Practice: The "Clock"
This is an interesting mix of short and longish pots, rest-play, and good cue-ball control.
The diagram to the right shows how the table should be set when practiced by the less experienced player.
The purpose of this routine is to pot the reds while keeping the cue-ball within the circle.
The reds may be taken in any order, but the cue-ball should always be screwed back towards the centre of the table to make the next pot and positional stroke possible.
It will be found that these longish pots and short screw-backs are not so easy when using the rest.
As with most practice routines the only rule is that when a pot is missed you must replace the balls and start again.
