An Imperative Pair

YOU NEED to exhibit basic control of the cue ball when youíre in close quarters with the object ball. So if itís a skill you are going to need, you better get to work.

The shot on the 1 ball tests your capabilities to draw the cue ball the length of the table, within a foot or so of the rail. Similarly, the bottom shot on the 2 ball will refine your cue-ball control when you want to run the ball down-table. [Robert Byrne]
