Default Favorite Position drills/games

Does anybody have good position games that they wouldn't mind sharing? I recently bought the PKF book, and it's good. I need to work on my patterns but I flat out just need to work on my position too. There were a few drills that were in the book that I liked and I'm practicing but I was just hoping somebody had a favorite drill (or book reccomedation) they would share.

For games I bought Target Pool years ago. I don't think it's available however using a piece of paper is fun....make your own game.
Tom Wirth's Controlled Aggression has practical drills. (I'm sure you have the book)

THE BEST which is highly endorsed by jim rempe himself is; evenly scatter all 15 balls on the table keeping them away from the rails then take cue-ball in-hand and shoot them all in without hitting another ball or a rail. rempe suggests shooting this drill for two weeks and "don't play no other pool". lol..

Bert Kinster put out a video called 9 Ball Workout that had about 20 shots with targets for cb. What I liked about it was that the shots were ones that occur all the time in 9 ball, but also in one pocket. Lots of emphasis on speed control. He suggested using a 6 inch circular piece of paper. I used a dime. Aim small/miss small.

The easiest and best drill to improve your cue ball control is simple.

Put two balls on the table. Shoot one ball in and try to hit the other ball.

Start with the balls close together then start to move them further apart.

After you get good at just hitting the second ball try to hit one side of it or the other.

one drill i like besides the L drill and its variations
start with ball in hand
make any ball in any pocket
cue ball CANNOT touch another ball
helps with moving the cue ball in tight areas
p.s. check your pm

Use to do that back in the day but only with 13 balls. Good drill for working in space. Haven't done it in years, thx for the reminder.

Line up all 15 balls across the table at the spot and shoot them into either corner pocket. Start with ball in hand and keep CB behind the line of balls. Then try shooting them in order.
