I remember reading Cliff Thorburns auto biography a few years ago and he spoke briefly about how he saw the balls as cubes and this helped him sight shots easily.
Unfortunately he never went into any detail. Anyone any idea how his system worked.
Perhaps one of you canadians could ask the great man himself i hear he still plays in the snooker centres over there.
Ocasionally on fairly long shots i imagine the ob has wheels either side of it aiming parallel to the pocket opening and then just let the white set them rolling.. i know how mad this sounds! (bet most of you try it out mind)
I was taught the ghost ball method early in my carreer but for snooker on tight pocket tables it just doesnt work for all shots. Any ob over say 18" away from the pocket and thinner than three quarter will almost always miss thick with this method.
I now, having hit millions of shots, look at the line of the angle and just know( i suppose sub consciously at least) where to aim.
Anyhoo.. what on earth was cliff on about and does anyone else have any imaginative (mad) ways to see angles?
