Circular Follow By Eric “The Preacher” Yow

Circular Follow By Eric “The Preacher” Yow

In this issue’s instructional article, I want to teach you the concept of Circular Follow.  When I was on “œESPN 3 Cushion Grandmaster,” the first shot I performed against Semih Sayginer was a form of Circular Draw well known in 3-cushion billiards.  In our professional Artistic Pool competitions we have adapted such a concept to the pool table to perform the bottom shot in the diagram.  To perform the circular draw shot, you must capitalize on the rebound of the cushion and the effect that follow and sidespin have on the cue ball’s trajectory when a significant amount of spin is maintained.  As you begin to work on this shot, please do not get discouraged.  My first rule in studying artistic pool is to “œchange one variable at a time,” a lesson I learned from Rick Malm, creator of the Artistic Pool CD-Rom.  The problem with this shot, however, is that there are so many variables to consider that it is difficult to fine tune your stroke so as to be able to duplicate it with relative consistency.  Admittedly, this shot is not a hanger, even for me.

Cheaters Never Win

Cheaters Never Win

The Ref Stop
Cheaters Never Win
By Bob Hunt
<br />
Have you ever thought about destiny?   Destiny is a vivid force in pool.  You know what I mean, when you slipped and privately bumped the cue ball, shot anyway and missed. Maybe you accidentally moved a ball that ended up in a good spot for you and failed to mention it.  You lost anyway or gave your opponent ball in hand because of something stupid.  That is destiny for cheaters.   Destiny is Mother Nature’s way to make things right.  Maybe a guilty conscious or a mysterious aura is at work.  I do not know, it just happens.  Players that cheat usually cannot win by skillful means.  So if you are worried about a cheater beating you, just let it go and win by destiny.  Of course, you should let the ref know so we can look out for those characters.  I love to catch them.  Make my day!

More Kiss-back Shots

More Kiss-back Shots

Another standard application is given in Diagram 98. Again, remember to use low English. If the first ball were at a, it would be better to try a thin hit off the right side of the ball instead of a kiss-back. Not only is the thin hit (provided it isn’t too thin ) easier to judge, but the first ball is likely to end up in the vicinity of b, providing a good second shot.

It is unfortunate that Mr Gre Leenders a representative of the EPBF and the World Pool Association (WPA) would release such a misleading and inaccurate statement as he did during the midst of contract negotiations. It is apparent that the person responsible has been misdirected and lacked information. It is our hope that such a haste and inconsiderate action has not tainted the world of billiards.
Considering the current global economic climate and detrimental state of the billiard world, the production of a new event such as our Women’s World 10-Ball Championship would boost our industry with encouragement and that we would be a welcomed relief to the sport.
