Quick Draw

Finesse is an important factor when it comes to all games, especially straight pool and one-pocket.

Put six balls in an arc around the side pocket. Taking ball in hand, pocket the balls in order, all without sending a ball to a rail. The drill was included in Willie Mosconi’s “Winning Pocket Billiards,” but Bob Jewett added a bit of a twist. If you complete the drill, add a ball to the semi-circle; if you miss, subtract a ball.
