the majority of reds in the triangle. Gently displace three or
four from the cluster around the pink and black spots.
Place the white ball close to the baulk colours, allowing yourself
a nice angle on either yellow or green to get back down the table
towards the reds.
Play the colour first and obtain position on the red. Proceed
to build as big a break as possible from the position obtained.
The logic behind this exercise is that after potting an initial
red you will often find yourself with position on a low value
colour, with a requirement to get back up the table towards the
cluster of balls.
Obtaining decent position is the key to the break continuing around
the pink and the black, something which is not always easy to
achieve if only two or three balls have been dislodged from the
a further exercise, scatter red balls loosely around the blue,
pink and black as shown in the image below. Ensure that the colours
pot into as many pockets as possible.
with an easy red and working hard on your potting and positional
play make as large a break as possible. Keep going unbtil you
break down and then start again.
that hard work will be vital if you are to improve and develope
your game. As a general rule, playing and practising one hour
a day will maintain your game and allow for small developments
in your game only.
you really want to start noticing a big difference in your improvement
and all round game then at least three hours practise per day
would be required to make large strides forward.
