    Try and get the Camera in a direct line with the cue ball and object ball for a straight pot. When you first get down your cue should be in a straight line through the middle of the balls and pocket. If your not in perfect line then you will cue across to correct this initial error. I would also suggest staying down after the shot longer to feel where your grip finishes at the chest. You can practice along the baulk line without a cue ball and find where your grip should finish on the shot completion. You can then aim to replicate that on every shot. I hope that helps a little.

    You'll find you could pull your cue off line to a point where you can miss the white ball entirely (not that you'd want to)


    Now... stand square on to the shot with your feet facing forward and try to do the same thing...


    You'll find you can't move the tip of the white ball away from the white entirely (even if you wanted to)


    The fact that changing your stance slightly can reduce the margin of error so greatly, shows that it is a very important fundamental and should not be ignored.

    Pure mechanics. But remember, the right technique is the one that produces the right result and can be repeated. There is no 'one size fits all' cue action.

    Personally I don't put much attention into the stance. As long as you are comfortable, have got your body down to the cue and you can play without your cueing being impeded by your hip or other body part then I don't see too much of an issue. I would say try and stand in the same or similar position on every shot for consistancy.

    Didn't know if I'd read that right Gavin or if I was missing something else?

    What if you are down with your body correctly on the cue, not impeded by your hip but cueing slightly across the line; I might have misunderstood so just clarifying the point.

    I was sent a handy little mirror recently which I am testing with cue alignment and stance which I think is an eye opener when thinking around approach to the shot, stance and how it moves the cue alignment and of course the old favourite.......dominant eye.

    Always interested to see how everyone approaches thinking around straight cueing.

    My opinion is that you get the cue online and then move your body to the cue. Many players try to stand in a certain way but then pull the cue into the body which pulls it offline. I always think the cue is the important part and the body is there to support it. If you concentrate on your body positing you can easily forget about the cue and keeping it online. Just my opinion.
