Welcome Back. Let's Continue below with Part 1 of the 7 Day Basic training for the fundamentals of playing pool and Billiards. Scroll down and check out the Pictures and then refer to the text.
"Pool Billiards Instruction" is designed to Inform, and then Train You.
The pictures above show what many refer to as an open bridge.
Can You See how my Hand (palm) is resting flat on the table? Pay attention to how My Fingers are spread out for stability. Notice that My Thumb forms a Channel for the pool Cue to slide through.
You will notice my fingers almost standing on the table in the picture to the right. This is how you get high, low or middle (center) English on the Cue ball. Press fingers to table lifting hand for high and center. Flatten hand for low.
I do not recommend this bridge for most shots. I use it when stroking the ball extremely soft. (safeties and slow roll shots) This bridge is also handy for shooting over other balls and jump shots.
The next bridge we will talk about is the Tri-Pod Bridge. You make this bridge by starting with the Open Bridge (pictured above) and then wrapping Your Pointing Finger (next to Thumb) around the cue to touch Your Thumb. You then slide Your Middle finger (A.K.A. Bird) under the Thumb and Pointing finger.
Study the diagram below and practice forming this bridge around your cue.
The finger that you see in the picture to the right which is under my thumb is my middle finger. If you have never used the Tri-Pod Bridge, it will be uncomfortable in the beginning. Don't worry with a little practice, using it will become second nature.

We will define these shots in your second email installment. You will receive this, 6 days after the first one.
As with the open bridge you can raise the cue up and down on the cue ball by using your fingers against the table.
Let's review what we have learned in Your first email installment.
