Billiards Practice Drills

Groundwork For The Master


Billiards Practice Drills can be deadly in their repetitiveness if you have no idea where you are going and how you will get there.

What would you like to do to improve your billiards skills this year?
Have you got a goal you want to master in the coming year?

We are not looking for simple goals like sinking more long shots or running a rack. These are well within the capabilities of a graduate of the Masters of Art in Pocket Billiards but true masters are looking for more:

Run 100 balls, in any order, without a miss when throwing balls on the table

Run 100 balls without a miss and without allowing the cue ball to touch a rail

Run 3 consecutive sets of the 13 Ball Exercise without a miss

Run 3 consecutive sets of the 12 Ball Exercise without a miss

Run 1 set of the 14 Ball Exercise without a miss

Score a 16 or higher in the 8-Ball Mid-Term Exam

Score a 16 or higher in the 9-Ball Mid-Term Exam

Shoot at least 100 stop shots, 3-4 diamonds apart, into the corner pocket without a miss

Deliver 20 successful stun shots without a miss

Successfully deliver 15 consecutive 2-7-2's, connecting the diamonds, and stopping the cue ball within a CD diameter of the center of the table.

Deliver 5 sets of the 2-7-2+5 without a miss, stopping the cue ball within a CD diameter of the center of the table.

Shoot every single lesson from The Lesson in order with five or less misses

Break and run at least 3 racks in a ten-rack set of both 8-ball and 9-ball (Doing this five sets in a row, your grand B&R average is 30%!)

Shoot 25 sets of the 4 Ball Exercise without a miss

There are 14 performance elements of a true Master of Pocket Billiards. How many do you own?
