Billiards Aiming Techniques

I know that aiming at billiards with precision can be quite difficult sometimes especially when you’re trying to pocket a desired ball billiards-aimingto go into one of the six holes in a pool table.

    I love playing pool, I just don’t get to do it as much as I’d like. I have never had any formal training, I just eyeball it.

    However the aiming techniques in the video will certainly help me aim better. Knowing how to strike the cue ball is obviously the key to getting better.

    It’s been a while since I racked them up, I sure do miss shooting pool! This is a great video and has very helpful info on it.

    The angles can certainly be tricky, he had some good points. I like the ghost ball analogy.

    The best advice I ever heard was from Minnesota Fats – make your easy shots first, then you won’t have any hard ones.

      Hello Scott! Yes, shooting pool is quite a fun activity. I still have trouble finding and pocketing the balls from time to time. But, all it takes is practice and dedication to get the move right. I never heard of Minnesota Fats, and that sounds like good advice as well. I’ll be sure to check them out. Thanks for stating that and commenting on this site. All the best.
