I've made banks a much higher percentage after you shared this tidbit on the forum and your video.

You can stop telling others now if you want. I'd appreciate it.

Thanks for giving us a tip, John! Do you mean shooting banks cross-corner, cross-side, straight-back, or all three?

Coincidentally there is currently a discussion on the main forum about the effects of draw or follow on bank shots.

Good to see the Banks forum being used.

Yep, draw puts overspin on the OB which makes it fight the pocket.

Default Brumback method

For those of you that doubt it, don't... He showed me how to make the pocket bigger, from anywhere on the table, really. However learning how to make banks and never hitting the cue more than a tip outside of center is interesting to say the least.

The only reason I use draw on banks now is to get the cue out of the way...

Just saying...

B

PS if you take what Freddie showed me and then what John did, you would think I could bank a ball or two... I'll take 10 to 6 against anyone on this site, except John, full rack banks for a 100 a game...

I'm still trying to understand that stuff you showed us a couple of years ago in DCC at Freddy's seminar. I was sort of distracted because after you warmed up, you never missed a stinkin' bank. When you were getting ready to shoot, I thought you were dialing the caliper on your cue. Later that year, when I met with Freddy in Chicago, he called you a freak of nature. It was a compliment.

I think I've heard you say before that overcutting and shortening a bank makes the pocket bigger. Is this the same principle?

Thanks for the tips!

Yep,It's the difference between coming into a small pocket vs a large pocket,but on the same table. I grew up playing with some of the best bankers in the world
and that's what I learned from them even though none of them could or would explain to me the reason they held most all of their banks. I figured it out on a napkin in a hotel room with a top bank player that I will refuse to name. I drew it out and asked him... is this the reason?...to make the pocket bigger?,and he just said.........hell I guess so John B.
