Master Masse

Sometimes you need to curve the cue ball just a bit. Here, the 2 ball is barely blocking the cue ballís path into the 1 ball.

Start with the balls placed as shown. (You stretch a piece of thread on the cloth to set up the edges.) Hitting down on the right side of the cue ball, you can avoid the 2 and pocket the 1. As you master one shot, move the cue ball and 2 ball farther back, in the direction of the red arrow. [From Bob Jewett]
