    This is Bob. Soon bob will take over youtube! spread this to 50 videos. It will soon be on the news. then you will know you helped spread Bob

  2. great video! love how you say snooker ahaha 🙂

  3. follow is fowrd spn and draw is back spin 🙂

  4. Your closed bridge sucks!

  5. I like your style of teaching. Thank you much.

  6. I definitly prefer open bridge.

  7. follow is when you want the ball to continue in the direction that you shot it after hitting another ball, draw is when you want it to return in your direction afther hitting another ball.

  8. what is follow and draw?

  9. Fantastic. The best 9 minutes of advice I’ve seen. This is the foundation for every single shot. This and grip. But this moreso than grip. I’ve played for years, but I’ve never sought any instruction. This is a great start. Thanks.

  10. Thanks for the great input!

  11. thank you so much for this video. I love the game & playing it; even do I really don’t know much; but with your help & instructions I know this will help me next time I go play with my friends. thanks again.

  12. Excellent video.

    Although I do feel a few points can be added. I’ve played and watched snooker for a long time, and if there’s one thing that stands out its that professional players literally never use closed bridges and I’ve never met a coach that would recommend it.

    So although I can’t speak for pool (which is obviously different) I feel I can confidently state that unless your already proficient in its use, a closed bridge should not be used to play snooker.

  13. Yeah, I was going to add that, I guess you have to readjust your technique when playing with different shaped cues.

  14. remember the diameter of a pool shaft is greater than that of a snooker shaft. Bigger V for a bigger shaft.

  15. For the last couple of years of playing I have noticed I like using the cushion when the ball is nearby. I stick my two fingers round the whole cushion and the cue is underneath, kind of like a “closed bridge”. In this context it helps for both purity and natural feel and trust me, I am a cynic when it comes to a “closed bridge” so take it from me, try using this technique. In general however, I tend to use the open bridge, in fact always when away from cushion.

  16. I’m 17 and I have been playing snooker for a good 5 years now. One criticism I would make on your demonstration of an “open bridge” is that it does not have to be exaggerated that much. The primary objective is to get the natural feedback from the cue and its connection with your hand. If people work on the feel of the cue and possibly success of shots and revise certain techniques they would eventually find the level they prefer when performing the open bridge.

  17. That is the idea I was going with. Nice to have it confirmed.
    By the way, I just got back from playing with some friends and I did great (for my skill level) thanks for the vids and the recommedation to azbilliards. It all really helps.

  18. If it feels natural and smooth stick with it.

  19. I’ve tried both bridges quite a bit and I think I prefer an open bridge because there are advantages to it then the closed bridge and it just feels very natural and smooth to me.

  20. thanks alot sir, this really helps a newbie like me to understand the basic.. (Basic is Important!! Yeah!)
