Random Run out at Nine Ball
Short video of a 9 ball practice run where many of the shots did not go as planned.
Nine Ball Pool Practice Runout When Things Go Wrong
I still made all of the balls and got out but not as planned, nearly all of the positional plays were off line which makes the connection to the next shot more difficult. In isolation some pool shots are more difficult than other and require added skills. So when you add all of these challenging shots together it interrupts the normal flow.
Plan Your Route to The Next Shot to Reduce Risk.
In addition to the physical aspects complicated runs like this take up too way much mental energy which needs to be conserved throughout the long competition. It is exciting playing hard shots and overcoming the obstacles one by one but the big swings in mental excitement can be drain on resources.
Good shot makers can still win like this but its not the best long term plan for consistent winning pool.
In order to play pool like a professional try to move the white ball as little as possible. Plan out the routes to the next shot to allow for mistakes and inaccuracies.
