  1. I think you got it, of course practice this stroke and see what kind of results you get, even mark where you cue ball shoule stop after making your shot. Cue ball control is very important and can make every shot easy.
    Good Luck!

  2. so when want d cue ball to follow.. one cue tip above center-a light stroke
    when want d cue ball to come back.. one cue tip below center-a hard shot
    when want d cue ball to move on right/left.. one cue tip right/left center

  3. You are correct, it this had been ball in hand in a real game, that’s what I would have done. Keep in mind that I was demontrating the difference between draw and follow through and thanks for the comoment

  4. hi, dean
    your second draw shot, you applied some English to move the cue ball closer to the object ball, right? why don’t you just cheat the pocket for draw shot, i think the cue ball will move closer also to the object ball, what is the difference?

  7. thanks for posting, very helpful!

  8. Is this chunky bit on the joint side? if it is this is a join protector, you can get them online to fit your 2-piece or 3-piece cue. Let me know if this is what your talking about and thanks for the comment.

  10. Don’t help the irish! God, they are hustling me all the time on when they come on holiday here!

  11. hi deans your really helping me in my pool game, i have a question. on tv the pros have really good cues. say like ralf souquet with a predator 2 piece pool cue, on the end of the shaft theres a chunky bit, what is and how can i get one?

  12. I’m actually not sure is there more sheep than people in Ireland, probably is !! How can I get your DVD? Me personally I am good at banking, or as we over here call it, the double.

  13. It depends on who you ask…read on
    Bottom English (or screw shots as referred to by the Brits)
    The same applies to every type of English you apply but trying to put the right amount of English on the ball to get the cue ball into the correct posistion is a matter of experience and adapting to different tables.
    I hope this helps, keep me informed of any improvements.

  14. Hi Michael –
    Thanks for the comment and I’m glad your game is getting hot, I have more tips coming out on DVD in a few weeks there are 6 new pools tips and other fund stuff to watch, hope you get a copy, and I’ll keep the tips coming with some more exciting trick shots…..
    BTW – I loved Ireland, just visited with my father in April last year, I’m told there is more sheep than people… is that true? Take Care and Good Luck with your Pool Game

  15. actually draw and follow are not considered english.

  16. great videos man. really helping my game.Will you have more videos on Youtube coming up? Michael from Ireland

  17. Yes you should keep the cue level unless you have to elevate the cue for a masse shot, jump shot or to avoid a push shot etc… In this shot I was simply demonstrating where to hit the cue ball when executing a “Draw Shot” which you can shoot any way you like as long as you achieve the same result. I do bend the rules occasionally but only if I can get away with it…
    Thanks for the comment and good luck with your game
    Dean

  18. Yes, a level cue stick is better for accuracy, considering the distance of my shot I wasn’t to concerned about accuracy I was just demonstrating two different types of english, follow through (top) and draw (bottom)both can also be shot with a level cue –
    Thanks for the comment and if you have a tip you would like to send in I would be glad to mention you in the next round of “Dean’s Pool Tips”

  19. Obviously you’re a pretty good player. But I don’t agree with elevating the cue unless absolutly nessesary. i have one of the best draw shot techniques around where I’m from. Sometimes it is nessesary to elevate. But don’t you think a level cue is better for accuracy?

  20. why on earth do you elevate the cue when hitting a draw shot? I thought you’re supposed to keep the cue as level as possible. maybe not completely level but you elevated way too much.

  21. Maybe you can show your dad some new tricks, keep up the great pool playing…..

    Dean

  22. Yes, I have a video out on “Masse’s” you may have not seen it yet. Check Veoh or Youtube and type in Dean’s Pool Tips… I hope you find it. This tip takes some practice hitting the cue ball with extreme down stroke english using bottom left or right english to create enough spin needed to get around your opponents object ball.
    don’t forget to chalk after every “Masse Shot” – Good Luck with this shot, it’s a “Game Winner”
    Dean

  23. Top English…. works good for “Rail Shots” not to hard hitting the rail and the object ball at exactly the same time, you will never miss if executed this way… keep in mind the “Table Roll” and “Straight Rail” both of these conditions are important when executing a “Rail Shot” – Good Luck!
    Thanks for your comment and I will include this shot in my next round of “Dean’s Pool Tips”
    Stay in touch and let me know how you are doing…
    Dean

  24. Dean great videos man. Very useful. Can you post a video with tips as to how to shoot balls that are attached to the rail and need to be shot into the near(est) pocket? That is, what English needs to be used, speed and so on? Thanks. Once again, great videos
