Well, JB, some of us hackers like to think that people with superior natural ability don't grasp how hard is is for us to take small steps in the right direction.

In my opinion the vast majority of people on the planet could never become shortstops with ANY amount of practice (and there are a few 12-year-olds who can beat shortstops.)

To make this shot you have to twist your wrist outward at contact, and pinch your first two toes together of your backward foot.
You mean I'm not supposed to be doing that on every shot?

Hit a little more of the head ball and get rid of most scratches.

Well, actually, I think that technique works best on shots where a guy wants the cue ball to pick up speed...

Bottom line for me I can see the cut angle better shooting to the right. Dr.Bill said you can reach more shots shooting to right pocket I agree. All you right handed players think what is easier to make a spot shot,I would bet right hand players shoot spot shots to the right hand pocket.
I would think the opposite on spot shots. I thought most right hand players would choose shooting a spot shot in the left corner pocket. I know I'm more comfortable shooting the spot shot with bottom right to the left pocket. I have started taking the right side more, just because the table may favor the right side and I want to break as good equally to both sides.

I sure agree about the natural talent part, but would like to see a 12 year old that can beat a shortstop?
