    Default playing with side

    hey guys,

    im guessing this has been posted a few times so sorry i its a repost, however i really struggle to pot while putting side on the cue ball, i have tried practising certain shots with side but really struggle to get the hang of it and judge where to hit the object ball, i know the cue ball veers off to the opposite side once you strike the cue ball but i really struggle with it, any help is appreciated.

    Address cue ball one tip away from centre of the cue ball and aim for the object ball to go near jaw rather than centre pocket no matter which side you use and see how it goes. So if you're top side of the black aim near jaw (black cushion jaw) and if you're below the black aim near jaw (side cushion jaw). This changes with increased/decreased pace and with/against/across the nap and more side but the rule of thumb for starters is aim slightly thicker, see where the object ball goes and adjust accordingly.
    Faith requires nothing but blind adherence, whereas knowledge demands the continual apprehension of an ever expanding body of information. With faith one can at least claim knowledge without having to do the hard work of aquiring it.
