Lesson 5


By the end of this section you should be able to play two very important Billiard shots that require side: the run through along a cushion and the screw loser along a cushion. You will play the loser from very close to a middle pocket and should understand the principle of recovering a dead ball.


For this Section you will need to read the links on follow through rule,technique, screw with side and top.
