    Billiards/Pool

    Anyone play Table Pool/Billiards in real life?? Not Yahoo! pool or video game stuff like that. I play once in a while and I have a school tournament coming soon and I have been practicing for the past week. One thing that always bother me is there are situations when I cannot get to the ball due to the location and the fact that Im right handed.

    A simple diagram for everyone to see hopefully you guys can understand.
    White Circle = Cue, Black Circle = Just anyball (doesn't matter).



    Unfortunately, I can't sit on the edge of the table nor am I good enough to shoot with the stick behind my back. The pool stick is not long enough to reach from the left end of the table or from the top for me to lean all the way.

    Any advice??

    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    You could bounce it off the wall tipping the 8 ball in right hand pocket. It depends on how good you are thou.

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!

    I definitely could do that but it's years since I took geometry and I am still a novice, so I dont have that guideline for me to be sure.

    If we are talking about the 8ball specifically, it is even more dangerous. If I get it in the wrong pocket I lose.

    Since the 8 ball is so close to the bottom right hole, you could actually hit the cue towards the wall on the left to come back across a second time and knock in the 8. The chances of making that are actually pretty high.

    Just remember your angles and you could probably sink that right into that pocket looks like a 15 degree angle to me, with a not so hard hit.

    THE RULES!
