Default Bank Pool "Secret"

More than 30 years ago "California" John McCue told me "banks are all speed". I always knew what it meant and never forgot him saying it. I've never heard anyone mention anything along similar lines until listening to Freddy at the 2012 DCC Ring Game.

Freddy said: "To play the game correctly you gotta change speeds".

Now I can die a happy man.

If anybody ought to know Freddie should. I have seen a lot of players that shoot every shot very hard in the banks. I tend to miss more the harder I shoot. I will only shoot very hard if I really need to straighten one up.

The point is Pel, every bank has a proper speed with which it should be hit. It doesn't matter who is shooting it, how much he's stuck, whether he's up or not, the bank calls for a certain speed and that's the speed it should be struck with.
Many very good players never master this or understand it.

Hello, guys! I think shooting is mainly about using logic, as the proper speed and the strength of shot should be chosen. If you think over all these details you can reach success in this game.

I will try to think over all of those details but that is quite a lot of wisdom to absorb. Since this is your first post, I will spend some extra time reviewing these instructions and trying my best to integrate them into my game. Thank you so much. Meanwhile why don't you introduce yourself and tell us something about who you are and where you are from and what kind of men you like etc.

Dennis, if I remember correctly the context of the situation that initiated that response from me was that I had noted that non-real-bankers (like Shane) usually all start out banking good because they hit every shot with the same speed. The game at that point looks easy. But as the match progresses and tightens up, they realize that to properly defend one's self in pressure situations and play the game correctly, you must be able to make the banks at different speeds. That is when the accuracy breaks down for the non-banker. If the match drags on the situation gets worse.

To prove my point further, I banked a "perfect" 5 and out and a perfect 4 and out against Chicago Sergio last friday. The "make" speeds were adjusted to play perfect position on each bank. If I did that in the NFL they'd give me a beer commercial.

Freddy,

I don't recall the exact context right now but I think it involved a couple of the players who were constantly over-hitting otherwise easy cross-side banks and missing them short.

Of course, you're correct with the "change speeds to play shapes" theory. That's another part of what makes Banks so interesting. It's always a compromise between the best way to make the ball and playing position for the next one. Some top players don't believe in playing position at all, just make the ball and shoot from where the cueball stops.

Dennis

PS..Not tryna be nosy ma'am, but may I ask your age and weight please ? ... ROTF...LMFAO
