Hi, I'm Max Eberle, and here we are at Hard Times Billiards in Belleflower, California. And I have some tips on pool strategy. You're going to need five object balls, your pool cue, a cue ball, and some chalk. First tip, making the eleven ball, because it's tough the ball in hand feeds right into saving the thirteen ball for last because it's near the 8 ball. So, I'm going to take my ball in hand, give myself a nice little angle, that's the first step. My second tip, which is to play backwards from the 8 ball. So, notice that the thirteen is close to where I want to be to make the 8 ball. So that means I want to make this ball first, then the thirteen, then the eight. So, there's two reasons why I want to make this eleven ball first, because it's the hardest shot, and because it leads into the shot that easily gets me on the eight. So, I'm going to take my ball in hand, give myself a nice little angle, that's the first step, position cue ball where I want it. Second step, line my stance up into the shot, third step is stay still, focus on the task at hand, and follow through. Now, here I am for my second tip, which is nice shot, nice position shot on the 8 ball. So again, I'm going to chalk up, line up my shot. Third step, just get down and execute the shot. I wouldn't mind that shot for the money every time. I'm Max Eberle, and that's pool strategy tips.
