The eight-ball break in pool necessitates lining up the cue ball with the one ball straight on, a balanced stroke and a good follow through. Start the game of eight ball off with a good break with advice from a professional pool player in this free video on billiards.
Hi, I'm Max Eberle, and I'm here at Hard Times Billiards in Belleflower, California. And I'm here to show you the 8 ball break in pool. The materials you need are your cue, or break cue if you have one, cue ball, chalk, and a fully racked legal rack of 8 ball. So, I have my break here, first step is line up a cue ball, with the one ball straight on, now I want to get balanced on my stroking line and descend down into the stance. That's my second step, and then third, I just follow through as hard as I can, see what happens. I'm Max Eberle, and that's the 8 ball break in pool.
