**Choose the good parameters**

To make a shot, with a good direction of the played ball on the billiard table, U can apply some parameters before to play the shot

On the website of Laurent GUENET, I find a series of questions/answers usefull to do this

## QUESTIONS

**A** How do we get a natural shot of 45° ?

**B** For a natural shot how do you adjust the speed of the player ball ?

**C** For a one cushion natural shot what is the parameter steering the ball 1 ?

**D** With a direct backspin dropshot, opened angle, what is the parameter steering the ball 1 ?

**E** With a backspin, acute angle, what is the use of the quantity of ball ?

**F** With a backspin one cushion what is the use of english ?

**G** With a backspin, acute angle, what is the parameter influencing the speed of the ball 1 ?

**H** On a natural follow through what is the parameter steering the ball 1 ?

**I** - On a one cushion follow through what is the parameter influencing the speed of the ball 1 ?

**J** On a direct right angle what is the use of the quantity of ball ?

**K** On the compensation point, one for two, what is the use of english ?

**L** On the compensation point, one for two, what is the use of the height of attack ?

**M** On the compensation point, one for two, when the ball 2 is on the good way, the ball 1 get a good way too buy does not come as far as the ball 3, how do you manage to correct the shot ?

**N** With a piqué, what is the parameter influencing the distance covered by the ball 2 ?

**O** With a piqué, what parameters are influencing the backspin of the ball 1 ?

P On the backspin, acute angle, what parameters are influencing the distance of the backspin of ball 1 ?

## ANSWERS

A - half ball (+ or -) and heading shot in the ball

B - with the quantity of ball

by taking less than half a ball the ball is rolling faster and further and is less deflected on the side

by taking more than half a ball the ball is rolling slower and not as far and is less deflected on the side

C - the english

The amount of english could be 1 to 2,5 to obtain a deflection of 1 to 2,5 spaces between two spots (on the side of the table), this for a one cushion shot in the width.

D - the height of the attack

A drop shot is obtained by taking full ball, it is the height of the attack which is steering the ball 1

E - it manages the direction of ball 1

F - it manages the direction of ball 1

G - the height of the attack

H - the quantity

I - the height of the attack

J - to the speed of ball 1

K - to the speed of ball 1

L - to the direction of ball 1

M - you need to vary the speed of ball 1, therefore you must modify the english and the height of the attack to adjust the direction of ball 1

N - the tilt of the cue

More vertical, less is the distance running by ball 2

Less vertical, more distance runned by ball 2

O - the height of the attack and the strength of the shot

Lowering the attack and/or higher stength is resulting in more backspin for ball 1

P - the height of the attack and the strength

Lowering the attack and/or higher stength is resulting in more backspin for ball 1
