10 Commandments of One Pocket
 
What's the short list of most important playing tips for winning one pocket?

I'll volunteer a couple (that may or may not make the 10 Commandment cut):

- Always play safe, whether shooting or not.

- When not shooting leave the CB frozen to something.

10 Commandments of One Pocket
 
Great idea Patrick. Here are my initial thoughts. :)


1.The CueBall gets Priority!
2.Donít ďGo for one more ballĒ if it will cost you control of the table.
3.Check for dead ones.
4.Donít be afraid to take a foul.
5.Sometimes its best to just give him the ball.
6.Dont force a shot that you know doesnít go! ďIf it donít go... it DONT GOĒ
7.Donít be a hero.
8.If the safe is as difficult as the shot.... Take the shot!
9.Practice Crossover Banks
10.The best move is 8 and out.

Im sticking with the 10 commandments of love.
1.Thou shall never love another
2. and stand by me all the while
3. take happiness with the heartaches
4. and go thru life wearing a smile
oh how happy we will be if we
keep the 10 commandments of love....

I thought so too, but it's not mine - I'm just copying a thread idea from AzB that I thought would stimulate the 1P.org brain trust. :)

Sounds like you studied Artie B's and Jimmy Fusco's 1 Pocket playbook!

ALL looks good to me! :cool:

simple answer. play the shot that gives you the best chance of winning the game. and if you arent able to see that then all the commandments arent going to help you one bit.

I was going to finish with, if you arent able to see that, then do something simple :D

Adjust your game to the way the table is playing

With the lead, don't put in play more balls than what you need to win

Practice your break -- it is the most important shot of the game

Practice spot shots -- with 1, 2, 3, 4 balls on the spot

Make your opponent beat you if he going to win. It is amazing how many game are lost not won. I learned this from playing Frank The Barber.
