    @BTC141 how to play. not how to play skillfully

    You are wrong on that if the cue ball is potted whilst trying to pot the 8 ball and the 8 ball didn’t sink that it is game over. No, it is a free shot to the opposing player.

    these are just bar room rules. there are many different sets of rules when it comes to the many cuesport games. rules making bodies include BCA, APA, ACS, and a few others. all and all still a very poor video.

    How to play pool for dummies or what ?

  9. BTC141 on June 18, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    This vid sucks. There’s no discussion on angles, banked shots or cutting or using English, speed, force or kinetics to get the desired results. Waste of fuckiing time.

    This vid is strictly for airhead college girl beginners. The narrator is one such college airhead.

    this video sucks

  16. LVdancerbabe on June 19, 2011 at 2:09 am

    True. Thank you for pointing it out.

  17. thumbs0909 on June 19, 2011 at 2:47 am

    Sorry Statement at 1:15 ish

  18. thumbs0909 on June 19, 2011 at 3:31 am

    She is incorrect in the statement @ 1:18 – 1:30

    If any ball goes in off the break the table is considered to be “open” … The person who breaks simply gets to shoot at which ever pattern they would like. No Pattern is decided off the break.

    why does this person make pool sound very sexual

  20. FreshMoe95 on June 19, 2011 at 4:43 am

    i began playing pool yesterday and i already got hooked on it

  21. 73hhK41 on June 19, 2011 at 5:05 am

    I can only speculate that the table itself was lower. I can’t remember everything from back then. What I do remember is playing pool all the time at a day care I went to when I was younger. I stopped going to the day care when I was in first grade. I very distinctly remember playing pool, that’s when I first began enjoying the game.

    I’ll still agree with you, though. I was probably a pretty messed up kid ;-).

    You’d be surprised how many people don’t know how to play Pool, or even set up the balls properly.
    This video is very useful. There isn’t much more a video can do to improve a person’s game.

    2ndly, Kindergarteners:
    1. can’t reach over the table to hit the white ball
    2. can’t appreciate the game like teens/adults can

    I’d like to point out that: You were one messed up kindergartener… o.0

  23. 73hhK41 on June 19, 2011 at 6:06 am

    Well in good spirits I will try to be less critical in the future… I maintain, though, that this doesn’t help much at all. I knew more about pool when I was in kindergarten. Of course, I did always enjoy playing…

  24. mega17 on June 19, 2011 at 6:45 am

    @73hhK41: This is teaching people how to play, it’s not to become super good.

    It’s just basic tips for those people who just play randomly.

    i agree with 73hhk41
