    @9SuperMonkeyBall0 no offense though, you know that force/power is not really the factor of a good stroke right? And besides drawing from that short of distance, a bebinner can just jack the stick up and do that easily. There’s a reason why? the majority of people here said that it’s not a good stroke

  2. 9SuperMonkeyBall0 on December 9, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    @s1llyvi3tb0i I? meant hard by a lot of power.

  3. 9SuperMonkeyBall0 on December 9, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    @s1llyvi3tb0i then in that case, it’s amazing how the 10-ball went from one side, to? the other.

  4. s1llyvi3tb0i on December 9, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    @9SuperMonkeyBall0 lol nah, it’s not a complete follow,? a complete stroke can never be “hard and fast”, it has to be smooth which is obviously not the case here

  5. 9SuperMonkeyBall0 on December 9, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    @s1llyvi3tb0i yes he did, he did it real fast and hard, can you see the 10-ball roll on the other side, if he didn’t use? 100% follow through, the 10 ball would’ve never had made to the other side of the table.

    i’ve never tried? pool… but I’ve tried backward English. Hehe.

    @pirocan1 Hell no! My first cue i bought had one. I hated it and ended up buying a quality playing cue and used the wooden tip as a break cue till I? could afford a real one.

    do you stroke a 100 times when you play a normal game of pool because i would make fun of you the whole time and i would probably half? to pack a lunch to play you or i would starve to death or die from boredom!!!!!!!!!!

    @joewizard100
    lol
    I guess draw? is too short of a word.

    The best things to gain from any videos by this guy are common flaws most people don’t know they have. For example, watch how? he readjusts his bridge hand while he is down on the shot, and then stays down and shoots. A lot of players do this, and it is a really bad habit. You really shouldn’t be repositioning your bridge hand without standing back up and resetting your aim. Also, you should learn a little bit about the game before calling yourself an “Expert” and making a shitty video.

    I just looked at one of his magic the gathering videos and the? comments are just like these. everyone complaining that this retard is out there teaching about shit he doesn’t understand

  12. joewizard100 on December 9, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    “backward english” Take this fucking? video off now

  13. KKisforever on December 9, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    you suck.?

  14. perfectshot77 on December 9, 2011 at 11:56 pm

    To have good draw on the cue ball press the shaft down on your bridge hand rather firm, then stroke through as fast as you? humanly can to acheive max. draw

  15. s1llyvi3tb0i on December 10, 2011 at 12:49 am

    haha yea, and besides, he? stood up after the last shot, didnt do a complete follow through at all

  16. pirocan1 on December 10, 2011 at 12:51 am

    my cue has a wooden tip..does that? help?

  17. DarkStyler94 on December 10, 2011 at 1:43 am

    nice man? nice ^^

  18. greebafiedrice on December 10, 2011 at 1:57 am

    lmao?

  19. clementino07 on December 10, 2011 at 2:11 am

    His cueing is really bad,? he strokes the cue and bam all of a sudden he shoots, thats not good.

  20. dshowmaker on December 10, 2011 at 2:44 am

    god…? bitch much?

  21. runoutman on December 10, 2011 at 3:39 am

    he’s right but your problem probably also lies in the fact that your? tip isn’t properly shaped or scuffed.

  22. runoutman on December 10, 2011 at 4:16 am

    for those of you who care it’s called english because it was showed to us by the english. everywhere else in the world it’s called side. and? to reiterate follow and draw, or top and bottom for you fish, are not english. only right and left are english.

  23. Nadrealis on December 10, 2011 at 4:54 am

    Well, when you’re drawing the ball, if you replay? it you’re essentially stopping the ball in it’s tracks and “drawing” a new course for it.

    Top-English, Left-English, Right-English, Bottom-English. They’re just terms used in the game. Just like there are special terms for the right and left side of a boat.

  24. fragmentCR on December 10, 2011 at 5:29 am

    Ok so if this is the case why do you have the terms draw and whatever you call topside over there if you could? refer to them as “english”?

    Why do you call it english anyway? It doesn’t make any sense. Left hand side, right hand side – makes sense!

  25. manofdorset on December 10, 2011 at 5:51 am

    why do you call? it “english”
    i am english
    over here we call it “left” or “right” side.
    to be more specific,its actually called left hand side or right hand side.
    to pull the cue ball back its called “screwing” or “deep screwing” if you want to pull the cue ball back a long way and to make the cue ball follow through its called “top side” as opposed to left or right hand side.
