of course you shoot with all those open balls. now
john babied the shot and turned a game winning shot into a game losing one. you only do that if that is the only way to not leave a shot on a tough bank if you miss. but if you are going to leave shots if you miss you dont hit things at pocket speed.
