Welcome to Pool for Beginners.com

Have you ever had this fantasy?.....

So you won the coin toss and get to break. You chalk up the stick, take a few practice strokes, nice and smooth, and then... WHACK! The balls fly all over the table...the 4 ball drops into the corner pocket. A high ball goes in too.

Alright, you've got your choice of solids or stripes. Let's see...the low balls are pretty well spread out. There's a couple of striped balls that are bunched up along the rail and sitting at a weird angle. You see a solid 2 ball that is near the 8 and would make a nice last ball. That's it, you take the lows.

An easy 6 ball shot drops into the side pocket...the hit on the cue ball sends it down to the far rail to pick up the three balls over there. The 3 ball goes in and you're sitting pretty for the 1 ball. In goes the 1, and you are careful to leave the cue at just the right angle to pocket the 7, and still get some position for the 5 ball at the other end of the table. Perfect!

You cut in the 7 ball and slide the cue ball right through that opening in your opponent's balls. It ends up about two feet away from the 5 ball, at a less than perfect angle. That's OK, it's still a fairly decent shot.

The 5 can go two places...let's see...if you put it in the corner, you can at least get it down near the 2 ball, and then pick up the 8. That's the plan. You put a touch of english on the cue ball so that it will bounce in just the right direction, when it hits the rail after sinking the 5.

Here we go... the 5 goes in...the cue hits the rail...was the hit hard enough? Yes! The cue is almost perfect for the shot at the 2 ball. You slice in the 2, leaving the cue with an almost straight in shot on the 8 ball. You're aiming at the 8...this is it...don't miss now pal...the shot. Game over! You ran the table! Good job!

Could this be a vision of your future? Can you see yourself running the table and winning game after game? Would you like to be the one getting the pat on the back for a change?
