    Maybe if you could if possibile cut down on the refereeing & put more time into your own game? Just a thought.

    i always miss a really easy blue to middle thats just off straight, if it's straight, or quarter ball im fine, but if it's really close to being straight for some reason i just always miss, i think it's more psychological since i missed one a while back

    Yes pot a few in practice and take that into your match Joe.

    with the object ball around 2-3 inches off the side cushion and the white about six - eight inches off the side cushion.

    I tend to miss these shots to the far jaw more often than not so I have tried to catch these thicker so that they go nearer the pocket.

    What do you think Willie?

    blind angle shots. Cutbacks into a blind pocket.

    Dead straight on the black cue ball about 8 inches off the side cushion trying to screw back off the cushion,
    i always either miss the pot or dont get into the cue ball enough and the white finishes on the cushion.
    i never feel very confident when using that bridge where the cue rests on the cushion and youre first finger sits over top of it.

    Learn to play these shots with "Running side" on the cueball as it will help the pocket accept the pot more.

    These TECHNICALLY should be easier as there is less margin for error in your technique of these shots. Make sure you have sighted the shot correctly and dont be afraid of "jabbing" at the cueball and ensure a nice free-flowing follow through

    Now my good friend 1lawyer. A very difficult shot indeed. Forget all thoughts about going in-off and concentrate on the pot fully. I know you rate the ghost ball technique so try sighting these types of shots this way in practice.
